    Can Humanity Change?: J. Krishnamurti in Dialogue with Buddhists.David Skitt (ed.) - 2003 - London ;Shambhala.
    Many have considered Buddhism to be the religion closest in spirit to J. Krishnamurti’s spiritual teaching–even though the great teacher was famous for urging students to seek truth outside organized religion. This record of a historic encounter between Krishnamurti and a group of Buddhist scholars provides a unique opportunity to see what the great teacher had to say himself about Buddhist teachings. The conversations, which took place in London in the late 1970s, focused on human consciousness and its potential for (...)

    Eastern and Western Empiricism and the 'No-Self' Theory.A. H. Lesser - 1979 - Religious Studies 15 (1):55 - 64.
    Several recent writers, of whom the most important and accessible, for English readers, are probably K. N. Jayatilleke and W.

The Buddha himself is said to have distinguished between those who base their religion, or world-view, on tradition, those who base it on reasoning and speculation, and those who base it on personal experience, as he (...)
