5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring., 14 Dec. 2005
This review is from: A Hermit In The Himalayas: The Journey of a Lonely Exile: A Unique Travelogue by One of the Greatest Spiritual Explorers of the Twentieth Century (Paperback)
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Paul Brunton's book A search in secret India, I have researched and eagerly read other books written by the same author. A Hermit in the Himalayas is a real treasure. The descriptions of nature are truly stunning & so visually rich that whilst reading, one can easily picture the described landscapes. His style of writing, whilst from another era, is accessible, intelligent & extremely stimulating. I particularly love his shared moments of insight & meditation. He was an interesting man and his books are , in my opinion, wonderful. His discourse on Charlie Chaplin, although not from our time, is timeless truth, as are all his observations. He was certainly a man who had the courage to share his inner self & the ability to do so coherently. I recommend this book to anyone searching their own sacred paths & to those interested in reading about the great seekers of enlightenment in our time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little book with a big heart, 11 Mar. 2010
This review is from: A Hermit In The Himalayas: The Journey of a Lonely Exile: A Unique Travelogue by One of the Greatest Spiritual Explorers of the Twentieth Century (Paperback)
A truly absorbing, beautiful little book that takes you into the very heart of the tranquility of the Himalayas at a time before the conquest of Everest.

This is Paul Brunton's journel of his time in search of stillness; the inner silence of a higher state meditation. It is a book full of insight and wisdom as he pens his daily musings on life and Nature with beautiful, vivid descriptions of a time spent surrounded by breathtaking beauty.
He is a philospher talking of many things, travel, politics, religion, a chapter in which he replies to his correspondence and, in answer to a man on the brink of suicide, a letter so uplifting and full of compassion that it touched my heart. Another on silent movies and Charlie Chaplin, that lovable funny character of the silent era.

I loved this little book, only 192 pages - but it has a very big heart!
