John Levy was a mystic, teacher, and artist who died in 1976. An Englishman, Levy spent many years in India with his guru, Krishna Menon, and brought his knowledge of Advaita Vedanta to the west in an accessible form. In The Nature of Man According to the Vedanta, John Levy makes the classic argument against subject-object duality and concludes that the true Self cannot be known—as to know it would be to objectify it. Oddly enough, this is a liberating discovery; we see that our essence cannot be altered by anything we do or anything that happens to us. This consideration frees us to tackle anything—to jump into the stream of life and enjoy the experience—because there is an untouchable reality at the core of our existence. This book is one of the finest expressions of non-dualist philosophy. A must-have for those seeking deeper insight into the essential nature of the human being.

About the Author:

John Levy was a wealthy English mystic, teacher, musician, and artist who was an expert in Asian folk music. He had his own radio program about this subject on the BBC. At one point in his life Levy decided to give away his entire fortune and go to live for a time in India with only a loincloth. Levy spent many years there with his guru, Krishna Menon, assisting him with the English translations of his guru’s books Atma Darshan and Atma Niviriti.

He then brought his knowledge of Advaita Vedanta to the West in an accessible form through his teaching work and the publication of his two books. John Levy died in London in 1976.
