Member Statement

I have been deeply interested in J.K's teaching since 1963. In 1963 a sudden transformation occured in my mind and everything I loved, cherished and considered important evaporated from my mind when I read a few talks of J. Krishnamurti. The whole thing happened in about 7 days time. Since then I have never looked back. I attended his talks in Delhi for two or three years and once I received an invitation from someone to be with Krishnamurti in 1985 winter in Madras - the oportunity I missed and I feel rather sad about it.

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 have done on very rare occasions because people are not interested.
they all want to maintain the 'self' and there are lots of gurus who do this job for them and that is very comforting to them. In just one or two instances I found that somebody took interest in this new revolutionary teaching.
