Teens learn for themselves about their relationship to the self, to each other, family, work, society, the world, and the meaning and purpose of life. Through paying attention rather than accepting the authority of their conditioning, they can find out for themselves about love, sex, marriage, the meaning of work, money, ambition and competition and, by changing the violence in themselves, they can change the world.

See for yourself that:

  • Each fear, anger, escape into drugs multiplied by six billion creates the world.
  • If we end our own mental pain, we can affect the pain of the world.
  • We are taught skills to make a living, not in living itself.
  • The purpose of life and its joys is discovered by paying attention to what you think, do and feel in daily life.

Krishnamurti spoke to young people all over the world and founded schools in California, England and India. 'When one is young', he said, 'one must be revolutionary, not merely in revolt . . . to be psychologically revolutionary means non-acceptance of any pattern'.

From Chapter 3 - 'Thought, the Thinker and the Prison of the Self' (p. 33):

Thought Can Never Be Free

" So we must understand very clearly that our thinking is the response of memory, and memory is mechanistic. Knowledge is ever incomplete, and all thinking born of knowledge is limited, partial, never free. So there is no freedom of thought. But we can begin to discover a freedom, which is not a process of thought, and in which the mind is simply aware of all its conflicts and of all the influences impinging on it. "
