From the Publisher:
Described by the Dalai Lama as one of the greatest thinkers of the age, J. Krishnamurti has influenced millions throughout the 20th century, and his thoughts continue to resonate even a decade after his death. His words have influenced such notables as Dr. Jonas Salk, Aldous Huxley, Joseph Campbell, Van Morrison, Bruce Lee and countless other students of the spiritual path, ranging from scientists to philosophers to artists of all kinds. Practical, profound and timeless, Krishnamurti's ideas -- rejecting the prejudices of traditional learning, celebrating personal, spiritual freedom, and the individual's search for Truth -- are inspiring now more than ever. Collected in this comprehensive volume are the most illuminating and essential of his writings and talks: words that are of vital relevance to today's spiritual environment, and catalytic in guiding us toward a deeper understanding of ourselves, our place in the universe, and the mysteries of the human condition. Total Freedomis both an introduction to Krishnamurti and an essential, extensive collection. It includes selections from his early work to his later, Krishnamurti to Himself: His Last Journal, and his valuable insight into the nature of the self, meditation, sex, love, and the mysteries of life and death. Revealing his core teachings in all their eloquence and power, these writings incite us to recognize that Truth is a pathless land, to accept no spiritual authority -- not even himself -- and to think critically, that we may free our minds and see clearly on our own personal journey. As revolutionary now as ever, Krishnamurti remains, for independent minds, one of the most influential guides in the quest for spiritual understanding and enrichment. "[Krishnamurti's] language is naked, revelatory and inspiring. It pierces the clouds of philosophy which confound our thought and restores the springs of action... He initiated no new faith or dogma, questioned everything, cultivated doubt and perseverance, freed himself of illusion and enchantment of pride, vanity, and every subtle form of dominion over others... I know of no other living man whose thought is more inspiring." --Henry Miller "In my own life Krishnamurti influenced me profoundly and helped me personally break through the confines of my own self-imposed restrictions to my freedom." --Deepak Chopra, M.D.Counted among his admirers are Jonas Salk, Aldous Huxley, David Hockney, and Van Morrison, along with countless other philosophers, artist, writers and students of the spiritual path. Now the trustees of Krishnamurti’s work have gathered his very best and most illuminating writings and talks to present in one volume the truly essential ideas of this great spiritual thinker. Total Freedom includes selections from Krishnamurti’s early works, his ‘Commentaries on Living’, and his discourses on life, the self, meditation, sex and love. These writings reveal Krishnamuri’s core teachings in their full eloquence and power: the nature of personal freedom; the mysteries of life and death; and the ‘pathless land’, the personal search for truth and peace. Warning readers away from blind obedience to creeds or teachers – including himself – Krishnamurti celebrated the individual quest for truth, and thus became on of the most influential guides for independent-minded seekers of the twentieth century – and beyond.
A collection of writings giving an overview of Krishnamurti's philosophy.
Author Bio
J. Krishnamurti
Jiddu Krishnamurti was one of the most famous spiritual leaders of the 20th century. He was born in India in 1895, the son of a tax collector who later retired and worked for the Theosophical Society. In 1909, Jiddu Krishnamurti was "discovered" by Charles Leadbeater and soon adopted by Annie Besant, two leaders of that organization. Besant and Leadbeater declared that Jiddu was destined to become the next World Teacher, and they provided for his care and for his education in England. They also formed an organization called the Order of the Star in the East to promote him to the world. While under their aegis, Krishnamurti, as Alcyone, published a book in which he channelled the teaching of a master. However, in 1929, Krishnamurti delivered a speech in which he dissolved the Order of the Star in the East, broke away from the Theosophists, and made his famous declaration, "Truth is a pathless land." For the next half century, Krishnamurti traveled the globe, delivering talks, writing, and shaping what he called his "core teachings," which centered on freedom, self-knowledge, and "choiceless awareness." Krishnamurti met several world leaders, and his influence has been acknowledged by many, including George Bernard Shaw, Aldous Huxley, Henry Miller, and Deepak Chopra.
