Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Ria Newhouse
The Dalai Lama calls Krishnamurti "one of the greatest thinkers of the age." Time magazine named Krishnamurti, along with Mother Teresa, "one of the five saints of the twentieth century." Here Krishnamurti divides relationships into three main sectors: People: Person to Person; Society and Your Relationships; and What is the Purpose of Your Life? The text is divided into small snippets that might be appealing to teens because of their brevity, but the philosophical "sense" of the book is difficult to manage with so few explanations. For example, the question "Why Do We Think About Sex?" is met with a six-line answer. Although Krishnamurti is certainly one of the "great educators and philosophers of our time," his teachings might be a bit much for most teens to swallow. On the other hand, this book may serve the very niche audience it targets. Young philosophers who are questioning sexuality, religion, the purpose of life, God, or the Universe might find the right answers here. Just because those answers are brief does not mean that an interested teen cannot extend his knowledge and experience into the philosophical questions posed. The cover will not sell this book, and most teens will not know who Krishnamurti is, but keep it on the shelves. There will not be many like this one. Reviewer: Ria Newhouse

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.
