'He found many marvelous things...But now and then a man of real spirituality set his feet on the way that finally led him to what he had looked and hoped for.' New York Times Book Review
The late Paul Brunton was one of the twentieth century's greatest explorers of and writers on the spiritual traditions of the East. A Search in Secret India is the story of Paul Brunton's journey around India, living among yogis, mystics and gurus, some of whom he found convincing, others not. He finally finds the peace and tranquility which come with self-knowledge when he meets and studies with the great sage Sri Ramana Maharishi.
“Fascinating reading, both from a historical point of view, but also because of the spiritual insights they contain”
“His work is excellent. It has life, colour, movement”
“[I'm] impressed by Mr. Brunton's pains to seek out truth and the obvious honesty of his record”
