Event - The Power Of Now Living In The Present


“One can live completely in the present, without a fixed idea, without any preconceived thought, and this living completely in the present gives the tremendous energy which is necessary to bring about a total revolution in the mind.”

  • J. Krishnamurti

Krishnamurti Education Trust will be holding its summer gathering in YWCA premises at Ootacamund (Ooty), Tamilnadu, India. All interested persons are most welcome to participate.

What is the significance of now and how it has the potential to change our life for all time to come will be explored during this gathering.

We always seem to live on the memories of the past or hopes of the future but never in the fact of the present. Every happening of the present is interpreted in terms of the past and the future and hence never understood as it is. This creates lot of conflicts in our life and makes our life mechanical, programmed and dull. There is no energy in it. What does living in the present mean? What is the significance of now? What is the nature of time? What role does it play in our life? What is evolution? Is there a psychological evolution? What do relationship, change, action and death mean in the context of living in the present? All such questions and many more related issues will be taken up for exploration in this gathering. The exploration and study will be based on J. Krishnamurti's Teachings.

The gathering programme will be conducted in English and includes chanting, silence session, video shows of Krishnamurti’s talks/dialogues, lectures, group dialogues and evening walks.
