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.
Here are Krishnamurti’s thoughts for perhaps why this took place in him in his own words…
“Why should all this happen to us? No explanation is good enough, though one can invent a dozen. But certain things are fairly clear.
- One must be wholly “indifferent” to its coming and going.
- There must be no desire to continue the experience or store it away in memory.
- There must be a certain physical sensitivity, a certain indifference to comfort.
- There must be a self-critical humorous approach.
- You can also add love to this list but it is beyond love.
- And you can add also a still, quiet brain.”
(5 and 6 he adds later in the page)
Krishnamurti also says, “It must come and you can never go after it. Do what you will.” So there you have it. His take on what he believes might have led to his enlightenment and Kundalini Awakening. To me this list can somewhat be summed up by the following 2 phrases. First, is what I call the first law of Tantra, “Whatever comes let it come, whatever goes let it go.” Which correlates to items 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Krishnamurti’s list above. Second, is the phrase, “All you can do is prepare the garden, the flower must bloom on its own.” Which correlates to items 5 and 6 of his list. If you can live by these 2 rules, remarkable dimensions will open up for you.
