Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Krishnamurti influenced me profoundly and helped me personally break through the confines of my own self-imposed restrictions to my freedom" (Deepak Chopra)

"One of the greatest thinkers of the age" (the Dalai Lama)

"Krishnamurti is one of the most significant human beings of the twentieth century" (Deepak Chopra)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Born in poverty in India, Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) became a leading spiritual and philosophical thinker whose ideas continue to influence us today. George Bernard Shaw declared that he was the most beautiful human being he had ever seen and Aldous Huxley was one of his close friends. Whether debating politics with Nehru, discussing theories with Rupert Sheldrake and Iris Murdoch, or challenging his students not to take his words at face value, Krishnamurti engaged fully with every aspect of life. He is regarded by many modern religious figures as a great teacher, an extraordinary individual with revolutionary insights; Joseph Campbell, Alan Watts, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra are all indebted to his writings.



Freedom from the Known is one of Krishnamurti's most accessible works. Here, he reveals how we can free ourselves radically and immediately from the tyranny of the expected. By changing ourselves, we can alter the structure of society and our relationships. The vital need for change and the recognition of its very possibility form an essential part of this important book's message.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mind shattering 19 novembre 2009
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book made a huge impact on me and how I perceive myself.
It showed me how many rules I impose on myself and how that
has no purpose. I felt very alert and also scared and confused
as I was willing to go within and look at myself.
I think it is most powerful if you are asking yourself questions and
staying open even if it gets uncomfortable. It shakes you up and makes you question
your life, love, etc. Some of my friends felt this book was repetitious
and boring. It spoke to me!
Some believe he is hypocritical by preaching to follow yourself, no religion
and no leaders or other belief systems. So, some people think it is contradictory
because he wants us to follow his advice. But, this is not how I interpreted it.
He really is encouraging you to listen to yourself at all times. Stay alert and
question everything at all times.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Independant thinking 1 décembre 2014
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book confirms everything I thought and make me feel more secure.
All the answers are in us and we don't need any dogma or another person to find them.

I would recommend it to every person who is on the path to independent thinking and need to feel right about it.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Mind blowing book, literally, from a very advanced human being. Written 50 years ago, but astonishingly fresh and actual, which is just another proof, if needed, of its authenticity and truthfulness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Challenge to be you 23 juillet 2002
Par Neal Reynolds - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In book after book, the central message is the same, and yet new appearing. Krishnamurti's challenge is to find yourself rather than follow someone else's path.
This may seem rather scary. There's no shortage of churches and groups that will willingly take you in and instruct you in your thinking and doing. And you will emerge thinking another person's thoughts, doing as another thinks you should do.
J. Krishnamurti is unique in his writings. Sure, you will find a little inconsistency, and he will even admit to this. He does not claim to know it all. But he does know how to inspire one to search for that which is within and to do so indepently.
You will not find immediate answers in Krishnamurti's writing. The answers are to be found in yourself. But this book along with his others will give you the impetus.
And this is probably the best "first" book of his to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best single K book 20 avril 2004
Par swandiver - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I've read (and re-read) about 15 of K's books. This is the single best, most concise, most thorough of the them all, in my humble opinion. I bought 20 copies of it and gave them all to friends, family, co-workers, and some of my students (I teach at a college). I probably will buy 20 more (at least) of this book to give to others. I would also highly recommend "The First and Last Freedom" and "Total Freedom" for good, more in-depth and relatively thorough overviews of K's teachings; as well as "On God" (for those seeking "god"); "On Relationship" (for those looking for relationship advice); "On Right Livelihood" (for those considering career choices) "On Education" (for teachers and students) and "Think on These Things" or "Life Ahead" as two simply-worded introductions that even children can read and undertand (K was speaking to schoolchildren and their parents). "Krishnamurti's Journal", "Commentaries on Living, First Series", "Krishnamurti's Notebook" and "Krishnamurti to Himself" all offer beautifully poetic descriptions of nature and people, as well as answers to questions, all of which are fabulous for meditation. "Freedom, Love and Action" is a relatively short read compared to most of K's books, but I've found it to be particularly touching. But then, I would *strongly* recommend *all* of K's books for those so inclined! But if I had to pick ONE K book to share with the world (as I have done) THIS is that book. And every time I read it (about half a dozen times now) it speaks volumes every time. But as other reviewers have warned, don't read anything by K unless you are ready and willing to have your entire current belief system cut to shreds, as all your most "sacred" beliefs and values are exposed for the false, conditioned ideas that they are . . .

4.0 étoiles sur 5 revolution inside 21 février 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have read several Krishnamurti books, all of them great. After reading them I lend them out and usually don't get them back. But that's good because those people will probably lend them to other people, and so on.
One need only read a single Krishnamurti book because they all contain the same themes, most important of which is the idea that "truth is a pathless land." He states that if one wants peace in the world, TRULY wants peace, he/she must abandon the following: organized religion, nationalism, sociological ideology (capitalism, communism, socialism, etc.), leaders, teachers, the past, and more. That doesn't sound possible, does it?
As well, he claims that true meditation is not sitting in the lotus position and pushing away thoughts or chanting mantras. Rather, true meditation is "choiceless awarness," meaning simply observing life without judgment. Don't ever judge at all? That doesn't sound possible either, does it?
He says that love is all important, and we must learn to be more sensitive and compassionate. Often, he talks about sitting and looking at a beautiful sunset, or a tree, or a bird in flight. These are simple things that are full of meaning if we just take the time to admire them. They are so beautiful that just for a moment you forget about yourself, and your "self" is the cause of all your suffering.
Though he rejects all organized religion, it just so happens that his remarks are quite similar to what a Buddhist would say. He's big on compassion, "meditation," and living in the present. But what is refreshing about Krishnamurti is his bluntness. He doesn't hesitate to call all religions "stupid" or "foolish" because they separate people, and that separation causes conflict.
The most profound thing that I have read by Krishnamurti is about forgiveness. He said that feeling insult and then trying to forgive the offender is USELESS! If you are hurt it is already too late. Instead, let go of your own precious self- image and such attacks lose their effect. No one has ever put it like that before! It is such wisdom that makes reading Krishnmurti so enjoyable.
The trouble is that his advice works beautifully in one's own mind, but not so well in action. One still feels angry, jealous, and afraid. There is still war, starvation, and malice in the world. And just when you think you've stopped following leaders or gurus, you realize you have not. Your guru is in fact Krishnamurti.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is the most comprehensive commentary on living. 25 août 1999
Par guru_2001@hotmail.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book summarizes the teachings of J. Krishnamurti. If any human being could read one book in their lives this should be the one. After reading the book one can get the sense of immense potential in terms of freedom, love, and joy.
One can see for oneself the influence of culture and tradition on our thought process at a fundamental level. One can see how this influence conditions our mind and distorts the perception of facts. At the same time the human mind has an inner demand to be free from this influence.
Our desire to be free is pacified by organized religions, gurus, psychologists, and propaganda by the politicians. However, it does not die until an answer is found.
So, if the desire to be free is present even the minutest of forms then this book can be a true beginning in life of freedom and happiness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The long road home 13 décembre 2004
Par Jack Purcell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Krisnamurti urges us to follow a path that runs entirely contrary to modern conditioning. The paradox of modern man lies in the fact that for the first time in human history he has the luxury of time and wealth to find himself, but the certainty that he automatically knows everything that needs knowing. Modern man hides in the forest of the known, secure and out of reach of meaning for his existence.

This book is not to be taken lightly, to be read and tossed aside for the next mystery or adventure story. It is not about escape from, but rather about escape to a reality most of humanity hasn't the courage to acknowledge, much less enter to find a different foundation for continuing.

It's tempting not to recommend this book at all without a certified statement from prospective buyers to read the words carefully, to examine the phrases and the meaning behind the phrases. If you are unwilling to do so your money will be wasted.
