Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Kinfonet Glossary

Thoughout his speaking and writing career, Krishnamurti experimented with different modes of expression in an effort to communicate as clearly as possible. This was a daunting task given the nature of the subject matter, much of which requires thinking outside deeply ingrained patterns.

This glossary illustrates some of the novel ways in which Krishnamurti altered the meaning of certain everyday words, in many circumstances re-inventing them altogether, with the sole purpose of catalysing revolutionary thinking in the minds of his listeners.

Note: This is an ongoing effort and glossary words will be added bit by bit over time. Check back regularly for updates.
