God save us all, please!
I'm just signing into this network and i'm already wondering why?!
Will the person who drafted these questions please put her/his hand up?
I'm only continuing in the hope i'll encounter an intelligent question, and beyond that some intelligent people to relate with here....

As more and more people get disinchanted with their lives, with all the sadness and grief the world is experiencing at the moment, they will eventually look within for answers. Spiritual teachings of enlightened ones like Krishnamurti will gain more prominence. Spiritual teachings will never fade away, it leads us to who we really are, Spiritual Beings.

I cannot foresee what importance will be given to them, but I see Krishnamurti's works as a bedrock of truth that is necessary to access and understand in order to resolve critical and recurring problems in the world.

Uniting in agreement withthe fathers, O Soma( celestial spring) you have extended yourself through sky and earth. Let us serve him with an oblation; let us be masters of riches.
Krishnamurti's works will live forever, with Vedas...

They shall exist so long as humans exist... that I am sure about... His teachings will continue to challenge people to seek to understand themselves...

The mind that projects an expected future has its place but consciousness gets so dominated by the projections of thought that the timeless dimension is lost or almost completely obscured. So I don't engage in much speculation

The future doesn't hold much for us individually or collectively since all things pass away. The question is not whether or how long K's works will be a factor in the future but rather what is the nature of consciousness? If we think we are going to end and we want to continue, we suffer and seek various forms of escape.

I have no idea about the future.

What does "grow in importance" mean? Does it mean, will more and more people discover K teaching? Or fewer and fewer? I would say that is not important.

What is important is that someone, maybe you, really, really investigates life. K teaching may be an important launching point. But life itself is discovery.

Because they are of such fundamental importance I think they will never die.

They will grow in importance if some people really live them and will die if they don't. However I somehow feel whenever there is genuine interest again they will come back to life.
The essencial point here is probably about a seed of inquiry alive somewhere whether or not in the human being.

This is a good question. I have often thought about this one. I don't exactly forsee anything, but I have a hunch that they will find their way around and expand their availability and findability in a quiet way. This is already happening. I don't think they will die away, not for a long time, not while human civilisation continues, not while there are still people around talking to each other and reading books. As long as the earth is reasonably habitable by human beings. How long will that be? That's another question!

Unfortunately we have a very sad historical experience of what we do with the teachings of the Budhas of the past. Will be behave in a more sensible way this time? I'm afraid that we will be as insane as usual and, in a few decades, some monks dressed in some excentrical garments, will be playing horns and all the rest out of the normal rituallistic paranoia.
Anyway, I think that me must try to study the teachings seriously, and, if we can understand some of their message, perhaps we would be able to help in producing a significant change in society, in time.

I think the work is running a great risk but that it is possible to hand it over to the next generation.

krishnamurti's is a man belong to entire humanity regardless of
cast,religion and nationality.
His teaching will ever persist as long as humanity exist in this world and it will never die because his teachings based on realities and not on belifes and dogmas.

Krishnamurti"s teachings are an immortal treasure and will remain relevant as long as there are genuine seekers of truth. .Krishnamurti"s teachings are like the text books and not ready reckoners. People looking for short cuts and an easy way out will find Krishnamurti difficult to comprehend. It is not for those who want to be spoon fed and are not ready to work on themselves.

However one must not expect Krishnamurti's teachings to be hugely popular. There is an unfortunate tendency among many to want to spread Krishnamurti's teachings and feel frustrated that there are not many people coming for the dialogues etc. It is important that we understand his teachings and live it ourselves. That should be our only concern. From our clarity we can act and do the right things without bothering about the outcome.

There are also people who think that Krishnamurti's teachings are unique and somehow different from Vedanta, Buddhism, Taoism etc.
We should with a free mind be open to all genuine teachings whether of the past and of the future. We must be careful not to make Krishnamurti into an authority and another sect. I have found that reading other books of Vedanta, Taoism and other contemporary teachers. have enhanced my understanding of K's teachings. and vice versa.

I don't know. I suspect they will continue to inspire men and women of action for generations to come. Works spawned by his writings will continue to cryptically inform society but the whole idea of importance may take on new meaning. In a way that would be importing his views, assimulating and exporting them in a more accessible form through various acts. From a slap in the face to a gentle nudging to wake up the sleeping creature evolving slowly from corrupted society. The word that comes to my mind is that his life and words will grow in appreciation. As one appreciates the mountain stream that gave rise to a raging river. His beauty, his nature, his vitality, his innocense, his vision, and indeed his suffering. Importance fits in the wrong world. A world that may not survive despite the import of words from one man. If his works do not survive because of lack of "popularity" who's works will? His works seem like a seed that has been planted. It will take a lot of destuction to destoy the offspring of these works. Perhaps there will be some new metamorphisus or mythology of his vision.
