Workshop/Retreat :: June-July 2019

The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop from June 30th to July 4th 2019. We cordially invite you to participate in it. The intention of this Retreat/Workshop is to create an ambience that would enable the participants to enter into a spirit of serious enquiry.
Details are given below:

  • Theme : Freedom with responsibility is discipline: Krishnamurti on Lifelong Learning

"Responsibility has quite a different meaning when there is freedom. Responsibility does not deny freedom, they go together. When there is the deep fundamental reality of freedom, responsibility is concerned with the whole of life and not with one fragment of life; it is concerned with the whole movement and not with some particular movement; it is concerned with the whole activity of the mind and the heart and not with one particular activity or direction. Freedom is the total harmony in which responsibility is as natural as the flower in the field. That response is not induced or imposed; it is the natural outcome of freedom. Without responsibility, there is no freedom. To respond to every challenge out of freedom is responsibility. It is the inadequate response that is irresponsibility. The mind that is dependent in attachment becomes irresponsible to the whole.
So freedom is love, which in its very nature is responsible to the flower by the roadside, and to the neighbour whether the neighbour is next door or a thousand miles away.
Compassion is the very essence of freedom."
(From Chapter 66, 'The Whole Movement of Life is Learning' by J Krishnamurti).
