Truth is a pathless land

Jiddu Krishnamurti 1895-1986

Jiddu Krishnamurti was a philosopher, writer and international lecturer.

Krishnamurti said: "I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect."

Jiddu Krishnamurti was free from conditioning influences of the different systems of philosophy, religious dogmatism, political ideology, intellectual speculation and cultural bias. When man becomes aware of the movement of his own thoughts he will see the division between the thinker and the thought... the observer and the observed

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born on May 12, 1895 about 250 km north of Madras (Chennai) India. Krishnamurti was raised within the Theosophical Society to be an incarnation of Maitreya, the messianic Buddha.

In 1929 Jiddu Krishnamurti, tapped to be the messianic "World Teacher", shocked the Theosophy movement by dissolving the Order of the Star, the organisation established to support him and began to emerge as one of the 20th century's most iconoclastic and influential teachers. He repudiated not only all connections with organized religions and ideology, but denied his own spiritual authority as well.

Travelling constantly, he also rejected ties to any country, nationality or culture. Although he wrote and lectured widely, he accepted no fees for his talks, nor royalties on his books and recordings.

Krishnamurti's aim was to set humanity free. He maintained that the individual is freed by becoming aware of their own psychological conditioning, and that this awakening will enable them to give love to another.
