9781888004908: The Mirror of Relationship: Love, Sex, and Chastity

This book features excerpts on the title's theme from Krishnamurti's talks and discussions held between 1933 and 1967. They have proven helpful in dialogues and for use in high school and college classrooms. There are talks on marriage, love, relationship, and sex. Krishnamurti states, "sex becomes an extraordinary, difficult, and complex problem so long as you do not understand the mind.”

Krishnamurti asks the reader to investigate essential questions: How can I live with another without conflict? Why are relationships difficult? What is awareness in relationship? Do I really know what love is? What does it mean to learn in a relationship? What is the role of thought and memory in relating to another?

"There is no escape from relationship. In that relationship, which is the mirror in which we can see ourselves, we can discover what we are, our reactions, our prejudices, our fears, depression, anxieties, loneliness, sorrow, pain, grief. We can also discover whether we love or there is no such thing as love. So, we will examine this question of relationship because that is the basis of love.” -J. Krishnamurti Madras, India, 1982

"Why does the mind think about sex at all? Why? Why has it become a central issue in your life? Sex has become an extraordinary, difficult, and complex problem so long as you do not understand the mind, which thinks about the problem. The act itself can never be a problem but thought about the act creates the problem.” -J. Krishnamurti, The First and Last Freedom

About the Author:

Krishnamurti, Jiddu born of middle-class Brahmin parents, was recognized at age fourteen as the coming World Teacher. Krishnamurti claimed allegiance to no caste, nationality or religion and was bound by no tradition. He traveled the world and spoke spontaneously to large audiences until the end of his life at age ninety. He said man has to free himself of all fear, conditioning, authority and dogma through self-knowledge and this will bring about order and psychological mutation.

Review:

"A comprehensive collection of extracts on the subject of sex and love." -- John Duncan

"Relationship is something I always struggle with, here is a book that suggests I stop struggling and start loving." -- Jayne Cramer
