A good introduction to Krishnamurti's view of meditation. Here, as in his other talks and writings, he focuses relentlessly on the importance of being aware of our daily life and actions, and asserts that unless there is order in our daily living, there is no basis for meditation. Negating the traditional notion of meditation as control of thought, or as a system to be practised, he says: 'There must be complete self-knowledge. So there must be no system, no method, no concentration -- and a mind that has understood all this through negation then becomes naturally very quiet.'
