Krishnamu This book is the outcome of talks and discussions held in India by J. Krishnamurti with the students and teachers of schools at Rishi Valley School in Andhra Pradesh and Rajghat School at Varanasi. These centres are run by the Krishnamurti Foundation India, which was set up to create a milieu where the teachings of Krishnamurti could be communicated to the child. Krishnamurti regards education as of prime significance in the communication of that which is central to the transformation of the human mind and the creation of a new culture. Such a fundamental transformation takes place when the child, while being trained in various skills and disciplines, is also given the capacity to be awake to the processes of his own thinking, feeling and action. This alertness makes him self-critical and observant and thus establishes an integrity of perception, discrimination and action, crucial to the maturing within him of a right relationship to man, to nature and to the tools man creates.

    Ground-breaking book for me personally - expressed things I've thought about how the world is but which seem taboo to say, and introduced me to other new concepts, and things like meditation, how violence happens and not just the obvious physical violence either. I'd recommend this because I found it more practical and easier to understand than 'Freedom From The Known' mainly because Krishnamurti is explaining his philosophy and spiritual practice to students.

    "¿Cómo educan ustedes a un niño para que sea capaz de afrontar la vida sin ajustarse meramente a los patrones establecidos de la sociedad, a determinadas pautas de conducta. De modo que pueda ir mucho más lejos y profundizar mucho más en el problema total de la existencia?" El tema de la educación siempre ha sido todo un tema de investigación, debate, análisis y ha tenido diferentes opiniones de como debería de ser, a lo largo del tiempo. Aquí Krishnamurti habla de cómo esta educación que necesit "¿Cómo educan ustedes a un niño para que sea capaz de afrontar la vida sin ajustarse meramente a los patrones establecidos de la sociedad, a determinadas pautas de conducta. De modo que pueda ir mucho más lejos y profundizar mucho más en el problema total de la existencia?" El tema de la educación siempre ha sido todo un tema de investigación, debate, análisis y ha tenido diferentes opiniones de como debería de ser, a lo largo del tiempo. Aquí Krishnamurti habla de cómo esta educación que necesita realmente un niño, no proviene solamente de estudios, practicas y disciplinas académicas, pues de esta manera, no ocurriría una transformación en él y sólo lo formaríamos para que entre en los moldes ya establecidos de la sociedad. Se le debe pues capacitar para que este despierto a los procesos de su propio pensar, sentir y actuar. Que sea autocritico, observador, que integre una línea de percepción, discernimiento y acción para que forme una relación madura con el hombre, la vida, la naturaleza y con las herramientas que el mismo hombre produce. Que indague y deje florecer también sus propios pensamientos. La primera parte lo aborda partiendo de una conversación con los estudiantes, la cuál disfrute muchísimo, pues cuestiona las misma preguntas que ellos tienen sobre su percepción de la educación. Dice textualmente: "La educación no es un mero pasar los exámenes, conseguir un título y un empleo, casarse y establecerse, sino también saber escuchar a los pájaros, ver el cielo, la extraordinaria belleza de un árbol, la forma de las colinas; es sentir todo eso, estar directamente en contacto con ello." La segunda parte incluye una conversación con los maestros, es mucho más profunda, habla sobre el rol de educadores que tienen, lo importante que es su propia perspectiva, auto critica y análisis con respecto a la vida, la educación, la influencia y relación que obviamente tienen con los niños. Además en ambas partes Kishnamurti también hace énfasis en el tema de la meditación y en lo personal, me encantó leer su percepción y fueron de las parte que más resonaron en mí. Definitivamente este libro tendrá muchísimas relecturas de mi parte en el futuro, porque en esta primera lectura, lo disfrute y analicé muchas de las ideas que él mismo expone, pero el libro está lleno de ideas, conceptos que para mí fueron totalmente nuevos y quiero releerlos, investigar y llegar a comprenderlos aún más. Fue una lectura maravillosa.

    Has aided my pathway towards teaching. Although it mirrors a lot of my "hippie-mindedness" I am somewhat perplexed as to how to join the tow worlds of spiritual journey and "worldly-knowledge".

    this book is pure gold. i understood and appreciated every word in it, but i know i will need to read it 10 more times, and meditate about it over the years, and dedicate a lot of attention to myself and to the world, before i can trully feel, or act according to, these simple yet astonishing lessons. this shit is not Dan Brown or any other reality-escapist best-seller. this is not an entertaining book. this is the real deal - the kind of book that requires absolute attention and a genuine will to this book is pure gold. i understood and appreciated every word in it, but i know i will need to read it 10 more times, and meditate about it over the years, and dedicate a lot of attention to myself and to the world, before i can trully feel, or act according to, these simple yet astonishing lessons. this shit is not Dan Brown or any other reality-escapist best-seller. this is not an entertaining book. this is the real deal - the kind of book that requires absolute attention and a genuine will to grow into something that is beyond the capricious demands of the ego or the little useless rituals that infest our lives. the hard truths that can be unveiled in this work illustrate very well the reason why mankind is falling into such a state of apathy, morbid confort and ignorance - because it takes a lot of work and dedication to fight against the totally deficient education that has corrupted us all from the moment we were born. even the possible contradictions and flaws, that are visible in K's arguments, are well worth to be explored and fully understood. well, to me a book must be entertaining - some will say, willing to stay inside the cave and never turn their heads to the light. others will be bored to death before such inconvenient knowledge. most will not understand how someone can propose to let our weaknesses and sins blossom into their full extent. those who understand it will fear doing it. it is not a coincidence that Krishnamurti - one of the most important vehicles of wisdom the world has ever known - remains in relative obscurity. most people prefer the entertainment than the hard struggle towards a complete communion with humanity and the world we live in. what they do not know, is that beyond the struggle is the absolute ecstasy and gratitude for every single little miracle that life has to offer. every episode of light and darkness, life and death, love and hatred, is a phenomenon to admire and learn from. i do not possess the hability to convey into words the wonders that i have, very rarely, felt with every atom of my body and soul in the most profound and beautiful events of my life. and i cannot explain how, reading the words in this book, there is a fever that strikes me and makes me want to grab life in all it's intense immensity. but Krishnamurti can find the words, and he can show the way.

    Absolutely loved his views on learning, knowledge, religion and his clarity of thought as well as the confidence of expression. This is my first JK book. The style of this book, more of a Q&A (with very long answers) felt a bit pedantic, which is probably intentional...

    La enseñanza es un proceso bidireccional en el cual todos nos identificamos en el otro.

    A beautifully written book ,I would say both for teachers and parents! There are lot of similarities between his teachings and Dr. Montessori's. A beautifully written book ,I would say both for teachers and parents! There are lot of similarities between his teachings and Dr. Montessori's.

    One of the most profound books on pedagogy. Krishnsmurti forces teachers and students to examine challenging questions about themselves and their role in education and the world. His writing pushes the reader to be reflective in ways I've never encountered in pedagogical theory before. One of the most profound books on pedagogy.
