This comprehensive record of Krishnamurti's teaching is an excellent, wide-ranging introduction to the great philosopher's thought. Within general discussion of conflict, fear, violence, religious experience, self-knowledge, and intelligence, Krishnamurti examines specific issues, such as the role of the teacher and tradition; the need for awareness of "cosmic consciousness"; the problem of good and evil; and traditional Vedanta methods of help for different levels of seekers. Krishnamuri discusses these themes with Jacob Needleman. Alain Naude, and Swami Venkatasananda, among others. "The Awakening of Intelligence" is indispensable for all those intent on a fuller understanding of Krishnamurti's teaching.
