January Workshop

What is Love? 

Days to January Workshop

Venue      Pune, Maharashtra 
Dates      January 9 - January 13, 2012

Workshop No. 7

We welcome your participation at our upcoming Workshop in January.


“You see, the educator is generally concerned about himself, he is caught up in his personal worries about his family, his money, his position. He has no love in his heart, and this is one of the difficulties in education. You may have love in your heart, because to love is a natural thing when one is young; but it is soon destroyed by the parents, by the educator, by the social environment. To maintain that innocence, that love which is the perfume of life, is extraordinarily arduous; it requires a great deal of intelligence, insight.”
- J. Krishnamurti

Usually love is understood in the context of attachment, jealousy, sentimentality, emotions. But is that love? Why there is no love in our relationships? What is that quality of love which is missing from our life? What are the obstructions to love and how they can be overcome? Does love necessarily involve sex? Why has sex become such an important issue in human life? Is love blind? Is love binding? What does freedom mean in the context of love? What is death and how is it related with love? Does intelligence necessarily imply love? Why do human beings suffer? Can there be an end to suffering? All this and more is the theme of this workshop.

What Love is not? (1979)
