Talks and discussions of Krishnamurti with students at staff at Brockwood Park School (Hampshire, England) in Part 1, and conversations with parents and teachers at the Krishnamurti schools in India.

"Life is really about detachment. Without detachment, you cannot make one step forward in evolution. A growing detachment, by its very nature, frees you from identification with your body, your emotions, your mental concepts. That is how the steps are taken. I would say, read Maitreya's teachings and put them into practice. Read Krishnamurti and put it into practice. It is not simply a question of reading and knowing; it is a question of putting it into practice. They are talking about exactly the same thing, the same process -- detachment." (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya's Mission, Vol.III, p.285.)

Apart from a full-colour photograph of the school on the cover this edition has four full-colour plates of life at the school. The US edition was published with the same dust jacket design.

Re-published in 2003 by the Independent Publishers Group (USA).
