A Search in Secret India

Postby Geoff » Thu Apr 12, 2012 4:58 am

By Dr. Paul Brunton. Published initially in 1935. Republished more recently.

Really good readable book. Its a pity I did not read this before I read "Autobiography of a Yogi" as I think that this writer has hit the nail on the head with his comment that Indian authors have a tendency to mix myth with fact. The last and certainly the most impressive Yogi he meets is reluctant to say much. But absolutely amazing in what he does say. In point of fact his message regarding meditation is 100% the same as what is the basis of Eckhart Tolle's bestselling book : "The Power of Now". The point is that if you become a "watcher" the ego is defeated, and the soul is in control of your life.

I recommend this absolutely to anyone planning to read any thing about Indian or Tibetan yogi. And yes, he sees things that no one can explain.

love,
Geoff

Hi Geoff, thanks for all the reviews.
What does "to become a watcher" mean? Is it like a practice of self observation?
Many thanks, Mary

Dear Mary,

Sorry I took so long to approve this. I got out the habit of looking. Sigh.

Yes its is self-observation.

love,
Geoff
