Interview Answers

How important do you consider group dialogue to be in understanding the more subtle points of Krishnamurti's message?

Personal experience and consequent reflection are the crucible of elusive insight.
Dialogue's best moments as sociable forum, confirming what has already been understood - its' worst :
clash of viewpoints, inevitable alienation.

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

K. exceptional ? is topical, mere idle speculation.
Even if transformation only PARTIALLY accessible, it would not diminish the urgency
of that effort. Serious Commitment to such transformation WILL create the capacity to transcend present limitations.
For those who fail to ask " How Shall I live" in a motivated way, not even the Messiah
could do much, up to now !!

Are there any aspects of Krishnamurti's teaching that you find implausible or difficult to accept?

The need to maintain integrity of the Self in the real/social world is problematic.
Difficulties of this nature are not neccesarily in conlict with K.'s teaching.

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

An urgent question for those influencing Education Policy.
Having a teaching "explained" to you, is not the same, though, as voluntarily approaching it , spurred on by personal circumstances.
