Re: Theos-World Re: Krishnamurtian Dogma?

I tend to agree with Morten, in that Krishnamurti's latter teachings were the recycling of the Advaita system.  However, I believe, in the early days he did contribute towards humanity in exposing the emotional baggage that we carry with us, and how important it is to recognize this, without judgement, in order to see ourselves as we are.  I certainly got much out of the First and Last Freedom.

Dear Cass,

I know next to nothing about Gurdgieff.

But a long standing leader of the Adyar Society gave me an image to define 
Krishnamurti with few words: he is like the typical Indian Swami, who goes 
about hammering one sole point, surrounded by his own unconditional 
supporters and worshippers. The main role of these followers  is to 
endlessly repeat the Swami's words,  while they try to hipnotize themselves 
and others with these same unchanging words/ideas.


Best regards.
