Why do we seek a method or technique? - 21 August 1949. • The problems of life do not demand a method, because they are so vital and alive that if we approach with a method we totally misunderstand and don't adequately meet that problem. • Where there is efficiency there is ruthlessness. • The means and the end are not separate. • Reality or God is something that cannot come by a technique, a means, or through a long, determined practice and discipline. • Aloneness implies no means. You are not alone when you have a means. • Q: What is the right relationship, if any, between the individual and the collective, the mass? • Q: What is the significance of pain and suffering?
Jiddu Krishnamurti (/?d??du?kr??n??m??rti/; 12 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was an Indian philosopher, speaker and writer. In his early life he was groomed to be the new World Teacher but later rejected this mantle and withdrew from the Theosophy organization behind it. His interests included psychological revolution, the nature of mind, meditation, inquiry, human relationships, and bringing about radical change in society. He stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being and emphasised that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social.
