The Collected Works of J. Krishnamurti 1936-1944: The Mirror of Relationship

The Collected Works Of J. Krishnamurti - Jiddu Krishnamurti Really good stuff, Krishnamurti is great, I've been reading him since I was in high school and he's probably had a pretty big impact on my thinking (and on other authors I read). I only give it four stars because this particular volume is super repetitive. It's, as the title suggests, "collected works," which mainly means speeches he gave that were then transcribed by his followers. As I say, really good stuff, but this was in like the 1930s-1940s, before the internet and video and things like that, so a lot of the speeches are really similar. The Q&As are pretty great though, you see some variation there. I read these like a Christian might read daily devotionals.
