Think on These Things By Jiddu Krishnamurti
Think on These Things By Jiddu Krishnamurti. Lucid and penetrating observations on the world around us and our place in it from a spiritual teacher of the Hindu tradition.
‘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.’
