Man's awareness of Time
has been articulated in ancient and modern civilizations through
cosmologies, metaphysics, philosophy, religion, theology and the arts.
Coomaraswamy propounds that though we live in Time, our deliverance lies
in eternity. All religions make this distinction between what is merely
"everlasting" (or "perpetual") and what is eternal. To probe into this
mystery Coomaraswamy provides us with a detailed account of the
teachings of each of the main world religions. Present edition embodies
all marginal corrections which Coomaraswamy made on the first edition
1947 in Ascona, Switzerland.
