Jiddu Krishnamurti throws light on meditation, In this Talk, he discusses, what is the place of search, in meditation? Can one bring about order without understanding disorder? Is control necessary for order? Why do we need control when there is understanding of "what is"? Can a petty mind experience anything other than its own projections and activities? To see clearly, musn't the mind be quiet? If you see this extraordinary thing going on in your life, then it is everything. Then you are the teacher, the student, the beauty of the cloud and that is love. What is Meditation is the last Talk of a series of 4 given in San Diego State College,5th April, 1970
Tibet was invaded, pillared, raped, destroyed. Tibet had no armies, no weapons, no tanks; yet their monasteries were robbed, priceless historical and religious scriptures were burned, monks tortured, and nuns raped before being horribly murdered. Tibetans were forced not to meditate, but to work in the fields. Under loaded machine guns, meditators were being forced to work in labor camps and wear the typical Chinese peasant uniforms so that all their uniqueness and individuality would be destroyed. In addition, the Tibetan language is deliberately being destroyed; children are forced to learn and speak Chinese.
It is a tragedy that Tibet fell into the hands of materialists who believe people are only matter and that consciousness is only a by-product of matter. Communists are not interested in meditation and they even deny the existence of the inner sphere.
