Inward revolution by J. Krishnamurti mainly treats the theme of freedom of ideas while one is doing a spiritual quest. In fact, if you are conditioned by religion, any religion, by a guru, or by your stock of knowledge, you cannot see yourself and reality as they are. You see things as you have been taught. By doing so, you give rise to a conflict between what it actually is and what it should be.
According to Krishnamurti, such conflict must be avoided not only when you do meditation but also in your ordinary daily life. In other words, the mind must be free of prejudices and preconceived ideas.
Throughout the book, from the first to the last page, the author insists on the theme of freedom from conditioning.
I have found some similarities between Osho’s teachings and Krishnamurti’s. On the other hand, all great masters and superior minds are closer to the truth than we can imagine.
