The Word Death is Not Death And What You Think You Know About Death Is Also Not Death

In the same way as the word tree is not the tree, the word death is not death. But, death is such an important subject for so many that it is taken as fact that we know death.  Some here may say, for example, that Krishnamurti said said so and so and so death is that, the end of everything I have known etc., but the description has nothing to do with the described. So you don't know death.  You may argue perhaps, that you have had some experience and so I do…

Go beyond thoughts-K, why?

Many a times K has told ' one must go beyond thoughts' .
It is probably very significant in life.Man can enter into a supernatural state probably if he goes beyond thoughts, , in such a condition his mind will be full of space only wherein truth can flash in , i think.Hence its great importance for a serious person who wants truth!
What are the difficulties to attain this state ?Probably if it is urgent then one must try for such attainment without delay.

Question

Krishnamurti: when one asks a question, in that is implied that someone is going to answer the question. The meaning of that word 'question' means to seek. So together we are going to seek the answer; not that the speaker is going to answer the question but together we are going to seek, find, discover the right answer. So please this is not a Delphic Oracle. Together we are going to find out the meaning and the significance, not only of the question but also together seek the answer.…

Is spelling English correctly anything crucial in self knowledge?

Is self knowledge verbal? Are we becoming more and more like a verbal priest or a verbal mullahs or a verbal rabbie?

A K-Skeptic's Assessment on K

These are some of the remarks made by a confirmed skeptic of K's philosophy and vision. There are many more, but only a few by the erstwhile Ariana have been provided here. How many of these stand to reason, let us see for ourselves. It is useful to do a post-mortem of the same so that we can see where exactly we stand in relation to that.

1) your indictment is not only dishonest, but unjust. Shame on you, sir.

2) what you're saying, though naive, is nothing new. What child hasn't…

What is simplicity?

Can one be simple? Or simplicity is the absence of complexity?

Posted by B on April 30, 2016 at 1:44pm — 2 Comments

In response to Ariana's blog that states Krishnamurti was a lunatic.

She won't allow anybody question her statements in her blogs by monitoring it according to her agenda(God knows what it is). On what basis dose she claim that Krishnamurti was a superman?

    Thought vs Observation 1491 Replies

    All these years of participating in dialogues pertaining to K seem to have accomplished absolutely nothing.  Nothing has changed in my life.   Thought still rules, and where thought rules, there is no observation.  Broadly speaking, of course.  In the margins one might argue otherwise, but that would merely be a waste of time.Is there something I'm doing wrong.  Or is there something I'm failing to do?  But when I look around, much the same picture appears everywhere.  And of course K did…Continue

    Relationship is the only thing..K-D.Q. Key to Transformation 3 Replies

    Relationship is the only thing that we have and without understanding that relationship we can never find out what reality is or God is.So to bring about a complete change in the social structure in the society the individual must cleanse his relationship and the cleansing his(her) relationship is the beginning of his own transformation. D. Q. Of K. (Book- Social Responsibility)Thus if we are concerned at all with transformation then understanding ourselves in our relationships in the society…Continue

    The 'arrival' of K at K 34 Replies

    K, prior to 'enlightenment', cannot have appreciated that he might have been doing anything 'right'. Indeed he cannot have had any such goal. If he had (on either count) there is no way it could have happened. Nobody thinking themselves 'right' is ever going to be; and nobody hoping to get somewhere is ever going to 'arrive'.Continue

    The Core of the Teachings of Krishnamurti 122 Replies

    When asked in 1974 by his biographer, Mary Lutyens, to define his teachings Krishnamurti wrote the following:"The core of Krishnamurti's teaching is contained in the statement he made in 1929 when he said 'Truth is a pathless land'. Man cannot come to it through any organisation, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the…Continue

    On thoughts , their power and usefulness 42 Replies

    Thought is a vital living force- the most vital, subtle and irrestible force that exists in the universe.Thoughts are living things;they move; they have form, shape, colour, quality,substance, power and weight.You may cease to be,but thoughts can never die.A thought is as much solid as a piece of stone. Thought is the real action; it is a dynamic force.A thought of joy creates sympathetically a thought of joy in others.A noble thought is a potent antidote to counteract an evil thought.Through…Continue

    2 cheers 4 DEMOCRACY

    I do not believe in Belief. But this is an Age of Faith, and there are so many militant creeds that, in self-defence, one has to formulate a creed of one's own. Tolerance, good temper and sympathy are no longer enough in a world which is rent by religious and racial persecution, in a world where ignorance rules, and Science, who ought to have ruled, plays the subservient pimp. Tolerance, good temper and sympathy - they are what matter really, and if the human race is not to collapse they must…Continue

    You call it "the self" as if it wasn't you.As long as you are not the self, you'll be forever chasing your tail, determined to "negate" it.I read this recently and I am thinking about it for myself.What is this "you" if it is not me? What is it, this thing,  that is calling it something, anything?Do you see the questions, seriously?  It is a bit complicated.It has been implied there is an ability for people to think they are not  themselves by some thought process.  Is this idea people can…Continue

    Who belongs here? 258 Replies

    Do people who are interested in what Krishnamurti was interested in -- seeing/living the truth of things -- but are not interested in Krishnamurti's literal teachings (words/ideas) belong in this forum? It's a valid question, right? It is, after all, a Krishnamurti forum ... though at times it hardly seems so. What if these people were, at one time, very into Krishnamurti? Spent perhaps years studying his teachings, working through them. Does that change the answer to the question? Continue
