I am really slow in studying Krishnamurti's teachings. But to me the relevance of K's teachings is really important as each day passes by. I am beginning to see the value of asking questions and inquiring into things rather than remaining status-quo and/or sticking to my own ideas and notions. I feel the difficulty in living the teachings but nonetheless I absolutely see very clearly the tremendous importance of having these sacred teachings unalloyed, and available in their original, pristine form as-is, for eternity to all humanity. I desire to be with these teachings in order to really understand my self, so that right values can flow into and apply within all the spheres of my own daily life.

I haven't known a life without Krishnamurti and his teachings, since I grew up in his school at Rishi Valley. My life has been challenging and interesting because of my fortunate circumstances. There have been so many opportunities to meet people who are seriously concerned with life that despite the obvious horrors of the human condition, one feels emboldened to carry on.

Yes, it has introduced me to a new way of being. I have had glimpses of it ever since I first read K 10 years ago. At times, especially in the last year, these have been more than glimpses. I have felt that I am in this new way of being for prolonged periods, where everything is fresh and spontaneous, and there is an energy to live a beautiful life.

However, I see this slip through my fingers and I fall back into the old patterns of the ego. I do not see how, as K says, change is once and for all.

Although never had the opportunity to have personal contact with JK, his teachings still rings in me daily; especially when one sees the superficiality of life managed by thought.

I personally with Krishnamurti found what i was looking for in my previous life before discover him. All this time, all these years i'm becoming more and more conscious, more and more clear, purified and as a result of this gradually greater order restored, recovered in my narrow or wider environment. It is that one finds oneself gradually into a conscious and perceptive state of being.

I think it is rather that the inquiring mind will find triggers for inquiry wherever they are found. K offers many such triggers but only to the mind that is already inquiring. So, perhaps K has offered certain focus points for inquiry but, not knowing how my life could be anything other than it is, I cannot know if there have been any 'effects' that have led to my current condition or whether I could be other than what I am.....

Yes. I have listened to K in Madras starting from 1976 up till 1986 . He was the first human I thought who was truthful to what he said beyond the words and that opened up something deep inside me. Tears used to flow as I listened to him and I knew they had no meaning as they were bubbles of stored up emotions attached to my Ego which is an embodiment of all fears not mine in particular. To relate to the world and to all fellow humans one should listen with all the senses with out a chatter in oneself.

In the 40 years since I for the first time read something from Krishnamurti I'am sure there's an effect but don't ask me to sum it up because then it seems to be a collection and it has nothing to do whith that.
At this very moment I could say it still keeps me alert and learning.

Yes, it screwed it up for awhile until I freed myself from the teachings.

yes. I first read a book by Krishnamurti about 30 years ago and didn't get it at all. I was so arrogant that I thought it was nonsense (how could all my valuable life experience (prejudices) be of no value?! Two days ago "something" made me want to hear what he had to say again. And in chapter 1 of Freedom From the Known I found echoes of what I had already begun to think about the world and my place in it......I felt so much less alone, and not inferior to everyone else any more. Or to paraphrase K - no more dull, stupid,ugly,greedy of anxious than the average person.

On my life: immeasurably. On my relationships: hard to tell in what way.

Occasionally I have been in contact with people without an image involved, but this has little place in a world that believes in a concrete, if somewhat altering ego, self. Images dominate the world. However, it is nicer to be in contact with a person without having an image in the way. This seems to require a subsiding of one's own self. K's teachings have had a profound perceptible effect on my life, heightening the beauty of the earth, and one's own perception has grown larger over the years, actually. One's vision itself grows wider, silence, seeing, more deep, alive.

To a very large extent. Outside, to my friends and colleagues I am some what quite and calm. I talk very less. But within me it is really boiling all the time. I am very much angry, unhappy and discontented. I had been like this all my life, unhappy without any reason and searching for some solution. After reading JK, All my searchings for a solution have completely stopped. That itself is a great thing.
