Do you think it is possible to make Krishnamurti more "practicable" than what he himself seems to have allowed for?

the people must look in the mirror and then to be aware...they must forget K. as a person ....many people will put him then on a pedestal...

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

K. has said: do not promote K. or the teachings , people must look to your attitude and notice then , what's the difference..
that's difficult for me , because I have the instinct for myself, to tell the people what a "jewel" is K. for me and start to read him...K. said:that's not the right way....

Does the phrase "living the teachings" have any meaning to you?

No..don't like this word "teachings" ....I think also K. did not like this word..Allan W.Anderson has said this in a dialogue with K. he said: "I know sir , you don't like the word "teachings"..............

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

a dialogue is very good ,I think so....but unprompted is alo possible....sometimes I discuss with friends/people...on a particular moment , I tell something and the other said: " He Jos,what you tell now is new for me , will you meet again to talk about that subject.."

If you had to sum up what Krishnamurti is all about in just a few words of your own, what would they be?

it's for me the most beautiful gift in my Life...feel now that I am a part of The Wholeness of Life...that I am a unique pixel in the Universe............

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

it will grow around the World..I think so ; especially to students all over the World..see that on Internet ..students in China are overwhelmed e.g. the book "The ending of Time" ....

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

I want try to do something in dialogue here ....but many times the "thinker" dominates...at first I will read the several comments here....

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

specially the last 5 years I realize that the mirror from K. has an overwhelming effect on my life and relationships ....more then 40 years I hidden myself behind a big "psychological" wall..now life is for me full of beauty...

personal study and dialogues...especially with Allan W.Anderson and David Bohm...have also good contact with other people here in my town....

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 am careful a little to do this ....personally don't like the word "teachings" ...when I realize something e.g. a special subject...I want to set up a dialogue with friends , not K. says this and K. says that. What I have read between the lines,that I will radiate to the others..of course not as an authority...
