When Arthur Osborne founded The Mountain Path in 1964, he declared: “The aim of this journal is to set forth the traditional wisdom of all religions and all ages, especially as testified to by their saints and mystics, and to clarify the paths available to seekers in the conditions of our modern world.” And then he added: “The Mountain Path is dedicated to Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi.”This anthology of articles and poems that he contributed to the journal under his own name and various pseudonyms complements an earlier volume, For Those With Little Dust. Included is a longer work on the ‘question of Progress’ as well as 16 hitherto unpublished poems.Taken together, they form a powerful testament of the clarity and dedication he brought to bear upon his chosen task as a devotee of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Whether elucidating the subtleties of Bhagavan’s life and teachings, bridging the apparent diversity of religious practice and belief, or simply surrendering to the exquisite inspirations of his Muse, Arthur Osborne’s energetic writings from the last decade of his life continue to strike an inner-chord at the turn of the millennium.
