We all think We all think a lot There are myriad of thoughts that pervade the space of our mind Everyday we confront them and are unable to either understand them or put a stop to them Is thinking bad No We are what we believe And our beliefs come from various sources conditioning books education experience philosophies religion family values etc But thinking is able to uestion them and if we are willing to shed them in the event of realizing their uselessness or take a mighty stand for them in the event of realizing their truth then clearly thinking is of great help Now is it not important to know whether most of the thoughts we spend our time on are worth pondering or not Is it not important to know that outside our so called contented shell of a life there exists amazing opportunities that makes one feel closes to oneself and life All that should be achieved with the effort of this thing called 'mind'This book is MrKrishnamurti's one attempt among countless others that urge one to think on certain important aspects of life Why is it necessary It is necessary so that an individual may lead a beautiful life; so that the mind is ever young and is in tune with the dynamic truth of life It is necessary so that one can be poetic romantic and at the same time be completely alert and watchful to the sheer reality of life A fearless a happily discontented and a free individual is what he wants one to be and only that person can be a truly revolutionaryWith such simple language and immeasurable intensity of thought this book is one of the greatest reads available out there I shall recommend this book to one and all; to free thinkers it is a sheer delight and to those who think less it shall give their thought processes a new vitality And thus it surely paves a path for anyone out there to be thoughtful alert and in the process a considerate human being It is one of those books whose purpose shall be served only when one will try to implement even the easiest of things said And it is important to know that you really understand what is being said and do not mould that according to your own notions and prejudices Therefore read this book with a silent empty and open mind and you will learn as to so many treasures of the mind that seem lost to us in this whole confusion can be restored Read it and then try to practice it Let us try to be awake

?? From the Editor’s Note‘Krishnamurti’s observations and explorations of modern man’s estate are penetrating and profound yet given with a disarming simplicity and directness To listen to him or to read his thoughts is to face oneself and the world with an astonishing morning freshness’ Anne Marrow Lindber.

As a child Krishnamurti had the bizarre experience of being chosen as the spokespersonmessiah of the Theosophists He later renounced their group and his teachings are centered on mental freedom and non allegiance to a creed or belief system He is anti guru anti mantra anti puja He teaches that the purpose of education is freedom of the mind and people should do what they love and not get trapped in materialism What strikes me as so ironic is that today higher and formal education is tightly bound with materialism since so many people who go to college are a few years' gross income in debt by the time they get a degree So education and freedom seem deeply divided at this point in time Getting a degree means that your freedom is reduced and you are chained by debt How can we reclaim education so that it truly leads to freedom
