On Right Livelihood explores ways for us to be engaged in, but not engulfed by, our work. In a world frantic to produce, possess, and consume, few of us have time to wonder if our work damages the environment; if we are making the most of our talents or simply making a living; if we truly savor our leisure time. Krishnamurti presents sage and eloquent teachings on these issues of vital concern to us all.
Krishnamurti has said: “Is it not necessary for each to know for oneself what is the right means of livelihood? If we are avaricious, envious, seeking power, then our means of livelihood will correspond to our inward demands and so produce a world of competition, ruthlessness, oppression, ultimately ending in war.”
