Interview Answers

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

Organised dialogue does not give much scope for self-inquiry. Being aware of - your thoughts, actions, reactions, speech, interactions, relationships - in everyday living, brings about changes.

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 can be done but very subtly. Yes, I have. Many of them feel it is too intellectual and one needs to be very 'mature'.

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

Oh yes! There have been dramatic changes in my life both at home and outside. Having a spouse who is also interested in K, we have frequent discussions on subjects that I come across while working on K's teachings. There is a much better awareness of Nature around me.

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

K was exceptional in that his teachings spoke of fundamental issues of one's life and he went to the very root of man's psyche and expressed it in simple language.

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

Group dialogues are useful to the extent that one can get to know different view points that the participants express. Without being influenced by those views, one needs to dwell upon K for a while. There may not be an immediate understanding, but at some later stage there is a likely to be a sudden "insight'.

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

Maybe to some extent. But I will not call it 'conditioning'. I would rather call it an 'awakening' to the falsities or foolishness of one's behaviour.
