The best introduction to Krishnamurti is Krishnamurti himself—his books, video and audio recordings—and not interpreters and commentators. And this book is meant primarily for those unacquainted with his vision of life which he maintained, was not his teachings but the teachings and never my teachings.

The problem of daily living that confront every human being and Krishnamurti’s original approach to them, as well as his timeless vision of the sacred, form that basis of the selections, which comprise a variety of genres that he employed to communicate his message – public talks answers to questions, writings, interviews, diaries, dictations, letters, dialogues and discussions-and which range over nearly five decades, from 1948 to 1983.
