Who was Paul Brunton?


Paul Brunton’s remarkable life was in service to wisdom.  He was born in the cultural center of London, and his introspective and mystical sensitivity soon led him East, first to India and Egypt, and then around the world to explore spiritual traditions and meet with teachers.  Blending his own inner inquiry with ancient and contemporary teachings, PB, as he liked to be called, developed a philosophy and path of practice that suits life in the 21st century, one that expresses the greatest wisdom and love available to humankind—the Wisdom of the Pure Mind and the Love of our own Higher Self.

A lifetime of both inner and outer research enabled Paul Brunton to bring the sacred teachings of the East to the West and make them understandable to the heart and mind. His writings provide spiritual seekers, whether affiliated with a particular path or not, a guide full of wisdom, beauty, and grace that will carry them forward in their quest to realize that greatest of all treasures, their own Higher Self, Soul, or Overself.
