"Thomas Tryon's most influential work, inspired by Pythagoreanism and Hinduism as well as Jacob Bohme and Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa, advocates vegetarianism and a healthy diet by careful selection of food and drink as a way to live a long and happy life. He promotes animal welfare, ecology and pacifism and a belief that there was one original true religion of mankind."
