not at all at the beginings, i understoud quite nothing, i understoud words but not the message direction.

Anyway, now i understand that conciousness is allways conditioned, that is the way of his "living".
We are conditioned by our karma, karma from parents because we come from them, conditioned by inside thoughs, sayings and act, if you understand that we are conditioned, your conciousness is aware, and your spirit beging to open himself to the vacuity.

i studied the bardos, i prepare my consciousness to be aware even during dreaming, like that when my consciousness will be free during bardo of death...perhaps i will be ready to recognise my own nature in front light ?

What is wrong in it. Afterall conditioning with all the negative connotation is but a stage in the whole process of existential movement of living and has been named so. The point is not to let it become hard, stable and stale but let it operate as and when necessary to make living alive.

Unconditioned even JK's teachings and if you want to call this conditioned by krishnamurti's teachings

Well...honestly speaking...I won't claim that I have clearly understood what J K has taught... But whenever I read his books/lectures/discussions, his words and his thoughts disturb my mind, like no other books/thoughts/teachings have ever done, and make me introspect about my life, my thoughts and my beliefs. I honestly believe J K's teachings have made me more 'vulnerable' to life, as J K would want me to. But, I don't know whether this 'vulnerability to life' that I feel now, is for real or just a 'conditioning of my mind' by his teachings.

The language that we use and the way we think is a result of accumulated knowlege and experience including the teachings of K. But is that all that we are or is there awareness that includes thought but is not limited to it?

The question "have you ever" assumes you are the "story of me." Is that what we are?

Probably most who have studied K teachings are conditioned by them. That is they are just integrated into the pre-existing stack of memories. A little bit of understanding may arise and then a falling back into the rut of conditioned existence.

However, if there is real understanding, then moment by moment conditioning is shattered. Awareness shines a light on any conflict that arises, conflict being indicative of conditioning. In the light of awareness, conditioning cannot hold. The conditioned self dissolves. Caring is. Spontaneous responsiveness. Love.

I do sometimes but it is just a conditioning like any other conditioning thet you need to get rid of by observing it.

I would say rather, that I have brought my conditioning to Krishnamurti's teachings. The ego has tried to use the teachings, to add them to it's cleverness.

He has just offered me the possibility of discovering how heavily conditioned I was.

I have felt this. I spent some time in the past trying to make myself into something more Krishnamurti-like, something Krishnamurtti-influenced. It was a disaster. It is the thing I regret most in my life. The physical after-effects of this blind alley are still with me. Right now, however, I do not think that any more conditioning is taking place by my interest in Krishnamurti's teachings. I may be wrong of course. But I'm always on the alert for this, so it doesn't creep in again.

NO, I have not felt that way, on the contrary.But I can never use many common words such as , I love you, I miss you, also I can not quote anyone's words or saying.In short I cannot use many words lightly, I find myself very careful in choosing words or saying things to people.

I don't know about others but personally with Krishnamurti and what he said and wrote from the very very beginning i was always feeling somehow "protected" but in the same time completely independent. I have thought more times again about this "phenomenon" and finally i feel that this happens because in my opinion Krishnamurti is love itself so whoever goes into what has said and written receives the absolute and unique quality of intelligence that love is, not intelligence constructed, created by someone but rather the heart of life itself, the unity of life itself from where arises, comes a sense of absolute safeness but simultaneously - because is not something constructed, invented by someone - of total independence. Concerning all this Krishnamurti himself straightly makes clear again and again that he is not an authority of any kind and that we are, i am with him to-ge-ther and that we have to lean only to ourselves but this word together includes in my opinion all the meaning and the supreme state of security as i said above.

Conditioning means 'set response to the approximate set stimulous...' like circus trained animals. it is out of unawreness of the present challenge... and causes conflict.. in meeting life

as there has been no conflict in life so far wrt teaching hence wud say that i havent been feel conditioned...

no. what i take from him, is like what i have taken from any other which is truth, a conditoned mind is trained, you cant teach or trained his methods, you must exercise them, put them to work, in real life situations, hes not going to be with me when im sad or angry,,

Sort of deconditioned would be more accurate.

There is conditioning by thought on thought but insight is of a different dimension and K helps with insight...
