Description

The present book is a comparative and evaluative study of Hindu, Christian and Jewish mysticism. Not much work is done in the field, though there are sketchy studies of any two of these schools and not all together Again the author has taken within his scope, not only the three schools of Vedanta, but has considered the four important Upanisad viz. Isa, Kena, Katha and Mundaka.

He has then dealt with Christianity, with reference to the New Testament and the Christian Mystics. He has drawn on their works copiously. Being a practicing Jew himself, his study of Judaism and Kabbalah is thorough and gives a complete insight into these religious systems. The most important addition is the study of a great work, The Cloud of Unknowing by an unknown author, who appears to be a Catholic Christian and who chose to remain anonymous.
