I krishnamurri help but to feel this is an erroneous presupposition, while tempting, it seems to necessarily lead to the very desire and becoming that both Bohm and Krishnamurti are speaking against– a psychological becoming where humanity may witness inward revolutions leading to the cessation of suffering, the very suffering caused by desire for becoming.
Ending of Time, The – J. Krishnamurti Online
It seems the notion of a “wrong” turn presupposes a division between what is and what could have been. That said, the discussion about time and conscious thought was incredibly insightful; so insightful, in fact, that it led me to question the central theme of humanities wrong turn.
Jan 12, Charles rated it really liked it. The ending of time comes oof we realize that time cannot end. This dialogue is a philosophical masterpiece between two of the greatest minds of our ‘time’. Jan 26, Angela rated it did not like it. Unstructured smatterings of thoughts between two people, only one of which can actually explain or formulate appropriate ideas.
The book is effectively JK sprouting his spiritual prowess and the frivolity of mankind through arm movements and gesticulations formalized as “do you know what I mean?

Some interesting questions posed but no actual progression mrishnamurti the exploration of those questions. Oct 08, Noe Nieto rated it it was amazing Shelves: The dialogues between David Bohm and Jiddu krishnamurti are one of the most provoking books i’ve jiddk. They really honor the word “dialoge” and very cautiously avoid any of the traps that thought uses to give itself continuity without givin chance to Unitary Perception.
Nov 22, Andrei Illes rated it it was amazing. If one is really really aware when reading this book and reads the book with an open mind, he may get a grasp of what the speakers are trying to transmit towards the readers.
I think it’s essential to have a try, beside of what your believs currently are. Oct 04, Jigar Brahmbhatt rated it liked it. Interesting dialog between two individuals from fields that are poles apart, at times incomprehensible, ultimately posing more questions than answering them. Dec 22, Cyberpayanee rated it it was amazing. This dialogue has unsuspected depths, not in the usual sense of the word “depth” but almost opens perceptions to milky way and beyond, if one doesnt pull back in fear.
The vista is beyond conceptual understanding, you can only stay silently with the understanding for brief period – mind doesnot want to fully go along.

K is bound to change the world by its grace and not through words or intellectual understanding. The action one feels is timeless and is already going on imperceptably. By the way, It isnt only J. K, there are many such focal points such as Ramana Maharishi, Ramakrishna, Shridi and many other centeres which are annoynymous which will change the course or is really changing the course of humanity.
This isnt Indian or Tibetain krushnamurti.
K had interesting thoughtful in-depth discussions with Prof Alan Anderson and others but these do not reveal beyond a certain rational limit imposed by thought. These dialogues are on a level where they can be applied rationally and perhaps meant that way. But dialogues with Bohm reveal much more. Sep 16, Elizabeth Doran rated it really liked it Recommended to Elizabeth by: This book is a disscussion between two great minds a physicist and a spiritual leader.
They are talking about the nature of reality. The book discusses how humanity took a wrong turn and how to bring about fnding and lasting peace.
I am interested in learnig how to stay present. I would reccomend reading the Power of Now by Echart Tolle and then reading this book which goes into the nature of time. But what does that mean? Dattaterya timme to have had an experience with enlightnment just from reading this book. This book offers a lot of insight on the inner workings of the mind, the conscience, the relationship between them and between them and the universal mind and conscience. A great read for anyone interested in revealing answers to those big questions that everyone of us asks from time to time, regarding life, the universe and whatever is in between.
Jan 13, Parminder rated it liked it. It is one of the better books by K. It truly explores the working of human mind and how it is limited by psychological time. Its chapters about insight are remarkable. Jul 24, Mona Prajapati jlddu it really liked it. Jun 28, Bryan rated it it was amazing. One of his last and most succinct works with physicist David Bohm.
K himself said if you are going to read him start with this book and go backwards. I have to agree. Tike 23, Charlie Mcallister rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sep 27, James rated it really liked it Shelves: I waffled from stars throughout the “dialogue”. Krishnamurti and Bohm discuss and debate, and at times Dialogue about cosmology, epistemology and all the existential issues therein from the perspective that humans have “taken a wrong turn at some time”.
They ask questions of how do we realize the true nature of ourselves that is not in the act of becoming. There is a chasm here that they struggle to find a way to cross that is sometimes difficult to read. First I believe the book could stand thee least a preface and a couple of footnotes. The stage is never set we just dive right in and some particulars were specific enough that a explanatory footnote would have been helpful. Somehow I managed to stay with this “dialogue”.
I think I find it most interesting that David Bohm would some time later write an essay “On Dialogue” where I think he illustrates the difficulties of achieving mutual understanding.
Unfortunately I see a lot of the difficulties of Dialogue not being achieved.
Numerous assumptions appear unchecked. I don’t know of course if this was out of politeness or inertia of the conversations, but there were too many dnding where I wanted to dive in an challenge an assumption to tease out a better understanding.
I found it somewhat disappointing that Dr. Bohm a physicist rarely employees any special scientific knowledge. There are times where he certainly illustrates western scientific thought, but with so much hinging on the elimination of time I was surprised not to hear some notion of the nature of time in the physical world.
Much of modern popular cosmology seems to embrace the symmetry problems of time in the physical world. I imagine that perhaps I krishnamurto missed something, but I feel an opportunity was missed to add to the conversation. The discussion on the brain some 35 years later sound quite strange and out of place given the advances in brain science, but I think they feel more out of place being voiced by two non-experts in the field with undue confidence.
There is some admission of ignorance by brain scientists of the time, but it just reads as slightly pretentious. Overall, I think this is an important book with many question to ponder long after putting it down. Aug 07, Persephone Abbott rated it it was ok. My zumba classmate inspected the book I held between my hands.
