    I remember some years ago you recommended reading Rene Guenon’s “Introduction to the study of Hindu doctrines” as a good start for understanding what metaphysics is, namely the first part that deals with generalities and not the bulk of actual Hindu peculiarities. I found it interesting you haven’t mentioned it here. I followed the advice back then and it seemed good to me. Have you changed your mind? Is it something you would still recommend?

      Guenon sees metaphysics as superior to any other form of knowledge and considers the identification (“realization” as he calls it) with the Origin through knowledge to be summa summarum of human existence. I don’t follow him in that respect for all kinds of reasons. But, other than that, precision of his definitions is hard to match.
