    Compelling Reading !

    ¿The Awakening of Intelligence¿ made me contemplate deeply on the common emotions and issues we face everyday. The book uses simple text to convey great depth of thought. Reading the book heightened my awareness of the collective spirit/consciousness that we create. The book throws light on the perils of conditioned /habituated thinking. Aptly titled, this book urges the reader to brush off the weight that we carry in our lives, and embarks the reader into an enlightening journey. I wonder if anyone can keep this book down, without completing it! This book is a must read and it holds a treasure of timeless wisdom!

    Wonderful

    This was the first book that I ever read from Krishnamurti. Personally, this book opened up a door to truth; my mind and heart are beyond words. His search for truth helped me understand myself and in return helped me understand others. He simply asks you to ask questions about things in everyday life and to not be afraid of the truth. The truth is what it is. This is a wonderful book. It will challenge your intellect and broaden your spirit.
