Pressestimmen

"Perhaps we would have to go back to Gautama to find another teacher as convincingly austere, as rationally lucid and who, offering nothing but liberation from the self, yet can bring conviction to those who have so often been disappointed." -- "Dr. Gerald Heard""The material contained in this volume was originally presented in the form of talks to students, teachers and parents in India, but its keen penetration and lucid simplicity will be deeply meaningful to thoughtful people everywhere, of all ages, and in every walk of life. Krishnamurti examines with characteristic objectivity and insight the expressions of what we are pleased to call our culture, our education, religion, politics and tradition; and he throws much light on such basic emotions as ambition, greed and envy, the desire for security and the lust for power all of which he shows to be deteriorating factors in human society."-- "from the Editor's Note"-- "from the Editor's Note""Krishnamurti's observations and explorations of moderm man's estate are penetrating and profound, yet given with a disarming simplicity and directness. To listen to him or to read his thoughts is to face oneself and the world with an astonishing morning freshness."--" Anne Morrow Lindbergh"--" Anne Morrow Lindbergh"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Discover your own truth. 16. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
In this book, first printed in the 1960s, Krishnamurti challenges the audience / reader to want to think for themselves. He invites them to learn about their own thinking processes by observing their thoughts, motivations and reactions, etc. Krishnamurti explores the audience's questions with insight and kindness, challenging traditional patterns of thought and cultural values. He examines attitudes, such as fear, envy, ambition and the desire for security, that motivate our actions, illuminating the ways in which these attitudes hinder our freedom, intelligence and ability to be kind, vivacious entities. "If you are here to merely have confirmation, to be encouraged in your own thinking, then your listening has very little meaning. But, if you are listening to find out, then your mind is free, not committed to anything... therefore capable of discovery." pg. 27
The language of the book is easy, purposeful and direct. The material is derived from actual lectures in India. The book is setup in a series of chapters in which the first section is a monologue followed by a Q&A session. A cool feature of the book is that it has an index of all the audience's questions. I learned a lot from reading this book, and I highly recommend it to readers of all ages.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Provoking and inspirational 25. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I received this book from my son for Christmas last year and have been reading it off and on since then. This is not a book you read like a novel.(The plot is very thin and the characters less than developed.) The plot is life and the characters are you and I. I have read some of the other customers reviews and some of the negative ones only emphasis what he has written. That we are all afraid to be something more than we are already. It would require that we give up old fears (which can be our safety net) and hatreds which have carried us along in the past. It is always safer to stick to the trodden path: the dangers are less but the satisfactions are fewer. We know changing will be difficult and may ostrasize us from our community and the thought of actually putting into practice the simple action of "love" seems too easy to be true. I am going to keep this book in my collection and lend it to friends who have been searching for truth also.

5.0 von 5 Sternen In Search of Deep Understanding and Insight 25. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I have read literally hundreds of books and manuals in my search for understanding of both myself, and those other sojourners that I share this planet with. To wit, two manuals of life and understanding have impacted my life beyond all others combined, they are, "The Holy Bible", and "Think On These Things", by J. Krishnamurti. The wisdom contained in this book defies, even mocks the words to describe it. If you are looking for truth, wisdom, and are open to rattle the very foundations of both your life and the true meaning of education (both in and out of the home), then I cannot encourage you enough to spend the rest of your life with this book of revelation. And may I wish you peace in your search for a greater meaning in life....

5.0 von 5 Sternen Think on this 22. Mai 2000
Von Raja Jain
Format:Taschenbuch
I have read this book and my background is from the eastern culture. Our family talks alot about how we as people make life so much more difficult then it is. One thing to remember about people such as Krisnamurti is that he was never married and never had children. I understand his messege and do beleive we as human beings were meant for more but not everyone feels this way and as long as money is involved in this society we will never reach were we should be. If you are going to read this would be a good book to read and review and hopefully keep you thinking on these things. I think that was his purpose, to try and get people to start thinking again instead of being the goverments guinea pigs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A genuine pursuit of enlightenment 24. September 1999
Von K. Wu
Format:Taschenbuch
This is perhaps the most accessible collection of Krishnamurti's teachings and insights, which isn't to say he's an obscurantist, or that the content is easy. Unlike the scores of self-appointed gurus and self-help peddlers pandering to lazy and impatient seekers, Krishnamurti offers direct, often uncomfortable, but ultimately liberating insights into the hows and whys of the human mind, and what lies beyond it.
Personally I've read this book dozens of times and always see a little more clearly and deeply with each re-reading. Folks who are repelled by both traditional religion and New Age trash, yet hunger for deeper questions and answers, may draw tremendous wisdom from this book.
