Authors You Need to Read Before Being Reincarnated: J. Krishnamurti

a.k.a., Unoppressive Non-Imperialist Essentials

In case you haven't heard, our new series, "Authors You Need to Read Before Being Reincarnated," features a list of select authors whom we believe are essential to the unoppressive, non-imperialistic life.

Last week, Alan Watts was featured as our first author for enlightenment. Today, we're excited to feature three works by Jiddu Krishnamurti.

J. Krishnamurti was the ultimate non-guru that every guru had to acknowledge, however reluctantly or joyfully. If it were up to him, we would all be completely free of any and every notion that ever interfered with our chance to be unoppressed and non-imperialistic. Every messiah that ever lived is saying to him- or herself, "Why didn't I think of that?"

J. Krishnamurti, one of the most beloved and renowned religious teachers of the twentieth century, often taught his students that they must look at the state of the world, with all its violence and conflict, if they are ever to understand themselves. To turn away from world events was for him not to be alive to what life has to teach.

Facing a World in Crisis presents a selection of talks that Krishnamurti gave on how to live in and respond to troubling and uncertain times. His message of personal responsibility and the importance of connecting with the broader world is presented in a nonsectarian and nonpolitical way. Direct and ultimately life-affirming, Facing a World in Crisis will resonate with readers today who are looking for a new way to understand and find hope in challenging times.

J. Krishnamurti was one of the most influential and widely known spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Here, he inquires with the reader into how remembering and dwelling on past events, both pleasurable and painful, give us a false sense of continuity, causing us to suffer. His instruction is to be attentive and clear in our perceptions and to meet the challenges of life directly in each new moment.
