12 Enlightening Jiddu Krishnamurti Quotes That Will Blow Your Mind
In his early life, he was groomed to be the new World Teacher , but later rejected this mantle and withdrew from the Theosophy organization behind it. He stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being and emphasised that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social. Krishnamurti was born in south India in what is now the modern day Madanapalle of Andhra Pradesh.
In early adolescence, he met occultist and theosophist Charles Webster Leadbeater on the grounds of the Theosophical Society headquarters at Adyar in Madras. He was subsequently raised under the tutelage of Annie Besant and Leadbeater, leaders of the Society at the time, who believed him to be a 'vehicle' for an expected World Teacher. As a young man, he disavowed this idea and dissolved the Order of the Star in the East , an organisation that had been established to support it. Krishnamurti said he had no allegiance to any nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent the rest of his life travelling the world, speaking to large and small groups, as well as individuals.
Many of his talks and discussions have been published. His last public talk was in Madras, India, in January , a month before his death at his home in Ojai, California. They continue to transcribe and distribute his thousands of talks, group and individual discussions, and writings by use of a variety of media formats and languages.
Krishnamurti was unrelated to his contemporary U. Krishnamurti — , although the two men had a number of meetings. The date of birth of Krishnamurti is a matter of dispute. Mary Lutyens determines it to be 11 May ,  but Christine Williams notes the unreliability of birth registrations in that period and that statements claiming dates ranging from 4 May to 25 May exist.
He used calculations based on a published horoscope to derive a date of 11 May but "retains a measure of scepticism" about it. He was born in a Telugu -speaking Brahmin family. Krishnamurti was fond of his mother Sanjeevamma, who died when he was ten.
In the family settled in Cudappah , where Krishnamurti had contracted malaria during a previous stay. He suffered recurrent bouts of the disease over many years.
Krishnamurti's father retired at the end of Being of limited means he sought employment at the headquarters of the Theosophical Society at Adyar. Narayaniah had been a Theosophist since He was eventually hired by the Society as a clerk, moving there with his family in January Leadbeater had noticed Krishnamurti on the Society's beach on the Adyar river, and was amazed by the "most wonderful aura he had ever seen, without a particle of selfishness in it.
In her biography of Krishnamurti, Pupul Jayakar quotes him speaking of that period in his life some 75 years later: "The boy had always said "I will do whatever you want".
There was an element of subservience, obedience. The boy was vague, uncertain, woolly ; he didn't seem to care what was happening. He was like a vessel with a large hole in it, whatever was put in, went through, nothing remained. Following his discovery by Leadbeater, Krishnamurti was nurtured by the Theosophical Society in Adyar.
Leadbeater and a small number of trusted associates undertook the task of educating, protecting, and generally preparing Krishnamurti as the "vehicle" of the expected World Teacher. Krishnamurti often later called Krishnaji  and his younger brother Nityananda Nitya were privately tutored at the Theosophical compound in Madras, and later exposed to a comparatively opulent life among a segment of European high society as they continued their education abroad. Despite his history of problems with schoolwork and concerns about his capacities and physical condition, the year-old Krishnamurti was able to speak and write competently in English within six months.
When he was asked in later life what he thought would have happened to him if he had not been 'discovered' by Leadbeater he unhesitatingly replied "I would have died".
During this time Krishnamurti had developed a strong bond with Annie Besant and came to view her as a surrogate mother.
His father, who had initially assented to Besant's legal guardianship of Krishnamurti,  was pushed into the background by the swirl of attention around his son. In he sued Besant to annul the guardianship agreement. After a protracted legal battle, Besant took custody of Krishnamurti and Nitya.
Krishnamurti was named as its head, with senior Theosophists assigned various other positions. Membership was open to anybody who accepted the doctrine of the Coming of the World Teacher. Controversy soon erupted, both within the Theosophical Society and outside it, in Hindu circles and the Indian press. Mary Lutyens , a biographer and friend of Krishnamurti, says that there was a time when he believed that he was to become the World Teacher after correct spiritual and secular guidance and education.
While he showed a natural aptitude in sports, Krishnamurti always had problems with formal schooling and was not academically inclined. He eventually gave up university education after several attempts at admission. He did take to foreign languages, in time speaking several with some fluency. His public image, cultivated by the Theosophists, "was to be characterized by a well-polished exterior, a sobriety of purpose, a cosmopolitan outlook and an otherworldly, almost beatific detachment in his demeanor.
Krishnamurti and Nitya were taken to England in April After the war, Krishnamurti embarked on a series of lectures, meetings and discussions around the world, related to his duties as the Head of the OSE, accompanied by Nitya, by then the Organizing Secretary of the Order. He was initially described as a halting, hesitant, and repetitive speaker, but his delivery and confidence improved, and he gradually took command of the meetings. In Krishnamurti fell in love with Helen Knothe , a year-old American whose family associated with the Theosophists.
The experience was tempered by the realisation that his work and expected life-mission precluded what would otherwise be considered normal relationships and by the mids the two of them had drifted apart.
In Krishnamurti and Nitya travelled from Sydney to California. In California, they stayed at a cottage in the Ojai Valley. It was thought that the area's climate would be beneficial to Nitya, who had been diagnosed with tuberculosis.
Nitya's failing health became a concern for Krishnamurti. Eventually, a trust , formed by supporters, bought a cottage and surrounding property there for them. This became Krishnamurti's official residence. At Ojai in August and September , Krishnamurti went through an intense 'life-changing' experience.
The initial events happened in two distinct phases: first a three-day spiritual experience , and two weeks later, a longer-lasting condition that Krishnamurti and those around him referred to as the process.
This condition recurred, at frequent intervals and with varying intensity, until his death. According to witnesses, it started on 17 August when Krishnamurti complained of a sharp pain at the nape of his neck. Over the next two days the symptoms worsened, with increasing pain and sensitivity, loss of appetite, and occasional delirious ramblings. He seemed to lapse into unconsciousness but later recounted that he was very much aware of his surroundings, and that while in that state he had an experience of "mystical union".
The following day the symptoms and the experience intensified, climaxing with a sense of "immense peace". Later the process resumed intermittently, with varying degrees of pain, physical discomfort, and sensitivity, occasionally a lapse into a childlike state, and sometimes an apparent fading out of consciousness, explained as either his body giving in to pain or his mind "going off".
These experiences were accompanied or followed by what was interchangeably described as, "the benediction," "the immensity," "the sacredness," "the vastness" and, most often, "the otherness" or "the other. Sensitivity, not only to beauty but also to all other things. The blade of grass was astonishingly green; that one blade of grass contained the whole spectrum of colour; it was intense, dazzling and such a small thing, so easy to destroy It is strange how during one or two interviews that strength, that power filled the room.
It seemed to be in one's eyes and breath. It comes into being, suddenly and most unexpectedly, with a force and intensity that is quite overpowering and at other times it's there, quietly and serenely. But it's there, whether one wants it or not. There is no possibility of getting used to it for it has never been nor will it ever be Since the initial occurrences of , several explanations have been proposed for this experience of Krishnamurti's. The process at Ojai, whatever its cause or validity, was a cataclysmic milestone for Krishna.
Up until this time his spiritual progress, chequered though it might have been, had been planned with solemn deliberation by Theosophy's grandees. Something new had now occurred for which Krishna's training had not entirely prepared him. A burden was lifted from his conscience and he took his first step towards becoming an individual. In terms of his future role as a teacher, the process was his bedrock.
It had come to him alone and had not been planted in him by his mentors As news of these mystical experiences spread, rumours concerning the messianic status of Krishnamurti reached fever pitch as the Theosophical Society Convention was planned, on the 50th anniversary of its founding.
There were expectations of significant happenings. In related developments, prominent Theosophists and their factions within the Society were trying to position themselves favourably relative to the Coming , which was widely rumoured to be approaching. He stated that "Too much of everything is bad". Nitya's persistent health problems had periodically resurfaced throughout this time. On 13 November , at age 27, he died in Ojai from complications of influenza and tuberculosis. He had received their assurances regarding Nitya's health, and had come to believe that "Nitya was essential for [his] life-mission and therefore he would not be allowed to die," a belief shared by Annie Besant and Krishnamurti's circle.
The only person to whom he could talk openly, his best friend and companion. Over the next few years, Krishnamurti's new vision and consciousness continued to develop.
New concepts appeared in his talks, discussions, and correspondence, together with an evolving vocabulary that was progressively free of Theosophical terminology. 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 coerce people along a particular path. This is no magnificent deed, because I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not.
I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies. Following the dissolution, prominent Theosophists turned against Krishnamurti, including Leadbeater who is said to have stated, "the Coming had gone wrong.

The Mind Concept of Jiddu Krishnamurti In The Perspective of Anthropological Philosophy
For most of us freedom is an idea but not an actuality. When we talk about freedom or think about it, we want to be free outwardly, to do what we like, to travel, free to express ourselves in different ways, free to think what we like. The outward expression of freedom seems to be extraordinarily important, specially in countries where there is tyranny, dictatorship; and in those countries where outward freedom is possible one seeks more and more pleasure, more and more enjoyment, freedom to possess. And in the search for freedom, if one is at all serious, there is not only the outward expression of that freedom, which must, it seems to me, come from psychological freedom, inward freedom.
Jiddu Krishnamurti was a well-known Indian philosopher, speaker and writer. You are not your thoughts, you are the observer of and intelligence behind your thoughts. When you understand this, you are operating from higher consciousness. Life is a huge, beautiful mixing pot of experiences, moments and people. Your job while on this planet is to explore and embrace life for all that it is.

Миновав похожую на сад террасу и войдя в главное здание, она прошла проверку еще на двух внутренних контрольных пунктах и наконец оказалась в туннеле без окон, который вел в новое крыло. Вскоре путь ей преградила кабина голосового сканирования, табличка на которой гласила: АГЕНТСТВО НАЦИОНАЛЬНОЙ БЕЗОПАСНОСТИ (АНБ) ОТДЕЛЕНИЕ КРИПТОГРАФИИ ТОЛЬКО ДЛЯ СОТРУДНИКОВ С ДОПУСКОМ Вооруженный охранник поднял голову: - Добрый день, мисс Флетчер. - Привет, Джон. - Не ожидал, что вы придете. - Да, я .

Самообразование за тюремной решеткой. Хейл засмеялся. - Нет, серьезно, Сьюзан, тебе никогда не приходило в голову, что это все-таки возможно и что Танкадо действительно придумал невзламываемый алгоритм. Этот разговор был ей неприятен.

Беккер подтянул ноги, стараясь протиснуться в проем. Когда его торс уже свисал над лестницей, шаги послышались совсем. Он схватился руками за боковые стороны проема и, одним движением вбросив свое тело внутрь, тяжело рухнул на лестницу. Халохот услышал, как где-то ниже тело Беккера упало на каменные ступеньки, и бросился вниз, сжимая в руке пистолет. В поле его зрения попало окно.
Пока старик собирался с мыслями, Беккер не произнес ни слова. Тот огляделся вокруг, указательным пальцем разгладил усы и наконец заговорил: - Что вам нужно? - Он произносил английские слова немного в нос. - Сэр, - начал Беккер чуть громче, словно обращаясь к глуховатому человеку, - я хотел бы задать вам несколько вопросов.
