" We are the mankind. When we realise that, not intellectually, not verbally but deeply, profoundly as something terribly real, not as something romantic, emotional but something that is actual in our daily life, then what is our responsibility to the wholeness of mankind? Put yourself this question. One feels responsible for one's children, wife, husband, girl, boy whatever it is, because you are intimately connected with them. You have to bring them up, education and so on, earn a livelihood, feel a certain amount of security, so you gradually restrict the wholeness of life into a small narrow little groove. And having such mentality one is disinclined or repulses, puts aside the responsibility to the whole of mankind, not only mankind but to the earth on which we all live. We are responsible for all that, ecologically, economically, spiritually. But if we cling to our little images, however reassuring, comforting, satisfying, then we bring about a great fragmentation in our life and that prevents all of us from seeing the totality of mankind."
- J. Krishnamurti

Is human life fragmented, separated into billions of individuals, each living his own separate private life? Or is life one movement as a whole? We may differ physically, e.g. we may have different colours, bodies, languages, cultures, but psychologically are we different? Is each one of us an isolated separate individual or are we always related to everything around us? Is this relationship fragmentary or does it have altogether a different significance as a whole? What is the wholeness of life? How does one realise it in one's daily life? What effect this realisation has on one's day-to-day life? All such questions will be taken up for exploration in this workshop. Understanding one's individual life as a part of the totality of human life will be the main focus of this workshop. The enquiry will be based on J. Krishnamurti's teachings.
