Member Statement

From time immemorial, mankind has been struggling to get itself liberated from an invisible force within the psyche. Innumerable teachers have and come and gone after presenting their unique intellectual solutions to the problems of mankind. However, undoubtedly it was K, who gave a paradigm shift in the 'direction' of search for truth and freedom.

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

Though Krishnamurti's level of freedom could be similar to that of Buddha or others, he was exceptional in his expressions to give a near scientific and logical explanation to his state of mind.

The (theory of) transformation that K spoke of is universally accessible, but those who are interested and can afford may be less.

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

I think, sincere inquiry can arise both in organized dialogues and also spontaneously when people meet without any purpose.

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

K's works may have a bleak future in terms of sales or the like. However, K's concept will be advanced in future.
Generally it is the young, who begin and continue to read and discuss K nearly through out their lives. Popularity of the teachings may recede, as there is a continuous shift in expectations of newer generations, towards briefer, scientific and logical dispositions rather than philosophical and religion oriented ones.

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

Living the teachings means living like the teacher. But, it isn't possible until one becomes free.

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

As any one else, I too didn't feel it on my own that I was K-conditioned, but I realized only when others began to tell me. When I got rid of K- conditioning, I had also got rid of all conditioning.

K reading can not be the sole reason for conditioning. Generally most of mankind is already pre-conditioned due to their vulnerability, because of their fragmentation. K readers just shift in their dependence or conditioning to K.

Un-conditioned persons generally don't read K, as they don't find any need for change either in themselves or in others, as they don't find any challenges in life from the majority of human beings, who are conditioned and weak.
