Krishnamurti for Beginners is an introduction to the teachings of J. Krishnamurti, meant primarily for readers unacquainted with his work. The problems of daily living that confront every human being and Krishnamurti's original approach to them form the basis of the selections. Krishnamurti held that truth is beyond the constructions of the human mind, beyond 'the known, formulated or imagined', and that in the search for truth 'the first step is the last step'. In the sense that new beginnings held a special meaning for Krishnamurti, all are beginners on the journey of life. And in this sense, the present volume is meant for all. Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) was born in Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh. As a boy, he was 'discovered' by the leaders of the Theosophical Society, who proclaimed him to be the future World Teacher. However, in 1929, he disband-ed the huge organization that had been built around him, and declared that his intention was not to found new religions, but to 'set man absolutely, unconditionally free'. From then on, for more than half a century, he travelled ceaselessly all over the world giving talks and holding dialogues, not as a guru but as a lover of truth. His teach-ings are available in a vast collection of books and tape recordings.
