"What actually takes place when you physically die? You leave everything behind. You can't take anything with you. However many motives you may have for living, you can't argue with death. You can't say to death, "I still have to do this and that, please give me another month, another year". When death comes, it is there, absolutely and finally. You may believe in reincarnation, or in some other form of resurrection in the future, but all beliefs are irrelevant when you are confronted with the fact of death. And if you inwardly die to the psychological structure of society, to all the accumulations of the past, then you will find that death is creation - not the creation of the writer, of the musician, of the painter, of the scientist but a creation which has no beginning and no end. And without being in this state of creation, which is death, which is love, our life has very little meaning."
- J. Krishnamurti

As we live our daily life, we seem to accumulate a lot of memories which we carry with us all the time. Pleasant memories we try to remember while unpleasant memories we try to forget. It appears that the pleasant memories soon cease to give pleasure while the unpleasant memories continue to bother us indefinitely. However during the course of time both the memories are forgotten - then again new events, new memories and the new psychological burden. From time immemorial, human beings have been living with this great psychological burden. In fact, they seem to believe that to live means to carry this psychological burden - the burden of tradition, public opinion, strained relationships, good and bad acts, concept of God, all kinds of faith and so on. And technology has further contributed to this burden. A human being living with this psychological burden soon becomes a problem to himself and to others. Is it possible to live without this psychological burden? That is the main theme of this workshop. Also the questions like, what is psychological death, what is freedom, what is creation and how all these are related to love will be explored during this workshop. The workshop will be based on J. Krishnamurti's teachings.
