"love is total negation. We don't know what it means, we don't know what love means. We know what pleasure is, we mistake it for love. Where there is love there is no pleasure. Pleasure is the result of thought. Obviously. I look at something beautiful, thought comes in and begins to think about it, creates images—watch it in yourself—and that image gives you a great deal of pleasure, or that scene, or that feeling. And thought gives to that pleasure sustenance, continuity, and in family life that is what you call love—which has nothing whatever to do with love, you are only concerned with pleasure. And therefore where there is a pursuit of pleasure there is imitative continuity in time—please listen to all this—whereas love has no continuity, because love is not pleasure, and to understand what love is, to be in that state, there must be negation of the positive."
- J. Krishnamurti

Human beings though developed technologically are still primitive psychologically. All their attempts to overpower their psychological nature by the use of knowledge have been in vain. They have not been able to bring about fundamental change in their psyche. May be a completely different approach is needed here. J. Krishnamurti has suggested the approach of negation not only to bring about psychological change but also to make room for the eternal qualities of love, compassion and intelligence. What is negation? Does it mean rejection or denial? How does one negate? How does negation lead to love? What is love? Why is it so important in human relationship? What are the factors which go against love? What is falling in love? Why does it usually end up in hatred and breakup of relationship? All such questions and associated phenomena will be taken up for exploration during this workshop.
