WAR: DIGITAL BOOKLET

Every war ends with the hope that there would be lasting peace. In five thousand years of recorded history, there have been more than 5000 wars. Peace is always short-lived. One would think that after two world wars in the 20th century, with an estimated 100 million casualties, we would have learnt our lesson well enough to avert war and live in relative peace. If anything, this world is in far greater strife — nations warring to annex more land, religions fighting to prove whose God is real, countries waging economic warfare to gain ascendancy, political ideologies  battling to be in power and thousands of other localized conflicts.

Why is it that despite our wanting to live peace and harmony, we find ourselves in chaos, time after time?

BOOK IN FOCUS

 

 

Many have considered Buddhism to be the religion closest in spirit to J.Krishnamurti’s spiritual teachings — even though this great teacher was famous for urging students to seek truth outside organized religion. This record of an historic encounter between Krishnamurti and a group of Buddhist scholars provides a unique opportunity to see what Krishnamurti had to say about Buddhist teachings.

OUR SCHOOLS

 

Education that would bring about a human being with a radically new consciousness was close to Krishnamurti’s heart. He set up schools in India, UK and USA. Today, the Krishnamurti Foundation India (KFI) runs six schools – Rishi Valley School (Madanapalle), Rajghat Besant School (Varanasi), The School-KFI (Chennai), Sahyadri School (near Pune), The Valley School (Bengaluru) and Pathashaala (near Chennai).    Know more >>
