Member Statement

I have been fortunate to come across JK quite early in my life.
I should say his thoughts matched my perspective of life.

So, I was immediately drawn to his teachings.

I would like to interact with people who are 'serious' about the urgency of K's message.

We have to bring about a revolution in our individual minds ASAP.
It is very important for this planet.

The consumerist-materialistic-money driven society has inflicted a tremendous damage on Planet Earth - 'gaia' as some poeple call it. Booma devi as hindus call it.

I am happy to already interact with few friends within two hours of joining the network.

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

Even though K has insisted on the vanity of dialogues with emerge from the ego, I am advocating meaningful interaction in a community to explore the various perspectives of K's teachings.

I feel this would bring about a profound understanding of relationships and the prupose of life.

And, in fully imbibing the vitality of living in the here and now.

I have read K's ideas echoed in gestalt psychology, Echart tolle, Wayne dyer, Emotional intelligence etc.

Thanks for this wonderful opportunity.

I have counseled patients utilizing K's thoughts on life and reality. Facilitated training sessions with K's core teaching of the present moment awareness as the cnetral idea.

This has given be immense satisfaction and benefit to my patients and participants.

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

It is living in the 'here and now' with a sense of gratitude for this life and be choicelessly aware of the impermanancy of all this.

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

What a beautiful question...!

I ahve asked this myself many many times.

I feel tempted to answer in the affirmative .

But it is a tall order. For that one has to go deep into one's day to day interaction with life's many trivialities.
Ensue a life long dialogue with oneslef and other

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

The aspect of 'memory'. K advises us to discard the past and memory.
But we are neurologically hardwired to have our past experiences. And they interfer with our present.

There are at times when we are fully in the present and feeling alive and joyful.
But they are fleeting moments.

K has not given us a solution to help us on the path.
He said that it his duty to 'set man unconditionally free'.
He himself has revealed how the 'masters' came down to work on him.
And how painful and weakening it was to endure the ordeal.
So he had the help of the 'masters'.

How do we attain his transfromational state without the 'work' - as he described it ?

This is my only implausable aspect of his teaching.

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 have been wary of introducing JK to my friends.
I believe they have to have attained 'individuation' - detachment from familial, cultural, religious scripts.

Only then they can grasp the essence of K's teachings.

I have the newsltter from JK foundation in my waiting room. Somebody who is interested may explore into it deeply.
