When Superman actor Christopher Reeve was asked in a BBC interview which book he would want if stranded on a desert island, he replied, “The Inner Reality by the philosopher Paul Brunton.”

A provocative and compelling work, The Inner Reality is an essential guide for spiritual seekers. This remarkable book interweaves the teachings of two great religious figures: Jesus and Krishna. Identifying a common current running through both Christianity and Hinduism, Paul Brunton describes how an “inner reality” or “kingdom of heaven” can be found within each of us. Defining religion as simply the practice of binding oneself with divinity, he encourages readers to embark on the quest for self-knowledge and spiritual communion through a commitment to the contemplative path and practices explained in this book.

With his profound interpretations of the wold’s sacred texts, from the Gospel of St. John to the Bhagavad Gita, Brunton bridges East and West to guide the reader into the living heart of these ancient traditions.

This new edition has been updated to incorporate the author’s final revisions and includes a foreword by the Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation. You can read a short excerpt from the chapter “What Is God?” on the publisher’s website.

“Paul Brunton was surely one of the finest mystical flowers to grow on the wasteland of our secular civilization. What he has to say important to us all.”–Georg Feuerstein, author
