Overview

A series of Study Books was produced in the 1990s for use as concentrated study material on a particular topic at the four-day dialogue weekends held in Ojai, California. Editors utilized the CD-ROM to compile an extensive collection of excerpts for each theme-which range from one sentence in length to an entire talk-and they have organized them into chapters of subsidiary topics. These books are an invaluable resource of excerpted material as they offer a sustained survey of each subject, allowing for a deeper comprehension of what Krishnamurti was conveying. Much of the material has been drawn from the Collected Works of J. Krishnamurti, Vols. I-XVII, the record of Krishnamurti's public talks from 1933 to 1967.

Meet the Author

Krishnamurti, Jiddu born of middle-class Brahmin parents, was recognized at age fourteen as the coming World Teacher. Krishnamurti claimed allegiance to no caste, nationality or religion and was bound by no tradition. He traveled the world and spoke spontaneously to large audiences until the end of his life at age ninety. He said man has to free himself of all fear, conditioning, authority and dogma through self-knowledge and this will bring about order and psychological mutation.
