Previously published as Krishnamurti in India 1970-71 and out-of-print for a long time. Consists of the talks Krishnamurti gave in New Delhi, Madras, Bangalore, and Bombay between Dec 1970 and Feb 1971. The title is summing up many of the statements that form the common theme of this series of fourteen talks. For those who have gone seriously into Krishnamurti's teachings, this book offers strikingly new perspectives on man's ancient quest for self-knowledge.
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.
