‘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.’

- J KRISHNAMURTI



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.

Venue : Krishnamurti Foundation India, Vasanta vihar, 124 Greenways road, Chennai – 600 028.

Relationship is one of the most important things in life. Relationship between me and another, with many others, which creates society. In my relationship with another there is tension, a sense of division, guilt, possession, protection or responsibility. Apparently there has been, from time immemorial, conflict between you and me. Pain, attachment, jealousy, fear, and also sexual pleasure – the whole of that is implied in daily relationship. Why do we accept it?

Why are we hurt? Do you have an idea about yourself which can be hurt? Why do you have images about yourself or conclusions about something?

Do we actually want to find a way of living in which there is no possibility of being hurt?

Date : 20 – 21 Oct

Venue : Krishnamurti Foundation India, Vasanta Vihar 124/126, Greenways Road, Raja Annamalai Puram, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600028

The best introduction to Krishnamurti is Krishnamurti himself – his books, video and audio recording – and not interpreters and commentators.

Quotes of Krishnamurti

Goodness shows itself in behaviour and action and in relationship. Generally our daily behaviour is based on either the following of certain patterns – mechanical and therefore superficial – or according to very carefully thought-out motive, based on reward or punishment. So our behaviour, consciously or unconsciously, is calculated. This is not good behaviour. When one realizes this, not merely intellectually or by putting words together, then out of this total negation comes true behaviour.
