J. Krishnamurti was renowned for the penetrating insight and immediacy of his spiritual teaching. Radical in his day for seeking truth beyond the boundaries of religion, ideology, or tradition, he declared that "Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever." He traveled and lectured throughout the world, calling for a new approach to life and spirituality.


In this compilation of Krishnamurti's most essential teachings, he explores what he calls "the art of living."

These timeless teachings guide us to live our lives simply, intelligently, and with great love—free from the bonds of sorrow and fear.
