This greatly expanded second issue features essays by Patrick Boch on how the Vedic knowledge of India can be put into practice by modern traditionalists- Sergio Knipe discussing ideas of cyclical history in ancient Egyptian myth- Robert Bullen on the re-emergence of the monastic lifestyle- Charles Upton comparing the Sufi philosophy of Frithjof Schuon and Javad Nurbakhsh- David Griffiths on the reality versus the mythology of European withcraft- Julius Evola, in a previously untranslated essay, on his meeting with Gerald Gardner, the founder of Wicca- Peter Widukind on the mystical power of music- and Karlo Valois on the lifestyle of the modern warrior, as well as music and book reviews, and letters to the editor in response to our first issue. This second issue more than doubles in size the amount of material contained in the first, and much more care was put into the quality of its editing and production. It also focuses more on the inner, as opposed to the outward, political struggle against the modern world. Profusely illustrated, it will provide much nourishment for the soul starving in the parched landscape of a secularised and disenchanted world.
