How does one live sanely in this world of violence and corruption? Is it possible for man to find everlasting security? How does one deal with one's anger, frustration, sexual desire, loneliness, and fear? Is a human being a mere thinking machine or is there something beyond thought? What is true meditation? What is the place of religion in the modern world? Krishnamurti's 'answers' are not readymade solutions; rather, they are meant to provoke more questions in the mind of the listener so that, out of that questioning and skepticism, he goes from the narrow field of problem-solving to the wider expanse of self-knowledge.
