Paul Brunton

Paul Brunton’s story is the perfect example of the radical transformation that spirituality underwent in the 20th century. At the beginning of that century, when PB was but two years old, spirituality—even in far-off India—was exclusively the domain of nationalistic, myopic religions, rarely willing to entertain dialogue with other faiths, much less attend to the spiritual lives of women and other second class citizens. Since then we’ve seen a huge awakening in the West, first to Hinduism, then Buddhism, and most recently to Tibetan Buddhism. At the same time there has been a commensurate adaption of Western technology to the cultures of the East.

Nowadays, truly ecumenical conferences abound, while eclectic and independent spiritual teachers, guides, gurus, and coaches are no further away than our phone books. Even while the West was first looking to the East for mysticism, it began to discover that even its own primary religion—science—was unstable, intangible, and deeply interlocked with the consciousness of the observer. And of course in these lattermost years, the Internet has created an entirely new level of interchange, information access, and inspiration.

Peter Berking

Peter Berking lives in Vienna, VIrginia, USA. He is a learning technology consultant. He was captivated by a picture of Ramana in 1974, but didn't become a serious devotee until 1986, after starting to read Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi. In 2002, he made his way to Sri Ramanasramam, and has been going there every year for as much time as he can spare. He is an ardent practitioner of Giripradakshina, especially on the Inner Path, and has written another book with Muktha Manu called A Guide to Giripradakshina. Another central part of his practice is daily singing of Ramana's devotional hymns to Arunachala, the Stuti Panchakam.

Philip Renard

Philip Renard was born 1944 in Amsterdam. After a period of studying the original teachings of Chan Buddhism, he started practising his spiritual life in Subud (a Java based brotherhood), in which the surrender practice called latihan gave him a foundation for all further insight, that is: freedom from concept or method. After an intensive period of fruitful influence from the American teacher Da Free John (later called Adi Da), Philip was for some years closely associated with Dutch Advaita teacher Alexander Smit (a pupil of NisargadattaMaharaj and indirectly of Atmananda). During this period Philip came to a point when belief in all concepts was shed, so he could apperceive who he always already is. In the following years he also (gratefully) made use of Dzogchen teachings, especially those of TulkuUrgyen. Philip has published six books and more than twenty articles in Dutch. In English he has published articles in Mountain Path and Journal of Indian Philosophy.

Prof G V Subbaramayya

Prof G V Subbaramayya - Is it stated in any book that for ultimate and final Self--Realisation one must ultimately come to the "Heart" even after reaching Sahasrara, and that the "Heart" is at the right side ? SRI BHAGAVAN : No. I have not come across this in any book. But, in a Malayalam book on medicines, I came across a stanza locating the "Heart" on the right side and I have translated it into Tamil in the " Supplement to the Forty Verses ".We know nothing about the other centres. We cannot be sure what we arrive at in concentating on them and realising them. But, as the "I" arises from the "Heart", it must sink back and merge there for Self--Realisation.
