20 Jiddu Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life

There have been many philosophers that left their footprints on the earth. One of them is Jiddu Krishnamurthy. 
Krishnamurti is one of the greatest philosophers of the age ~Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama


Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-1
To have compassion means to have passion for all things, not just between two people, but for all human beings, for all things of the earth, the animals, the trees, everything the earth contains. When we have such compassion we will not despoil the earth as we are doing now, and we will have no wars~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-2

What brings understanding is love. When your heart is full, then you will listen to the teacher, to the beggar, to the laughter of children, to the rainbow, and to the sorrow of man. Under every stone and leaf, that which is eternal exists. But we do not know how to look for it. Our minds and hearts are filled with other things than understanding of "what is". Love and mercy, kindliness and generosity do not cause enmity. When you love, you are very near truth. For, love makes for sensitivity, for vulnerability. That which is sensitive is capable of renewal. Then truth will come into being. It cannot come if your mind and heart are burdened, heavy with ignorance and animosity~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-3

These are not my words; they are the words of the Master who taught me. Without Him I could have done nothing, but through His help I have set my feet upon the Path. You also desire to enter the same Path, so the words which He spoke to me will help you also, if you will obey them. It is not enough to say that they are true and beautiful; a man who wishes to succeed must do exactly what is said. To look at food and say that it is goodwill not satisfy a starving man; he must put forth his hand and eat. So to hear the Master's words is not enough, you must do what He says, attending to every word, taking every hint. If a hint is not taken, if a word is missed, it is lost forever; for He does not speak twice. Four qualifications there are for this pathway:Discrimination ,Desirelessness ,Good conduct Love~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


Hold back your mind from pride, for pride comes only from ignorance. The man who does not know thinks that he is great, that he has done this or that great thing; the wise man knows that only God is great, that all good work is done by God alone.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


Despair exists only when there is hope.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-4

    You can look only when the mind is completely quiet.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-5

    Meditation is one of the greatest arts in life — perhaps the greatest, and one cannot possibly learn it from anybody, that is the beauty of it. It has no technique and therefore no authority. When you learn about yourself, watch yourself, watch the way you walk, how you eat, what you say, the gossip, the hate, the jealousy — if you are aware of all that in yourself, without any choice, that is part of meditation.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-6

    You cannot depend upon anybody. There is no guide, no teacher, no authority. There is only you — your relationship with others and with the world — there is nothing else. When you realize this, it either brings great despair, from which comes cynicism and bitterness, or, in facing the fact that you and nobody else is responsible for the world and for yourself, for what you think, what you feel, how you act, all self-pity goes. Normally we thrive on blaming others, which is a form of self-pity.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-7

    That is the first thing to learn — not to seek. When you seek you are really only window-shopping. The question of whether or not there is a God or truth or reality, or whatever you like to call it, can never be answered by books, by priests, philosophers or saviours. Nobody and nothing can answer the question but you yourself and that is why you must know yourself. Immaturity lies only in total ignorance of self. To understand yourself is the beginning of wisdom.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-8
    Observe, and in that observation there is neither the "observer" nor the "observed" — there is only observation taking place. The "observer" exists only when you accumulate in the observation; when you say, "He is my friend because he has flattered me", or, "He is not my friend, because he has said something ugly about me, or something true which I do not like." That is accumulation through observation and that accumulation is the observer. When you observe without accumulation, then there is no judgement.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-9

    Meditation is a state of mind in which the operation and exercise of will is not.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-10

    The world is me and I am the world.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-11
    The brain is the source of thought. The brain is matter and thought is matter. Can the brain — with all its reactions and its immediate responses to every challenge and demand — can the brain be very still? It is not a question of ending thought, but of whether the brain can be completely still? This stillness is not physical death. See what happens when the brain is completely still.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-12

    A mind that is in meditation is concerned only with meditation, not with the meditator. The meditator is the observer, the senser, the thinker, the experiencer, and when there is the experiencer, the thinker, then he is concerned with reaching out, gaining, achieving, experiencing. And that thing which is timeless cannot be experienced. There is no experience at all. There is only that which is not nameable. ...~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-13
    Life as we live it is obviously very brutal, and makes us insensitive, dull, heavy, stupid, and so we may hope through ideas,through ideational mentation, to bring about a certain quality of sensitivity.… But even when we are sharpened and quickened intellectually by argument, by discussion, by reading, this does not actually bring about that quality of sensitivity. And you know all those people who are erudite, who read, who theorize, who can discuss brilliantly, are extraordinarily dull people. So I think sensitivity, which destroys mediocrity, is very important to understand. Because most of us are becoming, I am afraid, more mediocre. We are not using that word in any derogative sense at all, but merely observing the fact of mediocrity in the sense of being average, fairly well educated, earning a livelihood and perhaps capable of clever discussion; but this leaves us still bourgeois, mediocre, not only in our attitudes but in our activities.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-14
    Meditation is the emptying of the mind of all thought, for thought and feeling dissipate energy. They are repetitive, producing mechanical activities which are a necessary part of existence. But they are only part, and thought and feeling cannot possibly enter into the immensity of life. Quite a different approach is necessary, not the path of habit, association and the known; there must be freedom from these. Meditation is the emptying of the mind of the known. It cannot be done by thought or by the hidden prompting of thought, nor by desire in the form of prayer, nor through the self-effacing hypnotism of words, images, hopes, and vanities. All these have to come to an end, easily, without effort and choice, in the flame of awareness.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-15
    No description can ever describe the origin. The origin is nameless; the origin is absolutely quiet, it is not whirring about making noise. Creation is something that is most holy, that is the most sacred thing in life, and if you have made a mess of your life, change it. Change it today, not tomorrow. If you are uncertain, find out why and be certain. If your thinking is not straight, think straight, logically, Unless all that is prepared, all that is settled, you cannot enter into this world, into the world of creation. It ends. ~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-16
    The very nature of intelligence is sensitivity, and this sensitivity is love. Without this intelligence there can be no compassion. Compassion is not the doing of charitable acts or social reform; it is free from sentiment, romanticism and emotional enthusiasm. It is as strong as death. It is like a great rock, immovable in the midst of confusion, misery and anxiety. Without this compassion no new culture or society can come into being. Compassion and intelligence walk together; they are not separate. Compassion acts through intelligence. It can never act through the intellect. Compassion is the essence of the wholeness of life.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-17
    . When the mind seeks truth, it is seeking its own self-projection, not truth. After all, an ideal is self-projected; it is fictitious, unreal. What is real is what is, not the opposite. But a mind that is seeking reality, seeking God, is seeking the known. When you think of God, your God is the projection of your own thought, the result of social influences. You can think only of the known; you cannot think of the unknown, you cannot concentrate on truth. ~Jiddu Krishnamurthy


    Krishnamurti Quotes To Enlighten Your Mind And Life-18
    When death comes, it does not ask your permission; it comes and takes you; it destroys you on the spot. In the same way, can you totally drop hate, envy, pride of possession, attachment to beliefs, to opinions, to ideas, to a particular way of thinking? Can you drop all that in an instant? There is no “how to drop it”, because that is only another form of continuity. To drop opinion, belief, attachment, greed, or envy is to die — to die every day, every moment. If there is the coming to an end of all ambition from moment to moment, then you will know the extraordinary state of being nothing, of coming to the abyss of an eternal movement, as it were, and dropping over the edge — which is death. I want to know all about death, because death may be reality; it may be what we call God — that most extraordinary something that lives and moves and yet has no beginning and no end.~Jiddu Krishnamurthy

    About J.Krishnamurthy

    When I was doing some research on him, I was amazed to found that some considered him as "Buddha".
    Buddha literally means one who knows the absolute knowledge. He never read any books about religion and old scriptures. His way and preception to life was something deep and extra ordinary. His usage of words is not that easy to understand. There were people who would tell he was not a great teacher, But it's more likely that were they good enough to understand his words with that deepness of thoughts he had.

    One of his famous books is The First and Last Freedom.
    You may buy the boom from below link
    The First and Last Freedom

    Over his lifetime Krishnamurthy was involved in discussions with well known Hindu and Buddhist leaders and scholars, including Dalai Lama. Some of these discussions were later published as chapters in his books. He influenced not only people in mainstream religious establishments in India but also people in various fields,. some of the famous people who got influenced by his thoughts were Toni PackerAchyut Patwardhan, Dada Dharmadhikari.[and Bruce Lee.
    He might have left the earth but his work and teaching have been persisted over the years.
    His thoughts are carried in digital prints, books, videos, audios by major retailers across the world.
    In 2013,  The 2013 music track by German electronic music group Tube and Berger featured the voice of Krishnamurti in their hit track 'Imprint of Pleasure' from their album Pleasure Dip EP.
