Actually Rick, have you heard from David at all since he left? I often think of him. Rough edges alright, but still unafraid to say what he saw. Remember this from last October?

++++++++++++=

Last week my wife and I were in Ojai. We stayed, as always, at the Lindley House next to Arya Vihara or what is now called the "Pepper Tree Retreat". The K library, which is Pine Cottage where K lived frequently and where he died, was being rented out. The library was closed and the Pepper Tree Retreat was rented out to the participants of some mother-baby seminar. After that event ended there was another seminar scheduled called "Wisdom Gathering" which was also not related to anything about K.

Troy Sumrall, the new director of the KFA, and presumeably with the backing of the KFA Board has decided to temporarily suspend providing a place for people to come and study K's writings. Instead they are renting to anyone with a few bucks just to drum up some money. They are prostituting themselves and the sole purpose for which the KFA is suppose to exist. If there is not enough interest in what K said to support the Foundations then they should be shut down. It's not fair to people who send money to the Foundations for them to whore out the facilities to anyone with a few bucks and deny those who may have traveled a long way access to the facilities and to see where K lived and to study his works.

Now you can argue that they need to do this because they need the money but that doesn't fly. The one purpose of the various Krishnamurti Foundations is to keep available the record of the talks, the books, all the writings of K. Not to keep the foundations going at any costs so that Troy Sumrall and others can keep their jobs. Sumrall should be immediatately fired as should any board member who approved this gross misuse of the K library.

We all knew it was just a matter of time before the various K Foundations would be wholly corrupted but who knew it would be this soon after K's death?

The stones speak the same when they are unyoked and when they are on their journey, with their stamplings like the noises of men who drink deeply. Like those who sow seed and grow grain, they gobble up the Soma without diminishing it as they lap it up.

I agree rick...they were bringing something vitally needed in such a forum....the vital diversity, without trolling to destroy ....they may have kept Bob as well , for me no doubt he should have stayed , in his manner he brings much and beyond what may sound rather wrong with himself to some , but is not in my views( well who is not wrong ?) this is too clean...

PS: having said that , about yogi and killers like him, well , like in real life they better harm themselves than others..

got the movie ,will watch it today :)

I agree with you.(Though I don't know Bob).

Randal is sharpest person, I ever met on this forum or any other K forum.A Person with real understanding.

Chafia too is marvellous, a combination of big heart and sharp mind, affectionate and loving human.Forget about her tiny lies and all the nonsense, these all are very superficial.In real she is a great human being.

Personally I am attached to both, I like them and love them.

Thanks for your comment, Dan.

I want to take the discussion on 'knowledge' a little further so will start a new thread on that. This one being maainly for observations rather than discussion.

Hi Ganesan. Max and I have briefly looked at the question of knowledge of colour. How is colour expressed in the Vedas? Is the sky blue? I notice in all the quotes you give there are no colours - or I did not notice it. Is this correct?

The Ancient Greeks, along with every other ancient culture, had no word for blue and hardly much 'colour sense' at all.

No.that i will come to it later. have you noticed we don't dream colours.
i will delete however even if, if you want me to proceed on colour sense of the ancients.Sir C.V. Raman got the inspiration from the ancient culture only, when they depict Vishnu in blue. But white and black were there.Shukla yajur veda, krishna yajur veda. i have to see the originals. the information you have provided is interesting.

Dawn.

Her brilliant flame has become visible once more; she spreads herself out, driving back the formless black abyss. As one sets up the stake in the sacrifice, anointing and adorning it with coloured ornaments, so the daughter of the sky sets up her many- coloured light.

Is that not with K also:)

However K brings us to the ground, but this has to be viewed from the ground. The more we are nearer to the ground more we get out of it.
