A door open for anyone

During the last decade of his life, Krishnamurti urged the Krishnamurti Foundations in India, England, and America start study centres for serious adults, as he felt that most people in the modern world, being caught in their routine of office and home, do not have the leisure to delve into his teachings and take stock of their lives. However, he made it clear that studying his teachings is neither an intellectual exercise nor a theological pursuit, its sole aim being to bring about a deep, religious transformation in oneself. His vision of a study centre, his concern over its aesthetics and its inwardness, the responsibility of the hosts and the guests, the quality of dialogues, the nature of the religious mind, all these and many more form the contents of this book, which is of special relevance to those visiting these study centres.
