Overview

Widely recognized as one of the most influential spiritual teachers of the twentieth century, Jiddu Krishnamurti taught that in order for there to be peace in the world, we must each first make peace with ourselves. No spiritual path, leader, or personal or political philosophy will guide us in this endeavor, he said; this transformation of the human psyche is a truth that each of us must discover within.


Here, Krishnamurti teaches that the war and destruction human beings wreak on each other and the environment are caused by our misplaced attachment to a sense of self and individuality that leads to aggression, competition, greed, and conflict. When we recognize that our consciousness is not individual but common to all humans, we can work together in a spirit of cooperation and compassion. Krishnamurti shows that taking personal responsibility for our actions and reactions—in our relationships and in our lives—is the necessary first step toward a global view

Over the years, I've read many books by Krishnamurti, but it never ceases to amaze me how he can weave the underlying roots of religion, philosophy & psychology together so seamlessly!!! In "Where Can Peace Be Found?",it's as if I was back in India 3,000 years ago listening to Buddha teaching: it's that crystal clear & resonate. These writings will help you to cut through to the very core of reality & see things clearly, as if for the first time. If you are truly interested in finding & creating peace in your life & your relationships, this book is a must read!!!
