Description

What you are is much more important than what you should be. You can understand what is, but you cannot understand what should be.

The essential message of J Krishnamurti, revered philosopher and spiritual teacher, challenges the limits of ordinary thought. In talks to audiences worldwide he pointed out to listeners the tangled net of ideas, organizational beliefs and psychological mind-sets in which humanity is caught, and that truth—the understanding of what is—not effort, is the key factor of human liberation.

Commentaries on Living, a three-volume series, records Krishnamurti’s meetings with individual seekers of truth from all walks of life. In these dialogues, he reveals the thought-centred roots of human sorrow and comments on the struggles and issues common to those who strive to break the boundaries of personality and self-limitation. In over fifty essays in each volume, Krishnamurti explores topics as diverse as:

Knowledge
Truth
Fulfillment
Meditation
Love
Effort
Seeking
Life and Death
Education

The series invites readers to take a voyage on an unchartered sea with Krishnamurti in his exploration of the conditioning of the mind and its freedom.
