Compiled with younger audiences in mind, this book offers an accessible introduction to many themes of Krishnamurti’s work such as Relationships, Love, Work, Fear, and Loneliness. What is the significance of life? What is the purpose of life? Why do you even ask such a question? The challenge, Krishnamurti suggests, is to have a mind that is youthful, flexible, and full of vitality through the course of one’s life. This book offers an exploration of the importance of self-understanding, learning, and intelligence.
In times of rapid scientific and technological advancement, has our understanding of ourselves grown at all? The societies we build and are a part of are still fraught with chaos, confusion, misery and war. Growing up in these times, what are you to do? Is the course of your life determined by patterns of the past? Is there a way to live differently?
What is the significance of life? What is the purpose of life? Why do you ask such a question? You ask this question when, in you, there is chaos, and about you there is confusion, uncertainty. Being uncertain, you want something to be certain. You want a certain purpose in life, a definite goal, because in yourself you are uncertain.
