Member Statement

I do not know the thing I am and therefore do not know where am I, what am I doing or how to look upon this world or on myself.

Interests and Recommendations

Books

"A Course In Miracles" published by Foundation for Inner Peace. It contains a teaching with very much the same content as Krishnamurti's under quite a different form

Interview Answers

What future do you foresee for Krishnamurti's works? Do you think they will grow in importance or will they just gradually die away?

True thinking can but grow in importance

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

That would be tampering with his thoughts

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

I encouraged a young friend, who saw himself as atheistic and yet interested in the Dalai Lama's teachings, reading Krishnamurti. He found it quite interesting and terribly uncompromising. I think I did a good service to this fellow.

How do you personally go about exploring the Krishnamurti's teachings (through personal study, dialogues, dvds)?

I have read some of his books. I use to enjoy this site's quote of the day.

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

It is not only universally accessible but it is indeed unavoidable. I think we believe we are trapped by our egos in the world we see only because we are actively avoiding that transformation with every breath we take. Yet we cannot keep on doing that forever.

Krishnamurti was exceptional only in time, and time does not really exist.

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

I feel that many times I have seen Krishnamurti's teachings as a finger pointing to the light, and I am grateful for that.

Does the phrase "living the teachings" have any meaning to you?

Either you live what you learn -teaching what you learn and learning what you teach- or you are just wasting your time and letting time waste you
