The Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation Book Gift Project sends books to public libraries, to spiritual study centers worldwide, specialized libraries and other groups with an interest in philosophic matters who agree to keep the books in active circulation.

PB’s philosophic writings are so universal in their language and teachings that they provide words of wisdom to spiritual seekers regardless of their belief system. They are meaningful to the Buddhist, Hindu, Christian and the Theosophist as well as others. It is our plan to contact specialized libraries with a quote relevant to their course of study and offer a free book they might want to place on their shelves.

If you are interested in furthering the work of the Foundation, we are very grateful for your support. Because the PBPF consists of working volunteers, 100% of your donation supports Foundation projects.


We also want to make a book selection available to our friends to take as a gift from PBPF to any spiritual or philosophic center they are visiting that has a library. Our intent is to make PB’s wisdom widely available to serious students everywhere seeking the spiritual life.

You may choose to make a tax-deductible donation, to any library of your choice, all or any of our publications currently in print. See the list below and go to our Store for prices.)  Or we will send them to a location we already have on our waiting list. We send only to libraries that confirm in advance that they want the books and will display them publicly.
