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,

and/or meditated.

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.
