Member Statement

Since the site is about Krishnamurti, I relate how I came to know of him. First contact was through "Think on These Things" in 1970. A friend suggested it. I read it and was powerfully affected. I followed, through writings, audio recordings, and seeing him at Carnegie Hall and at Ojai, his life until he died. I continue to regard his teaching and that which came from his life. I just returned from being outside at our home in the country where a breeze is blowing after a refreshing rain. Early summer is blossoming with birds and blooming things. A dog is joyful at being with us and we at being with her. A subtle fragrance is in the air.

Interview Answers

He is exceptional. I cannot know if the "transformation" is accessible and if I know, it is not accessed.
