Chosen by Parabola magazine as ‘one of the hundred best spiritual books of the century’. An excellent introduction to Krishnamurti’s teachings for the young and the old. Consisting of Krishnamurti’s talks and discussions with students, teachers, and parents in India, it has been translated into the major languages of the world. Here Krishnamurti states, in unmistakeable terms, that the function of education is not different from the purpose of human life itself:
‘The function of education is to bring about a release of energy in the pursuit of goodness, truth, or God, which in turn makes the individual a true human being and therefore the right kind of citizen… As a river creates the banks which hold it, so the energy which seeks truth creates its own discipline without any form of imposition, and as the river finds the sea, so that energy finds its own freedom.’
The book comes with a free DVD of Krishnamurti's talk in Saanen in 1983: "Is it possible to live in peace?"
This book-cum-DVD package is being launched in South India through all the major bookshops. Price Rs 295
