about

‘The material contained in this volume was originally presented in the form of talks to students, teachers and parents in India, but its keen penetration and lucid simplicity will be deeply meaningful to thoughtful people everywhere, of all ages, and in every walk of life. Krishnamurti examines with characteristic objectivity and insight the expressions of what we are pleased to call our culture, our education, religion, politics and tradition; and he throws much light on such basic emotions as ambition, greed and envy, the desire for security and the lust for power – all of which he shows to be deteriorating factors in human society.’From the Editor’s Note‘Krishnamurti’s observations and explorations of modern man’s estate are penetrating and profound, yet given with a disarming simplicity and directness. To listen to him or to read his thoughts is to face oneself and the world with an astonishing morning freshness.’Anne Marrow Lindbergh

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Think on These Things I have read this book and my background is from the eastern culture. Our family talks alot about how we as people make life so much more difficult then it is. One thing to remember about people such as Krisnamurti is that he was never married and never had children. I understand his messege and do beleive we as human beings were meant for more but not everyone feels this way and as long as money is involved in this society we will never reach were we should be. If you are going to read this would be a good book to read and review and hopefully keep you thinking on these things. I think that was his purpose, to try and get people to start thinking again instead of being the goverments guinea pigs.
