Formats & editions


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.

About the Author

J. Krishnamurti

Krishnamurti was born in 1895 in India. He is regarded globally as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers in recent times. He explained with great precision the subtle workings of the human mind, and pointed to the need for bringing to our daily life a deeply meditative and spiritual quality. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society. He died in 1986.
