This book will raise your conscience.
After I read this book,my life now is complete.There is nothing else to say.I came across this book just by browsing through Barnes and Noble Eastern philosophy. After reading a few pages, I found myself reading the book for at least 30 minutes at the store's book shelf. I purchased this book that same day and when I got home I read the whole book from beginning to end at 3 times over that weekend. Now I will be purchasing all of Mr. Krishnamurti's works.

A new meaning of meditation as presented by one who may come to be known as the greatest spiritual teacher of our time...
My feeling is that in order to apppreciate this book readers may need to have a real longing for a view of meditation that transcends anything they think they may already know. J. Krisnamurti has an excellent command of english and speaks in a clear and authoritative way, he speaks to our innate intelligence and can resonate with it completely if allowed to....Was this review helpful?

How can one express, describe or convey the miraculously real effect of the Teachings? Reading and studying them is a never-ending journey into oneself and into the self of the whole humanity. Krishnamurti is a truthful mirror to all of us. Our life as a whole is deeply affected by his teachings. When I first saw him in 1982 in Saanen, I was dazzled by the splendour of the light that emanated from him, his head was like a fire ball, shining like the sun. Later on I read in one of his diaries that a fire ball was being put into his head and brain.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A must read for the spiritual seeker
This book points to the great Truth all seekers ponder for while staying clear of religious dogma and abstraction. If you are looking for pointers on specific instructions on how to meditate you might want to hold off on this book. Krishnamurti claims no path can bring you salvation for the road is a pathless one. For this reason he does not drone on about formulaic meditative practices. But you may never find writing that so deliberately reflects what an enlightened mind actually is. It is not as if an author is explaining Truth but, rather, reads as if Truth were speaking itself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
