Member Statement

I came across Krishnamurti's teachings about two years ago and I became so intensely interested in them, since then I started reading and studying his books and talks and thinking and pondering on them almost every day, it has caused me a great deal of change in my way of thinking but still I feel so far from that state of "vast emptyness".
So I joined this site in the hope of seeking some help on this way.

Interview Answers

Does the phrase "living the teachings" have any meaning to you?

ofcourse these teachings are not like some academic lessons that you first study and acquire knowledge and then use them in some fields, you have to try to understand the teachings deeply as you read them.

I have studied his teachings by personal study till now but there appears some questions that must be discussed by diffrent people.

Are there any aspects of Krishnamurti's teaching that you find implausible or difficult to accept?

I think there is no need of "accepting" in these teachings, you just need to understand and try them.

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

I do sometimes but it is just a conditioning like any other conditioning thet you need to get rid of by observing it.

If you had to sum up what Krishnamurti is all about in just a few words of your own, what would they be?

There is just one thing that he says: Wape out the fake yourself and reach to the real yourself wich is the only one that exists.

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

If a dialogue is organized then it is sopposed to reach an answer and if you think that way it means you are conditioned about that search that is going on then it is not a free search any more it is an endevour to reach a predefined conclusion that has no good to do.

Do you think Krishnamurti was exceptional, or is the transformation he spoke of universally accessible?

If anyone who underestands the teachings try to attract others attentions to themselves then maybe it will be accessible.

Has coming into contact with Krishnamurti and his teachings had any perceptible effect on your life and/or relationships?

indeed it had! it had a great effect on the way of thinking, way of lookoing at things, way of sencing and thus on the way of living.
I can say the most important effect was on the relationships actually, because relationships are what the life is based on.

Do you think it advisable to introduce Krishnamurti to people you know? Have you ever done it and if yes, what are your experiences?

It may be affective, but also it may create some kind of dogma or belief or organized thinking.
but once one has underestanded the teachings it is ones duty to get people to be interested in themselves rather than in Krishnamurti.

How important do you consider group dialogue to be in understanding the more subtle points of Krishnamurti's message?

I think there is no subtlety in Krishnamurties teachings, every thing is clear to the end, but group dialogue is necessary for one to inquire into oneself, it is a chance to observe yourself.

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

Isn't it the matter that makes the humanity's future?

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

Ofcourse it is, by being interested in yourself not in Krishnamurti nor in the teachings.

How do you strike a balance between healthy doubt and ready acceptance in investigating Krishnamurti's proposals?

by simply observing, these matters of doubt or "positive disposition" are considerable just when you are trying to accept something, when there is no effort for acceptance but only for underestanding then none of these, matter anymore.
