Master mythologist Joseph Campbell had a genius for finding the unifying symbols and metaphors in apparently distinct cultures and traditions. In Myths of Light: Eastern Metaphors of the Eternal, Campbell explores, with his characteristic clarity and humor, the principle that underlies all the great religions of India and East Asia, from Jainism and Hinduism to Buddhism and Taoism: the transcendent World Soul.
Joseph Campbell began his comparative study of the world’s religions with a chance meeting with the renowned Indian theosophist Jeddu Krishnamurti on a trans-Atlantic steamer. Though Campbell was deeply fascinated by mythologies and religions from every continent, Asia’s potent mix of theologies captured his imagination more than any other, and offered him paths to understanding the essence of myth.
In Myths of Light, Campbell explores the core philosophies and mythologies of the East, comparing them through vivid examples and stories to each other and to those of the West. A worthy companion to Thou Art That and to Campbell’s Asian Journals, this volume conveys complex insights through warm, accessible storytelling, revealing the intricacies and secrets of his subject with his typical enthusiasm.

This book is so profound
This book is so profound that I decided to buy a hardcopy and add it to my own personal library. I'd recommend any of my friends and family members to read it. Joseph Campbell is one of my mentors. He is my favorite Mythologist/Symbologist/Philosopher I love how he says "Follow your Bliss"...he was such a genius and his genius still lives on through his teachings.

Great content, but quite a bit of recycling...
I am a huge admirer of Joseph Campbell. The content enclosed is gold, but I feel that it is only fair to warn those of you on a budget that a significant portion of the writing is almost word-for-word from Campbell's broader, more well-known works.
The narrator is serviceable and neither distracts nor adds to the audiobook. Of course, there is nothing like recordings of Campbell lecturing and being interviewed himself.
