Workshop/Retreat in Sep 2017, at Study Centre

The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop for those seriously interested in exploring issues and questions of relationship in the whole of life at all levels. Details are given below:

  • Theme : All Life is Relationship - A Living Study

  • All life is a movement in relationship. There is no living thing on earth which is not related to something or other. Even the hermit, a man who goes off to a lonely spot, is related to the past, is related to those who are around him. There is no escape from relationship. In that relationship which is the mirror in which we can see ourselves, we can discover what we are, our reactions, our prejudices, our fears, depression, anxieties, loneliness, sorrow, pain, grief. We can also discover whether we love or there is no such thing as love. So we will examine the question of relationship because that is the basis of love.
    (from 'Mind Without Measure' by J Krishnamurti, p 79)

    Relationship, surely, is the mirror in which you discover yourself. Without relationship you are not; to be is to be related; to be related is existence. And you exist only in relationship; otherwise, you do not exist, existence has no meaning. It is not because you think you are that you come into existence. You exist because you are related, and it is the lack of understanding of relationship that causes conflict.
    (from J Krishnamurti's Fifth Talk at Rajghat in 1949, India)
