The future of humanity depends on the survival of the teachings.If they fade away the human race also might fade away. So it is our responsibily that we live the teachings
I think it has hardly started. The teachings are the seeds of a new culture. Krishnamurti is a catalyst, because he has seen the absolute necssecity of this change more clearly than anybody else. But he is not the inventor. It is a logical, inevitable next step in the development of man. There is either that or degeneration.
Ifyou try to interpret it in the mystical tradition it will suffer, because it becomes exclusive and surrounded by humbug, but it will survive.
The chain reaction takes a long time in the beginning...
the truth of teachings have its own energy it will outlast false,
Krishnamurthi's works is timeless. It is a capturing of life as it is, in the reality sense;It is highly scientific and 'religious' in pace with and beyond the movement of the technological world; so there will be more and more growing recognition of its importance and relevance in the human consciousness with the passage of 'time'.
the essence will permeate, though not necessarily only through k's own words. which is good.
I actually do not foresee anything about the future of the teachings (nor I see the point of the question, I am afraid).
The future is not our concern we should attend to the now, this question, this answer and leave it....
K's works may have a bleak future in terms of sales or the like. However, K's concept will be advanced in future.
Generally it is the young, who begin and continue to read and discuss K nearly through out their lives. Popularity of the teachings may recede, as there is a continuous shift in expectations of newer generations, towards briefer, scientific and logical dispositions rather than philosophical and religion oriented ones.
Well, I hope K's works won't gradually die away. I hope on the contrary that it will grow of importance with all the progrss in neuro psychology.
I told one of my K friends that Kinfonet is going to bring about explosive difference in days to come. This forum has an immense potential. The beginnings of flowering of the teachings are happening. I have no doubts about that. Immense is the world I would like use. Great people are discussing. I feel very responsible and positive now than a month back.
They will fade away. Actually I feel what popularity they may have even now is largely rooted in a merely intellectual or ego-bolstering manner. As has become the case with the many various religious teachings. However, a teacher may come along who will make use of some of his works. Though not without warning others of their inherent limitations and errors.
It is good that same exist.Some people will find K's works and transform themselves but I do not see the majority being touched in the near future.
K's work will continue to grow for another millenieum.
Surely You are kidding!
Have you read any of K's dialogues?
Future melts in the Now.The question loses its relevance
They will certainly grow in importance.
The Buddha's message seems to have survived for 2500 years or more so why should K's not survive even longer since it is in simple untechnical language and must appeal to anyone with a bit of rationality in them or even a small spark of intelligence. I know when one looks at the world today one is appalled at the almost universal degeneracy one sees everywhere. But it may not be that bad - past ages have been even worse, I think - or is that wishful thinking? It all depends on the education of our youth. And that can only happen on a small scale since goverments are all basically sealed up and unavailable to any intelligent discourse.(I sincerely hope I'm mistaken). It may take an awful long time but I think the teachings will eventually prove their worth.
i don't know, is there a future anyway ?
Many other teachers are coming along with the same message and are much more concise and articulate. The message will continue perennially delivered through countless vehicles. Fewer and fewer people will be able to make a living of K's teachings.
neither. like a spring...will keep flowing.
they live with me
My sincere wish is that his works grow in importanceIt will never die.I feel his teachings is in the cosciousness although people do not know him.
Do you not think that concern with the future is a subtle way of avoiding the present? It seems to me that the prospect of a bright future is one of the ways in which the mind is able to bring comfort to itself. In the same way, the prospect of a gloomy future can bring upon the mind a terrible sense of cynicism and self pity. Both states of mind - for the sake of convenience let's call them hope and despair - mean that any action in the present becomes virtually impossible. The fact is that we are surrounded by tremendous psychological problems, none of which we have been able to solve or to wipe away in their entirety. So unless we solve these problems now then the future of K's works is a purely academic question because there may well be no future for humanity itself.
They may fade if they are watered down to make them more palatable. They may merge into all other 'guru promisings', and that would be tragic.
But as long as the K organizations maintain access to the teaching in all its purity, there will always be the few with the passion to find out.
they will grow in importance..........
