During the last three years of his life Frithjof Schuon wrote approximately 3,500 short poems in his mother tongue German. These poems, which have been called “metaphysical music,” cover every possible aspect of spiritual doctrine, practice and virtue, as well as the role and function of beauty. They express every conceivable subtlety of spiritual and moral counsel – and this is not merely in general terms, but with uncanny intimacy, detail and precision. They express the same unerring sharpness of intellect, profundity, comprehensiveness and compassion which one finds in the range of Schuon’s better-known dialectical writings.



"..here we listen to the thinker who, far from the intricate and complex sentences of his learned prose works, sings the simple prayers of the longing soul: God is the center, the primordial ground which comprehends everything, manifesting Himself through the colorful play of His creations.”
—Annemarie Schimmel; author of Mystical Dimensions of Islam



"The beauty of Schuon's poetry touches upon that luminous center where the way of knowledge and the path of love converge."
—Patrick Laude, editor of The Music of the Sky: An Anthology of Spiritual Poetry
