Professor Henry Jones, Sr.: I'll tell you what someone said to me. The most extraordinary person I ever met. I was eleven years old. My father was giving a lecture tour around the world. We went to India. A place more strange and exotic than I had ever seen.

Professor Henry Jones, Sr.: [narrating] Well, we saw everything: the Taj Mahal and all the other palaces. We ended up in Benares, the city on the sacred river Ganges. Benares is the holiest city in India. A place where all the religions in the world come together in harmony. A place of spirits and mystery. We were invited to stay at the Hindu National College.

[chuckles]

Professor Henry Jones, Sr.: I was supposed to be studying geometry, but I decided to take a look around.

Charles Leadbeater: You have become less than friendly, madame.

Miss Seymour: Do I have an aura?

Charles Leadbeater: Yes in fact you do.

Miss Seymour: [holds up her arm] It's funny, I can't see it.

Charles Leadbeater: I can.

Miss Seymour: Oh you can see it? Because you're a psychic, right? You have telepathic powers. So tell me, what am I thinking now?

Charles Leadbeater: Miss Seymour, psychic power is not something to be joked about. Your skeptisism is merely a reflection of a rather limited western education and upbringing.

Jiddu Krishnamurthi: I want you to think of something you want more than anything else in the world.

Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: I want... I want to live forever!

[they sit down under a tree]

Jiddu Krishnamurthi: But everybody has to die. You cannot live forever. How does that make you feel, Indy?

Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: I feel sad, I guess.

Jiddu Krishnamurthi: That is the answer to your question. You see, people want things they cannot have and that makes them sad and they suffer.

Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: [looking at a statue of Shiva] Why is he called the destroyer?

Jiddu Krishnamurthi: He sounds mean, doesn't he? But really, Shiva is a compasionate god, because in Hinduism, the destroyer of life is also the bringer of life. So what Shiva destroys, he renews and restores.

Jiddu Krishnamurthi: God is not a Buddhist or a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian or a Jew. God is in every person and in every living thing. There is one thing that every religions say: that God is compassion. God is love.

Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: [narrating] Annie Besant continued to claim that Krishnamurti was the new world teacher.

[cut back to old Indy at the truck stop]

Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: But, in 1929 in front of three thousand members of the society, Krishnamurti renounced his membership. For the next 50 years, he gave talks all over the world telling people that God is in all of us and that above all else, we should be kind to one another. Just something to think about.

[gets up to leave]

Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: See you later!

Trucker: [baffled] Yeah, see you later.
