May 2013 - March 2014 Workshops
Krishnamurti Education Trust is happy to announce its annual schedule of monthly study workshops for the period May 2013 – March 2014. You are most welcome to participate in one or more of this series of workshops.
These workshops offer a unique opportunity to study the ‘Teachings’ intensively around various themes together with the similarly interested persons. The participants are not rushed through a chain of events but have a very relaxed daily routine giving them ample time and leisure to be with themselves, to reflect upon their own lives, to go for long walks, to observe nature and to interact with one another. An atmosphere of inquiry, friendship and freedom pervades throughout the workshops. The programme includes silent time, screening of J. Krishnamurti’s video talks, group dialogues and self-study periods. The whole programme is in English; however depending upon composition of the participants, Hindi and/or Marathi will also be used occasionally during group dialogues. The participants can use any language during interaction with the other fellow participants. Selected passages from Krishnamurti’s works are recommended to the participants for self-study periods according to the respective themes of the workshops. However the participants are free to read any book of their choice from the study centre library.
The schedule below is for regular monthly workshops organised by Krishnamurti Education Trust in Pune. Although these are residential, day participants are also welcome. Apart from these, KET may organize additional workshops of various durations in Pune and other cities, the information about which will be circulated among the interested friends and will also be published on KET website from time to time.

“Those who really desire to understand, who are looking to find that which is eternal, without beginning and without an end, will walk together with a greater intensity, will be a danger to everything that is unessential, to unrealities, to shadows. And they will concentrate, they will become the flame, because they understand. Such a body we must create, and that is my purpose. Because of that real understanding there will be true friendship. Because of that true friendship—which you do not seem to know—there will be real cooperation on the part of each one. And this not because of authority, not because of salvation, not because of immolation for a cause, but because you really understand, and hence are capable of living in the eternal. This is a greater thing than all pleasure, than all sacrifice.”
- J. Krishnamurti
