Product Description

Product Description

Krishnamurti, one of the most beloved and renowned religious teachers of the
twentieth century, often taught his students that they must look at the state
of the world, with all its violence and conflict, if they are ever to
understand themselves. To turn away from world events was for him not to be
alive to what life has to teach.

a World in Crisis

presents a selection of talks that Krishnamurti gave on how to live in and
respond to troubling and uncertain times. His message of personal
responsibility and the importance of connecting with the broader world is
presented in a nonsectarian and nonpolitical way. Direct and ultimately
a World in Crisis

will resonate with readers today who are looking for a new way to understand
and find hope in challenging times.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless and welcome contribution 11 Jun 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Facing A World In Crisis: What Life Teaches Us In Challenging Times by the renowned spiritual philosopher J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986) is comprised of a number of talks that Krishnamurti gave on how to respond to the troubling events of the modern world ranging from natural disasters, to political wars and ethnic genocides. The individual talks are offered with a nonsectarian, nonpolitical perspective, life-affirming approach that will resonate in the hearts and minds of the readers. A timeless and welcome contribution to Eastern Philosophy studies, Facing A World In Crisis is strongly recommended reading, especially for those who seek to understand and benefit from Krishnamurti's enduring spiritual wisdom when addresses the problems and catastrophes of life around the world today.

Mr. K comes through once again aiding one to find one's true nature beyond the fog of the thinking mind. If one is interested in mental clarity, don't take a pill, read Mr. K. This book was never more needed than it is needed at this moment in our story. The absolute failure of the House of Representatives Tea party to give up their personal arrogance and selfishness is a real present life example of what we face unless folks are willing to look at themselves honestly and solve the real problems of life.which we are all responsible in creating.

Krishamurti should be taught in schools....all of his writing bring thinking back into the moment as awareness..calms the mind removing the active monkey from control. He makes you question your assumptions.

Jiddu Krishnamurti's teachings are an invitation to go inward and discover ourselves and this book is another invaluable tool in that inward journey.
