slide 3 of 9

This is taken from a transcript of a 1995 interview with the eminent

Frithjof Schuon: The religious, dogmatic or theological perspective is based on revelation; its main purpose is, not to explain the nature of things or the universal principles, but to save man from sin and damnation, and also, to establish a realistic social equilibrium.
