Founded in 1930, the Aryan Path was a monthly English journal devoted to matters of spirituality, religion, philosophy, science, and psychology. Published by the Theosophy Company, Bombay, the journal had three key objectives: ‘To form a nucleus of universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste, or colour’; ‘The study of ancient and modern religions, philosophies and sciences, and a demonstration of the importance of such study’; and ‘The investigation of the unexplained laws of nature and psychical powers latent in man’. The journal used to accept gifts and donations.


The journal published essays, commentaries, correspondences, book reviews, and sayings. The key themes were spiritual freedom, Indian and western philosophy, Indian and western psychology, the Vedas and the Upanishads, Indian women, children, occult fiction, Christianity, Islam, God, and civilization. Published articles included: D.S. Sarma’s ‘The Gita and Spiritual Freedom’; A.R. Orage’s ‘Psychology: Indian and Western’; Paul Brunton’s ‘The Holy Men of Hindustan’; M.S. Modak’s ‘Spinoza and the Upanishads’; Bernard Bromage’s ‘Occult Fiction and Psychic Values’; C.E.M. Joad’s ‘Religion in the West’; Saroj Kumar Das’ ‘Religion at the Crossroads: Pseudo-mysticism versus Mysticism’; J.S. Collis’ ‘Science and Occultism: The Law of Cycles’; William Norman Brown’s ‘The West Must Learn about India’; J.B. Rhine’s ‘Psychical Research or Parapsychology during 1937’; and C. Delisle Burns’ ‘The Teaching of Gandhi’.


The ‘Correspondence’ section included letters from various parts of British India, Burma, Ceylon and Great Britain, on religious harmony, Vedantic studies, Ayurvedic medicine, Shakespearean studies, fascism, and so on. The section ‘Ends and Sayings’ carried excerpts, comments and sayings.
