 One of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century describes a series of his encounters around the world with a wide variety of spiritual seekers. Their questions and his answers explore the nature of the lived experience, the details of profound self-inquiry and how to live a fulfilled life.


These 60 chapters, with titles like "Solitude Means Freedom", "All Seeking is from Emptiness and Fear", and "Life is an Extraordinarily Beautiful Movement", carry the essence of Krishnamurti's teaching style and profoundest wisdom.

Each one reflects an encounter K had at different times during the sixties and seventies. It opens with a poetic account of the location where the encounter took place, plus occasionally a description of the seeker that K has met. The chapter then moves back and forth between the seeker and the teacher, giving the reader plenty to reflect upon.

This is previously unpublished material. Readers will be captivated by the luminous prose and the piercing insight. The style is enigmatic and poetical but each chapter contains more than enough for the reader to consider, perhaps as a daily practice. The writings have the quality of fables, but the teaching is far more profound and challenging.

Can the mind be quiet?

I guess from time to time, the mind needs to be quiet and longs for some time in peace and rest. To get all the thoughts out of your mind, that are concerned about the past or the predictable future. Those thoughts are running through your heads all the time. Therefore the mind is always in action, without cleaning up. This is very important to clear up your thoughts and try to have times where you have nothing in your whole, the unknown. Nothing. Kind of a base to create new thoughts afterwards. And also to show yourself that you are able to cut off the thoughts and from time to time think nothing at all. This seems to be important to break patterns and habits.
