Described by the Dalai Lama as one of the greatest thinkers of the age, Jiddu Krishnamurti has influenced millions throughout the 20th century, including Aldous Huxley, Bertrand Russell, Henry Miller and Joseph Campbell. Born of middle-class Brahmin parents in 1895, Krishnamurti was recognised at age fourteen by theosophists Annie Besant and C W Leadbetter as an anticipated world teacher and proclaimed to be the vehicle for the reincarnation of Christ in the West and of Buddha in the East. In 1929 he repudiated these claims and travelled the world, sharing his philosophical insights and establishing schools and foundations.

This book is a record of a unique event: when J. Krishnamurti sat down, in 1978 and 1979, to dialogue with a group of prominent Buddhists on topics related to human consciousness. This was an especially auspicious occasion, as many people have considered Buddhism to be closest in spirit to Krishnamurti's teaching among all the religions, and because the great teacher was famous for advising his students to seek truth away from religion or conventional spiritual authority. The discussion was made even more interesting in that among the pimary participants were Walpola Rahula, the renowned Sri Lankan Buddhist scholar and author of the classic introductory text WHAT THE BUDDHA TAUGHT and the physicist David Bohm. The wide ranging discussion centers on the following topics: - Is Krishnamurti simply restating what the Buddha already said? - Is there a state of mind without the self? - What is the relationship between freedom, love, and action? - What is truth? - Is there life after death? The book also includes a section of question-and-answer material pertinent to the discussion, gathered from talks given by Krishnamurti's in other times and places.

Widely recognized as one of the most influential spiritual teachers of the twentieth century, Jiddu Krishnamurti taught that in order for there to be peace in the world, we must each first make peace with ourselves. No spiritual path, leader, or personal or political philosophy will guide us in this endeavor, he said; this transformation of the human psyche is a truth that each of us must discover within. Here, Krishnamurti teaches that the war and destruction human beings wreak on each other and the environment are caused by our misplaced attachment to a sense of self and individuality that leads to aggression, competition, greed, and conflict. When we recognize that our consciousness is not individual but common to all humans, we can work together in a spirit of cooperation and compassion. Krishnamurti shows that taking personal responsibility for our actions and reactions—in our relationships and in our lives—is the necessary first step toward a global view

A must for any philosophical or theosophical collection. PARUL GUPTA
