ORIENTAL MYTHOLOGY

The Masks of God, Volume 2

It has perhaps never been more important than it is today to understand the world around us and the world’s religions. It is now well understood that health, climate, and economic issues are truly global. On completing The Masks of God, Campbell wrote, “Its main result for me has been the confirmation of a thought I have long and faithfully entertained: of the unity of man, not only in its biology, but also in its spiritual history, which has everywhere unfolded in the manner of a single symphony . . . irresistibly advancing to some kind of mighty climax, out of which the next great movement will emerge.” Upon the publication of this volume, in which Campbell delves into the fables and folklore of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Shintoism, Professor Robert Gorham Davis of Columbia University wrote, “It is impossible to read this startling and entertaining book without an enlarged sense of total human possibility.” Oriental Mythology remains mesmerizing in its eloquence, its scope, and its tantalizing vision of what may next emerge.
