Krishnamurti

This mindrolling business is all about coming unstuck and mugging the clinging mind.  The world champion at doing just that was the incomparable Krishnamurti, a teacher who never wanted to be any kind of guru.  His words penetrated right through conventional thought, and his razor edged insights stimulated a sense of fundamental and mental reality. His descriptions of non-conditioned awareness are like cool water, washing away disturbing emotions and fear-based illusions.  I (David) actually met him after a rare talk he gave at Brandeis University, on October 18th 1968.  His words were so firm and so dismissive of cant and rant that it was a stunning healing experience.  I sat to the side of him.  He looked to me like a seventy year old Indian Paul McCartney.  He seemed chiseled out of porcelain, delicate and massively sensitive.  His awareness of awareness wiped fear out and replaced it with love of the present and the present of life itself.Click Here for the lectures.
