This book consists of fourteen conversations discussing many essential questions. Those taking part include scientists, a Buddhist scholar, philosophers, artists and a Jesuit priest. None of them could be called devotees; rather, they came to question, clarify and challenge, something which in his lifetime Krishnamurti had always urged his listeners and readers to do. Various subjects are explored in a series of dialogues between Krishnamurti and Iris Murdoch, David Bohm, Huston Smith, Jonas Salk and many others. In the last two decades of his life, Krishnamurti engaged in several discussions with scientists, Buddhist scholars, philosophers, artists and a Jesuit priest. This volume contains his conversations with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Renee Weber, David Bohm, Jonas Salk, Walpola Rahula, Bernard Levin, Huston Smith, Iris Murdoch, and Pupul Jayakar. These offer a profound insight into his philosophy of life.
