‘I think this teaching covers the whole of human existence. It covers the whole of human life, from the physical to the most inward depth of human beings. So there is nothing that sets it apart as a cult. I personally look at it as a marvellous thing, not because I have said it, but because it is something extra- ordinarily life-giving. And that life-giving thing can never go dry. Like a wellspring, it can never go dry.’


The Study Centre has a wide range of Krishnamurti’s works—books, out-of-print editions, DVDs, audio CDs, translations in Indian and foreign languages, and bulletins and newsletters of all the Foundations. Besides, there are select books on religion, philosophy, and psychology.

What's New at Vasanta Vihar?

Date & Time : 18 Mar 2018, Sunday 6pm

Theme: What is a Religious Mind? – 5th Public Talk, Madras 1979.

The word religion implies gathering all your energy to discover what truth is, if there is something sacred in life. The temples, churches, and mosques are not sacred. To inquire into the religious mind, one must have the freedom to look, which means one does not belong to any religion. When you break away from tradition because you realize that it will never lead you to truth, that very observation is the operation of intelligence. Man has created the gods out of his fear. So one has to understand why thought has done this.

Theme : The Art of Living

“The greatest art is the art of living, greater than all things that human beings have created, by mind or hand, greater than all the scriptures and their gods.  It is only through this art of living that a new culture can come into being. This art of living can come only out of total freedom.” – J. Krishnamurti, Letters to the Schools

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.
