Why do we erect false gods?
Me of all people too… I can not believe it. I erected a false god. His name was J. Krishnamurti. And now I see through his bullshit, some of it is very good bullshit indeed and still makes sense. Please still go out there and read his books but my God he is a false good of putridity.
Here is how I found out. Follow the link if you want to learn more.
Radha Rajagopal Sloss dropped a little bomb in
the Krishnamurti circles in 1991 by alleging that her
mother, Rosalind Rajagopal, the wife of Krishnamurti’s
former friend, manager and publisher, Desikacharya
Rajagopal, had a secret love affair with Krishnamurti from
1932 until approximately 1957. This revelation, now
admitted to be true by the Krishnamurti Foundation of
America, might have done irreparable damage to
Krishnamurti’s image as a celibate, but as physical love is not
contradictory to his teachings, the disclosure will probably
soon be considered irrelevant.
and possibly damaging is Sloss’ allegation about
Krishnamurti’s involvement in the termination of Rosalind’s
third pregnancy by Krishnamurti and the observations of
Sloss and others about his behavior in the
Krishnamurti-Rajagopal feud over funds, real estate, and archives.
According to Sloss the real cause of the fight was
Krishnamurti’s fear about “what would happen to his public image
if letters and statements in his own handwriting
should ever come to light. He wished to acquire control
over these archives by whatever means necessary.” (75)
This alleged obsession drove Krishnamurti to maligning
Rajagopal, and to instigating a lawsuit accusing Rajagopal
of mismanaging funds. (76) Some, who were close to
both men, and had knowledge of the case, tried, in
vain, to mend fences. Sloss reproduced their letters
with their observations: “One day, history will reveal
everything; but the division in Krishnamurti himself will
cast a very dark shadow on all he has said or written.
Because the first th ing the readers will say, is: `If he
cannot live it, who can?'” This last statement was
echoed in another letter: “It has been obvious to me
Krishnaji is not living his own teaching, that he has been
making war.” An explanation for this was offered by
Sloss, which is similar to Nethercot’s view of
Krishnamurti: “Krishna was more than one person.”
The point is that everyone talks shit. Me included. In Dr. Hyatt’s words :- we are all bio-machines and feed of our own crap. That’s not what he said by the way!
Again, I will say, no more guru’s. No more teachers!
