A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti

Until a radical change takes place and we wipe out all nationalities, all ideologies, all religious divisions, and establish a global relationship - psychologically first, inwardly before organizing the outer - we shall go on with wars.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on earth, learning, lies, and world

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.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on adoption, destiny, education, family, future, preparation, presidency, questions, society, spirituality, teachers, and truth

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born on 11 May, 1895, at Madanapalle, a small village in south India. Soon after moving to Madras with his family in 1909, Krishnamurti was adopted by Mrs. Annie Besant, President of the Theosophical Society. She was convinced that he was to become a great spiritual teacher. Three years later she took him to England to be educated in preparation for his future role. An organization was set up to promote this role. In 1929, after many years of questioning himself and the destiny imposed upon him, Krishnamurti disbanded this organisation, turning away all followers saying: Truth is a pathless land. . . .

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on creativity, decisions, learning, men, simplicity, and yielding

The Creative knows the great beginnings. The Receptive completes the finished things. The Creative is decided and therefore shows to men the easy. The Receptive is yielding and therefore shows to men the simple. Learning is movement from moment to moment.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on concern, emptiness, and mind

As long as the mind is seeking to fill itself, it will always be empty. When the mind is no longer concerned with filling its own emptiness, then only does that emptiness cease to be.
