The best way to understand krishnaji is to allow his voice and figure and words to seep through you.Group dialogues can be as helpfu as unhelpful.

I feel that understanding, experiential understanding has to be personal..... sharing it is ok of course for those that are hapy to! intellectual understanding though is different story, it is benefitial to see how others see it.

I WOULD CONSIDER DIALOGUE WITH AS FEWER PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE (JUST TWO IN DIALOGUE) AS THE BEST WAY TO UNDERSTAND HIS MESSAGE.

More than reading, a discussion opens up one's mind.

i'm interested in seeing/living the Truth, not in understanding krishnamurti's teachings. for this reason, group dialogue around subtle points of krishnamurti 'logic' doesn't interest me; in fact, it tends to do more harm than good for me, keeps me locked up in the head. i am very drawn to group sharing (ideas, feelings, epiphanies, etc.) but not if it is beholden to one man's philosophy.

Dialogues and conversations are essential and vitally important to the whole process of understanding the more subtle points of Krishnamurthi's message.
The message is as subtle as life and therefore there is no direct verbal 'path' ot it;
only openminded discussions and dialogues would give clues as to what the 'message' points out to or indicate.

I very seldomly participated in group dialogue. It can be a source of irritation depending on the level of understanding within the present moment, but also it can be a "movie" of untouching confusion to be viewed and observed, suffering in action.

Very important if frustrating.

Not so important for me personally, though I can see it has a role at the Krishnamurti centres and schools, anywhere where there are groups of people intersested. I just don't know enough interested people around here to form a group!

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.

Dialogue is important as a field in which we can understand our own meanings and arrive at a sense of participatory consciousness through the sharing of its diverse contents. Dialogue is therefore potentially conducive to creating the atmosphere of communication that can contribute to the understanding of ever subtler dimensions of our own nature as human beings. The teachings are there as a mirror of the more superficial and deeper aspects of our human condition and dialogue is a very natural way of engaging with them in this inquiry into ourselves.

It's very important. Definitely, it will be useful to understand his works better.

Essential, although I don't know if it is possible over a forum. At a study centre, yes it can be.

One thing that cannot be conveyed here is the tone of the words we say. It is easy to misunderstand others and take questioning as an 'attack' as opposed to a question for greater clarification.

Alone one can learn a great deal, and how implies measurement, dialog is important but is it necessary for understanding, being aware of yourself?

Well, people do bring in different subtle points, and the variety of views is important, as long as a fight doesn't break out!

Totally relative to who you are. There are no inherent limits to inquiry and exploration.

very good !
because we get to know ourselves while being in relationship,
and the variety of brains do bring more facets into the inquiry.

group dialogue might be of use, but i think it is not more important than any other way of relationship to everything in ones life;
if someone is really listening than this person will see, feel and hear what is meant beyond words;
otherwise groupdialogue will reinforce the "ego", words is me;

In theory, dialogues would have been an excellent way to explore subtleties, ambiguities and contradictions present in the teachings. In practice, well, I have already answered this in my member statement.
