‘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.


The Bookstore in Vasanta Vihar sells Krishnamurti’s books in English, translations in Indian languages, DVDs and MP3s, all of which can be ordered by post or bought online on this website.

J Krishnamurti

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.
