Member Statement

I derived great inspiration from J.Krishna Murthy. I have authored a Book, entitled " Edifying Thoughts", the book will be published by a U.S based publisher, and the process will take about 5 to 6 months from now. I wish to share my work, with the members of Kinfonet. Some of the excerpts are reproduced from my book on my Websites:

Interview Answers

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

JK's - philosophy is very down to earth. He is not an ivory tower philosopher but would convince, guide people to be very practical in life. His analytical mind and body was complete.
I have become more of a practical thinker myself, and do not beat around the bush.

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

This is where, i see a threat!
An intellect of the standards of JK, must not be a subject of dialogue in common, with half baked beans on common platform.
I am afraid, there would be lot of misinterpretations and chaos.Undesirable contests, and ego clashes may result.
We do not have JK in physical forum to resolve this.
His contribution to society at large, must not be disrespected.

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

Investigate, explore, explore myths attached to a subject and understand without any bias- is what JK- always said.
Truth must be found, from moment to moment, that's what he said. And he never believed in a truth founded.
