A Jewel On A Silver Platter
Remembering Jiddu Krishnamurti
Jiddu Krishnamurti's life reads like a legend from mythology! The mystery of his existence poses a challenge before each one of us to discover for ourselves the state of consciousness with which he actually lived and which he tried his best to invoke in us.
At the end of a hectic day today, I have been just hearing Prof. Krishna’s
lecture … Really a fascinating talk and my thoughts immediately resonated with the views so lucidly presented by Prof. Krishna, more so because I had been earlier exposed to the similar ideas and writings of J. Krishnamurti through David Bohm with whom I had worked during part of my post- doctoral period in UK, and Bohm was a great admirer of Krishnamurti’s ideas.
In particular, Prof. Krishna’s talk beautifully brings out the essence of the key notions of the ordered state of consciousness, what is meant by freeing mind from illusion, the deep concept of religious truth and in what precise sense it complements scientific truth. I am struck by the simplicity of the presentation by Prof. Krishna, blending seamlessly with the profundity of the underpinning ideas. I would like to again enjoy listening to this talk in order to further absorb its rich content. And, of course, I remain much eager to hear his latest talk after it is uploaded.
I cannot put into words the impact of the dialogue with the three scientists. Why is it that what K says is always absolute and explosive?
