Joseph Campbell began his comparative study of the world‚Äö√Ñ√¥s religions with a chance meeting with the renowned Indian theosophist Jeddu Krishnamurti on a trans-Atlantic steamer. Though Campbell was deeply fascinated by mythologies and religions from every continent, Asia‚Äö√Ñ√¥s potent mix of theologies captured his imagination more than any other, and offered him paths to understanding the essence of myth.
In Myths of Light, Campbell explores the core philosophies and mythologies of the East, comparing them through vivid examples and stories to each other and to those of the West. A worthy companion to Thou Art That and to Campbell‚Äö√Ñ√¥s Asian Journals, this volume conveys complex insights through warm, accessible storytelling, revealing the intricacies and secrets of his subject with his typical enthusiasm.
