A classic collection of excerpts from one of the great spiritual leaders of the twentieth century--now in the newly designed Shambhala Pocket Library series.
J. KRISHNAMURTI (1895-1986) is regarded as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers of the twentieth century. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern us in our everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption, of the individual's search for security and happiness, and the need for mankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt, and sorrow. He explained with great precision the subtle workings of the mind, and pointed to the need for bringing to our daily lives a deeply meditative and spiritual quality.
"Few modern thinkers have integrated psychology, philosophy, and religion so seamlessly as Krishnamurti."-- Publishers Weekly
