Newest Book: Think on these Things | Bilingual | Page: 223 | 130 baht

Think on These Things Published previously as This Matter of Culture (Think on These Things) Chosen by Parabola magazine as ‘one of the hundred best spiritual books of the century’. An excellent introduction to Krishnamurti’s teachings for the young and the old.

Consisting of Krishnamurti’s talks and discussions with students, teachers, and parents in India, it has been translated into the major languages of the world. Here Krishnamurti states, in unmistakable terms, that the function of education is not different from the purpose of human life itself:

‘The function of education is to bring about a release of energy in the pursuit of goodness, truth, or God, which in turn makes the individual a true human being and therefore the right kind of citizen…As a river creates the banks which hold it, so the energy which seeks truth creates its own discipline without any form of imposition, and as the river finds the sea, so that energy finds its own freedom.’

‘It is also our problem to find out what God is, because that is the very foundation of our life. A house cannot stand for long without a proper foundation, and all the cunning inventions of man will be meaningless if we are not seeking out what is God or truth.’

 

The Urgency of Change 2 | Bilingual | 2010 | 190 baht
“A man who is passionate about the world and the necessity for change, must be free from political activity, religious conformity and tradition – which means, free from the weight of time, free from burden of the past, free from all the action of will; this is the new human being. This is the social, psychological, and even the potitical revolution.”

 

 

 

Awareness sans Frontiers (New Cover) | Bilingual | 2007 | 150 baht 
“Man has lived with suffering through centuries upon centuries and apparently has never been able to end it. It is one of our accustomed ways of bearing with something unpleasant, something that gives us great pain and never finding a solution for it. There are various ways of suffering – not only loss of those whom you think you love through death but suffering is also losing a position. It is poverty, injustice, sense of incompleteness in oneself, the utter state of ignorance that man lives in though he has accumulated vast knowledge about the heavens and earth and of matter of technology.

So we live with suffering and we have accepted it. We have never said: can it end?

 

The Future of Humanity | Bilingual | 2006 | 200 baht 
Krishnamurti: Self-knowledge is important, but if I take time to understand myself, I will understand myself eventually by examination, analysis, by watching my whole relationship with others and so on – all that involves time. And I say there is another way of looking at the whole thing without time. Which is, when the observer is the observed.

In these dialogues Krishnamurti and physicist David Bohm explore the prospects for the continued existence of our world, given our immense capacity for self-destruction.

They examine such age-old problems as the trap of social conditioning, the relationship of self and community, and the nature of consciousness. Beginning with the question “What is the future of humanity?“, they point out that whole modern technology is often blamed for having created immense havoc, the root problem-the destructive human tendencies-has existed for all of recorded time. They assert that the individual holds the key to averting disaster.

Krishnamurti proposes no answer. Rather, he reveals through these dialogues how individuals can begin to understand their own thinking about the fundmental questions of human existence.

 

Education and Significance of Life | Bilingual | 2005 | 100 baht 
“The purpose of education is to cultivate right relationship, not only between individuals but also between the individual and society; and that is why it is essential that education should, abovve all, help the individual to understand his own psychological process… When we are young, fear is instilled into most of us both at home and at school. Neither parents not teachers have the patience, the time or the wisdom to dispel the instinctive fears of childhood, which, as we grow up, dominate our attitudes and judgement and create a great many problems. The right kind if education must take into consideration this question of fear, because fear warps our whole outlook on life. to be without fear is the beginning of wisdom, and only the right kind of education can bring about the freedom from fear in which alone there is deep and creative intelligence.”

Freedom from the Known (New Cover) | Bilingual | 2005 | 50 baht 
Ever since it was first published “อิสรภาพเกิดขึ้นเมื่อคุณไม่รู้” has rightly been regarded as a primer on Krishnamurti’s teaching. In this book, we have for the first time a synthesis of what Krishnamurti has to say about the human predicament and the eternal problems of living.

It was Krishnamurti himself who asked Mary Lutyens, a life-long friend and biographer, to compile this book for him and who suggested this title for it. The words are his, unaltered, but the arrangement is hers and is designed for the reader’s bette understanding. This important work is being made available as a special offer from The Quest Foundation at a heavily subsided price as a part of its efforts to reach the benefit of these words to a wide section of Thai readers.

The donor whose gracious gesture made the subsidy possible has requested anonymity.

Conversations | Bilingual | 2004 | 140 baht 
In this compilation of thirteen conversations, Krishnamurti engages with a wide and varied range of questions and issues related to the problems of living.

In each instance, Krishnamurti gently but firmly steers the questioner to confront and unravel the fundamental causes of misery, confusiob and conflict in life. In the process, the reader shares the questioner’s confusion as well as the delight of insight and discovert the enquiry brings.

Individual & Society 1 | Bilingual | 2004 | 130 baht
In ‘Individual and Society 1‘ Krishnamurti bringd into sharp focus the fact that we are deeply entrenched in conditioning from which it is imperative and necessary to ungerdo a revolution. While doing so, he brings us to the interface of our dual existence as individuals and members of society:
1. What is our response to disintegrating society?
2. How can one bring about a transformation in oneself and in society>
3. What is true individuality?

In raising questions such as these, Krishnamurti invites us to examine anew our relationship as human beings to ourselves and to each other.

Individual & Society 2 | Bilingual | 2004 | 180 baht
“In ‘Individual & Society 2‘ Krishnamurti asks if it is ever possible for us to free ourselves of this conditioning that, by its very nature, has brought our world to the brink of disaster. In doing so, he provides valuable pointers to that possibility and urges us to find it out for ourselves…

I say it can be – which is not for you to accept or reject. It may be true, or it may be my opinion, my fancy, my illusion. And you can not base your life on somebody else’s discovery, or on his illusion, his fancy, or on a mere idea. You have to find out.

Can this Sorrow ever End? | Bilingual | 2004 | 120 baht
In spite of his many years of giving public talks in the United States, Krishnamurti had not spoken in Washington, D.C. When he agreed to do so in April 1985, it was in a sense to a new audience, one to which in the compression of only two talks he wished to convey as much of his teaching as possible.

On both days the hall was filled with a varied, seriously interested audience and as Krishnamurti spoke there seemed an intangible response, a quality in which the listener joined in his communication. Krishnamurti felt it and although there were to be other talks before his death tem months later, on those two days in April 1985, at the age of ninety, Krishnamurti spoke from the summit of his life and teaching.

The Revolution from Within 2 | Bilingual | 2004 | 200 baht 
The Revolution from Withinconsists of Public Talks Krishnamurti gave between 1952 and 1959.
Here, the focus is primarily, if not solely, on a radical change in the mind and heart of every human being. What brings about such as change is not knowledge or reason, not new ideas or ideals, or the pursuit of some religious goals; nor does it come about through effort and will. It is only in understanding ourselves completely that the transformation takes place.

However, throughout these talks, Krishnamurti seems to be suggesting that this attempt to change oneself is not a mere psychological exercise but a religious act; it is not just a matter of digging into oneself endlessly, but also remaining open to that which he called Truth or Reality. “Transformation is not brought about by the mind. Transformation…is in the hands of Reality, not within the sphere of the mind,” he says.

The Urgency of Change 1 | Bilingual | 2003 | 170 baht
“Be concerned with radical change, with total revolution. The only revolution is the revolution between man and man, between human beings. That is our only concern. In this revolution there are no blueprints, no ideologies, no conceptual utopias. We must take the fact of actual relationship between men and change that radically. That is the real thing.”

Dying to a Thousand Yesterdays | Bilingual | 2002 | 120 baht
“Is it possible to die every day and not wait for the ultimate death, to die to everything that you have known? Try it and you will se how extraordinarily subtle and vital it becomes, how your mind is made new, fresh. That which has an ending alone has a renewal, not the mind which continues, which knows a thousand yesterdays.”

The Silent Mind | Bilingual | 2002 | 120 baht
“The lives of most of us are pretty ugly, sordid, miserable, petty. Our existence is a series of conflicts, contradictions, a precess of struggle, pain, fleeting joy, momentary satisfaction. We are bound by so many adjustments, conformities, patterns, and there is never a moment of freedom, never a sense of complete being. There is always frustration, because there is always the seeking to fulfill. We have no tranquility of mind, but are always tortured by various demands. So, to understand all these problems and go beyong ythem, it is surely necessary that we begin by understanding the nature of knowledge and the process of the mind.”

The Mirror of Relationship | Bilingual | 2002 | 130 baht
“What do we mean by the word ‘relationship’? Are we ever related to anyone, or is the relationship between two images which we have created about each other? I have an image about you and you have an image about me. I have an image about you as my wife or husband, or whatever it is, and you am image about me also. The relationship is between these two images and nothing else. To have relationship with another is only possible when there is no image. When I can look at you and you can look at me, without the image of memory, of insults and all the rest, then there is a relationship…

To be related means to be in contact. Contact must be something direct, not between two images. It requires a great deal of attention, an awareness, to look at another without the image which I have about that person, the image being my memories of that person, how he has insulted me, pleased me, given me pleasure, this or that. Only when there are no images between the two is there a relationship.”

The End of Search | Bilingual | 2002 | 135 baht
“Most of us are seeking some kind of fulfillment. Being discontented, we want to find contentment – either in some relationship, or by fulfilling certain capacities, or by searching for some kind of action that will be completely satisfying. Or, if we are not of that disposition, then we generally seek what we think is truth, God, and so on. Most of us are seeking, searching; and if we could each find out for ourselves what it is that we are seeking, and why we seek, I think it would reveal a great deal. Being discontented with ourselves, with our environment, with our activities, our particular job, most of us want a better job, a better position, a better understanding, wider activities, a more satisfying philosophy, a capacity that will be entirely gratifying. Outwardly that is what we want; and when that does not satisfy us we go a little deeper, we pursue philosophy, go in for reform, gather together in various groups to discuss, and so on; and still there is discontent

So, is it possible for the mind to be free of all search?”

Facing Fact as Fact | Bilingual | 2002 | 120 baht
“Why have I, who have lived forty, fifty, sixty, or whatever number of years it is that one has lived – why have I gathered this storehouseful – of what I think, what I feel, what I am, what I should be, this accumulation of experience, knowledge? And if I had not done that, what would happen? If I had no concept about myself, what would happen to me? I would be lost, wouldn’t I? I would be uncertain, terribly frightened of life. So I build an image, a myth, a concept, a conclusion about myself, meaningless, fearful…

Now what happens when I am aware of the fact that I have built an image of myself – as aware of it as I am of hunger?”

That Benediction is where you are | Bilingual | 2002 | 135 baht
“Now, just a minute. The speaker has asked you this question: What is the cause of fear? How do you listen to it? That question has a vitality of its own, an energy of its own. It is a very serious question, not merely an intellectual one. If you remain with the question and not try to find answer, the question itself begins to unfold…

So will you put this question to yourself and not expect an answer? Put the question. You have planted a seed in the earth, and if the seed is alive it will go through concrete. Haven’t you seena blade of grass in the pavement? What extraordinaliry vitality that balde of grass has to break through the heavy cement! In the same way, if you put this question to yourself and hold it, then you will see the cause.”
