Introduction to the Study of the Hindu Doctrines
Introduction to the Study of the Hindu Doctrines
Description
About the Book:

The present work is reissue of English translation of Rene Guenon's work, Introduction Generale a I'Etude des Doctrines Hindoues.

This work instead of treating the Hindu doctrines as a "special field of research" with a view to derive results that could be of least importance to ordinary men takes an entirely different approach. The author starts out with quite other ends in view requiring an entirely different method for their realization, as well as an entirely different angle of approach. As a result this book just as well serves as a key to the understanding of any of the traditional doctrines, or of them all. As for the "Hindu doctrines" which cover only one part of the work have simply been selected to exemplify the principles and workings of traditional civilization.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
