The Case of P. D. Ouspensky is the open hearted and personal portrayal of P. D. Ouspensky by his long time secretary Marie Seton. She was a Russian translator who attended Ouspensky’s lectures in Russia and became part of the circles in the late 1930′. She followed him to England and New York and became his trusted advisor to whom he often uttered his disbelief in the whole project and his role as a guru.
“I do not think that anyone was ever kinder to me, nor that anyone ever respected me as a person more than P. D. Ouspensky. What happened later never affected my regard for him as a human being. I do not think I was even disillusioned because of an acceptance that men, even saints, have feet of clay. I will always be grateful to Ouspensky for what I believe I learned from his system. But…well, my one experience with a guru who lost his way has made me sceptical of the wisdom of any man thinking himself fit to be a guru.”
