As-salāmu ʿalaykum my brothers

This is addressed to my fellow spiritual patricians who like myself have cast aside profane philosophy and literature for the purpose of ascending to a serious and sustained study of Traditional metaphysics. What have you been reading lately? What have you enjoyed? What do you recommend?

Me, I've been reading this book which I saw a helpful anon post in a ʿAbd al-Wāḥid Yaḥyá ﷺ thread, it's an interesting book which goes over various non-dual meditation and spiritual practices from a range of traditions including the Hindu, Egyptian, Orphic, Platonic, Hermetic, Kabbalistic and Christian teachings. Especially illuminating are the wide range of selections from various Christian mystics and metaphysicians which form around half of the book. You can read a PDF of it here.

Alaykumo salam dear brother,

After long considerations I have finally decided to heed the words of our brothers and to start reading the works of the esteemed scholar and messenger Yahya Guenon (Sallalahou Alayhi wa Sallaam) and I must admit I have been most impressed by His profane intellect. Truly a primate deserving only to be laughed at in the zoo and nothing else.

That's indeed true, Brother. Through positing that the infra-intellectual faculty- reason- is the superior one in man and the one we should rely on for true knowledge, basing ourselves upon the a priori "knowledge", he thus abased himself- as the Qu'ran says: لِيَقْطَعَ طَرَفًا مِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَوْ يَكْبِتَهُمْ فَيَنْقَلِبُوا خَائِبِينَ (That He may cut off a portion from among those who disbelieve, or abase them so that they should return disappointed of attaining what they desired.)

Again I'm asking -- why Guenon? Why traditionalism? How is this any different from any new age (for a lack of a better word) sectarianism? "hubris is the highest of human folly" -- but anon, why is reading the divine texts by thyself should be considered hubris? And isn't Guenon full of hubris himself if we follow that logic?

>>14768281
>Guénon (pbuh) retroactively refuted the entirety of the so-called "new-age" cults
Ok, cool. But how does that make Guenon's teachings and traditionalism in general a non "new age cult"? From what I've seen it looks very similar if not just like it.

Why would you want and\or need to read into a philosophy that is proceeded from false premises?
Why would you want and\or need to read into a philosophy that is anti-historical?
Why would you want and\or need to read into a philosophy that is unverifiable?
Why would you want and\or need to read into a philosophy that incorrectly interprets "tradition"?

As I assumed in my previous post might be some petty aesthetical reasoning. But that is some fascist-kshatriyas type of aesthetics. If you're into it, just go masturbate to the Italian army uniform, wild tigers and ancients statues while reading some actually good books.

If you want to read something that is similar to traditionalism -- read german romanticists (Novalis, Schlegel, Franz Hoffman). Guenon (like a huge number of modern neopagans by the way) was essentially inspired by them, adopted a lot from them, in fact, the very tone of traditionalism comes precisely from romanticism.
You can read ancient Icelandic literature, eddic songs and skaldic poetry, sagas, read academic studies on runology, mythology, history of Germanic peoples.
You can read Russian religious philosophy.
Or, if you want something radically different, start to study mathematics and logic.
If you normally master at least one of these topics, you can already develop your own metaphysics, which, believe me, will be much deeper and more original than the screwy shit of traditionalism, while being based not from scratch.

You guys are just proving some of my points right here. You guys are essentially treating Guenon as a prophet.
"There will be 30 dajjals among my Ummah. Each one will claim that he is a prophet; but I am the last of the Prophets (Seal of the Prophets), and there will be no Prophet after me." -- Said Muhammed. What do you make of it?

And also there is one question I have, could you please answer me this:
If a tradition as a supra human reality, acting like an "electric" lattice that structures the "magnetic" fields of human substance, is so global and universal, why does it degenerate into its own opposite? How is it that the global, universal system of traditionalism — the fundamental norm — loses control over society, some part of it (say, Europe, which, as a result, becomes the most powerful, most “overdeveloped”, most aggressive)?
And then what happens is what Guenon calls “invasion” in one of his books. There is an invasion of traditional civilizations, which, figuratively speaking, still survive on the sidelines of this poisonous center of profanism. And in the end, the whole world at some point becomes profane, which can be considered as the completion of the entire cycle and the last link of Kali Yuga.

I would like you to answer this and other questions, although I realize, that I am asking the wrong people here.

Hello Brothers. I felt the message in my soul that we are once again congregating to spread the wisdom of Guénon (pbuh). We are all one; one is us. We embrace the World soul and do not subscribe to the illusion of ego, that we live as a separate soul. Embrace and rejoice for Guénon (pbuh) has already taken the path for all of us to follow. To an ever higher Mountain, do we climb together.

I just wanna say that I bit on this meme a while back and really enjoy the way Guenon makes me think outside the Western mind set but, his takes on 'profane' philosophy are really bad. I've been told by a fellow Guenonian that he did not read the philosophers of 'philosophy' as it is as he spent most of his time reading foundational texts which is fine but getting through The Crisis of the Modern World gets difficult when he brings up concepts he's not entirely familiar with. That being said his critique on the West is really well done, I find the Intro. to Hindu Doctrines to be so much better and informational(considering the second half) than The Crisis of the Modern World. I'm planning on reading his magnum opus next and continuing with the second book on the study of hinduism. I can't say I agree with everything he says but his analysis and critique is so crisp, I can't even argue with it sometimes.

Cringe.
To become based one needs to ascend to a holistic understanding of his refutation of modernity and how it relates to (and is equivalent to) his refutation of profane 'philosophy', and the 'profanization' of crafts in general.
>I can't even argue with it sometimes
Based. No-one can. For even arguing with Guénon (pbuh) reduces you to a profane dualistic position, which is then immediately retroactively refuted.

well, it's actually somewhat compatible with catholicism, theologically, because of their doctrine of divine simplicity. but it still runs into issues even with them because of "extra ecclesium nulla salus". it's not compatible at all with orthodoxy because they reject divine simplicity, and they also subscribe to essence/energies distinction. their god is too active and personal to be identified with brahman. whereas, catholic concepts such as created grace are in a weird sort of way comparable to Brahman wielding the power of maya

Arguably, Guenon (pbuh) is far greater than a prophet and so does not even need to be one to be properly venerated with the highest honours; for a mere dualistic prophet is lacking in knowledge and requires dualistic revelation, while Guenon (pbuh) shares in the fullness of Allah (swt) and possesses His (swt) Divine attribute of Foreknowledge.

"What also surprised me a great deal was the regret that I had no biographical information about myself; this is something I have always formally opposed, and above all for a reason of principle, because, according to traditional doctrine, individualities count for nothing and must disappear entirely ... But, in spite of this, I am obliged at least to rectify erroneous assertions when they occur; For example, I cannot let it be said that I am "converted to Islam", because this way of presenting things is completely false; anyone who is aware of the essential unity of traditions is by this very fact "unconvertible" to anything, he is even the only one who is; but he can "settle down", if it is permitted to express himself in this way, in this or that tradition according to circumstances, and especially for reasons of an initiatory nature. I would like to add in this regard that my links with Islamic esoteric organizations are not something more or less recent as some people seem to think; in fact, they are almost 40 years old...".
- Letter from René Guénon to A. Daniélou, August 27, 1947, my translation - i'm french and my English is bad so sorry if there are mistakes

Retarded Muslims who try to grab his glory must get out. Guénon was Sufi at the end of his life, for purely practical reasons: he already had links with Sufi organizations and he wanted to leave France. The closest and most convenient was the Maghreb.

99.99% of the Muslims who try to seize Guénon's genius by saying "he converted to Islam lol" are refuted by the master himself in this letter and probably never read it, because they would make apostate any Muslim having 1/10th of Guénon's beliefs. Some points of his belief in brief:

1. that all religions are currently valid to lead to God and that Islam is only the most practical path of our time for a European
2. that deliverance (union with the Absolute, death of the ego, al-fana' ) is superior to salvation (entry into paradise), the latter being there for the masses when deliverance is the way of the elites
3. that the world is a part of God and that there is an Absolute superior to the personal God.
4. that it is desirable to achieve supra-individual states through intiation
5. that there is an esoteric path that transcends religious divisions

The Sufi Islam of Guénon is: yes.

The exoteric Islam of 99.99% of the Muslims on earth: it's no, it's shit, and it's probably the worst exotericism still alive.

Small message to the islamists who play the guenonfags to convert naive people to their shitty sect.

Relation is neither internal nor external. If it inheres in one of the two terms, it would not relate it with the other term; the same relation cannot inhere in both the terms as it is indivisible; and if it falls outside both the terms, it becomes a third term which requires another relation to relate it with the first two terms and so on ad infinitum. And without a real relation there is no real causation.
