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

What Krishnamurti is all about? -The discovery of wholeness within.

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

The interesting thing here is to wonder about what this universal is, because when it is seen that we ARE the world, the radical change in one IS universal by nature in itself..But, that change is never accessible to any SELF/past/knowledge/memory!

How do you strike a balance between healthy doubt and ready acceptance in investigating Krishnamurti's proposals?

Hm...interesting questions indeed the k-net is posing to us..:-)..There is no question of finding any balance between anything, when K's 'teaching' (or whatever else) is NOT met with thought/division. Then there is no acceptance of what he says, instead there is UNDERSTANDING of what he says, which is an altogether different matter. It is even beyond doubt, since no idea id being formed in the first place to be doubted!

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

It can only come about spontaneously, its nature being energy free from the past. No, cannot be organised, cannot be caused or brought about by thought. If it is, then the inquiry has already turned into a 'dog chasing its tail in circles' (to a closed thought-movement) before it has even begun!

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

No, although that 'no' is no conclusion, and one is always alertly looking into the possible emergence of the self which IS conditioning...beside the point if it is 'K-conditioned' or in however way..

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

No. Not because to understand it is to go beyond aspects, beyond anything that divides, beyond thought.

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

Firstly, there is no idea of what he himself seems to have allowed for with regards to practicability. Secondly, i cannot find anything more practicable than what he is pointing to, to action in the now without the distortion of the actor/observer. That is the ultimate practicability, the ultimate action without distance, without time.

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

The timeless essence of K's work or simply of direct perception does not exist in time in order to die away gradually.

One feels in one's life that at the moment one turns one's own look to eternity, that very energy brings others close who are drawn to do the one easily gets the feeling that true spirituality (=lack of identification with image) IS growing, spreading itself.It just never enters the world of the known, so to look for the known to find evidence of this spreading may be a dubious thing to pursue...

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

Relationship is essential, mirroring oneself through the other, the other through oneself, as one movement.

Two is a group already, and when the mirror is clear from distortion in relationship, the word 'group' falls away altogether since only oneness is left

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

A dialogue of fundamental nature is naturally and effortlessly born between two or more people, when there is shared love for that which is true. -It seems that only when this 'pre-condition' is shared (without that condition coming from thought as judgement of any kind), can K be introduced, and that also will come by itself.
