"The solution of a problem lies in the understanding of the problem; the answer is not outside the problem, it is in the problem. One cannot look at the problem very clearly if one is concerned with the answer, with the solution. Most of us are so eager to resolve the problem without looking into it," says Krishnamurti. 


Freedom from the Known

freedom from the knownEver since it was published in 1969, this book has rightly been regarded as a primer on Krishnamurti’s teachings. In this book, we have for the first time a synthesis of what Krishnamurti has to say about the human predicament and the eternal problems of living. His words have been taken from over a hundred talks to audiences of all ages and nationalities throughout Europe and India.

In these insightful discussions, Krishnamurti and Bohm reexamine such age-old conundrums as the meaning of time, the trap of social conditioning, the relationship of self and community, and the nature of consciousness.

happy is the manBetween 1948 and the early 1960s,  Krishnamurti was easily accessible, and many people came to him. On walks, in personal meetings, through letters, the relationships blossomed. He wrote a series of letters, found in this book, to a young friend who came to him wounded in body and mind. The letters reveal a rare compassion and clarity: the teaching and healing unfold; separation and distance disappear; the words flow; not a word is superfluous; the healing and the teaching are simultaneous.
