J. Krishnamurti clearly opposed (at least in speech) founding of
organizations like Theososphical Society founded by Blavatsky and
"Krishnamurti dissolved the Order at the annual Star Camp at Ommen,
the Netherlands, on August 3rd, 1929[57] where, in front of Annie
Besant and several thousand members, he gave a speech[58] saying among
other things:

    "You may remember the story of how the devil and a friend of his
were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man stoop
down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it
away in his pocket. The friend said to the devil, 'What did that man
pick up?' 'He picked up a piece of the truth,' said the devil. 'That
is a very bad business for you, then,' said his friend. 'Oh, not at
all,' the devil replied, 'I am going to help him organize it.'

    I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach
it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my
point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally.
Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path
whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed
to lead or coerce people along a particular path."
