Absolutely!
I generally gift books/CDs to people I know.
I've been fairly unsuccessful in translating the essence of the teaching but I do it anyway to polish my own awareness of the self and what K said.

I have and my experiences vary. The seeing comes from within, I have little impact on that.

I have done so, but only in the spirit of friendly sharing and never as imposition or effort to indoctrinate. Most people I've introduced them to have been quite struck by their clarity and the nature of the claims.

I did at first, like anyone. No one listens. I only would speak of it to someone pretty intelligent, and pretty discontented. I think a person has to be willing to give up everything to pursue this to the end and it is not at all common (not even sure if I could!). With most people I think it would just bring more useless conflict to tell them about K.

JK, I would say is a very dangerous man. He would not offer anything. Instead, he would strip everything off. We can partially understand him or think that we have understood him and keep on discussing all our life. But that has no significance. Unless I understand him truly I don't think I can introduce him to somebody. I have not come across anybody who is really serious and always ask myself whether I am at all serious in this?

It depends on the situation and the awareness of it. If people ask for information about K, especially young people, I feel it is most important to give one's "all" to respond to that demand. It could be a kind of sacred responsibility even.
However, usually I don't introduce people to Krishnamurti. In the same way K talks about Love being "dangerous" the Teaching might also be so. Perhaps we come upon it alone and in life's unique freedom.
Each situation and each person's life is different.

Yes, it has to be shared as water is.
In about 13 years, only 3 or 4 have showed a medium-serious interest. Most just do not care and a few think I am crazy.

When one has the urge to introduce a "Teaching" to another, one feels the falsehood which is what is generally felt and rejected. When in relationship, trust and affection the hints and references are pure, the interest is there.

Neither Dr. Perera nor his colleagues wanted to pursue this dangerously explicit dialogue.

I introduced K to some of people I know but most of them were unable to understand his teachings due to there condition and they were not interested to do a sincere inquiry because they afraid to do.
