Description

Described by the Dalai Lama as “one of the greatest thinkers of the age”, Jiddu Krishnamurti has influenced millions throughout the 20th century, including Aldous Huxley, Bertrand Russell, Henry Miller and Joseph Campbell.

Born of middle-class Brahmin parents in 1895, Krishnamurti was recognized at age fourteen by theosophists Annie Besant and C W Leadbetter as an anticipated world teacher and proclaimed to be the vehicle for the reincarnation of Christ in the West and of Buddha in the East. In 1929 he repudiated these claims and travelled the world, sharing his philosophical insights and establishing schools and foundations.

Because Krishnamurti had no interest in presenting theories, his thought is far removed from academic philosophy in the analytic tradition, yet his insights remain extremely relevant to contemporary philosophical theories and to those interested in understanding themselves and the world. Rather than a theorist, Krishnamurti is regarded as a seer and a teacher. He perceived inherent distorting psychological structures that bring about a division in the individual's consciousness between “the observer” and “the observed”. He believed this division was a potent source of conflict, both within the individual and externally for society as a whole, and offered a way to transcend these harmful structures through a radical transformation in human consciousness.

This is a collection of Krishnamurti's writings and lectures about the individual in relation to society. He examines the importance of inquiry, the role of the emotions, the relation between experience and the self, the observer/observed distinction, the nature of freedom, and other philosophical ideas.

Love is selfless

The good: I can't give this content anything less than a 5/5. Krishnamurti displays a refreshing disregard of any authority, even his own, at the same time revealing deep insight: just nails it, over and over again.

The warning: This book is presented as a series of lectures with questions and answers at the end of the lecture. The listener must be aware of the fact that Krishnamurti will list a number of observations about common human longings and fears, which are expected to be recognised by the listener through own self-examination. So here it is not enough to have an intellectual understanding (of psychology or whathaveyou), one must have done the actual work.

The bad: some of these conversations have ideas that can go quite deep. Ideally one wants to think about a certain sentence that has been said, and its implications and that forces one to pause the audiobook, or even rewind a little bit every now and then.

The ugly: The narration is clear, but robotic. It is somehow unforgivable to screw up the narration of a text that is, already by itself, written in the format of a conversation. One needs to really think twice first about the text and then about how the original conversation would sound like. This makes it more difficult to understand a content that by itself isn't easy to grasp, even in text form.

Strange but good

It's strange to hear what are clearly k's words, in the voice of another, specially after hearing a lot of him online directly on videos. But strangely it doesn't take away from what is being said. And if you've heard k talk, you know how his pauses and repeated affectations can be annoying. Which is eliminated in a voiced performance obviously. That's a great plus.

Having said that, there are other people conversing too, and there is Q and A in there, but here the performance is limited to one voice. The work around is saying their names or initials repeatedly through the dialogue. This is very disorienting. I'd rather have different voices for different people talking. The medium clearly allows for it. But it's not a large part of the book and so it can be given a pass I guess.

Great teaching :). Needs refinement.

The teaching is fantastic. I believe I understand his words due to reading other teachings and Alan watts.
However, it could be explained better. The way it's laid out here can get very confusing and contradictory. After listening to his teachings many times over, you start to get the idea behind the words. Stick with it and it will eventually hit you. :)

Illuminating

Found in it a path-less path to real freedom of the mind without the conditioning by authority. An insight into insight.

Krishnamurti

Excellent apps, as for Krishnamurti, he was a modern Socrates and I intend to continue reading his books and all about him in audible.

I wish I had read more about him in my youth.

Perhaps the deepest knowledge of yourself.

KM points to the deepest points in our minds. He is generous to share this.

A different perspective

Krishnamurti presents a different perspective that is secular and promotes the idea of self inquiry. Some parts were a bit repetitive, but perhaps necessary as we are all deluded in this concept of self/ego. This is the concept of Annata (or no self) in Buddhism but Krishnamuti poignantly explains that thought alone, cannot lead to wisdom because thought is limited and divisive.

absolut hörenswert

Nichts ablehnen, sondern aufmerksam beobachten.
J.K. ist immer interessant, zumindest für mich.

Das Ganze auf Deutsch wäre natürlich noch besser gewesen :)

Ein Buch für die Menschheit

Wahre Worte von einem der größten Denker der Menschheit. Sollte eigentlich in der ganzen Welt an den Schulen gelehrt werden, um endlich eine echte weltumfassende Veränderung unseres kollektiven Bewusstsein und damit unseres Dasein herbeizuführen.
