Book Review: Think on These Things – Edited by D. Rajagopal
This is one of the books I had started exploring when I had Covid. If you remember, I was trying to look for books on Silence.
Overall, I did not enjoy the book. Just gave up after reading one third of it. Krishnamurti’s commentary or insights are fairly interesting. I loved the very first chapter – “The Purpose of Education”. But the editor, in my opinion, has made a mess of the whole book by presenting 27 very disparate chapters (each mercifully only 4-5 pages long). The jump from one topic to another has little flow and even less lucidity. Inside of a chapter, there are a couple of pages of Krishnamurti’s insights and then there are a few questions that he answers. The questions seem off place – or at least the connection to the topic de jure is tenuous most of the times. Or at least to a person like me, so it seemed.
Certainly cannot recommend this book. There has to be a better book that has put Krishnamurti’s thoughts together.
