Hi Dear Brother/Sister,

It happened like that ,whenever i study or read from the books of Jitu Krishnamurti i begin to feel like that i am doing something wrong , i dont know i feel like a person who jump from one school to another and my mind says have i read all the books of master samael , have i practice enough however i dont deny that JK's writing is attractive but still JKrishnamurti says many things against what Master Samael aun weor has taught us. This also happened with me when i am listening to Alan Watts
So i am worrying about this feeling of betrayal to Master samael.
Please Help me to Comprehend this


Thanks In Advance

Amen

I don't think you're betraying Samael Aun Weor by reading other authors. Samael himself read the work of dozens (possibly hundreds) of spiritual and religious authors.

What is important is to practice and work.

Regarding Krishnamurti, he was a great master, and Samael Aun Weor points this out himself. However, due to some trauma in his childhood he was unable to teach to his full potential. But his teachings are still excellent.

It's also worth mentioning that Krishnamurti can be very subtle. There are times when it appears like he is saying something contradictory to Samael, or some well-established Scripture. But when you really examine his words carefully you see he is actually in complete concordance with them. Like the work of any great master, his words were not meant to be read like a newspaper. You have to reflect carefully on what he says.

Also it's important to remember that these teachings are not the exclusive domain of Samael Aun Weor. The knowledge we share here is universal, which is why we draw from so many different scriptures and traditions in the material on this website. We encourage people to study the work of many great masters, and there's no reason to feel like you are committing a betrayal when you do so.

Yeah, just because the Gnostic teachings can be found in many different scriptures and from many different masters, that doesn't mean that everyone who has anything to say is necessarily a reflection of that timeless knowledge.

Osho, as you pointed out, is an excellent example of that. It becomes very clear, very quickly from reading his writings that he is pitch black. So we would advise not wasting your time with such nonsense.

Relying on more established Scriptures is usually a good idea. But just remember that just because something is old, that doesn't mean it's right. There have been black magicians and misguided people throughout the ages. So whenever you study anything, remember to use your judgment and listen to your heart.

Thank you , I am feeling relieved.

But still there are many falls guru who claims to be master like Osho ( it is written that he is a black magician) so we should avoid reading their writing and rely on authentic scriptures?

Thanks
