Religion: general

Time and eternity are concepts with which every one is familiar; the former because it reserves as a unit of measurement and enables the preparation of table of days, weeks, months, years and so on, while the latter is usually associated with the idea of everlasting. If one thinks more deeply, it will be seen that time which appears to be measurable is beyond measurement and nothing is everlasting. Save the supreme principle that guides life, there is nothing which is immeasurable and eternal. Thus time and eternity, being associated with the supreme principle, attracted the attention of great religious thinkers. Here in this book, Ananda K. Coomaraswamy has dealt with these two concepts as discussed by Hindu, Buddhist, Greek, Christian and Islamic philosophers.
