In these Talks, given in Europe, Ojai, and India, Krishnamurti addresses the need to approach our life problems in a manner that does not perpetuate fragmentation. "Though we have many problems, and each problem seems to produce so many other problems, perhaps we can consider together whether the wisest thing to do is, not to seek the solution of any problem at all. It seems to me that our minds are incapable of dealing with life as a whole; we deal, apparently, with all problems fragmentarily, separately, not with an integrated outlook. Perhaps the first thing, if we have problems, is not to seek an immediate solution for them, but to have the patience to inquire deeply into them, and discover whether these problems can ever be solved by the exercise of will. What is important, I think, is to find out, not how to solve the problem, but how to approach it."
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.
