‘What is it all about? Has life any meaning at all?’
Jiddu Krishnamurti is regarded as one of the greatest thinkers and spiritual teachers of all time. Eckhart Tolle, Joseph Campbell and Alan Watts are among those indebted to his writings.
This classic work distils Krishnamurti’s key ideas on the problems we face as we try to make sense of our lives. Provocative and iconoclastic, he challenges us to strip away our preconceptions, to forget all we think we know about subjects such as love, violence, beauty and death, and to discover our true natures in the here and now. Once we change ourselves, we can change society and the world in which we find ourselves. Understanding ourselves marks the beginning of wisdom.
Change is possible. It is a question of awareness. Here. Krishnamurti give us the means to shake off fear and to find truth. He offers freedom from the known.
