"This book is a commemoration of Krishnamurti's last talks at Saanen, Switzerland, after twenty-five years of holding international summer gatherings there. It was a lucky coincidence that Mark Edwards was at Saanen that summer to photograph the gathering from the beginning, for Krishnamurti's decision to hold no more talks there was not announced until almost the end of the meetings." (From the Foreword)

"You can listen to Krishnamurti in two ways: to what he says, taking it in intellectually, and say: 'That is very good. I agree with all of that. I understand 100 per cent, and I agree with it. I think he's a very fine and wonderful old gentleman.' Or you can listen, and as he is speaking, apply it to yourself. When he says: 'Ask yourself "Who is experiencing this fear?" ', do it as he is talking. Who is? I am. Well, who am I? Find out who is doing the experiencing. Am I separate from this experience? As he is talking, go through it. At the end you will find that you are a different person." (Benjamin Creme, The Great Approach, p.269.)

This volume contains many photographs of Krishnamurti and the gatherings at Saanen in the summer of 1985.
