Jean KleinJean Klein: A Western Master

Be sure to watch the video clip of jean Klein at the bottem of this page.

Jean Klein, the teacher of Francis Lucille. A musicologist and doctor, he travelled to India where he was influenced by Sri Atmananda Krishna Menon, studied Kashmir Shaivism and was sent to the West to teach Advaita Vedanta.

Many know that Jean Klein is regarded as one most eloquent communicators to the West of non-duality in the second half of the 20th century. We are very pleased to be able to offer five previously out-of-print titles by Dr. Klein and a new compilation of the Journal 'Listening'. "The striking thing about Dr. Klein is his independence. He teaches Advaita but he rarely uses its technical terms. In fact, he has developed his own vocabulary which consists mainly of the special use of words like 'listening', 'transparency', and so on. Nor does he refer back to the tradition for any kind of confirmation. He occasionally gives a quotation from Gaudapada but nothing more. He does not mention other teachers (such as Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj, to name only two of the best known). His is not an approach which makes itself more persuasive by making connections of this kind."
