preface by David Skitt; foreword by Aldous Huxley; "The central fact of all Krishnamurti's teachings, as Aldous Huxley stresses in his foreword, is that for each individual reader the central human problem can be solved in only one way - for and by himself; that it is through self-knowledge, not through belief in someone else's symbols, that a man comes to the eternal reality, in which his being is grounded. What, then, is it that Krishnamurti offers? Not self-discipline; not prayer; not yoga. There is, Krishnamurti claims, a transcendent spontaneity of life, a 'creative Reality' as he calls it, which reveals itself as immanent only when the perceiver's mind is in a state of 'alert passivity', of 'choiceless awareness'. We cannot imagine a book more needed at the present time. Krishnamurti is, in fact, asking for sanity in a world in which most of us are at least mad nor' nor' east. If his voice can penetrate, he will do more than most people to save us from spiritual disaster."; a clean copy. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 328 pages.
