Description - Fire in the Mind, 2nd Edition Revised by J. Krishnamurti

First published in 1995 to commemorate the birth centenary of J. Krishnamurti, FIRE IN THE MIND consists of fifteen dialogues between Krishnamurti and Pupul Jayakar, a friend for many years and author of 'Krishnamurti: A Biography'. Held between the years 1978 and 1984, these dialogues cover a vast range of concerns - fear, sorrow, time, death and the ending of the self. They, also, explore subjects central to scientific research today, such as the questions of biological survival, the nature of consciousness and ageing and renewal of the brain cells.

Author Biography - J. Krishnamurti

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born on 11 May 1895 in Madanapalle, a small town in south India. He and his brother were adopted in their youth by Dr Annie Besant, then president of the Theosophical Society. Dr Besant and others proclaimed that Krishnamurti was to be a world teacher whose coming the Theosophists had predicted. To prepare the world for this coming, a world-wide organisation called the Order of the Star in the East was formed and the young Krishnamurti was made its head. In 1929, however, Krishnamurti renounced the role that he was expected to play, dissolved the Order with its huge following and returned all the money and property that had been donated for this work. From then, for nearly sixty years until his death on 17 February 1986, he travelled throughout the world talking to large audiences and to individuals about the need for a radical change in mankind.
