The Universe as Symbols and Sign: An Essay on Mysticism in the Eastern Church

Nikolai Velimirovich

“Many people in the West think of the mysticism of Eastern Christianity as something unreal and imaginary, as a dreamy and vague thinking in the clouds. I will try in the following pages to prove the contrary to that opinion. Our Christian mysticism is wholly different from Buddhist mysticism just as much as it is from modern materialism. It is a vision of realities beyond and through transparent symbols and signs of the material universe. This is one of the fundamental teachings of our ancient church of Christ, based upon Scripture and the Fathers.”
