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.
Krishnamurti (1895-1986) went from his origins in a small south Indian village to become one of the great spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. He taught that the only way to peace on earth is the transformation of the human psyche--and that there is no path to this transformation, no method for achieving it, no gurus or spiritual authorities who can help. The transformation is a truth each of us must discover within ourselves.
This classic collection of brief excerpts from Krishnamurti's books and talks presents the essence of his teaching on meditation--a state of attention, beyond thought, which brings total freedom from authority and ambition, fears and separateness. Previously published in the Shambhala Classics series, this popular book of pithy excerpts on meditation is a worthy addition to the new Shambhala Pocket Library series.
