Frithjof Schuon is best known as the foremost spokesman of the religio perennis and as a philosopher in the metaphysical current of Shankara and Plato. Schuon was born in 1907 in Basle, Switzerland, of German parents. As a youth, he went to Paris, where he studied for a few years before undertaking a number of trips to North Africa, the Near East and India in order to contact spiritual authorities and witness traditional cultures.

Robert Bolton "My main interest was more like a sense of mission, so much so that I could never go very far with social activities without feeling that I was deserting my post...What attracted me was not just what some metaphysicians had said, but the experience that their words conveyed. My aim was to recreate that experience and to improve my understanding of the big ideas..."

Joseph Epes Brown is the foremost authority among traditional authors on the traditions of the Native Americans. A seminal event in the life of Brown was his meeting with the Lakota Sioux holy man, Black Elk, who realized the exceptional spiritual qualities of the young white man who had come to seek and understand the traditional wisdom of the Sioux.
