I think they will always serve their intended purpose, which was to shake individuals loose from the popular (authoritative) "concreteness" of the common approach to thought - to spark independent thought. Or thought of any kind, regarding the subject matter - which isn't very popular at this point.

There's a nice story abouth two boys who grew vegetables.
One of the boy's was very careful and looked every day in the ground if his seeds grew.
The the other left them in peace and gave them once a week some water.
Who do you think had a crop after a while ?

They will never die but they will also not be popular since people are not interested in the truth, they are looking for satisfaction.Truth is often disturbing.

They will grow in more importance and Krishnamurti will be seen as one of the greatest seers to ever have existed.

Where there is future there is a past ! The importnce of growing is no solution at all!

Krishnamurti's observations about the true identity of self and about the importance of love for all people in the world are applicable any time. With the continuing new discoveries in neuroscience, Krishnamurti's comments about the thinking constructed world and the need to look for consciousness not put together by thought is being validated by the scientific research.

How does one make another see all this? They haven’t time, they haven’t the energy, they haven’t even the inclination. They want to be amused. How does one make ‘X’ see this whole thing so clearly that he says, ‘All right, I have got it, I will work. And I see I am responsible and all the rest of it. I think that is the tragedy of those who see and those who don’t

I hope to god they become the focus of every man. If they have been understood or seen with any importance they will never be able to die. Whether they grow or not is up to us i guess.

The teachings will create generations of human beings who are capable of independent inquiry.There is bound to be a turnaround of the psyche just like what happens after a ground breaking discovery in science. That is, we will break new ground by breaking away from all paths and yet stand our ground by being grounded in facts. Though we are grounded in facts, we are still moving. That is, when the mind is still, is there a movement? I say there is, and that movement is the movement of observation.

As a teacher in the 21st century where information downloading has become so prelevant but in many ways useless, I feel that Krishnamurti's stress on self-awareness., holism and genuine self-actualising creativity is paramount to the personally and indeed collaborative development of our students as human beings

Good lord, one hopes they will at least stay alive. Whether they grow, I don't think is important. The minority who are serious will always be the light. One hopes he will not become a religion.

Krishnamurti is concerned only with individuals and not with the collective. As the world deteriorates day by day may be , more people turn towards the so called spirituality. Some may turn toward JK as well. So JK's works will definitely grow in importance. So many so called Gurus also will get so much importance, more than JK because they will offer so many things that give comfort for the mind. JK has nothing to offer.

They are growing and in that growing there is dying.

Unfortunately nothing.. We are in a very important elbow of a time (07/2016).. It will change very rapidly. There will be race wars, fights, and killing but soon computers will begin to take over thought just as K spoke of. AI is already at human level, but it is being suppressed because the programmers want control of it.. Just as K spoke of.. It must be controlled for the same reason that there are wars and motives.. If not controlled it might go racist or politically incorrect. This AI will outstrip everything within the near future.. K will disappear as human minds atrophy.. They where incapable of understanding K in the past and they are already rapidly going to sleep and because of that will atrophy permanently.. A human mind in the western world is less than half as active as it was 25-30 years ago.. And the physical effects are also beginning to be present.

That I would also like to know, but I really do not. I hope it finally gets to everyone. It is so beautiful.

It is often seen that the perceived value of the work of a great person rises and falls per the ability of the population to receive. How many people are able to look upon the ocean and lose themselves in the waves, currents and the vastness? If humanity does indeed survive, there may be times when only a few will appreciate his work.

Already humans are beginning to awaken to the failures of all existing structures they had relied upon.
That there is no saviour out there.
This is the necessary survival instinct which is aided by K.'s guidance into a new dimension of awareness.

It will be on the hand of the people who are very well understand the K's teachings. They must express to others what they see by speach, writing or dialogue

In someways Krishnamurti is absolutely (a word buried in my letter box until now)right about changing ourselves changes the world. Seeing as I do, we are all ponds, and everything which drops on, or enter us, send out ripples affecting our structured position of conscious activity. The pond is our world, and any changes to our world caused by ripple motion stir up the sediment above and below of substance we are. We give the pond's life of our being to the fish, birds, vegetation, animals, minerals, and all creatures of need of our necessity. And to keep our pond life fresh and up to date, others waters must run through us to assure we do not become stigmatized. The future of all words is in knowing understanding is a part of consciousness, but what good is understanding without discernment. Ahh, so then understanding must also be a part of consciousness. Merge the two, and wisdom of individuality concerning righteous standards is foreseen.

Neither Dr. Perera nor his colleagues wanted to pursue this dangerously explicit dialogue. Some were now showing nervousness.
