Newly back in print: The Only Revolution is in many ways similar to some of Krishnamurti's earlier works and establishes him as one of the finest writers in the genre of religious and philosophical literature. The evocative descriptions of nature, the vividly etched sketches of those who come with their emotional or intellectual problems, and the way Krishnamurti, in the dialogues that follow, unravels step by step, the implications of various questions, are all found here. However, what is special about this book is that many of the chapters are prefaced by, or are interspersed with, brief but profound reflections on meditation. Also, we come across a wealth of characters and a range of existential questions posed by them: a rich successful lawyer who is a believer in Vedanta; a young lady who has lost in quick succession her husband as well as her child; a gunnery instructor 'whose livelihood forces him to teach others the art of killing' but is keen on finding God; a school teacher proud of his ancient race and tradition; a sannyasi swearing by isolation and a psychoanalyst quite tearful about her loneliness; a young man wanting to lead a religious life; an artist 'enclosed within the dream of his own gifts', a mathematician, a scientist, a film director...

Othmane's review

Lisez ce livre, cela vous fera du bien. L'auteur nous transporte avec lui sur un chemin spirituel pour nous émanciper des drogues qui rendent notre condition humaine pesante, à savoir les religions, l'accumulation de connaissances, les dogmes .. Le sage Jiddu Kirshnamurti nous propose une philosophie de vie selon laquelle vivre l'instant présent libéré de toute forme de conditionnement est la seule voie de salut .. mais c'est beaucoup plus que cela : c'est aussi une question de méditation( il y consacre des pages et des pages pour la décrire) , d'avoir une prise sur soi et sur le monde, de garder ses sens vifs pour contempler les merveilles de la nature ..

A part les réflexions de l'auteur que je trouve perçantes, on trouve aussi des descriptions de la nature et c'est très beau. Je l'ai lu en 2019, mais l'envie m'a pris aujourd'hui de relire quelques passages.

UM.

If you want to know what it's like to be spiritual perhaps you should read this. (?)

Some gorgeous language, but mostly concepts that did cartwheels all over my non-believing little mind. I'd be engrossed for pages and then snap out of it, think "HUH?" and have to start all over again. That sucks to admit.

So. Krishnamurti is a bright man, and this is for somebody. Many bodies, probably. Just not me. I'll try again when I grow up.

Enjoy.

این کتاب شامل مجموعه سخنرانی های جناب مورتی در هند، کالیفرنیا و اروپا بود. محوریت کتاب بر موضوع مراقبه و چیستی آن بود. به نظرم تکرار همان مطالب کتاب های دیگرش بود مثل رهایی از دانستگی و ... نکته ای که نمی توانم از نوشته هایش درک کنم بیان این مسئله است که مثلا وقتی به مراقبه فکر می کنین این دیگر مراقبه نیست و موضوعاتی از این قبیل...
