Study First

“Study then, but study first that which will most help you to help others. Work patiently at your studies, not that men may think you wise, not even that you may have the happiness of being wise, but because only the wise man can be wisely helpful.”  Krishnamurti, At the Feet of the Master

What K says is fundamentally simple

"What I have to say is fundamentally simple, and not very philosophical, metaphysical, or complicated. As I happen to come from India, people are apt to think that what I say is metaphysical and impractical, and so often brush aside the ideas which I try to put forward. Now to understand the present chaos with all its miseries, conflicts and difficulties, real criticism is required; not acceptance, but an active form of critical examination. If you merely accept a new set of ideas or a…

Order can be if there is awareness for an individual.

Unless there is order there can't be awareness for an individual.

Spreading Krishnamurti's Teachings

Question: I am very interested in your teachings; I would like to spread them. What is the best way to do it?

Krishnamurti: As it has always been in the past, so also at the present time the salvation of man is in his being creative. You are caught inwardly in belief, in fear and in those hindrances that prevent the coming together of man and man. That is, if I don't how to love my neighbour, my wife, how can there be communion between us. We need communion, not communion…

EXPLORING IN TO ACTIVITY OF THE MIND

Sirs, 

We are using so many words, suggestion, assumption, and discussion     to understand the state of mind, But it is to be understand oneself only.

Whatever the answer from any body, it is only help to get into the door.        The door means , Enlightened, eternal Emptiness, universal mind.

Nobody wants to learn

Q: We are soon entering the 21st century. Beyond the political and economical predictions, what is the best spiritual approach to solve the problems of this country (India), as well as those of the world?

Krishnamurti: The problems that India is facing are enormous -poverty, over-population, etc. And our government seems incapable to solve them. Besides we have already entered into the Computer Age - and it is not unlikely that the computer will eventually surpass man. It is…

Krishnamurti's Secret

In a talk he was giving, the great enlightened teacher Krishnamurti stopped momentarily, and asked his audience if they wanted to know his "secret" The lecture hall reportedly went silent as the audience waited to hear the pith of Krishnamurti's teaching, the kernel at the heart of the often obscure wisdom that Krishnamurti sought to convey. "This is my secret," he is purported to have said, "I do not mind what happens."

What does it mean to be a Krishnamurti-ite?

"The other day someone said that he was a Krishnamurti-ite, whereas so and so belonged to another group. As he was saying it, he was utterly unconscious of the implications of this identification. He was not by any means a foolish person; he was well read. cultured and all the rest of it. Nor was he sentimental or emotional over the matter; on the contrary, he was clear and definite. Why had he become a "Krishnamurti-ite"? He had followed others, belonged to many wearisome groups and…

    Does the Past Exist? 63 Replies

    The past is yesterday, and yesterday cannot be brought forward. But yesterday, the past, can be reconstructed . What we call the past is our version -- our memory -- of "what was," activated and made a present reality through physical reaction to that memory.Without this reconstruction of what was, the present unfolds naturally and logically from where it IS, never from the distorting where it WAS. Without this reconstruction, "the past" cannot be said to exist.Continue

    Asking where the answer is not. 1 Reply

    I ask myself, am I coming to a forum to find answers, consciously or unconsciously, and as well, in the cleverness of the mind, adopt a practice of “there is no answer” approach? It is the habit of study, of conversation, to find answers.  Answers which satisfy a search for knowledge and in that search a desire to keep going, speculating, and playing with the dialogue. By taking the position, “there is no answer”, there is always the continuing development of words and ideas in a conversation,…Continue

    Why is Understanding so Difficult? 15 Replies

    Understanding is difficult because everything that we come into contact with, or that we do in this life, is filtered through a screen of protection/enhancement with regard to the self -- the thinker, the "I." We compare, we evaluate, we weigh and judge, and then we make a choice that is never without some uncertainty. This process of a constantly unsettled acceptance and rejection is difficult, and it requires effort.There is no effort required for the understanding of the basically very…Continue
