Member Statement

It seems to me if one's movement in life has any sustained insistence that one pursue a direct experience of Omniscient Truth one must truly consider oneself priviliged to have discovered K's teachings. The fact they are available and perserved as written or spoken by K himself is the invaluable gift to us all who have discovered them. Direct and without interpertation for each of us this is his gift to the world. I now understand all the roads I traveled have led me to the here and the now. And, so it is with all of us in this journey of Awakening. To other friends who understand I warmly offer my very best regards.

How do you personally go about exploring the Krishnamurti's teachings (through personal study, dialogues, dvds)?

For me in my youth I had the privilege of meeting K and at that time there was a transmission of energy I can still recall. I still can only take small doses of his DVD's or his writings as there is no doubt to me those words have a germinating effect in the deeper psyche. I personally believe those teachings are many generations away from the magnitude of what they contain being comprehended by the human zeitgeist. I also believe he was fully aware of this. You can see some urgency and in his last years as our questions and ouor comprehensions fell so far short of the Truth he was trying to reveal to humanity, but alas we as humanity are where we are. I would only recommend one not waste any of one's time trying to argue for or against any of it for until we discover it for ourselves we are doomed to take someone else's word for what it might be.

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

He knew he was the messenger and he understood and accomplished his mission. The rest of us are still digging our way to the sunlight.

Do you think it advisable to introduce Krishnamurti to people you know? Have you ever done it and if yes, what are your experiences?

Very Difficult, I was much younger when I discovered K & the teachings and wanted everyone to grasp those truths. Many decades later I understand how truly an individual journey this is.
