“Is there a way of living our daily life that is entirely different from what it normally is? We all know the usual. Is there a way of living without any control, without any conflict, without a disciplinary conformity? How do I find out? I can only find out when my whole mind is facing exactly what is happening now. This means I can only find out what it means to live without conflict, when what is happening now can be observed. This observation is not an intellectual or emotional affair but the acute, clear, sharp perception in which there is no duality. There is only the actual and nothing else.”
- J. Krishnamurti


We live a mechanical, conditioned life. The daily routine, boredom, problems in relationships, conflicts, tensions at home and at working place, constant pursuit of pleasure, struggle for achievement, all this interspersed with occasional joys and moments of happiness seems to be our daily life. Is this all life is about? Are we happy the way we are living? If not, then what are we doing with our life?  Is there a way of living which is completely different from that described above? How does one find out? What is the deeper significance of life? What is the purpose of human life? Can it be realized in our daily life and not remain just as an intellectual concept? A journey of exploration into our own daily life and the possibilities beyond will be taken up in this workshop. If you are not happy the way you are living and want to explore the possibility of a deep radical change, you are welcome for this workshop. This workshop does not promise change but invites you to join the exploration into the depths and expanses of human life.  Although the teachings of J. Krishnamurtiwill be the basis, its prior knowledge is not required to participate in this workshop. The approach will be based on understanding of our daily existence leading to the findings of J. Krishnamurti.
