Mouni Sadhu was an occultist, a spiritual teacher and author, who lived in the 20th century. He studied and practiced occultism for many years, but after reading Paul Brunton’s book, “A search in Secret India”, his focus in life changed.
In his book, Paul Brunton described his meeting with the Indian sage Sri Ramana Maharshi. After reading the book, Mouni Sadhu developed a strong interest in the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, which aimed at self-realization.
