In the second video clip, Jean-Louis Michon continues reminiscing about Martin Lings. Lings was the “secretary” of the seminal Traditionalist, René Guénon, for a number of years before Guénon’s death. Guénon’s writings were a beacon to many Westerners (and Easterners) who were searching for authentic spiritual knowledge in the midst of a materialist and sentimentalist influence that had affected even the religious domain in the West.
Thus, many sought him out through correspondence and even by showing up at his doorstep. Guénon was a private man, focused on his writing, prayer, and his family. Michon tells us that Lings was very effective in following Guénon’s instructions to maintain his privacy.
