The Book of Listening

Jean Klein
Authors:
Jean Klein

This book is a compilation of Volumes 1 - 10 of Jean Klein´s journal Listening, published by the Jean Klein Foundation on a limited basis between 1989-1995.Each volume of The Book of Listening is arranged around a theme, for example, Love and Marriage, The Guru and Disciple, and includes a previously unpublished private discussion or a transcription of a public talk with Jean Klein. Listening also includes one question answered in depth (Your Question) and a brief description of Jean's unique approach to the role of the body in his teaching. For each volume Jean selected an extract from his own favorite literature and poetry, covering many ages and cultures, which complemented the depth and richness of his own expression.Most of Jean Klein's teaching was simply through his presence and through the question and answer dialogues where he "answered the questioner, not the question." Jean emphasized the direct approach to liberation, an approach free from emphasis on the attainment of progressively subtle psycho-somatic states.The Book of Listening reproduces each original volume in full and, as well as offering an exposition of the direct path, captures the multi-cultural interests and tastes of this remarkable and pioneering exponent of Advaita in the West.

Be Who You Are

Authors:
Jean Klein

Be Who You Are is one of the earliest published books of dialogues with Jean Klein. Written in the lucid and eloquent style which characterizes his work, each chapter is composed of an introductory discourse followed by questions and answers."The 'eternal present', our theme in these meetings, lies within the depth of ourselves. It is the eternal awareness of the Self. Seen from the Ultimate, the world projected by the mind appears and disappears, in other words, it "becomes". When we talk of time and space, it must be thoroughly understood that their reality is relative, it is a reality in the world of becoming. But beyond space-time is that stillness which knows no becoming."This much sought after book, by one of the most important exponents of Advaita in recent years, is now available again from Non-Duality Press.

Beyond Knowledge

Authors:

"We have come to satisfy the inner need to know ourselves, to share our oneness, to hear directly what life is. To receive life one must be open to it. Life can only be understood by life. This means that the being open is life itself. During these meetings, be open to the openness, allow yourself to be deeply impregnated by the sayings that come directly from life. To be impregnated, the mind must be free from wrong knowing, that is, free from imposing an independent existence on all that is objective. Nothing that can be known has existence in itself. It depends on a knower. The knower is consciousness. Only consciousness never changes. We must find out what never changes in us." Beyond Knowledge is a crystallization in word-form of this timeless wisdom.To read these dialogues is to enter into a scale of inquiry and clarity that knows no compromise. It carries one through to the end of thought and to the beginning of self-knowledge.
