The Krishnamurti Foundation of America

October 2012

 
This Week at Oak Grove School - October 14-20, 2012
Dear Friends, 
 
As you know, Krishnamurti's teachings illuminate the sacredness of our lives and the fulfillment of our human potential. The mission of the Krishnamurti Foundation of America is to inform the world of these words and to create spaces for inquiry, reflection, and community. October is the month of our Annual Appeal for your financial support to continue this important work. 
 
Every night on the news we see political and religious beliefs dividing the human race. In print and online we see how popular culture promotes the essence of life as buying and selling, excessive consumption, and distraction through entertainment. We see in our own neighborhoods a growing isolation, an apathy, and a diminishing of compassion. I am deeply concerned about this. 
 
Krishnamurti's teachings are a sane departure... He said that we are one human family, that each of us represents all of humanity and must take responsibility for it. Krishnamurti points to dignity, to an impersonal human intelligence, and to the essential dimension of life that is outside of profit and pleasure. The teachings center on education and learning, emphasizing that each one of us has to first change, and that this movement will inevitably bring about a larger change. Our world is in a critical phase and these messages need to be shared with all those who will listen, all those who will think on them. 
 
Please consider making a donation. Your support can accomplish a great deal - from ensuring that Krishnamurti's teachings are available around the world to educating the coming generation at Oak Grove School, from operating our vibrant Educational Center for adults to preserving these words for future generations in our Archives... much is happening and we fully intend to keep up the pace.

With gratitude,

Krishnamurti woke up from the dream of consciousness that we as a human family have inherited a thought-based consciousness that appears to be the result of a progression of distortions...

Observation of oneself through a place of stillness and silence is a gift.
Having this freedom to play in my childhood allowed me to fully experience the natural beauty and movement of what it was to discover and learn for myself....
