“Intelligence comes into being when the brain discovers its fallibility, when it discovers what it is capable of, and what it is not.”
This comprehensive record of Krishnamurti’s teaching is an excellent, wide-ranging introduction to the great philosopher’s thought. Within general discussions of conflict, fear, violence, religious experience, self-knowledge, and intelligence, Krishnamurti examines specific issues, such as the role of the teacher and tradition; the need for awareness of ‘cosmic consciousness’; the problem of good and evil; and traditional Vedanta methods of help for different levels of seekers. Krishnamurti discusses these themes with Jacob Needleman, Alain Naude, and Swami Venkatasananda, among others. ‘The Awakening of Intelligence’ is indispensable for all those intent on a fuller understanding of Krishnamurti’s teaching.
