Krishnamurti Foundation India

Beginnings of Learning

beginnings_of_learningThe heart of the matter is education. It is total understanding of man and not an emphasis on one fragment of his life.

Krishnamurti’s long-standing concern with the nature and problems of education resulted in the founding of schools in India, the United States and Brockwood Park in Hampshire. His conversations with students, teachers and parents at these schools, and in particular Brockwood, form the major part of this book. 

These lively and often intimate exchanges turn on practical, everyday matters as well as wider philosophical issues, as Krishnamurti encourages his audience to appreciate that self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom.
