It’s a real pleasure to include this title amongst this season’s Classics because I feel it’s been a bit neglected in recent years. Paul Brunton was amongst the first westerners to follow the spiritual path to India, and his account of his journey in 1930-31 forms an invaluable portrait of some of the greats of Indian thought, including Meher Baba. His meeting with Ramana Maharshi at his ashram effectively introduced this great teacher to the west. While sitting with him, Brunton himself had a profound moment of non-dual consciousness, which he recounts movingly.
