Jean Klein (1912 – 1998) was a French author and spiritual teacher of Advaita Vedanta (Nondualism). The core message of Advaita Vedanta teachings is that our « ego » identity is a social fiction. Our true nature is Primal Awareness, a kind of Field of Consciousness which is within all beings and pervades the entire Universe.
This is an excerpt from the book « I Am » (p.7), from a longer reading of Jean’s words by Samaneri Jayasāra (below), creator of the Wisdom of the Masters youtube channel.
