Book Description:
Ren Gu non (1886 1951) is undoubtedly one of the luminaries of the twentieth century, whose critique of the modern world has stood fast against the shifting sands of recent philosophies. His oeuvre of 26 volumes is providential for the modern seeker: pointing ceaselessly to the perennial wisdom found in past cultures ranging from the Shamanistic to the Indian and Chinese, the Hellenic and Judaic, the Christian and Islamic, and including also Alchemy, Hermeticism, and other esoteric currents, at the same time it directs the reader to the deepest level of religious praxis, emphasizing the need for affiliation with a revealed tradition even while acknowledging the final identity of all spiritual paths as they approach the summit of spiritual realization. This is the only biographical introduction to Gu non currently available in English. Sophia Perennis will soon publish another biography, The Simple Life of Ren Gu non, written shortly after Gu non's death by his close friend and publisher Paul Chacornac. After a lonely childhood, often interrupted by ill health, Gu non navigated the seductive half truths of occultism toward a deeper, unified vision offering a way out from the confusion and fragmentation of our time. Against the seemingly inexorable process of dissolution the twentieth century experienced, Gu non pointed to the transcendent unity of all religious faiths and the abiding Truth that contains them all.
