During the year 1948, Krishnamurti held as usual a series of public talks in India, but in Bombay and Poona his talks were interspersed with meetings with teachers and parents. These special sessions took the form of Krishnamurti answering questions on education put to him by the audience. As Krishnamurti emphasizes in his opening remarks, his chief, if not sole, concern is that it is ‘the educator who needs educating’. By which he means that the true teacher is not one who merely imparts information; he must first be rooted in self-knowledge and committed to bringing about a radical change in himself as a human being.
