really liked it
Read in January, 2007

I can never tell if krishnamuri is a brilliant philosopher or more akin to a child asking his mother questions about EVERYTHING it sees.

"mommy what's that"
"it's a pen dear"
"mommy what's that..."

His questions are explained in a way that makes them extremly thought provoking. I have lost hours of sleep muddling over even his simple philosophies, like the notion of love for example.

His core principle of never having an absolute understanding makes my brain do cartwheels. If your thinking philosophy, you HAVE to read him.
