Overview

Drawn from transcripts of talks given to Indian students, this book explores the danger of competition; the value of solitude; the need to understand both the conscious and the unconscious mind; and the critical differences between concentration and attention and knowledge and learning. Krishnamurti exposes the roots of fear and eradicates deeply entrenched habits of tradition, limitation, and prejudice. The life he espouses requires a complete revolution of thought—a transformation that occurs only through an education that concentrates on the total development of the human being, an education carefully described in this simple and powerful book.
 

Compilado de transcripciones de lecturas presentadas a estudiantes índios, este libro explora el peligro de la competencia; el valor de la soledad; la necesidad de entender la mente consciente y el subconsciente y las diferencias críticas entre la concentración y la atención, la sabiduría y el aprendizaje. Krishnamurti expone la fuente del miedo y erradica hábitos arraigados de tradición, limitación y prejuicio. La vida que él propone requiere una revolución completa de la creencia—una trasformación que ocurre solamente por medio de una educación que se concentra en el desarrollo total del ser humano, una educación descrita cuidadosamente en este libro simple y poderoso.
