This new edition of the classic collection of brief excerpts from Krishnamurti\'s books and talks presents the essence of his teachings on meditation -- a state of attention, beyond thought, which brings total freedom from authority and ambition, fears and separateness.
The writings consist of material gleaned from talks, writings, and diary notes. They represent an astonishing outpouring which illustrates the deep meaning meditation had in the life of J. Krishnamurti.

Jiddu Krishnamurti lived from 1895 to 1986, and is regarded as one of the greatest philosophical and spiritual figures of the twentieth century. Krishnamurti claimed no allegiance to any caste, nationality or religion and was bound by no tradition. His purpose was to set humankind unconditionally free from the destructive limitations of conditioned mind. For nearly sixty years he traveled the world and spoke spontaneously to large audiences until the end of his life in 1986 at the age of ninety. He had no permanent home, but when not traveling, he often stayed in Ojai, California, Brockwood Park, England, and in Chennai, India. In his talks, he pointed out to people the need to transform themselves through self knowledge, by being aware of the subtleties of their thoughts and feelings in daily life, and how this movement can be observed through the mirror of relationship.
