WHEN YOU ARE BED-RIDDEN!


HORIZONS ARE STRETCHED - ENDLESSLY.
AND YET.
AS IT WERE, ENSCONCED IN A SHELL,
UNWILLING TO LOOK BEYOND,
THE MIND REVOLVES AROUND ITSELF.
HEIL ICH, MICH UND MEIN!

प्रथम आभास


रात्रि का था आरम्भ हुआ

चांदनी की छिटकने लगी प्रभा

तभी वहीँ खेलते-खेलते अचानक

सारी चंचलता समेट कर बालक

कुछ खोजने लगा बादलों में

क्या छिपा था नभ-आँचल में?

What is inequality?


Many years ago during my studies in Italy in the 1970s I heard a song by a popular Italian singer-musician Luigi Tenco titled "Cara Maestra" ("Dear Teacher"), which I very recently learnt was censored at the time of its first release in 1962 by the Italian media censorship. The text of the song was as follows: Dear Teacher, you used to tell us, we are all equal, but when a peon entered the class, you would allow us to remain seated, but if the director of the school entered the class, you expected us to stand up.

J. KRISHNAMURTI
THE COMPASSIONATE CHALLENGE


There are two kinds of religious streams running parallel to each other. One is the stream which hopes to grasp the Sacred within the fold of human reason, and the other is the stream which keeps reticent, knowing the futility of such a hopeless undertaking. Teachers of the former type have made ceaseless efforts to bring the Unknowable into the realm of the known, the Unthinkable into the realm of thought, the Indescribable into the realm of description.
