Video Screening at Vasant Vihar

Date & Time : 10 December 2017, Sunday 6pm

Theme: Self Knowledge Alone Can Solve The Human Problems – Q & A 1, Saanen 1980.

“Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom, and without that self-knowledge you cannot go far; and to seek the absolute, God, truth, or what you will, is merely the search after a self-projected gratification. Therefore, you must begin near and search every word that you speak, search every gesture, the way you talk, the way you act, the way you eat – be aware of everything without condemnation; then in that awareness you will know what actually is and the transformation of what is – which is the beginning of liberation. Liberation is not an end. Liberation is from moment to moment in the understanding of what is – when the mind is free, not made free. It is only a free mind that can discover, not a mind molded by a belief or shaped according to a hypothesis. Such a mind cannot discover. There can be no freedom if there is conflict, for conflict is the fixing of the self in relationship.”

KFI Weekend Residential Retreat Dec 2017

Theme : Why Are We Frightened To Be Nothing?

“To be consciously anything is not to be free. If I am conscious that I am non-greedy, beyond anger, surely I am not free from greed, anger. Humility is something of which you cannot be conscious. To cultivate humility is to cultivate self-expansion negatively. Therefore any virtue that is deliberately cultivated, practised, lived, is obviously not virtue. It is a form of resistance; it is a form of self-expansion, which has its own gratification. But it is no longer virtue. Virtue is merely a freedom in which you discover the real. Without virtue, there can be no freedom. Virtue is not an end in itself. Now, it is not possible by deliberate, conscious effort to be as nothing, because then it is another achievement. Innocence is not the result of careful cultivation. To be as nothing is essential. As a cup is useful only when it is empty, so only when one is as nothing is it possible to receive the grace of God, or Truth, or what you will.”

Date : 29 – 31 December 2017

Quotes of Krishnamurti

An individual is one who is undivided in himself, who is non-fragmentary, who is whole, sane, healthy; also `whole’ means holy. When you say `I am an individual’, you are nothing of the kind. Live a life of no authority, of no comparison, and you will find out what an extraordinary thing it is; you have tremendous energy when you are not competing, not comparing and not suppressing; you are really alive, sane, whole and therefore sacred.
