tells people not to think of future lives.
Cass: Anand what is the point of thinking on future lives. It is just a waste of mental energy and will not differ unless according to Krishnamurti there is a radical change in thinking.
HPB's quotation clearly tells about existence of the path and Masters.
Krishnamurti rejected both the concepts.
Cass: He never denied the existence of the path and Masters but stated that at our stage of development leaning on a Master will not accomplish anything. It is the same as believing that we will be saved by Christ. A waste of time. Theosophists get all wrankled about it because they hold on so dearly to their theosophical path that any criticism of it, challenges their belief system. Only when we as Christians realised that the path of Christendom was a hoax. Better to have had no path than a hoaxed path, which many are. Everyman finds his own path when the time is right.
"There is a road, steep and thorny, beset with perils of every kind,
but yet a road, and it leads to the very heart of the Universe. I can
tell you how to find those [Masters] who will show you the secret
gateway that opens inward only, and closes fast behind the neophyte
for evermore. There is no danger that dauntless courage cannot
conquer; there is no trial that spotless purity cannot pass through;
there is no difficulty that strong intellect cannot surmount. For
those who win onwards there is reward past all telling - the power to
bless and save humanity; for those who fail, there are other lives in
which success may come.
Cass: Note one has to be a neophyte before the Masters will even entertain looking our way. Krishnamurti knew that neophytes were few and far between and were already under the wings of their Master. Krishnamurti addressed the average citizen and basically told them not to trust any path until you have certain proof.

Why did Krishnamurti attack HPB's Theosophy, why ? What wrong had she
done to him ?
Cass: He didn't. HPB would have backed him all the way in his decision to abandon the newly created path by Leadbeater and Besant for him. He was going to be used as a puppet. How can a new World Teacher have any affiliations to any path and remain non-discriminatory?
