Start your review of The Secret Path Write a review Shelves: advaita , ramana-maharshi This is one of two books, to my knowledge, which Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi himself recommended as practical guides to Atma-Vichara. It is a small book, containing only essentials and doing without all superfluities. It is an excellent guide to Atma-Vichara as bhakti as compared to "Maha Yoga" by WHO, which approaches by way of jnana , full of the flowery prose appropriate to the devotional Way but without ever clouding the clear instructions. Feb 08, Phil Calandra rated it it was amazing This is clearly one of the best written books on mysticism which I have read. Paul Brunton was a follower of the great Guru Ramana Maharashi and had an experience of enlightenment while sitting with Ramana Maharashi. The author subsequently outlines a method of self realization through his method of self awareness, breathing and mental quiet.

He also reveals a Yoga breathing exercise safe enough to be practised without the supervision of a teacher and one which yields remarkable results.

It describes a system of mystic training for the West which is based on Yoga The book has a message for members of all religious denominations and is a splendid book to own, or to give to a friend.

If you are already a student of Yoga, its methods and practices, I can recommend this volume to you. It is truly an inspiring book.

The style is simple, straightforward and pleasing—technical and abstruse terms have been omitted. The book is informed with an exalted, albeit practical, wisdom that makes it one of the noblest attestations to Spiritual Truth this century has produced.

An absorbing book, the mere reading of which carries you away into unrealized regions of peace and contentment. The Secret Path The book is an achievement in that it has beautifully expressed what true spirituality is and has shown a practical path to the busy West. Brunton lays down a simple but effective system for the beginner for the ultimate unfolding of the inner self He tells it all in such a straightforward and easily assimilable fashion that The Secret Path might well be used as a textbook for this particular phase of schooling in mystic philosophy and practice.

Spiritual techniques are given and their efficacy inspiringly discussed. The practice of Yoga as outlined by Mr. Brunton, makes no demands on credulity. It offers itself as a purely pragmatic enterprise, an experiment which is certain to work if the requisite conditions are met.

The book discusses the nature of man and his soul without being overly religious or psychoanalytic. Paul Brunton provides a series of practical mental exercises and guidance, which are described in successive chapters.

What for? The answer is simply that the exercises are designed to help the reader to answer the most difficult question that a person can pose to himself—"Who am I? There are no answers from Paul, but he does give some interesting insights into how difficult it is to find the answer for yourself. If you have ever wondered what life is all about, if you are interested in who you really are or if you have ever asked what a "soul" is, then this book is probably in the right ball park for you.

Although the language is a little old fashioned I found the descriptive phraseology extremely satisfying to read. It added a great deal to my enjoyment of the book. All in all a book that I would heartily recommend to all fans of the books of Eckhart Tolle and for people looking for practical advice in this area of self improvement. He is a great writer Secret Path is a good read.

Paul Brunton and the Secret Path an appreciation by John Behague There have been many who have influenced me in my lifelong search for the truth, but none more so than Paul Brunton. I never met him, but I feel close to him; I visited the same places he visited, met the same kinds of people he met, and experienced similar things. His search was more successful than my own because he had the courage and determination to venture into the unknown, tear down curtains of superstition, topple idols, and scatter sacred cows. His courage may make him appear a giant among men.
