"[Krishnamurti's] language is naked, revelatory and inspiring. It pierces the clouds of philosophy which confound our thought and restores the springs of action.... He initiated no new faith or dogma, questioned everything, cultivated doubt and perseverance, freed himself of illusion and enchantment of pride, vanity, and every subtle form of dominion over others. . . . I know of no other living man whose thought is more inspiring." -- "Henry Miller""In my own life Krishnamurti influenced me profoundly and helped me personally break through the confines of my own self-imposed restrictions to my freedom." -- "Deepak Chopra, M.D."
Krishnamurti's teachings on personal freedom and the search for truth have influenced millions of people throughout the 20th century. This selection of his writings highlights the essential ideas of this spiritual thinker and celebrates the individual quest for truth.See all Product description

I started practicing Buddhism a year ago, and have genuinely found that this book has totally made me question Buddhism as an organised religion - something the Buddha himself would have insisted of his disciples. Of course, at the time of the Buddha, there was no such thing as 'Buddhism', only the Buddha himself.
Anyway, nn the end, I was left alone with my own mind and the wonderful potential to observe and Inquire. By doing this, a lot of insecurites are revealed to myself, and the patterns of thinking and acting that help to keep them in place are slowly deprived of their power. Since reading this book, I have found that I have become happier and more authentic in my presonal life. I think that this book has the potential to touch many people on any 'spiritual path' - providing it is read with an open mind.
I still draw a lot of inspiration from Buddhism - indeed, there is a lot of overlap between the Dharma and the teachings of Krishnamurti - but I no longer look to Buddhism as an authority to imitate.
I would also recommend Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoches 'The Sacred Path of the Warrior' - also available on Amazon.
Peace and Happiness.
But not to follow JK but to investigate and unlock inside myself the space where the self is not.
Will keep reading it as growth continues. I see JK's books as a good partner, a good aide to stay within what I really am.
Buy it and read it slowly and do it.
This is a good selection of JK texts, it's a great book to start reading JK.
