Description
Back of the Book

On Relationship is one of a series of theme books put together from the talks and writings of J. Krishnamurti,

In 1950, Krishnamurti said: ‘If we are concerned with our own lives, if we understand our relationship with others, we will have created a new society; otherwise we will but perpetuate the present chaotic mess and confusion.’

Providing a far-reaching basis for solving many of the world’s crises, this book brings together Krishnamurti’smost essential teachings on the individual’s relationship to other people, to society, and to life itself. The renowned teacher makes it clear that the way we handle personal crises and relationships links us to the problems of all people and has a larger, global meaning. Ending the causes of war, for instance, cannot start without our seeing the need for real respect within the family and for all others.

 

Foreword

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born in India in 1895 and, at the age of thirteen, was taken up by the Theosophical Society, which considered him to be the vehicle for the “world teacher” whose advent it had been proclaiming. Krishnamurti was soon to emerge as a powerful, uncompromising, and unclassifiable teacher, whose talks handwritings were not linked to any specific religion and were of neither the East nor the West but for the whole world. Firmly repudiating the messianic image, in 19Z9 he dramatically dissolved thelarge and monied organization that had been built around him and declared truth to be “a pathless land,” which could not be approached by any formalized religion, philosophy, or sect.

For the rest of his life Krishnamurti insistently rejected the gum status that others tried to foist upon him. He continued to attract large audiences throughout the world but claimed no authority, wanted no disciples, and spoke always as one individual to another. At the core of his teaching was the realization that fundamental changes in society can be brought about only by a transformation of individual consciousness. The need for self-knowledge and understanding of the restrictive, separative influences of religious and nationalistic conditionings was constantly stressed.Krishnamurti pointed always to the urgent need for openness, for that “vast space in the brain in which there is unimaginable energy.” This seems to have been the wellspring of his own creativity and the key to his catalytic impact on such a wide variety of people.

He continued to speak all over the world until he died in 1986 at the age of ninety. His talks and dialogues, journals and let- ten have been collected into more than sixty books. From that vast body of teachings this series of theme books has been compiled. Each book focuses on an issue that has particular relevance to and urgency in our daily lives.
