13 yaşındayken "dünya öğretmeni" seçilen Krishnamurti, hayatını dünyayı dolaşarak, insanlarla, yaşama ve dünyaya dair konuşarak geçirdi. Kendisine mesihlik yakıştırılmış olmasına rağmen bunu hiçbir zaman kabul etmedi. Onun için, karşılaştığı herkes başlı başına bir "birey"di. Bu nedenle öğretmekten çok paylaşmayı ilke edindi. Yine de dünya üzerindeki milyonlarca kişi ondan ...more

I read this at age 15, while ditching P.E. classes at school. Fair to say that it contributed significantly to my dropping out of school immediately, a choice by which I've not suffered in the least.

We all think. We all think a lot. There are myriad of thoughts that pervade the space of our mind. Everyday we confront them and are unable to either understand them or put a stop to them. Is thinking bad? No. We are what we believe. And our beliefs come from various sources: conditioning, books, education, experience, philosophies, religion, family values etc. But thinking is able to question them and if we are willing to shed them in the event of realizing their uselessness or take a mighty st ...more

i was introduced to krishnamurti at a time when i was looking for closure in many painful aspects of my life (childhood). in his own way, he sat me down alone, and forced with a gentle push, to examine the quiet truths me all have access to if we slow our mind and open our eyes.

he's been a tremendous healer.

As a child, Krishnamurti had the bizarre experience of being chosen as the spokesperson/messiah of the Theosophists. He later renounced their group and his teachings are centered on mental freedom and non-allegiance to a creed or belief system. He is anti-guru, anti-mantra, anti-puja. He teaches that the purpose of education is freedom of the mind and people should do what they love and not get trapped in materialism. What strikes me as so ironic is that today higher and formal education is tigh ...more

The only way out of our trap of destructiveness is personal change. And the only way to change is to watch one's thoughts with a keen and open mind and learn how and why one thinks what one does. Doing so will help us drop the loads of useless social and cultural baggage that we are weighed down by. Baggage that comes from our parents and by our culture and by our schools and by our religions. It is this that Krishnamurti says will lead to a revolt because one will be able to see for the first t ...more

Wonderfully thought-provoking, sometimes infuriatingly so!
Krishnamurti's mission is no less than the purging of the self from our thinking, so this is much more a "how to think" than a "what to do" book. The chapters are structured as Q & A sessions between Krishnamurti and his students which makes them all the more readable. Interestingly, Krishnamurti's teachings do not reduce well to soundbites so I won't quote them here - there's no witty aphorisms - it's his steady, unwavering gaze into

One of the best books I read!! Great narration by Mr.Krishna murti!! Though some of the points are different from what I believe, I liked the way he presented and respect his opinion!!

I feel Mr. Krishna murti and swamy vivekananda are like two sides of a coin!! Both have their own perceptions but focus on the same point, inspiring youth and stressing on how to leave fear and achieve goals!!

In the middle, few chapters went on with a dull note but on the whole, this is one of the best inspiring b

One can never have enough Krishnamurti. He makes one think on these things not because he ordains it but because it is sanity, if one lives and loves honestly.

Yine Krishnamurti ve yine uzuuun süren okuma dönemi. Bilinenden Kurtulmak'taki gibi sindire sindire okudum. Açıkçası bu daha kolay okunan bir kitap. Okullarda küçük çocuklarla, anne babalarla ve eğitmenlerle yapılan söyleşiler konuları üzerinden bir araya getirilmiş. Baştan sona okumak yerine hayatınızın o döneminde sizi ilgilendiren bir konuyu seçip o bölümü okuyabilirsiniz. Her bölüm önce bir açıklama metni arkasındansa her yaştan dinleyenlerin soruları

I believe liberal arts colleges should be giving copies of this book to every prospective student they come into contact with. One of the many things described is the nature and value of what we would call a liberal arts education in the United States.

The book is a transcription of questions and answers between a group of students-and-teachers and the author Jiddu Krishnamurti. The type of audience within the book determined its primary focus of grappling with questions of education. However, th

Wow! Krishnamurti is one of my favorite Indian philosophers. He gives penetrating observations on everything around us. Education, life, love, freedom, discipline, the mind, he touches so many subjects. He gives insight coming from a delicate balance of mind, heart and soul. Some of his passages still give me chills of realization when I read them. I have read many of the books from his library, but this is by far the most profound to me. Although it is an easy read, the messages contained withi ...more

Among the most thoughtful and provocative books I have ever read. Krishnamurti's brilliant mind is revealed in his lectures and responses to school children in India. Absolutely fascinating and a simple, beautiful vision of what is at the roots of what is wrong with the world, and how it can be righted.

Krishnamurti was my first exposure to Eastern ways of thinking. I was having significant difficulties at the time and his words completely changed my perspective. Even today, when I read this book, it takes my breath away. He had a gift for explaining how detachment can bring peace of mind. I am forever grateful for this book.

At times I grew frustrated in reading Krishnamurti’s “Think on These Things,” but I’m glad I stuck with it and finished it. While there may be holds and voids in Krishnamurti’s theories, ultimately his message of love and search for God are uplifting.

The book’s basic premise, reiterated countless times over its 247 pages, is that we should free ourselves of any religion, ideology, belief system or even past experience and view reality with a totally open, unclouded mind. He is especially contemp

If I could give this book a 0 star I would. I wouldn't go into the negative, but I would definitely give it a zero. I was required to read this book for a paper, but even if that had not been the case after reading the first chapter I would have gone to return the book. He literally talks down to the listener/reader. "Do you understand? Should I speak more slowly so it is easier" "Do you understand what love is?" "Why do you love your mother, father, or siblings".

We non-conformists could be a lot of things to this world but one thing we aren't is being illogical. A quality little less understood and even lesser in practice by the larger populace but a rite of passage if you want to be amongst us. There is no question that Mr. Krishnamurti occupies a place of respect in this tiny but shunned world of ours but any non-conformist worth his salt will say that Mr. Krishnamurti said a few things south of logical. Case in example being, when explaining about a ...more

No wonder Krishnamurti didn't have a huge following. He was brilliant, thought-provoking, intellectual, and a spiritual teacher who didn't like God much. If you want to have your views challenged, read this man who definitely had one of the best minds of the 21st century. If you were to categorize him (you shouldn't), Krishnamurti was a Buddhist who overdosed on Buddha.

PS (1). Yes, it's true, Krishnamurti would have HATED this review. He didn't believe in comparisons and would have blushed readi

J. Krishnamurti is one of the few people who have had a great impact on my life through their words.

This book is among his best.

I used this to teach English to school students, and also discovered that it had language simpler than a Standard 5 English textbook.

This man talks about the important issues of life in a language simpler than one found in a Standard 5 English textbook.

His insights into human mind are extremely penetrating, and at times, disturbing, but always healing.

Krishnamurti is a very important light on the road. I recommend everybody to read him, even though it could be hard to understand completely, mainly, for the kind of person who is too attached to certain philosophical and/or religious beliefs. Krishnamurti would let you with a very healthy uncertainness, a sense of wondering, and no limits for your thought.

Krishnamurti is the antidote to Western-style ambition. Not just to obtain status-symbol possessions, but also the entire enterprise of "success". This book takes the form of a dialogue between a group of children and Krishnamurti making what he has to say more accessible than some of his other books.

This was a life changing event. His philosophy of freeing your mind to truly see the world around you and not get caught up in the everyday struggles for success and status is something everyone should embrace.

I have an older copy of this book, published in 1964...yellowed pages, that characteristic scent of old paperbacks, and the timeless words of Krishnamurti...makes for a good yearly read.

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born on 11 May 1895 in Madanapalle, a small town in south India. He and his brother were adopted in their youth by Dr Annie Besant, then president of the Theosophical Society. Dr Besant and others proclaimed that Krishnamurti was to be a world teacher whose coming the Theosophists had predicted. To prepare the world for this coming, a world-wide organization called the Order ...more
