The Krishnamurti Foundation of America

February 2013

Krishnamurti Foundation of America campaign in Asia

For most of us this is the time to make our plans for our holidays in the Spring or Summer. I would like to use this opportunity to inform you of several events at the Educational Center. Beginning April 7 we have another week-long Intensive Study Retreat titled “From Fragmentation to Wholeness”. On May 11 & 12 we have the Annual Gathering launching the new theme for the year “The Mind in Meditation”. And our Educating the Educator program will be from July 21 till 27.

 

We are in the process of scheduling a series of programs on the East Coast. On June 28-29 we will be in New York and the week after we visit Maine. In that same time period we visit Alabama and maybe Florida. Besides some public events, the Think on These Things (TOTT) program will engage with students at universities and youth in general. Have a look at the latest posted video of TOTT which features an excerpt from the first TOTT interview conducted in Spanish.

 

With sadness we report that Dr. Sarjit Siddoo passed away at her home on February 21, 2013 at West Vancouver, B.C. Canada. With her sister Dr. Jagdis Siddoo she founded and ran the Krishnamurti Education Centre Canada from 1975. Krishnamuti visited the Centre and Wolf Lake School in 1976 and spoke to students and faculty there. The Drs. Siddoo, including Dr. Chanda Siddoo, have been responsible for the dissemination of Krishnamurti’s teachings in Canada, and the Swanwick Centre near Victoria continues to be open for retreats and dialogues. Dr. Sarjit Siddoo was widely known for her passion and tireless efforts in support of the dissemination of Krishnamurti’s work.

 

“Meditation means the establishment of order in one's daily life, so that there is no contradiction; it means having rejected totally alI the systems of meditation so that one's mind is completely free, without direction; so that one's mind is completely silent. Is that possible?"

[J. Krishnamurti, The Network of Thought, Amsterdam 20th September 1981]

 

Sincerely,
 
Jaap

Children wish to be treated fairly and they have problems with perceived unfairness. They have effusive and unrestrained
capacity for expressing both
hurt and compassion, and they
enjoy the calm of equity and
