Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening
Annual Gatherings

Event - Meditation In Daily Life, K.E.T. Annual Gathering


Description

"Putting everything in our daily life in the right place, is the art of meditation."

- J. Krishnamurti

Krishnamurti Education Trust will be holding its annual gathering in Orchid International School at Nashik, Maharashtra, India. All interested persons are most welcome to participate.

Human beings have ever sought peace and ultimate bliss in their lives. And to achieve that they have developed what is called as meditation. There are innumerable systems and methods of meditation promoted by various organisations and gurus. But in practising these, the one who practises often gets overlooked, ignored. It is interesting to note that the very entity for whom the god, the ultimate reality, the eternal peace is to be sought, continues to be what it is throughout the practice of so-called meditation, although the practitioner keeps on thinking that the practice is slowly bringing about change in him. What is meditation? Why should one meditate? What place has meditation in our daily life? Is it an activity to be done during a certain period of a day and forgotten for the rest of the day? What are the effects of meditation on our daily life? What are the difficulties in meditation? Are there any systems, practices of meditation? All such and many more questions will be taken up for exploration during this workshop with particular reference to Krishnamurti’s approach to meditation. It is hoped that in the very exploration of these questions, one may start meditating.

The gathering programme will be conducted in English/Marathi languages and includes chanting, silence session, video shows of Krishnamurti’s talks/dialogues, lectures, group dialogues and evening walks.
