September 2012 Foundation Focus - KFA 

Greetings from Ojai,

We have just completed composing the new edition of the Foundation Focus, our bi-annual printed newsletter which will be mailed to all those on our mailing list. In addition to the events calendar and updates on the various activities at the Educational Center (KEC) and the Oak Grove School (OGS), this new edition contains an intriguing article by the British actor Terence Stamp describing various encounters he had with Krishnamurti. A pdf of the latest edition can be downloaded here. For the full version of our articles we created a blog which you can find here.

Several construction projects are being completed this month to improve the KEC campus, and  to enhance the rooms and facilities of the Pepper Tree Retreat. To accommodate the many visitors from out of state and from overseas, we expanded the opening hours of the Library and Pine Cottage, Krishnamurti's home.  

"Habit and meditation can never abide together; meditation can never become a habit; meditation can never follow the pattern laid down by thought which forms habit. Meditation is the destruction of thought and not thought caught in its own intricacies, visions and its own vain pursuits. Thought shattering itself against its own nothingness is the explosion of meditation. This meditation has its own movement, directionless and so is causeless. " 
- J. Krishnamurti's Notebook, p.213

Sincerely,

Jaap
