Mind is repetitive, mind always moves in circles. Mind is a mechanism: you feed it with knowledge, it repeats the same knowledge, it goes on chewing the same knowledge again and again. No-mind is clarity, purity, innocence. No-mind is the real way to live, the real way to know, the real way to be.

Political power is ugly. Power over others is ugly. It is inhuman, because to have power over somebody means to reduce that person into a thing. He becomes your possession.

When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind. ― Jiddu Krishnamurti

Man is born as a seed; he can become a flower, he may not. It all depends on you, what you do with yourself; it all depends on you whether you grow or you don`t. It is your choice and each moment the choice has to be faced; each moment you are on the crossroads.

The greatest obsession that humanity suffers is of `that which should be`. It is a kind of madness. The really healthy person has no concern with that which should be. His whole concern is the immediate, that which is. And you will be surprised: if you enter into the immediate, you will find the ultimate in it. If you move into that which is close by, you will find all the distant stars in it. If you move in the present moment, the whole eternity is in your hands.

And I am against plastic flowers. The real flowers have many differences; the plastic flowers are permanent the plastic love will be permanent. The real flower is not permanent, it is changing moment to moment. Today it is there dancing in the wind and in the sun and in the rain. Tomorrow you will not be able to find it, it has disappeared just as mysteriously as it has appeared. Real love is like a real flower.

There has never been a person like you before, there is not anybody else like you right now in the whole world, and there will never be anybody like you. Just see how much respect God has paid to you. You are a masterpiece unrepeatable, incomparable, utterly unique. Even the hardest heart, the rock-like heart, will start melting in gratitude.

Responsibility is not a game. It is one of the most authentic way of living dangerous too.

The ordinary man is living a very abnormal life, because his values are upside down. Money is more important than meditation; logic is more important than love; mind is more important than heart; power over others is more important than power over one`s own being. Mundane things are more important than finding some treasures which death cannot destroy.

Virtue without meditation is an imposition, a forced imposition. Virtue without meditation is repressive. Virtue without meditation is pseudo. Virtue without meditation is just a facade: you can deceive others, but how can you deceive yourself? With meditation there arises a totally different kind of virtue: a natural virtue, a spontaneous virtue.

You see the people ― they are miserable because they have compromised on every point, and they cannot forgive themselves because they have compromised. They know that they could have dared, but they proved cowards. In their own eyes they have fallen, they have lost self-respect. That`s what compromise does.

The majority consists of fools, utter fools. Beware of the majority. If so many people are following, that is enough a proof that something is wrong. Truth happens to individuals, not to crowds.

Only silence communicates the truth as it is.

To know that all has failed is the beginning of a new journey. To know that "All that I have achieved is lost" is the beginning of a new search for something that cannot be lost. When one is utterly disillusioned with the world and all its successes, only then one becomes spiritual.

Man lives such a dull and drab life that he wants some sensation. Those who are a little wiser, they read scientific fiction or detective stories. Those who are not so wise, they read spiritual fiction.

Life is a love affair, it is poetry, it is music. Don`t ask ugly questions like, "What is the purpose?" because the moment you ask it, you disconnect yourself from life. Life cannot be bridged with philosophical questions. Philosophy has to be put aside.

The intelligent man`s way is the way of the heart, because the heart is not interested in words; it is interested only in the juice that comes in the containers of the words. It does not collect containers, it simply drinks the juice and throws away the container. The mind does just the opposite: it throws away the juice and collects the containers. Containers look beautiful, and a great collection of containers makes a man a great intellectual giant.

Only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core into the other person without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without creating "the other," reducing the other into a thing, and without becoming addicted with the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.

Use every opportunity in life for raising your intelligence, your consciousness. Ordinarily what we are doing is we are making every opportunity to create a hell for us. Only you suffer. And because of your suffering,you make others suffer. And when so many people are living together,and if they all create suffering for each other, it goes on multiplying. That`s how the whole world has become a hell.

Greed simply means you are feeling a deep emptiness and you want to fill it with anything possible; it doesn`t matter what it is. And once you understand it, then you have nothing to do with greed. You have something to do with your coming into communion with the whole so the inner emptiness disappears. And with it, all greed disappears. That does not mean that you start living naked; that simply means you do not live just to collect things.

And the only way to be in contact with life, the only way not to lag behind life, is to have a heart which is not guilty, a heart which is innocent.
Forget all about what you have been told ? what has to be done and what has not to be done nobody else can decide it for you.

Life is a river. Don`t push it and you will not be miserable.

Don`t be bothered by perfection. Replace the word `perfection` by `totality.` Don`t think in terms that you have to be perfect, think in terms that you have to be total. Totality will give you a different dimension.

Real life has to be lived without habits. You have heard, again and again you have been told, "Drop bad habits." I tell you: Drop habit as such! There are not good and bad habits: all habits are bad. Remain without habits, live without habits; then you live moment-to-moment out of freedom.

Loneliness is when you hanker for something, some occupation; when you hanker for the other and you miss the other, that is loneliness. And when you have started enjoying it, the beauty, the austere beauty of being alone, the silence, the stillness, the joy of just being, breathing in the sun, just sitting under a tree doing nothing, listening to the birds, just being utterly herenow, and a great joy arises...aloneness.

Give what you need most!

Whenever you judge anything, try a small experiment: try to find out who has given you this idea. And if you go deeply into it, you will be surprised: you can even hear your mother saying it, or your father, or your teachers in the school. You can hear their voices still there resounding in your memory, but it is not yours. And whatsoever is not yours is ugly; and whatsoever is yours is beautiful, it has grace.

Your heart understands what your head cannot yet conceive;
trust your heart.

There are universal human needs, and nothing works well long in the human experience that ignores them!

Life is a verb. Life is not a noun, it is really "living" not "life." It is not "love", it is "loving". It is not "relationship", it is "relating". It is not a "song", it is "singing". It is not a "dance", it is "dancing".
See the difference, savor the difference.

Religion is not something to be believed in, but something to be lived, something to be experienced...not a belief in your mind but the flavor of your whole being.

Don`t blame others. Whatsoever they are, they are. In fact, all the cunningness of the world and the trickery of the world helps you to be aware. If this world cannot help you to be aware; then what world will ever be able to make you aware, to be cautious? It is a good world it gives you a tremendous challenge to be cautious.

Meditation is not a solution of any problem in particular; it solves nothing. It simply helps you to get rid of the mind, the problem-creator. It simply helps you to slip out of the mind like a snake slips out of the old skin. Once you know you are not the mind the great transcendence has happened.
Suddenly all problems become insignificant; slowly, slowly they evaporate.
You are left with a profound peace; a great silence prevails.
This silence is the solution. This peace is the answer, the answer of all answers.

Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you, I am I. I have to contribute my potential to life; you have to contribute your potential to life. I have to discover my own being; you have to discover your own being.

There is nothing more sacred than love and laughter,
and there is nothing more prayerful than playfulness.

Laugh and be well!

There is no heaven and there is no hell! They are not geographical, they are part of your psychology. They are psychological. To live the life of spontaneity, truth, love, beauty is to live in heaven. To live the life of hypocrisy, lies, compromises,to live according to others, is to live in hell. To live in freedom is heaven,and to live in bondage is hell.

Be less of a judge and you will be surprised when you become a witness and you don`t judge yourself, you stop judging others too. And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding.

Be life-affirmative. Life is synonymous with God. You can drop the word God - life is God. Live with reverence, with great respect...gratitude. You have not earned the life, it has been a sheer gift from the beyond. Feel thankful and prayerful, and take as many bites of it as possible and chew well and digest well.
