"First you must know your original self... The mind must know there is something beyond the mind," according to Klein, a musicologist and medical doctor, who has taught Vedanta for Westerners since 1960. He speaks of global living as encompassing the totality, a timeless state in which the mind is silent. Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but rather appears when the mind gives up completely. "You are taken to your wholeness," Klein says. 


Jean Klein (1912 – 1998), a musicologist and doctor, spent several years in India where he met his Guru and was initiated into traditional wisdom. He was eventually sent back to Europe to teach Advaita Vedanta.

Jean Klein is the author of many books including:
