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

Everything in his teaching is implausible if you take it verbally; everything is an enormous challenge for human mind.
Just the first attempt to accept or to deny something from his teaching immediately destroys truth and makes the entire teaching to a mess- to gathering of logical contradictions.

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

When we understand deep enough the essential principles of his kind of meditation this contradiction evaporates as well as disappears the necessity to balance on a ?rope of doubt and positive disposition?- both are wrong eventually. Only understanding the wrong so as it is may open to human being the world of truth.
This question is just another side of the question of ?acceptance? or ?denying?.

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

Combination of both this factors may lead to an unexpected success.
At any rate, if you are expecting something, whatever it might be, you can get anything but truth.

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

Honestly, I have no slightest idea what he has allowed or prohibited.
Allowance and prohibition might belong to any human teaching but Krishnamurti?s.

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

I can foresee a ?chain-reaction? in growing of importance all around the globe. It is just inevitable; there is no alternative for human being to survive.

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

Well, I have already represented explicit enough my vision of Krishnamurti and his teaching in your previous forums as well as in the forum of KFA.

The essence is the ?Negative approach to the truth? based on his kind of meditation; that is all.

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 it for some tens of years and have a greatest experience of reactions, including I have met people who have had the same experience of that extraordinary state of truth he was talking about.
Generally, introducing of Krishnamurti teaching to people must be strict individual and very careful. I can remember, he used to say to his dialog partners like that: ?You must be careful by asking me. You can open a door in yourself which you can never close again?.
You cannot bring this kind of teaching to the masses as a new Gospel; any sole individual may come to the teaching however, of course, they need to be informed about existing of that sort of teachings.
