Within the process of daily relations with people, with nature, and with society, our own causes of sorrow are revealed. 'In relationship the important thing to bear in mind is not the other but oneself,' states Krishnamurti, 'It is within oneself that harmony in relationship can be found, not in another, nor in environment.' (p. 160) This is not cause for isolation but the beginning of a process of self-revelation which creates the foundation for true relationship.
J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986) was a renowned spiritual teacher whose lectures and writings influenced millions throughout the 20th century, and his thoughts continue to resonate even a decade after his death. His works include On Mind and Thought, On Nature and the Environment, On Relationship, On Living and Dying, On Love and Loneliness, On Fear, and On Freedom.
Practical, profound and timeless, Krishnamurti's ideas rejecting the prejudices of traditional learning, celebrating personal, spiritual freedom, and the individual's search for Truth are inspiring now more than ever. Collected in this comprehensive volume are the most illuminating and essential of his writings and talks: words that are of vital relevance to today's spiritual environment, and catalytic in guiding us toward a deeper understanding of ourselves, our place in the universe, and the mysteries of the human condition.
