Zen et Vedanta
Commentaire du Sin-sin-ming
Traduction du Sin-sin-ming de
Seng-Ts'an par L. Wang et Jacques Masui
Dans ce commentaire, Arnaud Desjardins, formé en Inde dans la filiation des Upanishads, tente de montrer comment, au-delà des querelles philosophiques sur l'atmâ, le Soi, ou l'anatmâ, le non-soi, l'enseignement du Vedanta est proche de celui du Zen. L'un et l'autre nous appellent à une expérience directe, une réalisation libératrice des instances de la personnalité de chacun. L'enjeu de ce livre, c'est la possiblité pour chaque lecteur d'une vérification individuelle.

Zen et Vedenta
Arnaud Desjardins (1925-2011), began his career as filmmaker for French television. His highly acclaimed documentaries led him to Japan and India where he recorded the lives and teachings of great men and women sages.
In 1965, Desjardins met Swâmi Prajnânpad whom he accepted as his teacher. He worked with him until his death in 1974. Since then, Arnaud Desjardins has been serving as a guide and teacher for thousands of men and women from all walks of life, in both France and other European countries. He is a highly respected figure, regarded as a sage by a large public as well as by Eastern masters and spiritual authorities such as the Dalai Lama.
Desjardins is the author of dozens of books, all dealing with a simple, straightforward approach to life. Drawing heavily from his own personal experience and years of study in both Eastern and Western spiritual and religious traditions, Desjardins presents a synthesis which is soundly based in psychology, but goes way beyond the limitations of that discipline to include the pristine essence of the human spirit.
