BPL commentary:

For Uttara-azadha natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, speculators, brilliant dramatists, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poetic romantics, and game-players may be especially influential.

Guided by instructors from the civilizations of Nunki

"A very good, honest, and sincere character...

A peace loving disposition.

  • Very intelligent and wise.

  • Respected and liked by everyone with whom he comes in contact.

Eager to live and let live.

  • Tolerant to others, giving help where help is required.

A good counselor in times of need or trouble.

  • Such a person makes a good and steady friend,

  • whose friendship is to be valued because it will stand the tests of time and adversity."

His English management team tried to get him into both Oxford and London universities but failed. Krishnamurti was too young and academically unprepared, while and his managers were viewed in many circles as hoaxy frauds. Still there was a movement to be developed and money to be made. There were many believers and many large donations. Private tutors were hired and life went on.

Clearly a public figure. However Chandra-12 requires privacy and Surya-4 is a mystic (ruler of 8) who draws spiritual knowledge from the land.

Radiantly unique and noble uttama-Surya-Mesha-4 = independence, aristocracy, education, champion of freedom of the folk. For 60 years he visited periodically on a three-country pattern between India, UK, and USA; gave lectures; tended his vegetable garden; and relaxed with friends, funded by a financially privileged organization which continued to hold him up as a World Teacher -- despite his vigorously denouncing this role . K certainly never had to work in the conventional sense of the term.

Rahu * rajyalobha-karaka * picchala-karaka (slippery)

Mangala-Rahu period * Rahu-2-truth. Aug-1929, Abdication speech dissolving the Order of the Star = "truth is a pathless land" : Rejecting occult study, authority figures, and ceremonial religion as paths to truth. His primary western handler Ms. Annie Besant had become senile and she did not recognize that Krishnamurti had effectively ended the organization as she had designed it.

Ketu * kavandha-karaka * chidra-karaka

Zukra-Ketu period * Ketu-7 partnerships * Dec-1910publication of At the Feet of the Master (K's age 15)written when Krishnamurti was only 15 and promoted as his own work. As commentators have noted, a fifteen year old not well accustomed to using English could hardly have produced such a masterpiece of succinct wisdom and mature advice. Clearly it was written by an adult with a promotional goal in mind. Nevertheless it sold fabulously under Krishnamurti's purported authorship, and soon the book was hailed as a cornerstone scripture of the Theosophical movement.

Krishnamurti's speech

disbanding the Order of the Star of the East which had been created to support him as Theosophical World Teacher,

(Ommen, Holland, August 2, 1929)

"I maintain that truth is a pathless land ,

  • and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect.

That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally.

Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized;

  • nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path."

QUOTATION from Jiddu Krishnamurti

"You may remember the story of how the devil and a friend of his were walking down the street,

when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket.

The friend said to the devil, "What did that man pick up?"

"He picked up a piece of the truth," said the devil.

"That is a very bad business for you, then," said his friend.

"Oh, not at all," the devil replied, "I am going to help him organize it."

"Beauty is complete order.

But most of us have not that sense of beauty in our lives.

  • We may be great artists, great painters, expert in various things, but in our own daily life, with all the anxieties and miseries, we live, unfortunately, a very disordered life.

It is a fact.

  • You may a great scientist, you may be a great expert in a subject, but you have your own problems, struggles, pain, anxieties and the rest of it.

We are asking, is it possible to live in complete order within, not impose discipline, control, but to inquire into the nature of this disorder, what are the causes, and to dispel, move away, wash away the cause.

Then there is a living order in the universe."

"Pain itself destroys pain.

Suffering itself frees man from suffering."
