Truth and Actuality – Talks and Dialogues (1991 Edition)

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986).

171 Pages | Published in 1977, first published in Gollancz Paperbacks 1985; this edition was first published in 1991 | Softcover | Victor Gollancz Ltd., London | ISBN: 0575037652.

Truth and Actuality consists of both talks and dialogues by J. Krishnamurti. It opens with three discussions taken from a longer series with the eminent theoretical physicist Dr. David Bohm; these deal with the problem of truth, the actuality in which we live as perceived by the senses, reality as appears to our consciousness, and the relationship between them.

In the main part of the book, Krishnamurti considers how man’s consciousness is made up of all sorts of misconceptions about the ‘me’, or the ego centre; he also points out how solidly conditioned it is. ‘You cannot go through reality to come to truth; you must understand the limitation of reality, which is the whole process of thought’, he says. The book ends with some questions and answers which throw light on certain issues previously touched upon.

From Chapter 9 – ‘The Sacred, Religion, Meditation’ (p. 144 & 145):

” The many religions throughout the world have said that there is an enduring, everlasting truth, but the mere assertion of truth has little significance. One has to discover it for oneself, not theoretically, intellectually or sentimentally, but actually find out if one can live in a world that is completely truthful. We mean by religion the gathering together of all energy to investigate into something: to investigate if there is anything sacred. That is the meaning we are giving it, not the religion of belief, dogma, tradition or rituals with their hierarchical outlook. But we are using the word ‘religion’ in the sense: to gather together all energy, which will then be capable of investigating if there is a truth, which is not controlled, shaped, or polluted by thought. “

How The World Can Be The Way It Is

By Steve Hagen.

343 Pages | A Quest Original, First Edition 1995 | Hardcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607194.

An Inquiry for the New Millennium into Science, Philosophy, and Perception. 

In this wise and original book, science writer and Zen priest Steve Hagen helps us learn to perceive the world directly – as it is, not merely as we conceive it to be. Using a provocative mix of examples from quantum physics and philosophy as well as Zen teaching stories, Hagen helps us see ourselves and the world with the clarity and wisdom born of a new innocence. When we are able to just see, we are able to live a life of beauty, awareness and Truth, in a world in which everything is utterly immediate and alive.

From page 1:

” All phenomena, existing and apparent,
Are ever transient, changing and unstable;
But more especially the worldly life
Hath no Reality, no permanent gain.
And so, instead of doing work that’s profitless,
The Truth Divine I’ll seek.
To the Dragkar-Taso Cave I’ll go,
to practice meditation. “
