‘In the Problem is the Solution’ consists of the fourteen Question and Answer Meetings that J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986) held in India between 1981 and 1985 in Madras, Bombay, and Varanasi. The Questions themselves are impressive in the range of themes they cover: the outward problems of poverty, corruption, and the decline of values in India; and the individual and collective apathy towards these; the conflicts prevailing in all societies; the general degeneration of man despite his technological progress; the absence of true relationship at various levels; the deep inner turmoil arising from psychological wounds, loneliness, fear, sorrow, and lack of love; and the eternal questions about God, rebirth, miracles and so on.
There are the inevitable questions prompted by Krishnamurti’s own radical insights. These questions, as also Krishnamurti’s elucidation and clarification, make this book specially relevant for those who are familiar with his teachings but wish to go deeper into it. Besides, the quality of Krishnamurti’s relationship with and responses to his listeners – sometimes intimate, sometimes stern, but always uncompromising – comes through powerfully in this book.
