Up ]


Paul BruntonPaul Brunton was born in London on 27th November 1898. During his successful career as a journalist, he developed a keen interest in comparative religion, mysticism and philosophy. He travelled extensively in the Orient, lived among Yogis, mystics and sadhus or holy men, among whom Ramana Maharshi, whose chela he became. He was one of the very few students of the East who had the ability to illuminate his understanding for the reader. In fact, he was one of those very few who introduced Yoga to the West.

Brunton passed the twenty last years of his life in Switzerland. He liked the mountains and the mild climate. People from all over the world visited or wrote him. In fact, many of them owe him a lot. PB, as he was called by his friends, was a kind soul with a beaming smile on his face. He discouraged those who tried to "organize a group" around him. "You've got to find the real PB within your own self," he used to tell them.

He wrote eleven books. I have listed them down here in chronological order. After his death in 1981 "The Notebooks of Paul Brunton" were published by The Paul Brunton Philosophic Foundation. These Notebooks contain sixteen volumes, the last of which was published in 1989.
