Krishnamurti, Jiddu. Commentaries On Living: Second Series From The Notebooks...
Published 1959, Victor Gollanz, London.
A detailed biography of Krishnamurti can be found here:
Krishnamurti, 1895-1986, was a writer and speaker of Philosophical and spiritual subjects.utIn this book he expounds on various topics such as Creative Happiness,The Fear of Death,The Purpose of Life, Contentment, Envy and Loneliness, and much more.
He was born in India, and was taken under the wing of theosophist Charles Webster Leadbeater, and Annie Besant of the Theosophical Society in Madras. They believed him to be a vehicle for the next World Teacher. But he eventually left that organisation, and travelled the World as an independant, giving talks to groups and individuals. He claimed no allegiance to any religion, caste, nationality or philosophy.
He died at his home in Ojai, California, in 1986.
This is a book comprised of short discourses on various topics, as the title suggests, about 'Living.' based on notes that the Author made during his travels and teaching. Lots of wisdom and guidance to be found between these pages.
