'Tradition'

in Traditional Studies & Arts

The word ‘Tradition’ is not used in the everyday sense of signifying something connected to the past. Here the word ‘Tradition’ is used in a particular sense, where it signifies a sacred ‘world-view’, according to which both Nature and Man are seen as having their roots in and as manifestations of a Divine Source. It is this world-view derived from Revelation and the teachings of the Prophets and the Saints, which underlies Traditional Wisdom, Culture & Art.
