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.
