Apa yang membedakan buku ini dari buku-sejarah-agama-agama yang ada? Dengan kata lain, apakah sumbangan uniknya?

Huston Smith menghadirkan unsur-unsur penting sejarah dan inti-inti ajaran agama-agama besar dunia dalam bentuk ilustrasi. Ia melakukannya karena alasan sahih: di hampir sepanjang sejarahnya, umat manusia menemukan teks-teks suci mereka dalam rupa lukisan, patung, pahatan, tarian, nyanyian ... hal-hal yang bernilai seni—melebihi dalam wujud teks. Teks di buku ini berfungsi sebagai semacam komentar bagi ilustrasi dan penjabaran yang menginspirasinya. Alasan itu menjadikan buku ini begitu setia pada subjek kajiannya.

Selain menguatkan pentingnya seni dalam menyajikan ide-ide keagamaan, ilustrasi-ilustrasi di buku ini—kebanyakan dari abad pertengahan—menegaskan kesadaran kita bahwa agama bukanlah genangan air keruh dan kelak akan kering, melainkan aliran air dinamis yang menjadi sumber tempat para pemeluknya melepaskan dahaga. Ilustrasi-ilustrasi bernilai seni itu membuka mata hati kita pada transendensi dan mengajak kitamasuk ke masa lalu yang lebih luas dan lebih kaya, menjadi semacam jendela, tempat kita melongok dan mencicipi keindahan dan keagungan, dan menjadi cermin yang memantulkan kondisi agama pada masa mendatang.

Lebih dari itu, buku ini menaruh rasa hormat begitu dalam terhadap nilai dan
kebijaksanaan agama-agama. Huston Smith menempatkan diri sebagai “orang luar” yang mendekati nilai dan sejarah agama-agama dengan penuh simpati.

Read information about the author

Ebook Agama-Agama Manusia: Edisi Bergambar read Online! Smith was born in Suzhou, China to Methodist missionaries and spent his first 17 years there. He taught at the Universities of Colorado and Denver from 1944–1947, moving to Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri for the next ten years, and then Professor of Philosophy at MIT from 1958–1973. While at MIT he participated in some of the experiments with entheogens that professor Timothy Leary conducted at Harvard University. He then moved to Syracuse University where he was Thomas J. Watson Professor of Religion and Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Philosophy until his retirement in 1983 and current emeritus status. He now lives in the Berkeley, CA area where he is Visiting Professor of Religious Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

During his career, Smith not only studied, but practiced Vedanta Hinduism, Zen Buddhism (studying under Goto Zuigan), and Sufism for over ten years each. He is a notable autodidact.

As a young man, Smith, of his own volition, after suddenly turning to mysticism, set out to meet with then-famous author Gerald Heard. Heard responded to Smith's letter, invited him to his Trabuco College (later donated as the Ramakrishna Monastery) in Southern California, and then sent him off to meet the legendary Aldous Huxley. So began Smith's experimentation with meditation, and association with the Vedanta Society in Saint Louis under the auspices of Swami Satprakashananda of the Ramakrishna order.

Via the connection with Heard and Huxley, Smith eventually experimented with Timothy Leary and others at the Center for Personality Research, of which Leary was Research Professor. The experience and history of the era are captured somewhat in Smith's book Cleansing the Doors of Perception. In this period, Smith joined in on the Harvard Project as well, an attempt to raise spiritual awareness through entheogenic plants.

He has been a friend of the XIVth Dalai Lama for more than forty years, and met and talked to some of the great figures of the century, from Eleanor Roosevelt to Thomas Merton.

He developed an interest in the Traditionalist School formulated by Rene Guenon and Ananda Coomaraswamy. This interest has become a continuing thread in all his writings.

In 1996, Bill Moyers devoted a 5-part PBS special to Smith's life and work, "The Wisdom of Faith with Huston Smith." Smith has produced three series for public television: "The Religions of Man," "The Search for America," and (with Arthur Compton) "Science and Human Responsibility." His films on Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, and Sufism have all won awards at international film festivals.

His latest DVD release is The Roots of Fundamentalism - A Conversation with Huston Smith and Phil Cousineau.

IBRAHIM

Black and White

GRACE

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.
