Human history, it seems, has never before witnessed a crisis of the complexity, magnitude, and catastrophic sweep that is being experienced today by mankind and the planet we live on. Its impact is visible in every sphere of our life and is marked by an erosion of values, the collapse of faiths, traditions and ideologies, the breakdown of relationships, and the savage destruction of the earth.
Despite the achievements of our age—the information revolution, the rapid growth of scienti?c knowledge with its technological skills, and so on-no one can deny that solutions to even the most basic problems such as hunger and insecurity, war, exploitation, and injustice remain remote. What is more, the rapid networking of the world’s societies has ensured that the crisis is brought to every doorstep—yours and mine—without choice, without option.
Nearly a century ago, Krishnamurti saw all this coming. Witness to the dramatic events of the 20th century and endowed with a capacity for acute observation and profound insight
he gave the most brilliant expression to the causes that brought on, and continue to fuel, the global crisis.
Krishnamurti’s insights into the nature of the crisis form the contents of a photo exhibition titled J. Krishnamurti and a World in Crisis, and the quotations used in the exhibition are presented
here in this booklet.
