Description - Can Humanity Change? by J. Krishnamurti
This book is a record of a unique event- when J. Krishnamurti sat down, in 1978 and 1979, to dialogue with a group of prominent Buddhists on topics related to human consciousness. This was an especially auspicious occasion, as many people have considered Buddhism to be closest in spirit to Krishnamurti's teaching among all the religions, and because the great teacher was famous for advising his students to seek truth away from religion or conventional spiritual authority. The discussion was made even more interesting in that among the pimary participants were Walpola Rahula, the renowned Sri Lankan Buddhist scholar and author of the classic introductory text WHAT THE BUDDHA TAUGHT and the physicist David Bohm.The wide ranging discussion centers on the following topics-- Is Krishnamurti simply restating what the Buddha already said?- Is there a state of mind without the self?- What is the relationship between freedom, love, and action?- What is truth?- Is there life after death?The book also includes a section of question-and-answer material pertinent to the discussion, gathered from talks given by Krishnamurti's in other times and places.
