First and foremost, we extend a warm "thank you" to all those who contributed to the 2013 Annual Appeal. It's exciting to share that we were inundated with support this past December. Your generosity not only demonstrates your personal investment in the dissemination of Krishnamurti's work, it also reminds us how many people continue to be impacted by his teachings. We are headed into the new year feeling inspired about the work we are doing to make these teachings accessible.
In the new year I also headed to China, where I am currently. For two weeks I am meeting with groups around the country for both talks and dialogues, as well as enjoying many smaller meetings with people who are very interested in Krishnamurti.
In late February we will continue our touring as we embark on the East Coast Tour: 2014. We will be visiting more cities than last year, so if you are on the East Coast please do visit the tour page and come join us when we are near you.
Also coming up shortly is our Annual May Gathering on May 10-11, 2014. We will begin to share more details with you in the coming months, and we hope you can join us. As always, the gathering is free.
Finally, our intern students completed a ten week in-depth study program with Willem Zwart from Brockwood last Fall and presented very interesting papers based on what they discovered during this time. Their papers are available here for you to read, along with videos of their presentations.
Best wishes in the new year.
"The search for power, position, authority, ambition, and all the rest are the forms of the self in all its different ways. But what is important is to understand the self and I am sure you and I are convinced of it. If I may add here, let us be earnest about this matter; because I feel that if you and I as individuals, not as a group of people belonging to certain classes, certain societies, certain climatic divisions, can understand this and act upon this, then I think there will be real revolution."
