I am a great admirer of this man. He is a modern day prophet speaking nothing but the truth.

His take on Democracy in the modern world

i tried reading this guy and other european philosophers and found them difficult to read, the way they are written in english.
i found the writings of al ghazali inspiring, easy to understand and poetic. maybe to do with the translations.

It's not just Rene Guenon who thinks this but Plato and Socrates too

He is a great confluence of Sufism, esoterism, mysticism, Hinduism and Taoism.
His biography is inspiring. Leaving France for Egypt is impressive.

Rightly pointed out to be a fountainhead of inspiration.
