Commentaries on Living

by J Krishnamurti

Excerpt

‘What you are is much more important than what you should be. You can understand what is , but you cannot understand what should be.’ The essential message of J. Krishnamurti, revered philosopher and spiritual teacher, challenges the limits of ordinary thought. In talks to audiences worldwide he pointed out to listeners the tangled net of ideas, organizational beliefs and psychological mind-sets in which humanity is caught, and that truth—the understanding of what is—not effort, is the key factor of human liberation. Commentaries on Living, a three-volume series, records Krishnamurti’s meetings with individual seekers of truth from all walks of life.
