Krishnamurti’s Teachings and Theosophy

Choong Chi Pin continues his talk based on this article by Pablo Sender:


Once J. Krisnamurti said:

‘We have used thought in order to discover Truth, but Truth can only be discovered when the mind is totally empty.’

“The process of thinking is the product of the activity of kâma-manas (also referred to as lower manas) and we must understand that the kâma-manasic conscience cannot perceive that which is out of the ‘material’ perimeter. It can think about the spiritual; talk about it and consider it as a logical possibility, but it can never perceive it fully. This is explained by H. P. Blavatsky as follows:

“Since manas, in its lower aspect, is the seat of the terrestrial mind, it can, therefore, give only that perception of the Universe which is based on the evidence of that mind; it cannot give spiritual vision. Self-knowledge of this kind is unattainable by what men usually call ‘self-analysis’. It is not reached by reasoning or any brain process; for it is the awakening to consciousness of the Divine nature of man.”

Sources of Psychic Error

A talk by our Assistant Secretary, Brandon Goh


“It is said that on the astral plane, under every flower lies a serpent coiled. Let us explore the illusory nature of the astral plane and its endless capacity to deceive. As our psychic faculties are growing in the midst of mounting impurity, vice and chaos in the modern world, it is crucial that we at least appreciate some of the principles behind the workings of clairvoyance.


By discovering the laws that govern it, we arm ourselves — as far as possible — against the “coiled serpent” with the sword of reason and armour of knowledge, for the eventual confrontation of this glamorous world is certain if we tread the middle path.”
