The Impossible Question

We never put the impossible question. We are always putting the question of what is possible. If you put an impossible question, your mind then has to find the answer in terms of the impossible, not of what is possible. All the great scientific discoveries are based on this—the impossible.

By means of a series of exchanges, Krishnamurti helps his audience to explore matters such as personal relationships, the nature of pleasure and joy, the origin of thought, and meditation, all of which revolve round the central issue of man’s search for self-knowledge. The book reveals the unique approach of a profound teacher and will prove invaluable to those who wish to gain insights into his philosophy or into themselves.
