Krishnamurthi’s teaching on “observer” / Observed i.e. Drk Drshya viveka struck me immensely in my early days, to understand the “conditioned mind” and transforming it to a “silent mind”.
I think the First and Last Freedom is one of his best and complete books, easier to read, and with very pertinent Q&A. The linked document contains introduction from the book and its list of contents.
The core of Krishnamurti’s teaching is contained in the
statement he made in 1929 when he said, ‘Truth is a pathless land’. Man cannot come to it through any organisation, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection.’
