It works for me but try a search on the title in quotes and go to the link that says it is a pdf from selfdefinition.org.
From the preface:
THIS BOOK explores an unrecognized but mighty taboo—our tacit
conspiracy to ignore who, or what, we really are. Briefly, the thesis is
that the prevalent sensation of oneself as a separate ego enclosed in a
bag of skin is a hallucination which accords neither with Western
science nor with the experimental philosophy-religions of the East—in
particular the central and germinal Vedanta philosophy of Hinduism.
This hallucination underlies the misuse of technology for the violent
subjugation of man's natural environment and, consequently, its
We are therefore in urgent need of a sense of our own existence
which is in accord with the physical facts and which overcomes our
feeling of alienation from the universe. For this purpose I have drawn
on the insights of Vedanta, stating them, however, in a completely
modern and Western style—so that this volume makes no attempt to be
a textbook on or introduction to Vedanta in the ordinary sense. It is
rather a cross-fertilization of Western science with an Eastern intuition.
