Overview

Krishnamurti (1895–1986) went from his origins in a small south Indian village to become one of the great spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. He taught that the only way to peace on earth is the transformation of the human psyche—and that there is no path to this transformation, no method for achieving it, no gurus or spiritual authorities who can help. The transformation is a truth each of us must discover within ourselves.

This classic collection of brief excerpts from Krishnamurti's books and talks presents the essence of his teaching on meditation—a state of attention, beyond thought, which brings total freedom from authority and ambition, fears and separateness. This doubly expanded edition features even more of the great teacher's wisdom than the original version, and also includes some never-before-published material.

Meditations (Shambhala Pocket Classics) 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

If you have read some meditation books and now you want to keep yourself fresh in meditation, i recommand this book.You can reach it each time and read 10 pages of it. On the other hand the way that Krishnamurti looks at meditation is unique.So it would probably deepen your knowledge of true meditatin. But i still recommand that you have to have read about meditation before you pick this book up. You can keep it with yourself wherever you go and remind yourself of some unvaluable passages of this book by reading them in just 10 minutes.It;s easy to read and contemplate ob it.
