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.
Some people think that Krishnamurti was an ivory tower speaker, and he was disconnected from the real life and the problems of real life, because he was always supported and taken care of by his friends-cum-devotees all his life, who loved him. This viewpoint cannot be discounted as it conforms to the facts and how he lived his life proves that he didn't participate in actual life.
