Print book: EnglishView all editions and formats Summary: E. B. White once said, only places that are a bit decadent are pleasant to live in. Charm, especially Philadelphia charm, wouldn't be the same without the tinge of decadence found in the lives of Philadelphia's upper class.

Nathaniel Burt was a keen observer of the hereditary aristocracy and its role in society. In his book The Perennial Philadelphians, Burt noted that the city's "upper class proposes to keep right on going whether anyone believes in or approves of its existence or not.". The first edition of The Perennial Way included Yoga Sutras, Dhammapada, Ashtavakra Gita, Tao Te Ching, Heart Sutra, and Faith Mind Sutra, which and are considered by many to be the essential statements of Yoga, Buddhism, Advaita, Taoism, and Zen.
