Education as Service

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986).

116 Pages | Second edition, second reprint 2010 | Hardcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170594826.

” The office of the teacher is the most sacred and the most important to the nation, because it builds the characters of boys and girls, who will be its future citizens. “

So declared the world-renowned spiritual Teacher, J. Krishnamurti, when at the age of seventeen he wrote this book. In his previous valuable little work At the Feet of the Master, written when he was fourteen, he made available to the world the instructions he received from his Master on the four Qualifications for the spiritual path – Love, Discrimination, Desirelessness and Good Conduct. Here, the author shows how they can be applied to the life of the teacher and the student, and be of universal benefit.

From page 113:

” You must trust yourself. You say you know yourself too well. If you feel so, you do not know yourself; you know only the weak outer husk, which has fallen often into the mire. But you – the real you – you are a spark of God’s own fire, and God, who is almighty, is in you, and because of that there is nothing that you cannot do if you will “

Centred Self Without Being Self-Centred – Remembering Krishnamurti

20 Pages | First edition, 2010 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

Jiddhu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986), like all true Rishis and Philosophers, based his saying on seeing. With him the emphasis was always on perception rather than thinking. Almost in every engagement – even in personal conversations this was often the case – sometimes practically in the middle of a sentence he would say, ‘Now listen to the birds‘ or ‘Look at the clouds‘. The mind which had been trapped in arguing or putting two and two together, would thus be invited to look. One was literally brought back to one’s senses.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

“I was particularly moved by the scope, insight, and intimacy of this. I think you say things about Krishnamurti that are very true but not generally understood. I also think you go a long way to dispel some of the inevitable mythology that accrues, in time, to any teacher, mentor, or charismatic ‘religious’ figure. This is especially important as regards Krishnamurti. I realize how much there is in this and how truly wonderful it is.” — Alan Kishbaugh, the Executive Director of the Krishnamurti Foundation of America from 1998-2002 Excerpt: As Krishnamurti often emphasized, only a still mind can be attentive. There is a quality of attention and seeing which can bring about an action in oneself so that a radical change can take place naturally, from the inside. I once asked Krishnamurti about the nature of this attention, what he himself called total attention. I said to him, “What I find in myself is the fluctuation of attention.” He said with emphasis, “What fluctuates is not attention. Only inattention fluctuates.” For him, there was never a compromise with half-measures; it was a matter of total commitment to truth, or nothing at all. As long as one does not have a centered self, one is fragmented and agitated. Then one is inevitably self-centered because vastness, freedom and compassion cannot be available to a fragmented and disordered self. When one is centered, one naturally sees the limitation of the personal or selfish perspective. Then one naturally wishes to be free of the prison of selfishness. Until then, the notion or effort to be free of the self is merely an idea and a fantasy. When one has awakened senses, a clear heart and an alert mind, one can go beyond thought to an intelligence which is not so personal or self-bound.

Krishnamurti and the Wind: A Biography

By Jean Overton Fuller.

300 Pages | First published in 2003 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House London, 2003

Who was Krishnamurti? The Theosophists, basing themselves upon certain ancient India calculations os astronomical cycles, believed a new major spiritual teacher to be due, who would set the keynote of the new age, and that it was their job to find him, care for him until his maturity and prepare the way for him. In Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986), spotted paddling off the beach near their headquarters in Adyar, they believed they had found him. Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) assumed his legal guardianship, and an Order was created for him to head. But on reaching maturity he dissolved the Order and the words he spoke were unlike those they expected to hear. Had he renounced his mission, or had they chosen the wrong boy, or was it a case of new wine bursting old bottles? New people came to hear him. The Dalai Lama, who does not commonly visit, visited Krishnamurti, and was said to ask, ‘Sir what do you believe?’ He does not tell us what answer he received , but says he found Krishnamurti ‘a Nagarjuna’. What did he mean?

From the Chapter ‘The Last Goodbye’ (p. 272):

The last tape of Krishnamurti dated 7 Feb. 1986:

” . . . for seventy years that super-energy – no – that immense energy, immense intelligence, has been using this body. I don’t think people realise what tremendous energy and intelligence went through this body – there’s a twelve cylinder energy . . . and now the body can’t stand any more. Nobody, unless the body has been prepared, very carefully protected . . . can understand what went through this body. Nobody. Don’t anybody pretend. Nobody, I repeat this: nobody amongst us or the public know what went on. I know they don’t. And now, after seventy years, it has come to an end. Not that intelligence and energy . . . it’s somewhere here, every day and especially at night . . .You won’t find another body like this, or that supreme intelligence operating in a body for many hundred years. You won’t see it again. When he goes, it goes.

There is no consciousness left behind of that consciousness, or that state. They’ll all pretend or try to imagine they can get into touch with that. Perhaps they will somewhat if they live the teachings. But nobody had done it. Nobody. And so that’s that. “

The Quotable Krishnamurti

149 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2011

“Truth is a pathless land.” —Jiddu Krishnamurti

The Quotable Krishnamurti is a deeply moving collection of passages from 20th century’s most revered spiritual teacher. Iconoclast, peace activist, philosophical teacher: Jiddu Krishnamurti is arguably the greatest spiritual figure since the Buddha or Christ. This book captures Krishnamurti’s highly prized, sobering realizations, to awaken and transform today’s determined seeker, idealist and realist alike.

auteur: Krishnamurti, J./Epstein, R. (comp.)
ISBN: 9780835608909
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Born in colonial India in 1895, a young Krishnamurti was discovered on a beach by the leaders of the Theosophical Society. Heralded by the society as the long-awaited World Teacher, Krishamurti was adopted and groomed in Great Britain for his messianic destiny. In 1929 Krishnamurti shocked and dismayed his innumerable followers by renouncing his role as World Teacher and disbanding the Order of the Star, formed to honor his prophesied fulfillment. It was at this moment that Krishnamurti firmly protested “truth is a pathless land”, which endures today as his most celebrated speech. For nearly 60 years from that point on Krishnamurti traveled the world over, awakening masses of hungry listeners to the urgent needs of humanity. He implored mankind to live the fully awakened life in order to create a free and peaceful world. Krishnamurti advocated the necessity for meditation, vegetarianism, and environmental conscientiousness in daily living for the true pursuit of liberation and enlightenment. He passionately rebuked violence, decrying both governments and organized religion, insisting they result in conformity, division and fragmentation, rather than harmony. Now for the first time in an alphabetized anthology, The Quotable Krishnamurti arranges by topic this venerated teacher’s core messages, spanning decades of lecturing and authorship. Subject headings include essential topics such as Awareness, Compassion, Forgiveness, Karma and Non-violence. The Quotable Krishnamurti encompasses Krishnamurti’s deepest thoughts, revealing an uncompromising faith in humanity as relevant today as during his first talk nearly 100 years ago.

Het begint bij jou – De weg naar vrede

159 blz. | Paperback | Inspiread, 2010

In Het begint bij jou legt Krishnamurti ons uit dat oorlog en vernietiging voortkomen uit de misplaatste waarde die wij hechten aan ons zelf en aan individualiteit. Dit leidt tot agressie, competitie, hebzucht en conflicten. Als we erkennen dat ons bewustzijn niet individueel is, kunnen we vol wederzijds begrip en compassie samenwerken. Het inzicht dat je verbonden bent met anderen is de eerste stap naar vrede. Die eerste stap moet worden genomen door jou.

auteur: Krishnamurti, J.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Jiddu Krishnamurti groeide vanuit zijn kleine geboortedorp in India uit tot een van de invloedrijkste spirituele denkers van de twintigste eeuw. Hij leert ons dat we om wereldvrede te bereiken allereerst vrede moeten sluiten met onszelf. Geen spiritueel pad, geestelijk leider of persoonlijke of politieke filosofie zal ons hierbij begeleiden. Bij de transformatie van onze geest, een verandering in ons denken, staan we alleen: het is een weg die eenieder voor zichzelf moet bepalen en bewandelen.

Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) is een van de meest revolutionaire denkers van de twintigste eeuw. Ondanks zijn verwerping van alle vormen van spirituele leer en dogmas kreeg hij een enorme aanhang en werd hij een van s werelds meest gelezen geestelijk leiders. Hij heeft meer dan zeventig boeken op zijn naam staan.

Als twee vrienden (Talks Amsterdam 1981)

66 blz. | Paperback | Synthese Uitgeverij, 2010

‘Waarom zijn wij mensen er niet in geslaagd het probleem van menselijke relaties tot een bevredigende oplossing te brengen?’ is een van de eerste vragen waarmee Krishnamurti in Amsterdam begon.

Krishnamurti was een bescheiden man, gebruikte zelden het woordje ‘ik’, duidde zichzelf aan als ‘de spreker’ of als ‘wij’, waarmee hij soms de indruk kon wekken dat hij namens een groep sprak, terwijl dat beslist niet het geval was. Hij wilde met zijn toespraken elk van zijn luisteraars persoonlijk aanspreken, hij wilde een gesprek met ze voeren, een gesprek als tussen twee vrienden, Zoals hij het toen in Amsterdam zelf uitdrukte: ‘als twee vrienden die op een mooie dag op een bank in het park zitten te praten over het leven’.

auteur: Krishnamurti, J.

Maar Krishnamurti was wel een vriend die zijn gesprekspartners onomwonden de waarheid zei. Niet ten onrechte werd hij wel aangeduid als de belangrijkste beeldenstormer van de twintigste eeuw. De beelden die hij bestormde zijn de naar zijn inzicht verstarde denkbeelden en meningen waarmee de mens zich heeft verschanst in een burcht van beperkende regels en systemen, die er vooral op gericht zijn het eigenbelang veilig te stellen.

The real story of Krishnamurti’s inner life is shown to have critical implications for our understanding of Krishnamurti’s life and ideas and for our views of Theosophy, Buddhism, the teachings of Gurdjieff — indeed, the entirety of contemporary spiritual thought.

Aryel Sanat’s meticulously researched and cogently argued exploration of Krishnamurti’s inner life and experiences explodes a number of popular myths about Krishnamurti, particularly that he denied the existence of the Theosophical Masters and disdained the esoteric side of the spiritual path. Rather, Sanat persuasively demonstrates, Krishnamurti had a rich and intense esoteric life. Moreover, the truths of the Ancient Wisdom, as revealed through the Masters, were a reality to Krishnamurti every day of his life, from his boyhood until his death. Aryel Sanat has lectured on and written about Krishnamurti and related subjects for thirty years. In addition to his work as an editor and translator, he has taught philosophy, logic, and humanities at the University of Miami.

Het innerlijke leven van Krishnamurti

413 blz. | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2005

Krishnamurti’s innerlijke leven is een raadsel, niet in de laatste plaats doordat hij het vijfdecennia lang geheim heeft gehouden

Toen Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) veertien jaar oud was, riepen theosofen hem uit tot de nieuwe messias en zij brachten hem in contact met de eeuwige wijsheid. Krishnamurti was opgevoed in Groot Brittannië en hij wijdde zijn leven aan de verspreiding van zijn inzichten over de gehele wereld. Hij behoort inderdaad tot de grootste spirituele leiders van de twintigste eeuw.

auteur: Sanat, A.
ISBN: 9789061750857
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Onder de zeer velen die hij beïnvloedde bevinden zich de Dalai Lama, Joseph Campbell, Deepak Chopra, Henry Miller en Aldous Huxley. Maar Krishnamurti was een revolutionair in diepste zin. Meer dan zestig jaar schuwde hij geloofssystemen en vooronderstellingen van welke aard ook, inclusief de esoterische beginselen van de Theosofie.

Maar persoonlijk?

Aryel Sanat onthult de rijke esoterische gebeurtenissen van K’s innerlijke leven. Persoonlijk heeft Krishnamurti nooit het bestaan van zijn ‘meesters’ ontkend, noch het feit dat hij het voertuig voor de Heer Maitreya of de Christus zou zijn. Deze innerlijke realiteiten vormden zelfs iedere dag een onderdeel van zijn volwassen leven en waren nauw verbonden met het werk dat hij deed.

ARYEL SANAT (Miguel Angel Sanabria) heeft sinds 1964 over Krishnamurti onderwezen en geschreven. Hij is universitair hoofddocent in de filosofie en godsdienst aan de Amerikaanse Universiteit in Washington. Hij woont in Arlington, Virginia.

Why are You being Educated? – Talks at Indian Universities

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986).

132 Pages | First edition 2002, reprinted in 2004 | Softcover | Krishnamurti Foundation, India | ISBN: 8187326395.

This book consists of six talks, that Krishnamurti gave at Indian Universities of Technology between 1969 – 1984.

Krishnamurti’s chief concern here is to awaken students to the fact that the pursuit of knowledge does not liberate man from his ignorance of himself. While knowledge is indispensable, it also creates the illusion that we have the intelligence to meet the challenges of life. This makes us neglect the vast and subtle field of the human psyche. This perspective comes through clearly in these talks, which therefore have significance not just for the young, but also for parents, teachers, and all those interested in the deeper issues of life.

From page 39:

” So if we come back to the fundamental question: what is ignorance? Ignorance, is this unawareness of the whole structure of and nature of the mind, the brain and of all its movement; that is the very essence of ignorance. You learn from books and from your professors, pass examinations, get a few degrees and get a job – that is nothing. That is necessary in this mad world, but to be totally unaware of the extraordinary movement, the beauty, the subtlety, the quickness of all that inward movement, to be unconscious, to be unaware of it is not only ignorance; it brings its own destruction. “

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Sage, philosopher and thinker, he illumined the lives of millions the world over – intellectuals and laymen, young and old. Breaking away from all organized religions and denying his role as a Guru, he spelt out his mission: to set man absolutely and unconditionally free. He travelled round the world till the age of 90 giving talks, writing, holding discussions. He talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday life; the problems of living in modern society, the individual’s search for security, and the need for human beings to free themselves from from their inner burdens of violence, fear and sorrow. Born on 11th May 1895 as the eighth child of a pious couple in the small town of Madanapalle in Andhra Pradesh, Krishnamurti was adopted at the age of 14 by Annie Besant, the President of the Theosophical Society, and was brought up and groomed to be the World Teacher. In 1929, however, he renounced that role and dissolved The Order of the Star – a large world-wide organization that had been built up around him to fulfill that mission. This action was the culmination of the deep spiritual awakening undergone by him and his insight that religious organizations cannot lead human beings to truth.

The Nature of the New Mind

276 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 2003

Addressing large international audiences in different parts of the world, Krishnamurti points out that the present crisis is not just what we perceive outwardly in society; it really lies in the unconscious, deep within oneself. So what is required is not more knowledge or more collective action, but a totally new mind. And that is needed, says Krishnamurti, ‘to deal not only with the everlasting but also with the immediate problems of existence’. It is important to see the urgency of having such a mind now and not wait for time to bring it about.

224 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 2004

‘The function of education is to bring about a release of energy in the pursuit of goodness, truth, or God, which in turn makes the individual a true human being and therefore the right kind of citizen.’

‘It is also our problem to find out what God is, because that is the very foundation of our life. A house cannot stand for long without a proper foundation, and all the cunning inventions of man will be meaningless if we are not seeking out what is God or truth.’

Mind Without Measure – Talks in India 1982-83

216 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation, 2005

From very ancient times, human beings have been taught to regard thought as the most powerful and perhaps the only instrument they have for dealing with life. Krishnamurti shatters this dearly held notion by declaring that the instrument of thought produces havoc within individuals and in the world at large. Thought, no doubt, has helped man to progress in functional areas, and it has its rightful place there. But in the psychological realm, the solutions it offers only create more problems.

auteur: Krishnamurti, J.
ISBN: 8187326514
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Developing this theme in this book, Krishnamurti shows how the instrument of thought is inadequate in tackling the basic emotions that generally underlie individual and collective action – violence, hurt, conflict, insecurity, pleasure, fear, sorrow and so on. He explains, in different contexts, how thought itself creates and sustains these problems. ‘So is there a new instrument totally different from thought’, he asks in these series of talks given in New Delhi, Calcutta, Madras and Bombay between October 1982 and January 1983.

Krishnamurti on Love and Loneliness

153 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 2004

Another volume in the series of ‘Theme books’, this is a compelling investigation of our intimate relationships with ourselves, others, and society. Krishnamurti suggests that ‘true relationship’ can come into being only when there is self-knowledge of the conditions which divide and isolate individuals and groups.

Krishnamurti on Freedom

148 pages | Paperback | Krishnamurti Foundation India, 2004

On Freedom is one of a series of theme books compiled from the talks, writings, and dialogues of J. Krishnamurti. Some of the other titles in this series are On God, On Relationship, On Fear, On Living Dying and On Love and Loneliness.

‘To me, freedom is absolutely necessary-freedom at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end-and that freedom is denied when I carry a problem over to the next day. This means that I have not only to discover how the problem arises, but also how to end it completely, surgically, so that there is no repetition, no carrying over of the problem, no feeling that I will think about it and find the answer tomorrow. If I carry the problem over to the next day, I have provided the soil in which the problem takes root, and then the pruning of that problem becomes still another problem.’

Krishnamurti on Fear

122 pages | Paperback | HarperCollins Publishers, 1995

On Fear is a collection of Krishnamurti’s most profound observations and thoughts on how fear and dependence affect our lives and prevent us from seeing our true selves. Among the many questions Krishnamurti addresses in these remarkable teachings are: How can a mind that is afraid love? and What can a mind that depends on attachment know of joy? He points out that the voice of fear makes the mind dull and insensitive, and argues that the roots of hidden fears, which limit us and from which we constantly seek escape, cannot be discovered through analysis of the past. Questioning whether the exercise of will can eliminate the debilitating effects of fear, he suggests, instead, that only a fundamental realization of the root of all fear can free our minds.

A Flame of Learning – Krishnamurti withTeachers

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986).

205 Pages | Copyright 1993 | Softcover | Mirananda, Den Haag | ISBN: 9062718299.

Many educators and parents have found Krishnamurti’s insights into the human condition and the nature of learning especially relevant to the education of children. For them and for others, who wish to live sanely and wisely in a world of growing confusion and who wish their children to do the same, this book will be a valued addition to his previous works.

In discussions with teachers at Brockwood Park School, which he founded in England in 1969, Krishnamurti assumes the role of a person coming to teach in such as school. Frankly and directly, he explores the new teacher’s relationship with the school, with his colleagues and especially with students, questioning the nature of freedom and authority, the place of motive and self-interest, the source of fear and violence, and the possiblity of awakening intelligence and sensitivity to order. In the course of the exploration, they go into the nature of investigation itself, and consider the necessity for the clarity of observation and communication.

Above all, Krishnamurti challenges the teachers – and the reader – to look at the need for radical psychological change, and to consider the possibility of such change in all human beings.

” My concern . . . is to awaken this intelligence in my students, so that they will be free. “

Krishnamurti on Education

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986).

158 Pages | First published in 1954, this is the 1998 edition | Softcover | Krishnamurti Foundation, India | ISBN: 818732600X.

This book is the outcome of talks and discussions held by Krishnamurti with the students and teachers of Rishi Valley School in Andhra Pradesh and Rajghat Besant School in Varanasi. Krishnamurti regards education as of prime significance in the communication of that which is central to the transformation of the human mind and the creation of a new culture. As the topics in these stimulating talks and discussions reveal, he questions the very roots of our culture so that a comprehensive view on education emerges.

Krishnamurti’s challenge is addressed not only to the structure of education, but to the very nature and quality of man’s mind and life. Unlike all other attempts to salvage or suggest alternatives to the educational system, his approach breaks through the frontiers of particular cultures and establishes an entirely new set of values. To Krishnamurti, a new mind is possible only when the religious spirit and the scientific attitude form part of the same consciousness. While he gives emphasis to the cultivation of the intellect, he lays far greater stress on a heightened critical awareness of the inner and outer world.

From page 9:

” If you begin to think, to observe, to learn, not from books, but learn for yourself by watching, listening to everything that is happening around you, you will grow up to be a different human being. One who cares, who has affection, who loves people. Perhaps if you live that way, you might find a truly religious life. “

Drie Wegen, één Pad

223 blz. | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2006

Deze bundel omvat drie standaardwerken op het gebied van spirituele ontwikkeling: De Stem van de Stilte, Licht op het Pad en Aan de Voeten van de Meester. Gidsen voor het spirituele pad.

auteur: Blavatsky, H.P./Collins, M./Alcyone (Krishnamurti, J.)
ISBN: 9789061750888
Additional DescriptionMore Details

De waarde van de verschijning van deze drie werken in de moderne wereld in de negentiende, vroeg twintigste eeuw valt niet eenvoudig te omschrijven. Met gemak kan evenwel worden gezegd dat zij mede aan de basis hebben gestaan van al wat men vandaag weet over de spirituele reis, het Pad, de verlichting, of de ultieme bevrijding uit het bestaan van aardse beperkingen. Zij geven lessen over ethiek, over de universeel geldende wet van compassie, over karma – of de wet van evenwicht – over hoe te handelen in onze zoektocht naar spiritualiteit. Hun doel beperkt zich niet tot een algemeen gevoel van welzijn, maar is uiteindelijk om een omvattend beeld te geven van de heiligheid van het leven en een helpende hand te zijn voor de innerlijke mens die worstelt om zijn ware gedaante aan de wereld te tonen.
