These 60 chapters, withtitles like "Solitude Means Freedom", "All Seeking is from Emptiness and Fear",and "Life is an Extraordinarily Beautiful Movement", carry the essence ofKrishnamurti's teaching style and profoundest wisdom. Each one reflects an encounterK had at different times during the sixties and seventies. It opens with apoetic account of the location where the encounter took place, plusoccasionally a description of the seeker that K has met. The chapter then movesback and forth between the seeker and the teacher, giving the reader plenty toreflect upon.This is previously unpublished material. Readers will be captivated by the luminous prose and the piercing insight. The style is enigmaticand poetical but each chapter contains more than enough for the reader toconsider, perhaps as a daily practice. In the styleof Paulo Coelho they have the quality of fables, but the teaching is far more profound and challenging.
