Here's the full quote:"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 to coerce people along any particular path. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organize a belief. A belief is purely an individual matter, and you cannot and must not organize it. If you do, it becomes dead, crystallized; it becomes a creed, a sect, a religion, to be imposed on others. This is what everyone throughout the world is attempting to do. Truth is narrowed down and made a plaything for those who are weak, for those who are only momentarily discontented. Truth cannot be brought down, rather the individual must make the effort to ascend to it. You cannot bring the mountain-top to the valley. If you would attain to the mountain-top you must pass through the valley, climb the steeps, unafraid of the dangerous precipices."
Thanks for the full quote! We have been using the main quote as a tag line for our blog (www.simafore.com/blog) because it is very appropriate in technical matters as well :)
@BR Deshpande, I totally agree with how Krishnamurti's quote applies to technical matters, absolutely...
Hello. Housewife here again. I was on a very strict and very narrow path for a long time, not entirely of my choosing, one of those small, non-denominational ones. A pain to break free of, but I have, except for a bit of lingering psychological damage that makes me think sideways a lot. Anywho, I'm not sure I totally agree that up towards the mountaintops is the only direction to find Truth, or truths. I find bits and pieces of truths with every step, in high places and in low places. For me it is a combination of all of this, of all of our experiences here, alone and collectively. In the clarity of a serendipitous meeting with a noble thought, and in the muck and mire of the everyman commonality of our oh so human days. Exalted or base, in all of it I find the great richness of truth.
