Self Knowledge cannot be gathered through anybody, any books, any confession, any psychology.

Summing up is a verbal process by the thinker. Krishnamurti is beyond such activity.

No one gets it like they want it in this material world but that's alright, it doesn't last forever. So why settle for finding some meaning within the shadows on the wall of Plato's Cave, when you can walk out of there, and into The light? Only question is~~~who does the walking?

The teachings are about awareness and understanding.

K's words are a way of life. Everything he says is exacly what I think down deep. He was and is a wonderful teacher and an iconic example of how one should live and be in the world today.

Find out what it means to be human, on the most basic fundamental level. Don't simply be content to repeat K'isms.

On the fateful day I swam the sea at Elliots Beach, Madras/Chennai 1972, I came across this gentle soul called JK talking to thousands in a park quietening the restless minds,I had no question to ask but only irritation over the exhibitionism of the people around me,they did not sound genuine inquirers to my ears,they were testing the patience of this saint of a man called J.Krishnamurti Then on, changed my life for the better or the worse, still I cannot fathom or evaluate....

Krishnamurti substantiates non-duality like no one else. Listening to him heals you, if you don't make it into a ideology.
His message is not an injunction to be "in the now" or "good", which is still duality, control. It is a clear description of the horrors of being conditioned by dos and donts and the ensuing conflict.
A conditioned mind is limited. It can't solve human problems. That is what is wrong with the world, and that is why Krishnamurti is relevant not only for religious seekers, but for everybody.

K was passionate about us discovering truth for ourselves. To be free to look and discover it one first has to understand one's own conditioning and the limits of thought.

El pensar es mecanico, todo lo que pensemos es solo resultado de lo mecanico., todo esto es preconcebido., y que pasa si rompemos con el pensamiento?
si nuestra vida no esta regida por el pensamiento?
Libertad, una inmensa libertad infinita, una puerta abierta al infinito!
La vida con libertad es un infinito de posibilidades!
Al morir el pensamiento!, nace el Amor!

Thougth is mecanical, every thing we can thougt is only the result of mecanical processes., all this is preconceived .,and, what happens if we break with though?
if our lives are not commanded by thougth?
Freedom, and inmense and infinite freedom, an open door to infinity!
To live a life with freedom is an infinite world of posibilities!
When thought dies!, love births!

Negation - through understanding - of the disorder of humanity - which we all share, and for which we are all responsible.

Humans are conditioned to search the known for the origins of the unknown as permanence, and this destroys the truth of existence.

Michael Berry

He's all about life, death, love, beauty, relationships and the unknown.

K wanted to end the misery, conflict of modern humans and show them that love is within reach of every human being.

Krishnamurti seems to be unique in the quality of the inner life he led. It is hard to find any contradiction between him and his teachings. There is something deeply revolutionary about the man.

"To be a light to oneself." These are clearly not words of my own. But the words don't matter. The light matters. To find out why we live in darkness is only possible when we look at that darkness through our own eyes.

Observe yourself along your daily life, intensely, deeply, with no interference of your own past experiences, nor with your judgments or ideals, and with an enquiry attitude. Whith all your available energy and attention.

Deeply moving in a personal way, partly understood, partly as a certain fragrance that cannot be identified.

I'd sum up this way, ....... :

He guides you; but he is not your guide. You are his disciple; but he is not your Guru.He teaches you; but he is not your teacher. He is a thinker; but not from his thoughts.

He repeats what he has spoken earlier; but it is never old but always new. He walks alone; but together with the rest of mankind.
