web pagelinks Perennial Philosophy - by Brent Dean Robbins

"The term "Perennial Philosophy" was coined by Leibniz, but popularized by Aldous Huxley, according to whom it pertains to a primary concern "with the one, divine Reality substantial to the manifold world of things and lives and minds. But the nature of this one Reality is such that it cannot be directly or immediately apprehended except by those who have chosen to fulfill certain conditions, making themselves loving, pure in heart, and poor in spirit." In the spirit of Aldous Huxley, this page explores Eastern and Western traditions of mysticism and religion."

The Other Perennial Philosophy
by Alan M. Laibelman
The book that popularised the concept of the Perennial Philosophy in our time. The emphasis is on the moral life and following the spiritual path, with only the first chapter dealing with the universality of the spiritual-monistic understanding (identity of Soul and God) More metaphysical in approach than the proceeding; sets forward the basic or minimal metaphysics that the author claims is at the heart of all pre-modernity conceptions of reality - the Great Chain of Being with its four levels of self and cosmos I haven't yet read this one, but the Amazon review looks interesting
