For over thirty years, a group of people in India from various disciplines, backgrounds and pursuits, have gathered round J. Krishnamurti. Together they have undertaken through the probing of dialogue the investigation of the structure and nature of man's mind and consciousness and the energies which lie dormant within him. "You cannot ascend through knowledge," says Krishnamurti, it is necessary "to have an insight, to grasp the thing instantly." In the course of the discussions fundamental questions are raised which are the central issues, psychological and spiritual, which face mankind. For those already familiar with Krishnamurti's ideas, the explorations and careful probing which is here undertaken will help to elucidate many important points, such as what he means by self-knowledge, by observing "without the observer", duality and the holistic state, and the central root of fear. Others, who read him for the first time will be struck by the clarity of the insights and the disturbing and challenging message they initiate. These discussions took place in India.
