Mircea Eliade


I find Mircea Eliade's The Sacred & The Profane to be a wonderful book on the modality of spiritual experience. I am currently reading the book for my Asian Religion class before we discuss readings on Islam, Buddhist Scriptures and Classical Hinduism. I find Eliade's reading to be quite wonderfully written. Although--admittedly--I often have to read passages over and over again. I look forward to the discussions here.

I have only read his Yoga:immortalite et liberte. It remains for me
a classic text and a guideline in the jungle of fake spiritualism and - often dangerous - "meditation"-"techniques".
If one is keep his mind healthy and is prepared to fight the forces
of evil, this book is rational and sober,and offers sufficient information and insights -as well as being very thorough and exhaustive- to be able to ward off the crooks and vendors of all possible "pseudoisms".
