Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening
Annual Gatherings

Event - 2015 International Krishnamurti Gathering Thailand


Description

“Life is what is happening this instant, not an imagined instant, not what thought has conceived. So it is the first step you take now that is important. If that step is in the right direction, then the whole of life is open to you. The right direction is not towards an ideal, a predetermined end. It is inseparable from that which is taking place now. This is not a philosophy, a series of theories. It is exactly what the word philosophy means - the love of truth, the love of life. It is not something that you go to the university to learn. We are learning about the art of living in our daily life.”

J.Krishnamurti – Letters to the Schools Vol. 1
