Krishnamurti was proclaiming a message of
inward liberation by understanding the ways of one’s own mind. He rejected the
rituals and paraphernalia of organised religion, and saw nationalism as a
‘fatally divisive force’.
Violence is not merely killing another. It is
violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a
person, when we obey because there is fear.
So violence isn’t merely organized butchery
in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more
subtle, much deeper.
