VEDANTA FOR MODERN MAN

New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1951. First Edition. Hardcover. While living in Hollywood, Isherwood (1904-86) was introduced to Vedanta (Upanishad-centered philosophy) and the circle of Hindu Swami Prabhavananda by his friend Aldous Huxley. Adopting Prabhavananda as his own guru, Isherwood visited the Swami every Wednesday for the next 35 years and collaborated with him on a translation of the Bhagavad Gita. He also took over editorship of Vedanta and the West, a bimonthly journal concerned with the theory and practice of Vedanta teachings and their relevance to Western intellectual life. This is the second collection of articles from the journal, including contributions by Isherwood, Huxley, Prabhavananda, Gerald Heard, Alan W. Watts, and many others. Inscribed by Isherwood on the front flyleaf. Octavo. Original gray buckram boards over a blue cloth spine, with gilt titles. Minor edgewear wear to the boards. The dust jacket, which features a Vedanta Press cancel on the front flap, is price-clipped and browned, with a bit of edgewear and chipping, and two tape repairs to the verso; else about very good. Very good / Good. Item #66200
