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

i've recommended krishnamurti to a few people, but only if i feel they are on a similar path already and can take the fire of krishnamurti's words.

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

yes. and i think it could be a good thing to do. with one big caveat: you'd have to make sure that the 'user-friendly-izing' of krishnamurti did not introduce any falsehoods into the teachings. this would be quite challenging.

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

both, as i see it. krishnamurti had a genius for 'spiritual work' just like mozart had a genius for music. the exact transformation he spoke of was fully accessible only to him; it was his unique path. but it is possible for others to undergo a transformation that 'brings them' to the same state of realization.

How do you personally go about exploring the Krishnamurti's teachings (through personal study, dialogues, dvds)?

i hardly ever study krishnamurti's teachings anymore. i need to work these things out for myself, on my own. reading krishnamurti tends to take me away from the inner personal work i need to do.

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

i'm interested in seeing/living the Truth, not in understanding krishnamurti's teachings. for this reason, group dialogue around subtle points of krishnamurti 'logic' doesn't interest me; in fact, it tends to do more harm than good for me, keeps me locked up in the head. i am very drawn to group sharing (ideas, feelings, epiphanies, etc.) but not if it is beholden to one man's philosophy.

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

yes: the methodology (or lack of same). effortless transformation through deep understanding of 'what is' feels right. but without some map/path most people are going to remain lost and eventually get frustrated and give up.
