The Best Guide to Eastern Philosophy & Religion provides a thorough discussion of the most widely practiced belief systems of the East. Author Diane Morgan understands how to direct the materialistic, linear way of Western thinking toward a comprehension of the cyclical, metaphysical essence of Eastern philosophy. With an emphasis on the tenets and customs that Western seekers find most compelling, the text is accessible to beginning students yet sophisticated enough for upper level students.
Morgan covers Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism, as well as the less-widely practiced faiths of Shintoism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Zoroastrianism. Also covered are the fundamentals of the tantric path to liberation and the relationship between sex and seeking, the true meaning of Feng Shui, the philosophical underpinnings of Hatha Yoga and the Taoist connection to the martial art of Tai chi chuan.
