Interview Answers

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

Not sure I understand the question. All I will say is I can't find ANYTHING false in his teaching to this date. As to the person, I really don't care whether he was 'enlightened' or not. All I care about is the teaching...

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 impossible, his teaching is too deep for a few words...

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

All my real friends aren't interested in JK or spirituality at all, that's why I am back on this forum!!!

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

Essential, although I don't know if it is possible over a forum. At a study centre, yes it can be.

One thing that cannot be conveyed here is the tone of the words we say. It is easy to misunderstand others and take questioning as an 'attack' as opposed to a question for greater clarification.

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

Personal study, DVDs are best, then tapes. Problem with reading his books is that I often miss the intentional pauses. I remember when I first started reading I read one talk in 15 mins, when in actual speaking terms of the talk it was well over an hour. It's too easy to go too fast when reading. So DVDs & CDs best me thinks.
