A Quote by U.G. Krishnamurti on u g, krishnamurti, understanding, life, self, search, realization, enlightenment, freedom, ego, and meditation

The search ends with the realization that there is no such thing as enlightenment. By searching, you want to be free from the self, but whatever you are doing to free yourself from the self is the self. How can I make you understand this simple thing? There is no 'how'. If I tell you that, it will only add more momentum to that (search), strengthen that momentum. That is the question of all questions: "How, how, how?"

A Quote by U.G. Krishnamurti on u g, krishnamurti, understanding, question, search, realization, and language

You know, this dialogue is only helpful when we come, both of us, to a point and realize that no dialogue is possible, that no dialogue is necessary. When I say 'understanding', 'seeing', they mean something different to me. Understanding is a state of being where the question isn't there any more; there is nothing there that says "now I understand!" -- that's the basic difficulty between us. By understanding what I am saying, you are not going to get anywhere.

A Quote by U.G. Krishnamurti on u g, krishnamurti, understanding, questions, search, realization, language, seeker, and answers

The questioner has to come to an end.  It is the questioner that creates the answer; and the questioner comes into being from the answer, otherwise there is no questioner.

A Quote by U.G. Krishnamurti on u g, krishnamurti, understanding, life, death, soul, knowledge, questions, and answers

You have no way of knowing anything about your death, now or at the end of your so-called life.  Unless knowledge, the continuity of knowledge, comes to an end, death cannot take place.  You want to know something about death: you want to make that a part of your knowledge.  But death is not something mysterious; the ending of that knowledge is death.  What do you think will continue after death?  What is there while you are living?  Where is the entity there?  There is nothing there -- no soul -- there is only this question about after death.  The question has to die now to find the answer -- your answer; not my answer -- because the question is born out of the assumption, the belief, that there is something to continue after death.

A Quote by U.G. Krishnamurti on enlightenment, consciousness, brilliant critical, direct pointing to the naked reslity, and truth u g krishnamurtiultimate reality

We are using the neurons, our identity, to constantly maintain our identity. Whether you are awake, asleep, or dreaming, this process is carried on. But, it is wearing you out.That is why I say the tragedy that is facing mankind is not AIDS or cancer, but Alzthiemer's disease.

A Quote by U.G. Krishnamurti on self, ego, practice, and meditation

All your experiences, all your meditations, all your prayer, all that you do, is self-centred. It is strengthening the self, adding momentum, gathering momentum, so it is taking you in the opposite direction. Whatever you do to be free from the self also is a self-centred activity.
