Book Overview
This audio recording of special discussions between J. Krishnamurti and Dr. David Bohm offers penetrating dialogues between the great spiritual leader and the renowned physicist that shed light on fundamental issues of existence. The starting point of this in-depth discussion is the question: Has humanity taken a wrong turn, which has brought about endless division, conflict, and destruction? This leads to an exploration of the nature of humanity and a person s relationship to society, as well as new insights on human thought, death, awakening insight, cosmic order, and the problem of the fragmented mind. Krishnamurti and Bohm probe such questions as: Is the source of human conflict the individual s inability to face the fact of what he or she actually is, psychologically, resulting in the imposition of an illusory goal of what one must try to become? Why has humanity made thought so important in every aspect of life? Has technical and time-restricted thought been allowed to slip over into more subtle areas of functioning, where it is inappropriate? How does one cleanse the mind of the accumulation of time and break the pattern of ego-centered activity ? Can someone who has achieved self-transcendent insight help free others from the world of illusion? Is it possible that, through insight, the brain can renew itself, healing the damage caused by years of incorrect function?
