Paul Brunton lands in Bombay from where he begins his mystical experiences and travels south in search of a true yogi. His experiences which he jots down in very lucid English are a pleasure to read.
This year is the 80th anniversary of publication and I venture that someone will be reviewing this book eighty years hence.
Sri Ramana died in 1950 but his ashram at Arunachala near Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu is still going strong. Somerset Maugham was a visitor and based the character of Shri Ganesha in his novel 'The Razor's Edge' on Ramana.
If you just read that you will probably get the full import.
'Men make formal and pretentious enquiry into the mystery and meaning of life, when all the while each bird perched upon a green bough, each child holding its fond mother's hand, has solved the riddle and carries the answer it its face. That life which brought you to birth, O Man ! is nobler and greater than your farthest thought; believe in its beneficent intention towards you and obey its subtle injunctions whispered to your heart in half-felt intuitions'.
In case you are ever 'searching' for a guru, this book will offer a thoroughly refreshing perspective that goes beyond words.
