A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on belief, christianity, concern, country, islam, mankind, nationality, politics, religion, rest, separation, traditions, trying, understanding, and violence

When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is trying to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.

J. Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986)
