Do you think it advisable to introduce Krishnamurti to people you know? Have you ever done it and if yes, what are your experiences?

It can be useful to introduce people to K, but I think it is more productive to live the teachings and thus show by example.

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

The transformation he spoke of may not be accessible to the human race. We just may not be capable. Having said that, one must still deem it possible because after all, what is the alternative? In other words, "You can never give up". Nature abhors a quitter.
