By Jiddu Krishnamurti, Allan W Anderson
At a time of unheard of outer switch within the political and social spheres, is there a basic internal switch that's demanded of every one in every of us? within the eighteen dialogues with Professor Allan W Anderson, Emeritus Professor of non secular stories at San Diego country collage. J. Krishnamurti shows that pinning our hopes on prepared faith, technology, political ideology or the marketplace financial system not just fails to deal with simple human difficulties yet truly creates them. They manner out of our problems, Krishnamurti states, can in basic terms begin within the brain of every considered one of us, in an wisdom of how we really understand lifestyles, ourselves and others. Professor Anderson, all through those dialogues, refers to many passages of Western and jap spiritual scriptures that he believes were misunderstood and which in reality aid Krishnamurti's statements. The dialogues, reproduced in an edited and just a little abridged model during this ebook, happened at San diego country college from 18 to twenty-eight February 1974.

K: With everything it involves; and it is only then the seeing is the doing. Then it is finished: and the mind can never revert to success and therefore become bitter and all the things that follow. A: What you are saying is that, once this happens, there is no reversion. K: It is finished. A: It’s not something that one has to keep up. K: Of course not. A: Well, fine. I’m delighted we’ve established that. K: Now take an actual instance. In 1928 I happened to be the head of a tremendous organization, a religious organization, and I saw around me various religious organizations, sects, Catholic, Protestant, all trying to find truth.
A: And that if this doesn’t take place the whole thing is meaningless. K: So, sir: what is the relationship of the teacher to the student in education? Is he training him merely to conform, is he training him to cultivate mere memory, like a machine? Is he training him or is he helping him to learn about life—not just about sex—life, the whole immensity and complexity of living? We are not doing this. A: No, we refer students to subject matters. They take this, they take that, they take the other and there are prerequisites for taking these other things; and this builds a notion of education which has absolutely no relationship to what you have just said about life.
K: Absolutely. Life is action. A: I should say for our readers that this is from “The Awakening of Intelligence”, and it’s on page 196 in the chapter on Freedom. ‘Through negation’—I take it that’s a word for this act—‘that thing which alone is the positive’—the word ‘alone’ came over to me with the force of something unique. K: Yes, sir. A: Something that is not continuous with anything else. That thing which alone is the positive comes into being. There is no temporal hiatus here, so we are back to where we began in our earlier conversations about not being dependent on knowledge and time.
