Even a 1000 scholars cannot know what is true. They can all be wrong.
Whatever concept we have of Masters are just our ideas and perhaps
speculation of them. One who is searching for Truth is going to wherever
that search is going to lead us, if we are serious about Truth and
everything else is only secondary. As regards some who think he rebelled
against his Guru, only Krishnamurti can know whether this is true or not.

On another note, in the 1986 Convention Lecture, Radha Burnier, President
of TS(Adyar) stated that every spiritual organization like TS did not
survive over a century and that the fact TS has survived a century can be
attributed to Krishnamurti's approach of questioning every belief and idea
and concept we hold. This coming from Mrs. Burnier who has been at the
center of action at Adyar all her life must be based on her personal
experience and observation.
