In his first book Paul Brunton (born Raphael Hurst; 1898-1981) goes on a quest for wisdom and truth in India and records how Sri Shankara the 66th predicts the coming of the new Teacher (p.127). Also, the avatar Sri Ramana Maharshi (see the books by Arthur Osborne under Avatars) is first introduced to a Western audience in chapter XVI, 'In A Jungle Hermitage.'

Paul Brunton is the author of a host of other books, among which: The Secret Path (1935), A Search in Secret Egypt (1936), A Message from Arunachala (1936), A Hermit in the Himalayas (1936), The Quest of the Overself (1937), and Wisdom of the Overself (1943).
