“One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

He answers such questions as “What is the significance of life?”, “How do I live life to the full?”, ”Who are you?” and “What do you want?”

“Tell your friend that in his death, a part of you dies and
goes with him. Wherever he goes, you also go. He will
not be alone.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

J. Krishnamurti on the significance of life is living. If we have to find the purpose of life, we first have to find out what we mean by “life” and what we mean by “purpose” – not merely the dictionary meaning, but the significance we give to those words. Life implies everyday action, everyday thought, everyday feeling. It implies the struggle, the pains, the anxieties, the worries.

“If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

All of that is life, not just one layer of consciousness, but the total process of existence which is our relationship to things, to people, to ideas. One has to search his own meaning of life, do not follow any Spiritual teacher, everyone has their version for purpose of life, and can be different for you. Seek yourself in daily lives, watch be an observer in daily activities of life. The most important is not the conclusion but the assertions in life.

“The more you know yourself, the more clarity there is. Self-knowledge has no end – you don’t come to an achievement, you don’t come to a conclusion. It is an endless river.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Truth is the Unknown -and the mind that is seeking Truth that shall never find it.

“Life has no beginning and no end; it is both death and life; it is the green leaf, and the withered leaf that is driven by the wind; it is love and its immeasurable beauty, the sorrow of solitude and the bliss of aloneness. It cannot be measured, nor can the mind discover it.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti
Meaning of life Jiddu Krishnamurti

“If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

“The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

“You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti

“It is only when the mind is free from the old that it meets everything anew, and in that there is joy.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti
