Understanding J. Krishnamurti

Wisdom, love, freedom, intelligence, austerity, innocence—these are words which are perfectly intelligible to a reader in a general context. Not so when they occur in the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti, for the teacher used them in a special sense, based on his own perception of life. The nuances in meaning often elude the reader and it is this problem that the book attempts to address. The book includes nearly three hundred passages, culled from original writings of the seer, broadly grouped into fifteen major themes. Explanatory notes follow the passages on the keywords. The book makes no claim to being a substitute for J.Krishnamurti’s writings. It facilitates a clearer understanding of his words.
