Think on These Things has sold more than three million copies and has been printed worldwide in more than twenty-two languages. According to Krishnamurti, real culture is neither a matter of breeding nor of learning, nor of talent, nor even of genius, but is “the timeless movement to find happiness, God, truth.” And, “when this movement is blocked by authority, by tradition, by fear, there is decay.” This popular book comprises a series of talks and question & answer meetings with students and teachers at the Krishnamurti schools in India. Some of the questions are: What is shyness? What is jealousy? What is happiness in life? What is sorrow? The most popular Krishnamurti book, Think on These Things, is a series of talks and questions and answers with students and teachers from the Krishnamurti schools. This is a wonderful first book for readers. From the book: Questioner: You tell us that there should be no resistance in paying attention. How can this be? Krishnamurti: I have said that any form of resistance is inattention, distraction. Don't accept it, think it over. Don't accept anything, it does not matter who says it, but investigate the matter for yourself. If you merely accept, you become mechanical, dull, you are already dead; but if you investigate, if you think things out for yourself, then you are alive, vital, a creative human being.
