Why Do We Seek a Method Or Technique? - Ojai 1949 - Public Talk 11

Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Why do we seek a method or technique? - 21 August 1949 • The problems of life do not demand a method, because they are so vital and alive that if we approach with a method we totally misunderstand and don’t adequately meet that problem. • Where there is efficiency there is ruthlessness. • The means and the end are not separate. • Reality or God is something that cannot come by a technique, a means, or through a long, determined practice and discipline. • Aloneness implies no means. You are not alone when you have a means. • Q: What is the right relationship, if any, between the individual and the collective, the mass? • Q: What is the significance of pain and suffering?"
