We never ask, never, how to live – to live with delight, with enchantment, with beauty every day. We have accepted life as it is with its agony and despair and have got used to it… To live completely, wholly everyday as if it were a new loveliness, there must be dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is. – J. Krishnamurti Freedom from the Known
The purpose of the retreat is to explore the fundamental questions of life as friends through open dialogues and discussions.
Watching a talk by Krishnamurti or reading something followed by a discussion would be the main objective of the day. However, one would always have an opportunity to sit alone in silence, observing life in its fullness in the majestic Himalayas, or go on long walks along the river with a friend and have a dialogue.
A few fundamental questions we will be exploring during the retreat are:
- Do we ever question how we live? Or are we all satisfied with the pleasures of life?
- Have we ever questioned the way we live, running endlessly in search of security, which we never seem to find?
- Does living mean pursuing aspirations, having ambitions, attaining economic security; being caught in the glory of one’s own culture, or is it something entirely different?
- Is there a totally different way to live, where intelligence and compassion operate in one's daily life?
