Since Perennialism isnt an Orthodox "doctrine" it will change depending on who you ask, but Generally no. Perennialists dont believe 'all religions are true' It is definetely well within the bounds of being a perennialist to consider certain religions superior to others, or consider some religions to be completely made up for monetary/political reasons, or for no reason at all.

he is critical of certain religions and their practices (especially pseudo religions). But generally speaking, any of the major religions of the world can lead to God, provided they are practised the way they are "supposed" to be practised, according to the "original" tradition, that was handed down. He did believe though that Islam was the most direct and easiest route for finding God.

I guess you're referring to the Abrahamic religions. Well of course they are similar since they were heavily influenced by the Jews. Moreover Islam is just a mismash of Christanity and the Talmud, a real irony since muslims hate both with a passion.

>Despite islam literally denying sacred texts from the religion i'm claiming is a pathway to truth
Quran 5.48. We have sent down to you the Book with the truth, confirming whatever of the Book was revealed before it, and guarding over it. Judge, then, between them by what God has sent down, and do not follow their desires and caprices away from the truth that has come to you. For each, have We appointed a clear way of life and a comprehensive system. And if God had so willed, He would surely have made you a single community; but in order to test you by what He granted to you. Strive, then, together as if competing in good works. To God is the return of all of you, and He will then make you understand about what you have differed on.

Brainlet? you must be retarded. All religions are sacred identities, and no religion is superior than any other. Islam i a rich tradition in and of itself, that you media-infested boomers won't get.

That its founder was illiterate is a good thing, since it shows that he was a master of poetry to remember his revelations and pass it to others. He wasn't a nomad, retard. He was a merchant who the pagans forced out of their city, of course he was going to raid the oppressor who persecuted and stole from his community, it was fair.

I'm just urprised he didn't kill them in his final conquest of Makkah.

>> No.14251902

On the surface, Hinduism is polytheistic. But people versed in the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita, and certain schools of Hinduism can (and very often do) make the claim that it is Monotheistic, with Brahman being the absolute Godhead, and all the lesser Gods being manifestations of him.

In Abrahamism, we would call these "lesser Gods" Angels or Archangels, rather than Gods.

>> No.14254048

The truth is Guenon is popular among Satanic elite because his philosophy promotes antinomian tendencies, which they adore. Both light and dark are seen as two sides of the same coin of absolute unity, so one is aligned with god while either sacrificing children or helping them. To kill or aid one is one and the same in the absolute.
Thinkers like Guenon and Crowley are immensely popular among the black nobility, CIA, and so forth. It helps them feel validated in their actions of human, child, and organ trafficking. A lot of Guenon's writings also hint at heavy nihilistic undertones.

Judaism isn’t as accessible as one might think, at least not the traditional elements.

I think it’s only similar to Islam as a whole in regard to polygamy. It’s specifically the traditional, perhaps more mystical aspects of these religions that Guenon is concerned with. I’m also not entirely sure Mormonism had much of a presence in Guenon’s knowledge sphere at the time. I won’t claim to be a historian of Mormonism so I don’t know, but that’s my guess.
