Francis ... let me explain something ... if I so chose, I could do what you are doing, going through Hindu doctrinal terms explaining them as half-grasped concepts that are clearly stated in Christian metaphysics. Where would that get us? But that's not in the spirit of Interfaith. If you want to get some good guidelines, may I suggest the Sophia Perennis? The authors in mind are René Guenon (Sufi, but a master of Hindu metaphysics), Fritjof Schuon (Sufi) Marco Pallis (Tibetan Buddhism). These have been my guiding lights, and in the spirit of the Way of the Heart I delight in the correspondences between traditions, but never go as far as the elitism that you're currently engaged in. I have realised that 'the Absolute' can be, and is too often, just another idol and a false God, one that appeals to the intellectually-inclined. I have come to see all creation as symbol, and as such, the Absolute can be experienced', immediately and Immanently, through the contemplation of such. As long as one holds 'the absolute' as superior to anything other, and the world at arm's length, one is still caught up in the veils of illusion.
