1095 Krishnamurti on Truth




I say in the  impressum  of my book that "I am a follower of nothing and I know nothing". Krishnamurti himself says not to follow a teacher or a guru, furthermore, that "truth is a pathless land", that we must find our own way, however hard or inconvenient it may be. That is good advice, but it truly is hard and inconvenient; and frankly, on that account, I must say, I cheat. I listen to and read K. Join me.



Krishnamurti at his 1929 dissolution speech of the 'Order Of The Star In The East'

founded by the Theosophical Society in 1911


K: “The whole Purpose of Life is Learning.”


The core of Jiddu Krishnamurti's teachings is contained in the statement he made in 1929 when he said, “Truth is a pathless land”.


“I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organize a belief. A belief is purely an individual matter, and you cannot and must not organize it. If you do, it becomes dead, crystallized; it becomes a creed, a sect, a religion, to be imposed on others.”
