In order to be relieved of our misery, we have to know the basic reason for it, the cause of the suffering. How do we start generating negativity? Now, one way to solve this problem is to arrange that nothing unwanted happens in life, that everything keeps on happening exactly as we desire. This solution was helpful; it worked.

Jiddu Krishnamurti Krishnamurti dans les années 1920 Jiddu Krishnamurti (ou Jidhu Krishnamurti) (en télougou జిడ్డు కృష్ణ మూర్తి et en tamoul கிருஷ்ணமூர்த்தி), né à Madanapalle (Andhra Pradesh) le 11 mai 1895 et décédé à Ojai (Californie) le 17 février 1986, est un philosophe d'origine indienne promoteur d'une éducation alternative. Apparue au sein de la théosophie et de la contreculture des années 1960, sa pensée exerça une influence notable sur des auteurs et des personnalités de différentes disciplines.

D'abord présenté dès son adolescence par la société théosophique de l'époque comme un messie potentiel, il a opéré un revirement un peu plus tard pour développer une thèse radicalement opposée, reposant principalement sur l'idée qu'une transformation de l'humain ne peut se faire qu'en se libérant de toute autorité.
