“It would be useless for you and the speaker to listen to a lot of words, but if we could together take a very long journey, not in terms of time, not in terms of belief or conclusions or theories, but in examining very carefully the way of our lives, fear, uncertainty, insecurity and all the inventions that man has made, including the extraordinary computers. If we take a long journey into this, where are we at the end of two million years? Where are we going, not as some theory, not what some wretched book says, however holy it is, but where are we all going? And where have we begun? They’re both related to each other: where we are going, where we begin. The beginning may be the ending. Don’t agree. Find out.” 


- J. Krishnamurti


Krishnamurti Education Trust is happy to announce its annual schedule of monthly study workshops for the period June 2017 – March 2018. You are most welcome to participate in one or more of this series of workshops.



More Information About Workshops Here or Contact Us.


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 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. 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 bKrishnamurti Education Trust in Pune. Although these are residential, day participants are also welcome.

"We have talked about a great many things related to our personal life, a life which is common to all humanity, with all the problems, the confusion, the misery, the conflict, violence; and many other things. And I hope it will not be merely a verbal description, but each one of us will face the actuality of our daily life and find our for ourselves if these teachings have any direct relationship in our life. Otherwise it would be such a waste of your energy and time and money to come and sit here. And, if I may suggest, one should take these teachings as a whole, not take bits of it what you like and reject the others, it is a total package, if I may use the modern word. And considering what is happening in the world - politically and all the appalling things that are going on - unless one radically as a human being changes fundamentally we will not be able to help humanity. And it is very important that we should not follow anybody, join any group, belong to any sect, but be concerned with the whole of mankind, the global problems of life. To understand this enormous complex problem, one has to be a light to oneself. And this light cannot be found through another, whatever they may say, however popular they are, whatever circus. But one has to be free from all the authority, fear and so on. What is important is, the first step is the last step. I hope you understand that. The first step that one takes is really the last step."

- J. Krishnamurti
