Schuon and the Feathered Sun

The "feathered sun" (see www.perennial.org/images/FeatheredSun.gif) is in effect the "logo" of the Maryamiyya. In Against the Modern World, I imply that it was used only after 1981 (p. 171). In fact, I am told by Rodger Cunningham, it figures prominently on the cover of the 1974 Schuonian anthology The Sword of Gnosis, and may have been used before that by Studies in Comparative Religion.

The emphasis on Native American religion, then, seems to have started even earlier than I thought.

This symbol is on my 1965 edition of Schuon's Light on the Ancient Worlds by Perennial Books.
