The Perennial Philosophy
Some would say that though the liturgy changes, the language differs, and the emphasis varies, at their core, the world's great religions are strikingly similar. It is these similarities that are examined in The Perennial Philosophy, a term coined by Aldous Huxley to describe the common ground of the great world religious traditions.
In this thought-provoking film, writer and director Elda Hartley takes the viewer on a global spiritual journey woven together with words from sacred text and renowned spiritual teachers who articulate with poetry and power the commonalities between Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Taoism.
"At a time when creedal fanaticism is rampant and bloodshed in the name of religion is undermining the stability of the world, The Perennial Philosophy speaks importantly in the name of peace, good will and world unity."
- John White, author and educator
