To Be Human presents Krishnamurti’s radical vision of life in a new way. At the heart of this extraordinary collection are passages from the great teacher’s talks that amplify and clarify the nature of truth and those obstacles that often prevent us from seeing it.
Besides presenting the core of Krishnamurti’s message, the book alerts the reader to his innovative use of language, the ways in which he would use “old words with new interpretations,” then gives practical examples, showing that we can clarify our understanding of life itself-and how we can act on this new understanding.
The splendid introduction by David Skitt discusses Krishnamurti’s philosophy as a guide to knowledge and experience, the roles knowledge and experience should play in our lives, and the times when it is best to cast them aside and “look and act anew.”
To Be Human is more than just a book; it’s an invitation to elevate your consciousness, to contemplate life’s mysteries, and to embark on a path of self-discovery. Whether you’re a seasoned follower of Krishnamurti’s teachings or a newcomer seeking wisdom, this book promises to be a source of guidance, inspiration, and transformation. Embrace its pages and unlock the profound potential of being human.
