Jiddu Krishnamurti 1895-1986
Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986) was an Indian writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual subjects such as psychological revolution, the nature of the mind, human relationships, and bringing positive change in society.
Jiddu Krishnamurti was free from conditioning influences of the different systems of philosophy, religious dogmatism, political ideology, intellectual speculation and cultural bias.
Krishnamurti maintained that truth is a pathless land and no one can lead another to the truth. At the most Master can point the way but ultimately it is the individual himself who has to walk the path. Everyone has to make his own path and seek the truth himself.
Travelling constantly, he rejected ties to any country, nationality, culture, religion and ideology. He accepted no fees for his talks, nor royalties on his books and recordings. He denied his own spiritual authority.
- In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.
- One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.
