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

It can be spontaneous or it can also be through discussions.Through discussions it would enable a person on how to approach or where he went wrong.But to be spontaneous one needs to have tremendous energy and sincerity.

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

Well am not really worried about the future here but i don't think it would die away as people become more aware of the violence inside and outside K's teachings would gain momentum.
