Biography

JK Krishnamurti

Teaching Style:
Investigative Talks and Discussions.

Commentary:
Krishnamurti’s style was to generally engage his listeners as they discussed a particular subject, and try to guide them along with him. He didn’t want to just ‘talk to people’ – he wanted them to fully understand what was being discussed. So his approach was to go slowly and carefully, as they delved into the psychological intricacies of any subject matter. For this reason, he can appeal to people with a Beginner – Advanced understanding.

Jiddu Krishnamurti appeared in India in 1895 and departed in the United States in 1986.

He spoke throughout his life in many parts of the world to large audiences as well as with numerous individuals, including writers, scientists, philosophers and educators. Asked to describe what lay at the heart of his teaching, he said,

“Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot come to it through any organisation, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, nor through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection…”

Krishnamurti was concerned with all humanity and stated repeatedly that he held no nationality or belief and belonged to no particular group or culture. In the latter part of his life, he travelled mainly between the schools he had founded in India, Britain and the United States, schools that educate for the total understanding of man and the art of living. He stressed that only this profound understanding can create a new generation that will live in peace.

Quotes:

“Truth is a pathless land”

“If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem”

“So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it”
