Bulletin 2017

A printed version of the annual KFA Bulletin is offered to a small group of supporters and includes previously unpublished material by Krishnamurti. Our archives houses a great deal of unpublished content, including audio recordings, which require some work to transcribe and verify. There are some compelling materials in the vault that will one day be put into book form. Click here to make a donation and receive next year’s Bulletin.

Every year we select a theme to focus on in order to align various programs at the Krishnamurti Center in Ojai and inquiry activities at the Oak Grove School. This year we’ve chosen the theme The Mirror of Relationship.

In this hitherto unpublished talk that took place in Saanen in 1979, Krishnamurti talks about “thinking together”. He points towards our inability to think together and implies at the same time that the acute realization of this inability brings about “thinking together.” He spells out that thinking together means to meet at the same point, at the same level, with the same intensity. Responding to a question from the audience, he states that you cannot try this, that trying is another trick of the mind to avoid. To consider “doing without trying” is a huge challenge for our brains which habitually base action on a progression of gradual improvement. Our brains are caught in time.

Krishnamurti connects the ability to think together directly with the need to bring about a good society in which we can live happily, without fear, without terror, without all the horrible things that are going on in the world. Can humans live a good life, not in the imagined future, but now?

We hope you enjoy Bulletin #91.
