Not at all

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

Exceptional in the way he was able to set that "connection" with the wholeness, but he was also very human and that implies that possibility exists for all of us regardless of any background. Fear and attachment, I think, it's our main obstacle to grasp that comprehension.

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

A group dialogue implies an aproache to the matter from various directions, not necessarily different conditioning, that means energy being used in a more efficient way. Additionally group dialogue helps the brain to be more alert and active, to make the correct questions and keep them open all the time.

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

Difficult question, how could I confine the immensity in just a few words? Although he was a human being his manifistation was beyond any possible description, you cannot place him in a single category as a philosopher or mistic, or whatever, even though this categorizations are used to get an approach to him in terms of what ordinary mind knows. Not using the word ordinary in any despective way.

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 think is advisible, but there are so little people asking this fundamental questions, about life and suffering, and their minds are so confused that this becomes a great impediment to get an approach to K's teachings, and their minds are so conditioned for religion and other ideas, or they are just too lazy specially in this latin environment, nevertheless there are some of them that has show interest and I've been suppling some material.

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

I think this lies in the type of mind that get in contact with this teachings, there are aspects of his teachings that can be used in a very practical way, but this implies a very serious mind, and unfortunately most people wants easy way outs all the time. Here, in Colombia, there are an explotion of any kind of so called Christian churches all over the place in different colors and taste, and those who do not flock into this places becomes most part of the time indifferent, too boring or too frustrating to take any serious action.
