Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

Early Writings, Volume VII | Talks at Adyar, India 1932-33

In effort, which is the result of seeking gain, profit, advantage, there cannot be understanding or the realization of that which is life. Why do you make an effort? To be something other than what you are. But it is only by discovering what you are, by knowing your innumerable deceptions, conceits, vanities, and your desire for power and conformity, that you become free. Hence the needlessness of effort.
