Founded in 1998, Kinfonet was one of the first webites on the internet dedicated to Krisnamurti's teachings. Its goal is to create an online hub where people interested in Krishnamurti can meet. From the get-go, the site was designed to be international and create worldwide community.
Kinfonet is maintained by Dev and Andrea Singh. The project was initially sponsored by Krishnamurti Link International (KLI) - a small team of individuals from six countries, including Friedrich Grohe, who share a deep and ongoing interest in Krishnamurti.
The purpose of the site is threefold:
- To facilitate active and meaningful engagement with Krishnamurti's teachings by providing features like the discussion forum and a collection of articles written by people who grapple with the questions Krisnamurti posed in their own daily lives.
- To allow people who are interested in the teachings to come together - both online and in real-life - by maintaining an up-to-date list of Krishnamurti-related events, meetups, and resources.
- To communicate the depth and beauty of Krishnamurti's message. This is accomplished by the careful curation of daily quotes, selected excerpts, and our newsletter editorials (sign up below).
Meet the Team
Dev Singh is a software engineer and the original programmer of the Kinfonet website. He currently lives with his partner, Andrea, in the Bay Area of Northern California. Dev has been reading Krishnamurti's teaching on and off for many years now and continues to marvel at the depth of meaning lodged in the phrase that constitutes the core of the teaching, namely, that "Truth is a pathless land".
Andrea Singh met Dev while he was running a Krishnamurti retreat center on the Big Island of Hawaii. She was drawn to the work of Krishnamurti ever since reading the book "The Ending of Time" at the age of 17. Andrea is also a software engineer and a Krishnamurti gem that she finds particularly memorable is: "Thought shattering itself against its own nothingness is the explosion of meditation." (from Krishnamurti's Notebook)
