Publisher Comments:

In search of the "truth", Gibran could find no single religious tradition which completely revealed its intention. Thus he wove together insights from Eastern Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, American Transcendentalism, and the folklore of his native Lebanon to create his own universal "Anthem of Humanity"--which is this superb selection.

Synopsis:

For Gibran, no single religious tradition revealed the truth, so he wove together insights from Eastern Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, American Transcendentalism and folklore from his native Lebanon. This is a collection of 24 meditations, essays and prose poems on the spiritual life.
