The passages in this Study Book have been taken directly from Krishnamurti's talks and books from 1933 through 1967. The compilers began by reading all the passages from this period which contained the phrase choiceless awareness—the theme of this book. Over 600 passages were studied in all, and the aspects of choiceless awareness most frequently addressed by Krishnamurti were noted.
These aspects then formed the outline for the contents of this book. Krishnamurti spoke from such a large perspective that his entire vision was implied in any extended passage. If one wishes to see how a statement flows out of his whole discourse, one can find the full context from the references at the foot of each passage.
A complete bibliography is included at the end of the book.
