On Krishnamurti s Teachings
This seminal collection of works by Allan Anderson expresses his deep concern with vital matters that are shared by all of humanity. His exploration into questions that profoundly affect people of every race and gender, from every quarter of the globe, are brought into focus in his discerning questions posed to J. Krishnamurti. In 1974 he held 18 one hour conversations with the philosopher, teacher and author Krishnamurti, who was perhaps the most noted iconoclast of his day. One who spoke on a wide range of topics, often focusing on 'what is', as he put it. His teaching pointed again and again to not being hobbled by the influence of others, be they those we look up to such as Gurus, Priests and Masters but, also the culture into which we are born, with its deep impact on our conditioned mindset. Our admiration can also include Rulers, Kings or Dictators whose iron hand can impose a sense of order into the confusion and disorder of our lives. Our beliefs, the rules set out by our conditioned past, can prevent us from direct observation and true insight. As a teacher Krishnamurti did not offer comfort or consolation, but rather asked that we take direct responsibility for our actions and to our relationship with others. As the interviews continued under the challenging exploration of both Anderson and Krishnamurti, the topics plumb depths that could only be achieved by those who are able to interact with direct responsiveness. The universality of the topics, ranging in part from questions regarding Fear, Desire, Death, Religion and Authority and lastly Meditation, to offering the widest scope for those willing to face essential questions. The rapport with which the two men interact, the open minded approach to serious issues, indicate not only the depth and passion of their concern but the ability to really listen. Each responding to the other, not as if from across the ravine of pre-held positions, but each looking afresh at every issue as it arises. Lastly, the awakening of that supreme intelligence which does not depend on any authority and which is beyond all thought can only come about from the well-spring of direct perception. Each man, in his own way, makes clear that such perception is possible. (From the Foreword by Evelyne Blau)

The Awakening of Intelligence
This Comprehensive Record Of J. Krishnamurti S Teaching Is An Excellent, Wide-Ranging Introduction To The Great Philosopher S Thought. Krishnamurti Discusses Themes Such As Conflict, Fear, Violence, Religious Experience, Self-Knowledge And Intelligence, And Examines Specific Issues Such As The Role Of The Teacher And Tradition, The Need For Awareness Of Cosmic Consciousness , And The Problem Of Good And Evil.
On God contemplates our search for the sacred. "Sometimes you think life is mechanical, and at other times when there is sorrow and confusion, you revert to faith, looking to a supreme being for guidance and help." Krishnamurti explores the futility of seeking knowledge of the "unknowable" and shows that it is only when we have ceased seeking with our intellects that we may be "radically free" to experience reality, truth, and bliss. He present "the religious mind" as one that directly perceives the sacred rather than adhering top religious dogma.
Freedom from the Known
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.
On Fear is a collection of Krishnamurti's most profound observations and thoughts on how fear and dependence affect our lives and prevent us from seeing our true selves. Among the many questions Krishnamurti addresses in these remarkable teachings are: How can a mind that is afraid love? And what can a mind that depends on attachment know of joy? He points out that the voice of fear makes the mind dull and insensitive, and argues that the roots of hidden fears, which limit us and from which we constantly seek escape, cannot be discovered through analysis of the past. Questioning whether the exercise of will can eliminate the debilitating effects of fear, he suggests, instead, that only a fundamental realization of the root of all fear can free our minds.
On Love and Loneliness
In 1950 Krishnamurti said: "It is only when the mind is not escaping in any form that it is possible to be in direct communion with that thing we call lonliness, the alone, and to have communion with that thing, there must be affection, there must be love." On Love and Lonliness is a compelling investigation of our intimate relationships with ourselves, others, and society. Krishnamurti suggests that "true relationship" can come into being only when there is self-knowledge of the conditions which divide and islolate individuals and groups. Only by renouncing the self can we understand the problem of lonliness, and truly love.
The Impossible Question
By means of a series of exchanges, Krishnamurti helps his audience to explore matters like the origin and roots of thought, the limits of consciousness, the nature of pleasure and joy, personal relationships, and meditation, all of which revolve around the central issues of the search for self-knowledge. The Impossible Question reveals the unique approach of a profound thinker and teacher; it will prove invaluable to those who wish to gain insight into his philosophy or into themselves. Jiddu Krishnamurti was born in southern India in 1895 and died in 1986. The essence of his teachings is that societal change and world peace can only occur through a complete change of individual consciousness.

Krishnamurti s Notebook
When Krishnamurtis Notebook first became available in 1976, it was soon realized that it was a spiritually unique document giving his perceptions and experiences and describing his states of consciousness. It is a kind of diary but one that is little concerned with the day to day process of living, though very much aware of the natural world.
