A new, definitive edition!
This joyously inspiring revelatory work explores the
sacred foundation from which our individualities and
world(s) emerge. Paul Brunton here presents a grand
vision for every human being's possible development
by exploring Mind as the source of all consciousness
and all experience —and the continuity of our minds
and bodies with that vast Intelligence. He described it
as a fresh modern re-creation/synthesis of teachings
from sages throughout Asia with whom met, studied,
Main themes include:
- how to move from ego-centered life to the transcendent reality;
- the interplay of karma, free will, and grace;
- the nature of evil and suffering;
- how to awaken intuition and penetrative insight;
- the passage through death to rebirth;
- psychic experiences and mystic visions
Seven "ultramystic exercises" for opening the door to
higher consciousness include a healing meditation on
the sun; practices for transforming the future, dream,
and sleep; and a meditation on the timeless self.
This new edition—now provided as a companion volume
with The Hidden Teaching Beyond Yoga, as Paul Brunton
originally intended—has been updated to incorporate his
final revisions. It includes a new foreword and supplemen-
tary material selected from the author’s archives by the
Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation.
About Paul Brunton
Paul Brunton is widely considered the 20th century's
most influential writer on systems of self-realization.
He traveled the globe in search of authentic spiritual
teachers, with whom he lived, meditated, and studied.
He is perhaps best known for introducing Ramana
Maharshi to the West, and to much of India.
Major reviewers acclaim Brunton's integrative writings
as “sensible and compelling,” “a rich vein of wisdom,”
“sensible, deep, and original,” etc., that “stand beside
Merton,Huxley, Suzuki, Watts, and Radhakrishnan.”
He lucidly presents and makes accessible a broad
spectrum of deep teachings, both East and West.
