In Coomaraswamy's own words: “In the first part of this article our intention was to show that what ‘repentance’ really means is a ‘change of mind,’ and the birth of a ‘new man’ who, so far from being overwhelmed by the weight of past errors, is no longer the man who committed them; and in the second part, to outline the doctrine of the duality of mind on which the possibility of a ‘change of mind”’ depends, and to demonstrate its universality; to point out, in other words, that the notion and necessity of a metanoia are inseparably bound up with the formulation of the Philosophia Perennis wherever we find them.”

Article
Christian traditionalist Rama Coomaraswamy summarizes the content of this essay by noting that "in recent years there has been a revival of interest in the Prayer of the Name of Jesus. Various groups…have embraced this form of prayer without any foundation in its theology, and without the 'protection' that a traditional and orthodox basis provides. The author of this paper makes no attempt to present a historical or scholarly text; rather he hopes to provide the reader with an outline or introduction that will place this form of prayer in its proper perspective.…What I hope to show is that this form of prayer is deeply rooted in the Traditions of the Western Church and has been so from time immemorial. Even more, I hope to show that it is a prayer eminently suitable to contemporary man and the present times."

Whitall Perry poses the question: "Why did Shakespeare with his enormous imagination and intelligence infused by a triple genius—spiritual, psychological, and poetico-dramatic—bother at the very summit of his career to write this play at all?" He replies to his own query with the goal of his article: "…The point of this paper is to demonstrate that the playwright, true to his usual alchemy, is delivering a threefold message simultaneously spiritual, cosmological, and social in bearing."

Article
Frithjof Schuon here offers some very direct observations on the major obstacles in the spiritual life for seekers within any tradition: "There is in the fallen nature of man a double infirmity and, spiritually speaking, a double obstacle; and this is on the one hand passion, which draws man outside himself while at the same time compressing him, and on the other hand pride, which shuts man within himself, while at the same time dispersing him." The article expounds upon these obstacles and how to overcome them.

Rama P. Coomaraswamy writes from the perspective of a modern day Catholic, discussing the confusing mesh for many modern practitioners of “‘pre-Vatican’ training—however poor — [and] the pronouncements and sermons of the modern clergy.” He describes the confusion, errors and assumptions present in much of modern religious literature and thought.

In this brief introduction to the art of relaxation, Ursula Darkins explains how the ability to relax requires one to become receptive; this effectively means learning to control the habits of tension which one develops as a result of the capacity for rational thought. From the ability to be receptive naturally arises the ability to concentrate, since concentration is a passive function, although it is rarely understood as such. Darkins concludes by discussing the relationship between degress of tension in the mind and the body.
