    Voici le traité de la seule révolution qui vaille : la libération intérieure. L'homme en cage, prisonnier des dogmatismes et des conformismes de pensée, est une ombre illusoire.
    De l'exigence spirituelle présente de façon plus ou moins confuse dans chaque être humain, jusqu'à cette authentique libération, nous sommes conviés ici à parcourir toutes les étapes : se connaître soi-même, surmonter la peur, découvrir peu à peu le silence et la plénitude.
    Réalisé à partir des conférences du grand philosophe indien, ce livre constitue une initiation accessible et brève à une philosophie dont la renommée et l'influence, au fil des générations, n'ont fait que grandir.

    L'enseignement de Krishnamurti repose sur la conviction que les transformations de la société ne peuvent se faire qu'au terme d'une transformation des individus. Critique vis-à-vis des religions et des sectes, Krishnamurti n'aura de cesse de répéter que le bonheur passe par le refus de tout type d'autorité. C'est le sens des multiples conférences qu'il a données pendant des dizaines d'années, partout dans le monde.
    " Dès l'instant où vous suivez quelqu'un, vous cessez de suivre la Vérité. "
    Le Sens du bonheur- un best-seller mondial - nous permet de voir le monde autrement. Sans parti pris, universelle, la parole de Krishnamurti nous fait découvrir les racines mêmes de nos problèmes personnels et de ceux de la société qui nous entoure. Il nous apprend l'art de voir et d'écouter avec notre coeur. Et à découvrir la Vérité qui est en nous.
