British occultist and writer. Well educated in Paris, he became interested in the occult when his health broke down in 1894. Brookes studied for the next decade, and, in 1904, became a nomad in India, roaming southern India in Yoga garb and lecturing on the Bhagavad-Gita in small towns. He published several books.
