The Pathless Land

It’s been decades since I last read Jiddu Krishnamurti’s books, but they are still around and well worth perusing.

J. Krishnamurti was an astute and interesting soul. Discovered at adolescence in south India by the occultist Charles Webster Leadbeater of The Theosophical Society who upon seeing him sitting on a bench near their compound, recognized “the purity of his aura,” and approached him to inquire of his origins and intentions.  

Willingly Krishnamurti  was then unofficially adopted by the society of Theosophists and culturally cultivated to become their own messianic spokesperson, which he later denounced and declined to be.

But by that time in his mid-30’s he had developed his extreme spiritual gifts and had indeed become a premier philosopher and intuitive in his own right, who then toured the world giving lectures on all aspects of the ‘LIFE’ experience.  (My kind of stuff.)

His books and memoirs are always interesting and thought provoking, so just to sample his documented comments, here is an excerpt on TRUTH from his parting lecture with the Theosophical Society in 1929:

“I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path. … This is no magnificent deed, because I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not. I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies.” (Wikipedia)  [64]
