Description - A Hermit in the Himalayas by Paul Brunton
The late Paul Brunton was one of the twentieth century's greatest explorers of and writers on the spiritual traditions of the East. A Hermit in the Himalayas is a unique blend of travel narrative, a stream of consciousness account of a retreat high in the Himilayas, and quest for inner stillness and a glimpse of the divine. It also includes a fascinating insight into the society and religion of Tibet before the Chinese invasion, and an account of Yogi Pranavananda's pilgrimage to Ladakh, Tibet and Mount Kailas, sacred to both Buddhists and Hindus.
