"It (violence) is like a stone dropped in a lake: the waves spread and spread, at the centre is the 'me'. As long as the 'me' survives in any form, very subtly or grossly, there must be violence. The theme of violence and Krishnamurti's approach to it are as relevant today as they were when he spoke in 1970 to vast audiences. In discussing the nature of violence, Krishnamurti also unravels the other psychological factors, such as hurt, competition, insecurity and fear, which are closely related to violence. He shows us a way of looking at the fact of violence directly, without condemning, suppressing, or analysing it, and thus going beyond it. In doing so, he calls for a fundamental change in the human psyche, which is the mark of a truly religious mind." Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 175 pages.
