Dear Friends,

Things are very busy here at the foundation as we prepare for the May Gathering, a two-day event that will take place on May 10 - 11 and the subsequent International Trustees Meeting that will be held here at the Krishnamurti Educational Center in Ojai directly afterward. 

We are happy to be hosting it this year so close to the time of the May Gathering, because many trustees and international scholars who are coming to attend will also be facilitating and participating in the programs. Many of them knew Krishnamurti and have studied his works intensely, so we look forward to their involvement.

The contribution of every individual who comes to these annual gatherings are the fabric of what makes the weekend of inquiry so interesting. We look forward to seeing you. If you would like to participate in the lunches that are served each day, it is good to purchase in advance.

Also, we have quite a variety of programs being offered this summer that you can see below, including our new Explorations into Freedom Intensives toward the end of June, and Educating the Educator soon after in the end of July.

We have searched the global archives for those moments when Krishnamurti was exceptionally clear about a particular theme.
