Aldous Huxley Was a Veda
[link to orgkrishnamurti.tumblr.com] —In 1938, Krishnamurti made the acquaintance of Aldous Huxley, who had arrived from Europe during 1937. The two began a long friendship which endured for many years. They held common concerns about the imminent conflict in Europe which they viewed as the outcome of the pernicious influence of nationalism.

—It was Krishna’s good friend Aldous Huxley who introduced Raja to his editor at Harper and Row, the firm that published Krishna’s many books. Krishna had little interest in writing or publishing, but he allowed Raja to cobble books out of his talks and notebooks, and to edit this material into volumes.

—a great article about Krishnamurti’s influence on Aldous Huxley’s writing: [link to www.journal.kfionline.org]

MAN IS AN amphibian who lives simultaneously in two worlds--the given and the home-made, the world of matter, life and consciousness and the world of symbols. In our thinking we make use of a great variety of symbol-systems--linguistic, mathematical, pictorial, musical, ritualistic. Without such symbol-systems we should have no art, no science, no law, no philosophy, not so much as the rudiments of civilization: in other words, we should be animals.
