Jiddu Krishnamurti was a writer and inspirational speaker on philosophical and spiritual subjects. In his early life he was prepared to be the new World Teacher. However, later one, he rejected this mantle and dismissed the organization behind it. His favorite subjects included psychological revolution, the nature of mind, meditation, inquiry, human relationships, and bringing about radical change in society. He constantly stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being and emphasized that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social.
Jiddu Krishnamurti Quotes:
The flowering of love is meditation.
To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.
So, the first requisite is freedom, and not seeking the purpose of life. Without freedom, obviously, one cannot find it; without being liberated from our own petty little wants, pursuits, ambitions, envies, and ill will – without freedom from these things, how can one possibly inquire or discover what is the purpose of life?
There are two kinds of freedom: one is the freedom from something, which is a reaction; and the other is not a reaction, it is being free.
It is truth that liberates, not your effort to be free
Meditation is not a means to an end. It is both the means and the end.
