On Freedom

ON FREEDOM is one of a series of theme books compiled from the talks, writings, and dialogues of J. Krishnamurti. Some of the other titles in this series are On God, On Relationship, On Fear, On Love and Loneliness, and On Living and Dying. “To me, freedom is absolutely necessary—freedom at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end—and that freedom is denied when I carry a problem over to the next day. This means that I have not only to discover how the problem arises, but also how to end it completely, surgically, so that there is no repetition, no carrying over of the problem, no feeling that I will think about it and find the answer tomorrow. If I carry the problem over to the next day, I have provided the soil in which the problem takes over, and then the pruning of that problem becomes still another problem,” says Krishnamurti
