Eastern Metaphors of the Eternal

“Campbell excels in telling the stories themselves — which feature brahmins and yogis, gods and monsters, as they disguise themselves as charioteers, eat themselves up and spy on mortals — and in his glancing descriptions of traditions foreign to us: Japanese ‘play language,’ an exceedingly polite mode of speech, for instance, or Jainism’s insistence on quenching ‘all desire for life.’. . . A solid primer.”
