You Are Your Own Master
You must know for
yourself, directly, the truth of yourself and you cannot realize it
through another, however great. There is no authority that can reveal
Report of Sixteen Talks given in 1945 & 1946
You yourself have to be the master and the pupil. The moment you acknowledge another as a master and yourself as a pupil, you are denying truth. There is no master, no pupil, in the search for truth.
Talks Benares-India 1949 (Verbatim Report) p.37
You must understand it, go into it, examine it, give your heart and your mind, with everything that you have, to find out a way of living differently. That depends on you, and not on someone else, because in this there is no teacher, no pupil; there is no leader; there is no guru; there is no Master, no Saviour. You yourself are the teacher and the pupil; you are the Master; you are the guru; you are the leader; you are everything.
by Krishnamurti in U.S.A 1966 p.73
If you are very
clear, if you are inwardly a light unto yourself, you will never follow
