CASS: The Neotheosophical "Christ"

Mar 09, 2006 10:39 AM
by carlosaveline cardoso aveline




Dear Cass,


I was a "Krishnamurtian" for years, I must admit.

Untill I found his personal worship as "Christ" was too much and I decided to investigate his personal emotional complications, his confuse love affair with Rosalind Rajagopal, etc.

Krishnamurti does not work with most basic concepts like karma and reincarnation. He despises the manasic principle, where Antahkarana exists.

His books may help with some meditative introspection. But there is a price in that in the narrowing of the mind.

On the other hand, Ramana is far deeper in introspection than Krishnamurti and has a healthy philosophy, besides having led an uncomplicated, pure personal life from birth to death.

Krishnamurti lived all kinds of psychological/ermotional/family/lawsuit conflicts, while we Adyar theosophists around the world could swear he was a Brahmachary!

His close friends, Ms. Radha Burnier included, kept silence.

It all went public only after his death. When I talked to Ms. Radha personally about that, in August 1995, she confirmed all of Krishnamurti's complications, yet she blamed... the husband!

That is, according to Krishnamurtians, the fault and the responsibility for those very personal and mundane emotional conflicts was Mr. Rajagopal, and not his wife Rosalind, nor Mr. Krishnamurti.

Kind of funny.

And that comes from "Christ".

Best regards, Carlos.

Hello Carlos
I have been on a number of Krishnamurtian groups in the past, and most believe as you said, that the "I" is the cause of all suffering. I can see how this can lead to mental imbalances.
However, I didn't get that from Krishnamurti, the message I came away with was that the "I" had to be understood, unpacked if you liked, reflected on, without judgement and eventually brought to a state of submission or quiet by the higher self. He advocated this in a "revolutionary instantaneous event," whereas I found I needed many years to go through the accumulations that my ego had stored and why those accumulations from the past, were continuing to impact on my life. That, along with Gurdgieff's teachings helped me to understand what the "I" was all about, and how for the most part it runs us on auto pilot as many are asleep to its control and need to be "in charge".

Dear Cass,

Yet the Advaita system teachs the seven principles/ levels of consciousness
pretty much as HPB did (not a coincidence), while Krishnamurti never
understood, much less taught the seven principles.

For instance, Ramana Maharshi taught them in the 20th century.

Seven principles are essential, as by understanding them you have the key
of the correlation between the micro (a human individual) and the macro
(solar system and the universe).

Krishnamurti was rather shallow with his doctrine according to which the "I"
is bad.

The importance of the correlation man/universe explains why studying the
"Secret Doctrine".
It is a form of Jnana Yoga.

We are a summary of the universe, and the cosmos is an amplified picture of
each one of us.

A mirror of one's soul.


Best regards, Carlos.
