Krishnamurti does a very thorough treatment of this topic and below I would like to share these thoughts of his with you.

Famous Jiddu Krishnamurti Quotes: A Revolutionary Philosopher on Spiritual Matters

Today we will share some wonderful Krishnamurti Quotes with you to get you inspired for the week ahead. These quotes are designed to remind us of the deeper truths of life, as well as inspire and uplift you.

Krishnamurti was a sickly child, discovered by a prominent member of the Theosophical Society at age 14 and perceived as being a future world leader. He was tutored and schooled by the society into his mid-twenties. But after an intense awakening experience of his own, he broke with the Society, saying that ‘truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect.’

Magical Words for Meditation by J. Krishnamurti

Words on Meditation

J. Krishnamurti on Meditation

One profound advantage to living in an ashram or monastery is that you are continuously reminded to meditate and focus on spiritual evolution, and you are kept inspired by the environment, teachers and fellow aspirants. But for those of us who live out in the world and are surrounded by family, work, school, kids, bills, society, etc., inspiration can sometimes be hard to come by and the zest for Enlightenment and the Truth can come and go.

What is Meditation by J. Krishnamurti

What is Meditation

J. Krishnamurti Quotes

It has been some time since we discussed the thoughts of the great master meditator and teacher, J. Krishnamurti.  Below is a quote from him, which I think gives one a great deal of insight into what meditation is and how to practice it.  This type of meditation, the only type Krishnamurti would consider as meditation, is along the lines of insight meditation or jyana yoga.

J. Krishnamurti Meets the Pope

J. Krishnamurti Quote

Jiddu Krishnamurti on Being Nobody 

These days the Pope is visiting the US and it reminded me of a dialogue between Krishnamurti and the then Pope, when they had once met.  I don’t recall the dialogue exactly or where I had read it, but it went something like this…

The Pope upon meeting Krishnamurti indicated that he had heard of him as the famous Indian philosopher and then proceeded to ask Krishnamurti exactly who he was?

To which Krishnamurti had replied, "I am nobody." 

I don’t recall there was anything more in that dialogue.

In continuing to try to bring you some of the more uncommon teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti – one of the more remarkable spiritual teacher’s of our modern era – I thought the following would be of interest to those passionate about enlightenment and Kundalini Awakening.  The following are a list of “prerequisites” that Krishnamurti came up with when trying to determine why he had been blessed with his Kundalini Awakening and enlightenment experiences.  He, of course, calls what he underwent “the process”, but from the perspective of Yoga, “the process” would be called a Kundalini Awakening.  You can get more information on Jiddu Krishnamurti and his teachings at the Krishnamurti Foundation of America Website.

J. Krishnamurti and The Soul

Quote From J. Krishnamurti:

“…is there an area in the human brain, or in the very nature and structure of a human being, not merely in the outer world of his activities but inwardly, deep in the vast quiet recesses of his own brain, something that is not the outcome of memory, not the movement of a continuity?”… “There is most certainly, definitely, an area where the past doesn’t cast a shadow, where time, the past or the future or the present has no meaning.”… “You can’t ascend through knowledge; there must be an end to knowledge for the new to be.  New is a word for something which has never been before.  And that area cannot be understood or grasped by words or symbols; it is beyond all remembrances.”
