5.0 out of 5 stars Inward Revolution = Outward Revolution, 24 Nov 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A collection of transcripts of 14 lectures given between December 1970 and February 1971.
Krishnamurti, the Punk rock, Kung fu, anti-guru, continues his attack on the misuse of, thought, meditation and authority, whilst promoting self-observation as the only way out of the horrors of inward and outward human existence. Intelligence has been annihilated by thought, he posits, which wastes energy through fragmenting the inner and outer world for utility and pleasure and is permanently engaged in chasing the illusion of security and permanence. The same themes as most of his books, from what I can gather, although he does find new ways of communicating the same messages, you find yourself knowing which direction the script is going most of the time, which is fine if you need his ideas reinforcing or you haven't just finished one of his other books...which I had.
As I've only read three of his books I'm not really in a position to comment on how this volume compares with the multitude of others. It's shorter than "The Awakening of Intelligence" but less diverse and it still takes considerable effort to read for no apparent reason, which may be you're dull thought based habituated mind protesting at the usurping of its authority...I don't know. Anyway the pattern that is emerging is that the transcripts of his lectures are very loosely grouped around a common theme but as the root of most problems have the same cause the conversations inevitably end on the same ground, albeit via different paths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Esoteric Reality., 18 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
J Krishnamurti is a most profound and prolific identifier of all that needs to change within the human psyche. Reading any series of talks by him tends to instigate radical change within the listener/reader.

Inward revolution is remarkable in that any reader, with the tiniest interest in change, will come away from this experience with a hugely altered understanding of what awareness actually means.

Jiddu Krishnamurti is a guide through the maze of false identity/ies,leading to a genuine understanding of the true meaning of meditation.

It would be pointless for me to continue writing about this book, please read J Krishnamurti and unfold the potential within.
