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

CHANGE HAPPENS WHEN SOMETHING IS DONE.IF THE COMMUNION OF JK'S EXTENDED FAMILY,IF I MAY SAY SO,CHOOSES TO ORGANIZE MEETS FREQUENTLY THEN KRISHNAMURTHI'S WORKS WILL HAVE MORE UTILITY TO THE NEW GENERATIONS.
