Dr Paul Brunton's books are bestsellers in more than a dozen languages; this one, in English alone, has already been reprinted nineteen times in its hard-cover edition.
Born in London in 18987, he was educated at St. George's college and Mc. Kinely - - Roosvelt College, USA, where he was awarded a doctorate in philosophy. Early in life he became interested in the arts, literature, comparative religion, mysticism and philosophy. He traveled extensively in the orient, investigating the ideas and practices of Yogis, mystics and holy men, and lived among them in their monasteries, retracts and hermitages.
Indeed, very few people have ever provided themselves with the same magnificent opportunities for establishing intimate contact with the Yogis and Fakirs of India, and then been able to give such a vivid account of their teachings and astonishing feats.
