The first conference ever held in South America on traditional studies took place in Lima, Peru, in 1985, entitled 'Encuentro de Culturas' consisting of a week of lectures and discussions. The definitive text of all the English papers have been edited and are presented in this volume along with the message sent to the conference by Frithjof Schuon, the foremost authority on traditional metaphysics and the perennial philosophy today.

A total of ten papers are re-printed in this book including papers by Huston Smith, Rama Coomaraswamy, Syed Hossein Nasr and Martin Lings.
