This new, expanded edition brings forward the importance of joy and love and grace in Short Path practice, plus offers additional meditations and teachings to help practitioners realize their goals."Paul Brunton gives voice to the profound teachings of immediate spiritual awakening that have the power to short circuit the seeker in us and reveal the true nature of reality here and now. The true gift of this wonderful book is in how nuanced and subtle Paul Brunton understood these profound and transformational teachings and how directly he conveys them. Read this book as you would a scripture or a sutra and let it open your eyes to eternity." -Adyashanti"The Short Path to Enlightenment is a deeply supportive text from the extraordinary Paul Brunton, the spiritual explorer who first brought knowledge of Ramana Maharishi to the West. In this work, readers receive the invitation and instruction to discover the truth of oneself. This book is alive with supreme knowledge. May it support you in immediately and continually recognizing yourself." -GangajiThese accessible teachings distill the essence of currently popular and traditional sudden-awakening teachings (Advaita, Zen, Dzogchen, etc.). Paul Brunton calls them "Short Path" teachings. A simple recognition, a brief moment of grace, can make what seemed like a far-off spiritual goal actual here and now. But we need reliable pointers for when and how and where to look. Brunton delivers the essence and practices of this path in direct, jargon-free language.Includes: * How to move from the Long Path of spiritual disciplines to the Short Path of direct insight* Short Path exercises* Experiences along the way* Warnings* Stages of realization* Stabilizing the awakening* The nature of lasting enlightenment/the Sage"The Short Path to Enlightenment was my introduction to this great sage. The passages are so profound that I often lose track of time, just sitting with one of them. Cannot recommend PB's books and practices enough. The website is marvelous as well. Thank you."- Kavitha Chinnaiyan, author.

About the Author

Widely considered the most influential writer on self-realization in the 20th century, Paul Brunton traveled the globe in search of authentic spiritual teachers, with whom he lived and studied. Major reviewers acclaim his integrative writings as "sensible and compelling," "a rich vein of wisdom," "deep and original," etc., that "stand beside Merton, Huxley, Suzuki, Watts, and Radhakrishnan." He presents and makes accessible a broad spectrum of deep teachings, both East and West. Compilers Mark Scorelle and Jeff Cox are both longtime students of Brunton's work and are immersed in contemporary nondual teachings. Jeff recently retired as president of Snow Lion Publications, publishers of numerous works by the Dalai Lama and other revered Buddhist teachers. Both are available for promotional activities.
