The Traditionalist School once embraced Hindu members, including Ananda K. Coomaraswamy and A. K. Saran; a prominent Buddhist member, Marco Pallis; and an element of Judaism through Leo Schaya (although Schaya himself was a Muslim), through his book The Universal Meaning of the Kabbalah [Sophia Perennis] and his important article “The Eliatic Function” which appeared in Studies in Comparative Religion. But who are the Hindu, the Muslim, the Jewish Traditionalists/Perennialists of today?
Traditionalism has become largely a “movement” of Christians and Muslims, with Muslims predominating. Are there presently any Hindu, Buddhist or Jewish authorities today who are both entirely traditional and possibly open to a “perennialist” perspective?
