The Krishnamurti Foundation of America

October 2013

This is the Annual Appeal for the Krishnamurti Foundation of America.
Dear Friends,


We are starting this year’s annual appeal for the Krishnamurti Foundation of America.Donations to the annual appeal span across the work of the foundation: the school, educational center, publications, tours, and every aspect of the work we do to preserve and disseminate Krishnamurti's teachings.


There is Space, which all of our work points toward....
...Space - the physical places and opportunities to learn about oneself, whether young or old.
...Space - the leisure to look inward, and the importance of having this leisure in our lives.
...Space - the state of the mind when there is psychological freedom.


Click here to visit our annual appeal and donate to the foundation.


Our monthly theme weekends have been active, with participants travelling both short and long distances to participate in dialogue and exploration. In January we will be holding our Study-Intensive retreat with new facilitators, a week-long opportunity to delve deeply into the subject of "Listening: The First and Last Step to Freedom."


So, space indicates, does it not, where there is no centre and there is no periphery, there is no boundary.  Have we such a brain that one doesn't belong to any thing, attached to anything - attached to one's experience, conclusions, hopes, ideals, and so on, so that the brain is really, completely free?  Right?  If it is burdened, you can't walk very far, you can't go very far. 

[J. Krishnamurti, Brockwood Park, September 4, 1983]
