Freedom from the Known — Book

December 24, 2019 § Leave a comment

Some dear friends gifted me Freedom from the Known, edited by Mary Lutyens. I’ve never read anything about Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 — 1986) the great thinker and spiritual teacher, or his teachings. This book is a great introduction to his ideas.

“Can you and I, then, bring about in ourselves without any outside influence, without any persuation, without any fear of punishment — can we bring about in the very essence of our being a total revolution, a psychological mutation, so that we are no longer brutal, violent, competitive, anxious, fearful, greedy, envious and all the rest of the manifestations of our nature which have built up the rotten society in which we live our daily lives.” — J. Krishnamurti.
