Summary/Abstract: This paper focuses on the launch of Mak Dizdar›s poetry in the context of the Perennial Philosophy (philosophia perennis) as interpreted by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić. The central idea of the Perennial Philosophy is that the Divine Truth is one, timeless and universal, while different religions are nothing more than different languages used to express the Unique Truth. In this context are interpreted some motives on stećci (medieval Bosnian tombstones) that are represented in the poetry of Mak Dizdar, such as universal symbols of the sun and moon, cross, grapevine and dance. Recent information on interconfesionallity of stećci, according to research by Dubravko Lovrenović, can be linked with the idea of Perennial Philosophy represented by Rusmir Mahmutćehajić, about the search for the Unity and Truth revealed both in the symbols on stećci and in the Mak Dizdar’s poetry
