"There is chronological time and psychological time... The time by which we go to the office, keep an appointment, catch a bus, and so on, is entirely different from the psychological time that we build up through hope: I do not know, but I shall know; I am angry, but eventually I shall be in a state of peace; I am nationalistic, narrow, bigoted, but time will gradually bring freedom from this petty state.  Time is used by the mind to move psychologically from here to there and as long as this psychological time exists in each one of us, we cannot possibly understand what ending is... I am talking about the ending of psychological time, and this ending takes place only when the mind is not seeking, getting, arriving; it has understood this whole process, and therefore there is no tomorrow as the result of the experiences of yesterday." 

- J. Krishnamurti

Time is a very important factor in human life. To learn a language, to acquire certain skills, to become doctor, engineer, to achieve business goals, to go from here to there, to change from this to that needs time. This is what is called chronological time which is a fact of life. But we are so habituated to think in terms of time that we have extended this notion to psychological realm. We are jealous, afraid, violent, insecure psychologically and think that we need time to change all that. That is called psychological time. Is there psychological time at all or because we do not understand how to face jealousy, anger, etc. that we think we need time to change all that? Human beings have not been able to change psychologically through time because they are still what they were psychologically long ago. Is it possible to come out of this time trap and bring about psychological change in ourselves? How psychological time plays havoc with our lives and the possible ways to end it will be studied in this workshop. The book of dialogues between J. Krishnamurti and Prof. David Bohm titled: The Ending of Time will be used as the study material for the workshop. One of the aims of this workshop is to study these dialogues thoroughly. There are thirteen dialogues in this book which will be studied as two dialogues per day over a period of week.  


Books by J. Krishnamurti in English and the translated books in Hindi & Marathi 
will be available at the venue for sale. The book of dialogues between J. Krishnamurti and Prof. David Bohm titled: 'The Ending of Time' will be used as the study material for this workshop. A contribution of Rupees 5,500 per person is expected towards the cost of stay and food for the entire period of the workshop.
