The Shoddy Mind

When did Krishnamurti quit using the phrase, “shoddy mind”? Why did he quit using it? Did shoddy minds take offense? Can a shoddy mind know how shoddy it is?


  1. Made of or containing inferior material.
  2. Of poor quality or craft.
  3. Rundown; shabby.

I think, if we observe the shoddy mind then we are not different from it then.
