In his foreword to this collection of passages which are taken from his books, Krishnamurti writes: "Meditation is the ending of thought. It is only then that there is a different dimension which is beyond time."
A paperback edition was published by Shambhala in 2002, containing additional selections made by Evelyne Blau.

Includes a full-colour frontispiece portrait of the author.

Note: In 1969 a small 12-page volume was published by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust of London, entitled Meditations 1969, which is not the same volume, but a pocket-sized collection of 11 short essays taken from recordings that Krishnamurti made in that year. In the first of these meditations Krishnamurti writes: "In the space which thought creates around itself there is no love. This space divides man from man, and in it is all the becoming, the battle of life, the agony and fear. Meditation is the ending of this space, the ending of the me." This small collection was reprinted, along with four other previously published booklets, in the compilation volume Freedom, Love, and Action (Shambhala, 1994).
