Guenon was smarter then virtually every poster ever on /lit/, was a auto-didact genius, phenomenal with languages, knew his western philosophy extremely well not to mention esoteric primordial metaphysics. If you even for a moment make the mistake of thinking there is anything that one could possibly critique him for it's only because you didn't read or understand him. Guenon is the most important European writer in the entire 300 years of the 18th-21st centuries, you're talking about a literal God. Fucking pseuds

No one in academia has heard of this man. He's a non entity.

He was the Foucault of traditionalism cherry picking bits of history and religion that he thought was the best

Correct, and Foucault was the Guenon of Traditionalism.

i don't fully understand his views on initiation, but seeing that many of us weren't initiated through network but reading, maybe he wasn't right about that

Initiation is the relation of a spiritual father to a spiritual child like in orthodoxy.
There is a real spiritual influence, a real spiritual enlightenment and real spiritual teaching etc...
It's not mental, it's spiritual.

My very dear guenonians, if, like me, you want to get a real initiation, become orthodox and monk.

>> No.13900109

>Guenon was smarter then virtually every poster ever on /lit/
Let's face it fellas, that's not very impressive

>> No.13900124

I have to say Guenon said there were initiation in orthodoxy with the prayer of Jesus/of the heart.
And indeed, it makes no doubt, because in orthodoxy there is generations of saint. Look about the mount athos.

If you really think Guenon is smart, you should be smart enough to look after a real initiation. And there is in orthodoxy (in islam, soufism is either degenerate or persecuted by sunnites now).

then why could he not grapple with Hegel or Heidegger?

Initiation is like tuning a musical instrument. You can't do it without using tuning fork or already tuned instrument as reference.

Do I have to become a monk?

>> No.13900211

If you can, if you want, if that is your calling. If you don't know a spiritual father will help you to find out.
It's of course better to find a good spiritual father adapted to you (every monastery has one, the most spiritually advanced monk). But you can still have a spiritual father as laity, and they can teach you the prayer of the heart I think.
But for those who want to achieve theosis (deification), monachism is the royal way.

Do you literally believe in the supposed miracles of the Bible, such as Jesus rising from the dead or Mary being a virgin or is the Orthodox church smart enough to allow mythology? What about perennialism, is this an accepted position in the church?

>Guenon is the most important European writer in the entire 300 years of the 18th-21st centuries, you're talking about a literal God
This HAS to be bait.
No one in the real world cares about "muh academia". They're nothing but a bunch of repulsive failures with shit opinions.

He's a traitor to the West. A degenerate suhuman frog with delusional tendencies. Means nothing to philosophy.

>> No.13900333

Let's admit you are ready to say Jesus was inferior to Mohamed, then, good luck going to Iran, learning arab and fitting in the community.

In the contrary in orthodoxy, there is Jesus, the son of God, not mohamed, the simple prophet. And orthodox have founded monasteries in the west.

(Guenon became sufi just because he couldn't go to India and because it was easier for him at this time to get in contact with islam through the french colonies than to get in contact with orthodoxy).

Nothing is impossible to the One that made the possibilities (God makes what He want's with the rules He made).

Arab is the sacred language of islam, if you didn't know. Because their book comes from the sky this language is very important in this religion, in their theology and in their initiation. It's not only a liturgical language like in christianity.
But yes, I should have said to you that you would have to learn the arabic AND the persian.
