Member Statement

I'm questioning the value of "culture", both high and low, as we know it. This, as a result of my move to Paris which overfeeds its citizens with cultural offerings.

Do you ever feel that you have been conditioned by Krishnamurti's teachings?

No, I don't feel I've been conditioned by K's teachings. I feel the course of my life was altered by them.

What future do you foresee for Krishnamurti's works? Do you think they will grow in importance or will they just gradually die away?

That all depends on the stewards of the Krishnamurti foundations and so on. The K "works" are the books, tapes, DVDs. I favor a conservative approach, as I don't think the work is for mass consumption. It's too late for that.

The works can grow in importance and gradually die away -- those things are not mutually exclusive.

Can dialogue - in the sense of sincere inquiry - be organized or can it only come about spontaneously, unprompted?

I think this depends on whether or not those organizing the dialogue are seeking an outcome. If they aren't seeking one, it stands a better chance of being sincere.

Do you think it is possible to make Krishnamurti more "practicable" than what he himself seems to have allowed for?

Do you mean: "Krishnamurti for Dummies"?

Perhaps others have already made K more "practicable." I think Eckhardt Tolle echoes a lot of K; that's just one example.

I believe in standing by the source, however. If you really work with the material, and aren't in a rush to "get it" it will take you far.
