Summary:

In this first in a series of four discussions with young people in Amsterdam
J. Krishnamurti's young questioners start as they mean to go with particularly esoteric query: which can be paraphrased as 'How can we see the astral world?'. Typically, J. Krishnamurti is unfazed by the nebulous nature of the topic and begins his response with the challenge: 'You know the way to see the astral world.' he then goes on to suggest that what the young person really means is to be supersensitive; to experience extrasensory perception which means to see more than the physical, reading other people's thoughts, thought transference and so on. To achieve this, he says that you need to 'to eat the right kind of food, not smoke, nor drugs, no drink, lead a very regular life, proper exerciseall is implied in this. And lead a very, highly moral life, than perhaps you might be able to see something more, less physical and so on.' The discussion becomes more and more animated, running the gamut of philosophical concepts from disharmony and disorder to global wars and terrorism, the existence of time, the nature of desire and much more besides.
ABOUT J. KRISHNAMURTI
Jiddu Krishnamurti (May 12, 1895-February 17, 1986) was a world renowned writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual subjects. His subject matter included: the purpose of meditation, human relationships, the nature of the mind, and how to enact positive change in global society.
Krishnamurti was born into a Telugu Brahmin family in what was then colonial India. In early adolescence, he had a chance encounter with prominent occultist and highranking theosophist C.W. Leadbeater in the grounds of the Theosophical Society headquarters at Adyar in Madras (now Chennai). He was subsequently raised under the tutelage of Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater, leaders of the Society at the time, who believed him to be a vehicle for an expected World Teacher. As a young man, he disavowed this idea and dissolved the worldwide organization (the Order of the Star) established to support it. He claimed allegiance to no nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent the rest of his life traveling the world as an individual speaker, speaking to large and small groups, as well as with interested individuals. He authored a number of books, among them The First and Last Freedom, The Only Revolution, and Krishnamurti's Notebook. :" In addition, a large collection of his talks and discussions have been published. At age 90, he addressed the United Nations on the subject of peace and awareness, and was awarded the 1984 UN Peace Medal. His last public talk was in Madras, India, in January 1986, a month before his death at home in Ojai, California.
His supporters, working through several nonprofit foundations, oversee a number of independent schools centered on his views on education - in India, England and the United States - and continue to transcribe and distribute many of his thousands of talks, group and individual discussions, and other writings, publishing them in a variety of formats including print, audio, video and digital formats as well as online, in many languages.In this first in a series of four discussions with young people in Amsterdam
