Description

J Krishnamurti’s literary legacy in the form of talks, discussions, and writings is remarkable for its sheer variety and vastness. In 1980, Krishnamurti wrote, on request, a one-page summary of his work, which he himself referred to as the core of his teachings. The present compilation starts with this summary and follows it with a selection of passages of an amplifying kind. The editor takes the major aspects of Krishnamurti’s teachings and puts together extensive passages to expand on such themes as:

Truth is a pathless land;

Man has built in himself images as a fence of security;

Freedom is found in the choiceless awareness of our daily existence and activity;

Thought is time; and

Time is the psychological enemy of man.

The book also alerts the reader to Krishnamurti’s innovative use of language, the ways in which he uses old worlds with new interpretations.
