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 it is very important to introduce people to K:s work and I try to do so on every occasion that appears. In most cases it is well received but rarely "lived".

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

It can be organized and "we" have a group meeting regularly almost since 1975. The group has changed considerably during the years but still exists.

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

I believe he was an extraordinary person, but that the "message" is accessible to everyone.

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

Yes I think so. Where I live we have had to make it practicable in order to make people interested and also to make it liveable.

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

Yes very much so. It is the only way to handle the teachings. Otherwise it becomes dry and hard.
