Huston Smith's masterpiece explores the essential elements and teachings of the world's predominant faiths, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and the native traditions of Australia, Africa, Oceania, and the Americas. Emphasizing the inner--rather than the institutional--dimension of these religions, Smith devotes special attention to Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, Sufism, and the teachings of Jesus. He convincingly conveys the unique appeal and gifts of each of the traditions and reveals their hold on the human heart and imagination.

I agree wholehaertedly about "The World's Religions" being a great book. But what the heck do ramblings like "violating the citizens rights here in the United states as well as stealing money world wide Binary code is only a form of Moris Code by send through the air way and through cable. The Pima County Library Server is hacked " mean?

By reading this book I have come to understand that our own government has lied to the masses about the Islamic religion and that they are generating hate for the people of that religion which are Muslims. Why is there 2 profiles for this book they are overlaying the screen then are going to try to erase my postings. Remember Red Square in china our government is using the internet the same way and violating the citizens rights here in the United states as well as stealing money world wide Binary code is only a form of Morris Code by send through the air way and through cable. The Pima County Library Server is hacked and is an attempt to throw the United States And the world under The New World Orders hands by allowing terroristic acts here in the US and world wide. Local law enforcement and library notified and nothing is done. Looks like religion is going away as far as your right to choose which church you will go to. The Pima County Public Library has been hacked and WiFI illegally linked by linking all computers together to bypass the governments firewall and federal crimes are being committed behind their firewall including by limited to identity thief, fraud, embezzlement, terrorist acts, bullying , slander, tapering with evidence, violating voting rights, tampering with votes for local elections as well as other political issues
