Member Statement

When my husband died five years ago, nothing could relieve my grief. By some good fortune I found a book by Jiddu Krishnamurti, Commentaries on Living. I'd never before seen such perspective on life. I started noticing the beauty of the world around me. Soon I was feeling okay with life. The sadness is still there, but very remote. I wish I could meet more people interested in his work.

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

Dialogue expands one's understanding of K's teachings sometimes. Other times they can be a soapboax for egocentric devotees.

My dear Anastasia - I am glad that I have found a friend in you. I had an experience similar to yours when I lost my dad way back in 1963. I was in New Delhi at that time and was a keen face-to-face listener of Krishnaji's talks since 1957 and was totally immersed in his works such as Commentaries on Living, Education and the Significance of Life, etc. Yes, listening to his words combined with an intense process of living through every thought and feeling in my own mind gave me a total release from my grief. Warm Regards - Devidas Warrier

Dear Ms Kovas & Mr. Warrier,
Just be aware of the fact that you don't fall into the trap of substituting K's Teachings with your own inner void. I think all of us should understand what living is before we try to reconcile with death.
