Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening

Krishnamurti Quote of the Day

Group Discussion 16th April, 1948 | Chennai, India

Question: Supposing a man has no factual memory. Can he discover?

Krishnamurti: If a man has no factual memory at all, he is not there. Is cultivation, processes of thinking, necessary for stillness? Can thought-process - investigating, responses of conclusions, - give place to stillness? Stillness comes only when the thought-process comes to an end. The new is seen only when the mind is still.
