Workshop/Retreat :: Sept 2019

The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a Study Retreat/Workshop from Sep 25th to 29th 2019. We cordially invite you to participate, if you are seriously interested in the teachings of J Krishnamurti. The intention of this Study Retreat is to create an ambience that would enable the participants to enter into a spirit of serious enquiry.
Details are given below:

  • Theme : Truth is a pathless land

"I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organize a belief. A belief is purely an individual matter, and you cannot and must not organize it. If you do, it becomes dead, crystallized; it becomes a creed, a sect, a religion, to be imposed on others. This is what everyone throughout the world is attempting to do. Truth is narrowed down and made a plaything for those who are weak, for those who are only momentarily discontented. Truth cannot be brought down, rather the individual must make the effort to ascend to it. You cannot bring the mountain-top to the valley. If you would attain to the mountain-top you must pass through the valley, climb the steeps, unafraid of the dangerous precipices. You must climb towards the Truth. It cannot be 'stepped down' or organized for you."
(From Dissolution Speech, Aug 3rd 1929, The Order of the Star in the East).
