Can Humanity Change?: J. Krishnamurti in Dialogue with Buddhistsby Jiddu Krishnamurti
Synopses & Reviews
Many have considered Buddhism to be the religion closest in spirit to J. Krishnamurti's spiritual teaching—even though the great teacher was famous for urging students to seek truth outside organized religion. This record of a historic encounter between Krishnamurti and a group of Buddhist scholars provides a unique opportunity to see what the great teacher had to say himself about Buddhist teachings. The conversations, which took place in London in the late 1970s, focused on human consciousness and its potential for transformation. Participants include Walpola Rahula, the renowned Sri Lankan Buddhist monk and scholar, author of the classic introductory text What the Buddha Taught.

About the Author
J. Krishnamurti (18951986) was a unique spiritual figure who was "discovered" by members of the Theosophical Society when he was a young boy in India and groomed to be a world teacher. As a young man, he departed the Society—and organized religion altogether—to become a teacher of even greater renown. He drew large audiences at his lectures up until his death at the age of ninety.
