The Great Triad

Rene Guenon (Author)

This is the first English translation of one of Rene Guenon's most important works, and constitutes a major contribution to the field of traditional studies. What is owed to Guenon for having outlined so clearly the causes of the spiritual crisis of the modern world, and for having offered remedies that are uncompromising in their application, is realized more and more by each generation of his readers. For Guenon presents an approach to religion that satisfies at once the highest level of intellectual rigour and the deepest level of religious practice in the context of a perennial wisdom that acknowledges the integral way of each revealed religion as a path to the totality of Truth as the rays of the Sun can be traced to their luminous source.

The Great Triad is centred on Taoism while being characteristically rich in illuminating cross-references to other traditions, for the ternary in question - Heaven, Earth and Man - is an inescapable feature of all spirituality. Seldom can the multiple levels of significance of a single symbol have been expounded in such profound and meaningful detail so as to reveal that, when properly assimilated, the triad symbol possesses the possibility of functioning as an initiatory means of support for inner realization.

About the author

Rene Guenon

Rene Guenon (1886-1951) is without doubt one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Frithjof Schuon has said of him that he had the central function of restoring the great principles of traditional metaphysics to Western awareness and he added that Guenon gave proof of a universality of understanding that for centuries had no parallel in the Western world.
