Unlike most other religious teachers Krishnamurti does not offer a method of meditation. On the contrary he states categorically that meditation is not a practice a system of prayer or the reprtition of a mantra. It is not learning how to concentrate or how to control thoughts nor is it a spiritual exercise undertaken at set times every day. Meditation is a part of ordinary existence a state of awareness with which one meets life.
1.Meditation is Not different from Daily life (Talk in London on 23 March 1969)
Meditation is not something different from daily life do not go off into the comer of a room and meditate for ten minutes then come out of it and be a butcher both metaphorically and actually.
2. Find Out what Meditation is Not (Talk in New Delhi on 24 December 1970)
When you have a system of meditation it is no longer meditation. It is just mechanical repetition and that has no meaning whatsoever.
3. Meditation Implies the Ending of All conflict (Talk in Ojai, California 17 April 1977
Pursue each thought therefore there is no contradiction no resistance about any thought. Then from that arises awareness.
4. The Art of Meditation (Talk in Francisco on 25 March 1975)
Meditation in daily life is the transformation of the mind a psychological revolution so that we live a daily life not in theory not as an ideal but in every movement of our life in which there is compassion love and the energy to transcend all the pettiness of the life one leads.
5. Silence that is not created by thought (Talk in Brock wood park England on 3 September 1978)
There is silence between two thoughts there is silence when thought says I must be silent all those are artificial silenced not real deep, uncultivated unpremeditated silence.
