    Krishnamurti - On Love

    In this torn desert world there is no love because pleasure and desire play the greatest roles, yet without love your daily life has no meaning. And you cannot have love if there is no beauty. Beauty is not something you see - not a beautiful tree, a beautiful picture, a...

    If stillness to you is only a door.

    . "What lies beyond can be found only if the mind is still. There may be something or there may be nothing at all. So the only thing that is important is for the mind to be still. Again, if you are concerned with what lies beyond, then you are not looking at what the state of...

    -Answer to a Little Boy-

    Student: Why do we all want to live? JK: Don't laugh because a little boy asks, when life is so transient, why do we crave to live? Isn't it very sad for a little boy to ask that question? That means he has seen for himself that everything passes away. Birds die, leaves fall...

    Thought Is The Wrong Instrument Of Living; Think About It?

    Does the Soul Survive After Death?

    Questioner: Does the soul survive after death? Krishnamurti: If you really want to know, how are you going to find out? By reading what Shankara, Buddha or Christ has said about it? By listening to your own particular leader or saint? They may all be totally wrong. Are you...

    The Tumor That Thinks

    Do other species cherish the wonders of Earth and cosmos, the wonders of fellow creatures, of other species, the wonder of living perpetually at the very pinnacle of evolution?   If the other species do cherish these wonders, then what is knowledge worth? Yesterday I...
