Jiddu Krishnamurti is regarded globally as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers of all time. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption, of the individual’s search for security and happiness, and the need for mankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt, and sorrow. He explained with great precision the subtle workings of the human mind and pointed to the need for bringing to our daily life a deeply meditative and spiritual quality.
Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986) did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concerned people’s everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption, of the individual’s search for security and happiness, and the need for mankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt and sorrow. He explained his thoughts on the subtle workings of the human mind and pointed to the need for use in daily life.
Krishnamurti had a passion for inquiry and the pursuit of truth. His numerous books explore the nature of human consciousness and the possibility of its transformation through inquiry and insight. Krishnamurti engaged in dialogue with many modern thinkers, commentators, politicians and scientists.
Education was always one of Krishnamurti’s chief concerns. He felt that if only the young and the old could be awakened to their conditioning – of nationality, religion, prejudices, fears, and desires – they might bring to their lives a totally different quality with a much deeper understanding of the forces that give rise to conflict.
