K's teachings along with other enlightened masters, have had a major influence on my life, with meditation, reflections and most importantly to self enquiry.

Of course... a teaching with such a deep sense of true it's impossible to not have influenced my life. I'm really grateful to have find this incredible man and his words.

Would the effect not be conditional upon the perception of the observer?

yes, to again borrow from K himself, I'm o.k. with it, meaning of course life.I I find that when i stay in the present moment, I do not worry as much, when I do not make everything a personal issue, I am without serious conflict.

Read K`s teachings at an early age, then swept along the tides of time with K`s incredibly sharp images always there, as a light in the storm to show the way, but only as an untouched path to discover, each instant of my life!!

The assumption in this question is that there is validity in evaluating one's life and that there is growth. If you really understand K's teachings, doesn't all that end?

My lectures were very much objective and sometimes i could generate or transmit the deep awakened silence with my student audience...and before all that(when i was conditioned) it was a storm in my relationships.

I was a practicing Hindu... Krishnamurti's teachings have led me to understand that most of the Hindu beliefs (beliefs of all other religions too, for that matter) are merely dogmas and superstitions...I no longer go to temples... I find more peace...has become more accommodating towards other people.

What is it that gives impetus to inquiry including contact with K and the teachings? That is the cause and the effect. In short, I am nothing, the other is everything. It is the conditioned/utilitarian mind that asks what have I got out of this? There is the joy of being and the richness of emptiness but that is a blessing, not an attainment.

Yes, it has had a positive impact on my life - I accept situations and people just as they are - no longer judgemental in my thoughts and ways. My children have benefited increasingly on a daily basis by being in a Krishnamurthy school - simple living and high thinking environment has definately done them a world of good and if their basics are strong and deep rooted, they cannot but turn out positive and independent individuals with their heads placed firmly on their able shoulders.

Yes. It saved me from some kind of breakdown in my 20s (several decades ago). I don't know what would have happened if I hadn't come across K's books then. It doesn't bear thinking about. It made the difference between life and death to me, quite probably literally the difference between life and death. Very perceptible, in other words. The effect of coming into contact with K's teachings continues to this day. If his teachings weren't free, I'd owe him a lot!

Of course. I was rather young then (about 12) and my life has never been the same: the teachings of K. have given to me the certitude that something could and must be done if we don't want to destroy ourselves.
I abandoned catholicism and all religious beliefs and started an endless journey to unveil the purpose of life and the real sense of words like freedom, love, morality, etc.

Of-course theres been effect , perhaps a feeling of being isaolated somewhat and unsociable at times only to keep a job.Ihavent any desire to socialise and find people dull and unneccessarily relentlessly shallow and careless .Im not holding it against anybody but most people seem not to question life , to follow pleasure as k had pointed out.Theres no real religious impetus and need to enquire due to increasing external stimulus and avoidance is sustained.Our world is disintegrating ignorance is the status quo.

I don't know. It certainly seems as though it has put me more in touch with my depths. The most frightening keys were of course turned by my own initiative. Krishnamurtti may have forced my hand. How can I know that?
