This 2-disc DVD is the first video biography of Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998), the foremost author of the Perennialist school of comparative religion, and one of the most gifted contributors to the body of knowledge on the sacred, spirituality, and religious traditions during the twentieth century.

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
