If your authority touches lives or influences minds -- or if you are close to someone whose does -- this book is a great gift. It is full of accessible, handy, and inspiring wisdom for parents; teachers; business executives; political administrators; leaders of organisations of all types and sizes; doctors, lawyers, religious leaders and counsellors, military leaders, police administrators and anyone else who wants (or needs) to keep in mind the ultimate happiness of everyone affected by his or her decisions.
Paul Brunton helps us hear the melody behind the medley of today's "spiritual marketplace." His late writings raise the bar for what we can expect of spiritual teachings and teachers, and what we can do for ourselves. Born in London in 1898, he soon became a leading pioneer of much of what we now take for granted. He traveled widely throughout the world (long before it was fashionable) to meet living masters of various traditions with whom he then lived and studied. His eleven early books from 1934-1952 shared much of what he learned, and helped set the stage for dramatic east-west exchanges of the late 20th century.
