Member Statement

I have been reading/experimenting with Krishnamurti's teaching for some years, and I have found it very rewarding. However, this seems to be only scratching the very surface of the teachings. There si still much much more to be explored.

Do you think Krishnamurti was exceptional, or is the transformation he spoke of universally accessible?

It seems to be Krishnamurti's challenge to us that the transformation he spoke of is possible for each of us, if we are willing to take the initiative.

Do you think it is possible to make Krishnamurti more "practicable" than what he himself seems to have allowed for?

In general, Krishnamurti has already made things as clear as possibly, and I don't see much rooms of improvements.

But in particular cases, or in specific areas of life, which Krishnamurti himself could/need not have encountered all one by one, and which we ourself encounter, it is our responsibility to work out the specific way accordingly.

How do you strike a balance between healthy doubt and ready acceptance in investigating Krishnamurti's proposals?

To have a spirit of experiment in life seems to be the key. In really life, you can neither believe blindly, or doubt endlessly to the degree of not being able to act on anything. The balance is vary natural.

If you had to sum up what Krishnamurti is all about in just a few words of your own, what would they be?

Since my understanding of the teaching is very limited, it would be false to say summing up the teaching. But as a practical atitude for myself in life, I might say: live our life as truthfully and as fully as we can.

Do you ever feel that you have been conditioned by Krishnamurti's teachings?

Yes, when I read too much and do not digest and live it sufficiently. But when I start to experiment/test it out in real life, the conditioning goes away naturally.

Do you think it advisable to introduce Krishnamurti to people you know? Have you ever done it and if yes, what are your experiences?

This depends on my own states as well as on the other persons states. When I feel that I am not clsoe to the teaching in my mind/life, I don't feel like talking about it to others too much. But if I feel it, and the other person is somewhat receptive, then it is natural to do so.

I have done it occasionally, and there are some very positive responses. But Krishnamurti's teaching is not so easy, so one should not expect other people to get it so quickly. A new encounter may get intrigued/interested first, and then it will take some time before they really get into it.
