Question by : The Hindu and Buddhist traditions had already said all about what the modern philosophers tried to say?
Philosophers like Descartes, Plato, Socrates, Kant and so on came after the Hindu and Vedic traditions and these guys just involuntarily plagiarised philosophies that are said in Hinduism about the nature of reality but these modern philosophers get all the credit for what was said in the Vedas and Upanishads. Why is that?

Question by AS: If you placed Mystics from all the great religous traditions in the same room?
Would there be silence and there would be nothing to disagree about?
Please share your insights on Mysticism be they Christian, Jewish, Islamic or other.

“God enters into you with all that is his, as far as you have stripped yourself of yourself in all things. It is here that you should begin, whatever the cost, for it is here that you will find true peace, and nowhere else.”
Meister Eckhar -Talks of Instruction

Best answer:

Answer by Zimmia
Honestly I think you’re probably on to something. As a mystic myself, I tend to have a larger view of spirituality and religion than those who are taught doctrine and don’t explore on their own.

I think there would be disagreement, but I don’t think it would be anywhere near as violent a confrontation as we can see here on these boards, for example.

Question by medzthemedik: What magical traditions are there besides occultism/hermetism?

Best answer:

Answer by Tahuti Reincarnate
Occult means secret, so all magical traditions would be “occult,” as well as many nonmagical traditions. (like inner order Jesuit, Opus Dei, Mormon, or Scientology rites)
Hermeticism is very specifically the teachings and traditions that developed out of the teachings of Thrice Magical Hermes, an Egyptian-Greek mythological ‘Christ,’ whose teachings can be found in Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Modern Paganism.
So, other traditions.
1. Shamanism: This is a pre-hermetic occult tradition that can be found in all tribal cultures today. Many Native Americans have continued to practice their Shamanic religions into modern society, and many African tribes keep theirs by refusing to assimilate into modern culture.
2. Witchcraft: This has always been a less than accepted magical system, usually practiced by women. Witches were held in awe, and feared by such differeing cultures as ancient Athens, Rome, medeival Paris, and London, African tribal cultures (where Shamanism is accepted religion, and Witchcraft is unaccepted) and modern America. Witchcraft very often explores feminine aspects of magic.
3. The magic found within the Tao is not Hermetic at all. So the I-Ching will be a famous example of non-hermetic occultism.
