I've seen Krishnamurti a few times and you know what? I think he found
himself boring. He was the Krishnamurti Foundation's only asset and he did
what he had to to keep it going. Otherwise, he might actually have had to
earn a living. I once saw the following exchange. Questioner: "Mr.
Krishnamurti are you The World Teacher?" K: "No." questioner: "Then what are
you?" K. "I'm a man who goes around the world teaching." It's clever, but is
it the statement of a sincere person?
