About Paul Brunton’s Philosophy

Paul Brunton (1898-1981) was a pioneer in developing a living philosophy of spiritual wisdom that provides a complete world view. A leading author and researcher, he became known worldwide as an authority on Eastern spirituality, mysticism, and philosophy.

Paul Brunton was dedicated to presenting the essence of spiritual development to all students of every faith and every social standing in language suited for the modern world. His philosophic writings are primarily meant to augment and deepen the practices of individuals who are committed to an independent spiritual pursuit and who have a reverence for the wide variety of teachings available in the world today. These teachings—as encapsulated in his 28 categories—begin with introduction to spiritual life, the re-education of the ego, and the attention to health; they conclude with a careful unfoldment of advanced meditation techniques and the philosophy behind their success.
