This is a learned book and the author discusses a great variety of religious and philosophical ideas, indian and western, ancient and modern. But I'm not sure what he is really trying to say. He insinuates that indian ideas may have influenced the beginnings of western mysticism and at times he seems to be trying to validate the mystical awe of hinduism as a path toward peace and understanding. But all of it remains much too vague to be interesting.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195624564, Paperback)

This challenging and beautifully written book describes the leading ideas of Indian philosophy and religion. It traces the probable influence of Indian mysticism on Greek thought and Christian development, through Alexandrian Judaism, Christian Gnosticism, and Neo-Platonism. The author argues that Christianity, which arose out of an eastern background and became wedded to Graeco-Latin culture, will find rebirth in a renewed alliance with this Eastern heritage.
