The Foundation is headquartered in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, where the original writings and photographs of Paul Brunton are housed.
Not only is the area known for the beautiful lakes and wineries of growing fame, but the area has a long history of attracting serious researchers into the esoteric and spiritual mysteries. His Holiness Shankaracharya, the spiritual head of South India, sent his personal secretary T.M.P. Mahadevan to Cornell University in nearby Ithaca to teach Indian philosophy, during which time he also established a large collection of Hindu Philosophy books at Olin Library. The Goldwyn Smith library at Cornell University has one of the largest collections of alchemy, including the original papers of Robert Fludd. Goldwyn Smith and Ezra Cornell were acquainted with H.P. Blavatsky who also stayed in the area in 1875. In the mid-1960s PB’s student Anthony Damiani moved to this region and soon after founded Wisdom’s Goldenrod, where PB visited and met with Anthony’s students—many of whom ended up working on his posthumous publications years later.
The inspiring legacies and the stunning landscape make the area a happy home for the Foundation.
