A marvellous book, taking us by the hand through an India which had all sorts of contradictions, but also the best and more excellent Human Beings expressing the Wisdom of Perenial Philosophy. The search for truth and for a suitable, credible Teacher takes Paul Brunton, a Western skeptic, to a journey of Self discovery in which he learns to distinguish betwwen simple fakirs and really Holy Men, culminating with his realisation that Ramana Maharishi is the One who deserves to be recognised as a Holy, Wise and transforming Guru - excatly because he respects his disciple's free will and discrimination. He often teaches through silence, but can also use sparce words in order to get to Brunton's Soul and leave an indelible mark of LOVE nad Faith in him. A wonderful, almost pictorial book. Absolutely a GOOD READ!
