6. Some people hold that while the World-Teacher has no concern with the founding of a new religion yet the Bodhisattva Maitreya in His larger Cosmic consciousness is concerned with and supports all religions and creeds.

KRISHNAMURTI: Oh, what a comfortable idea! How you worship words. You are in love with labels and not with Truth. What do you mean by "Cosmic consciousness"? Life? How can you divide Life into the World-Teacher and the Bodhisattva? Oh, you people of little understanding! Do you see what is implied in this question? That which you like you will attribute to the Bodhisattva; that which you do not like, to the World-Teacher or perhaps to Krishnamurti. What do you think yourselves? Where is your understanding after all these years? How you deceive yourselves with all these words! You divide Life into the World-Teacher, Bodhisattva, and that which is pleasant is the one, and that which is not pleasant is the other, and if neither suits, then it is Krishnamurti. What has Truth to do with the terms "World-Teacher", "Bodhisattva", or "Krishnamurti"? What has life to do with these names? If you are carried away by my authority now, you will be carried away by some other authority later. You will obey by authority and disobey by authority. You have no understanding in the matter. You want comfort all the time, and you find that comfort in words, in authority, in gods and in dogmas.

But if you can realize that there is no comfort but understanding, you will not be caught up in words, in ideas, in books, or in the shades of remembered gods. How ready you are to judge without knowledge! To accept without understanding!
