Book Details

Description

In A Search in Secret Egypt, Paul Brunton recounts his experiences of the mysteries and magic of Egypt in the 1930s. He explores Egypt's mysticism, temples, and gods for their spiritual significance — including an illuminating and eerie night alone inside the Great Pyramid. He plumbs the furthest reaches of which his mind and body are capable, to distinguish various forms of yoga and magic. He discovers how these differ from the spirituality dramatically presented in profound initiation rites performed for qualified aspirants in ancient Egypt's sacred temples.

Along the way, P.B. meets a fascinating variety of occultists, fakirs, dervishes, and an adept, and even manages to be initiated into the deadly art of snake charming. His frank interviews with Muslim leaders are relevant today, and his description of the Hajj reflects the beauty and inspiring faith of Muhammad's true followers.

Toward the end of the book, P.B. reflects on his own spiritual path, connecting all of his experiences in the discovery that we are more than the body and that the freedom of our spirit can be experienced here and now.

About Paul Brunton

Paul Brunton helps us hear the melody behind the medley of today's "spiritual marketplace." His late writings raise the bar for what we can expect of spiritual teachings and teachers, and what we can do for ourselves. Born in London in 1898, he soon became a leading pioneer of much of what we now take for granted. He traveled widely throughout the world (long before it was fashionable) to meet living masters of various traditions with whom he then lived and studied. His eleven early books from 1934–1952 shared much of what he learned, and helped set the stage for dramatic east-west exchanges of the late 20th century. Paul Brunton left more than 10,000 pages of enormously helpful new work in notebooks he reserved for posthumous publication, much of which is now available as The Notebooks of Paul Brunton.
