Can dialogue - in the sense of sincere inquiry - be organized or can it only come about spontaneously, unprompted?

What is organised? You mean go to some place and learn to ask question?

It has to come spontaneously, naturally if one is serious about the self.

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

Intelligence is when mind, word and deed are in sync and happens at the same time.

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

More practiable? Do you mean whatever J.Krishnamurthy is impractical. I don't think so. If you think so then you are trying to escape.

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

Krishnamurti never asked to conform; He asks to look with in; Why would one be conditioned by his teachings? I don't understand the question.

Just live it!

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

Ofcourse it is! Otherwise you are creating a nice little place for escapism saying "This is a nice concept" and do what you are doing currently.

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

Healthy doubt? Is there an unhealthy doubt? If so what is that?
Ready acceptance? What does that mean? Accepting it blindly? Or seeing what he asks us to see?

What is balance? I don't understand.

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

Group dialogue? Have you listened to Krishnamurthy's message at all? I will quote something relevant here.

What is satsung? Satsung is where wise people exists. Now I am angry, bad and all that. So I go this satsung and find it really good. I am becoming good. Suddenly there is no satusung. What happens? I get bored again. I tend to go back to where I was. Which means my dependency on Satsung is more than the self. So explore yourself first.

I have never been to group dialogue. If a group dialogue is a session where everyone wants to talk and post opinions then there is no use!

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

I just act. I see no concepts, ideas or anything. Ofcourse I see that the present would be far better than what it is if majority understands Krishnamurthy not follow Krishnamurthy. "Mutation through means of time is illusion."

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

It is expectional Sir. Only if you are willing to look at it. It is marvellous thing. An atomic operation performed excellently.

Universally accessible ? Well I can't say what others will think about his teachings. You can't change someone who isn't willing to look or listen.

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

Nothing is difficult Sir. One's intelligence will provide all the answers which cannot be gathered in a book or a formal process.
