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

I think K teachings are very basic and sometimes there is nothing which he teaches, All he wanted was for people to live, be aware and conscious and find for oneself .From what all I have read I did not find anything which is difficult to accept.

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

People are always looking for change ,and for they have tried everything which looks fascination and worth achieving such as money, career , power, beauty etc, however atleast few have acknowledge that mere possession of these is not giving them what they wanted in the first instant "happiness or joy". So I believe how far a pendulum goes , it has come to rest position. And so I think Krishnamurti works have become more relevant in the current society where people have tried everything except to be happy.

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

It was a serendipity when I come across small book on meditation by Krishnamurti in a library. After that there were series of books and videos which I have read. To answer your question, Yes K teachings has helped me in removing dilemma from my life. I used to give so much importance to goodness or other attributes as said by society. I feel I have become unconditionally free and aware most of the time.

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 have introduce K to my parents, friends etc. Some of them are receptive, but some of them think his thinking was very radical. I think its a sensitive topic to introduce K . There has to be some inclination of other towards Philosophy or spirituality. I think introducing someone to K should be done based on conditions , for example if someone is interested in meditation then try to introduce views of K on meditation.

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

Well a dialogues is only possible if group is interested in solving a problem , not in showing how much they know about K or taking it as a intellectual process. I have done very few of those session and I felt that the individual becomes more important rather than the subject. However, I am open to these.
