Workshop/Retreat in September 2018, at Study Centre
The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop for all youth between 18 and 35 years of age, for exploring questions of learning in the whole of life, based on Teachings of Shri Jiddu Krishnamurti.
Details are given below:
- Theme : Life and Occupation - The Challenge of Living in Harmony
- "The fact is that life is like the river: endlessly moving on, ever seeking, exploring, pushing, overflowing its banks, penetrating every crevice with its water. But, you see, the mind won't allow that to happen to itself. The mind sees that it is dangerous, risky to live in a state of impermanency, insecurity, so it builds a wall around itself: the wall of tradition, of organized religion, of political and social theories. Family, name, property, the little virtues that we have cultivated-these are all within the walls, away from life. Life is moving, impermanent, and it ceaselessly tries to penetrate, to break down these walls, behind which there is confusion and misery. The gods within the walls are all false gods, and their writings and philosophies have no meaning because life is beyond them."
(from 'This Matter of Culture').
- "Even in these times when everybody is harnessed to a particular kind of work, it is possible to find right occupation. Each one must become aware of the issues of wrong occupation with its disasters and miseries, weary routine and death-dealing ways. Is it not necessary for each one to know for himself what is the right means of livelihood?"
(from a talk at Ojai, California, 9 July 1944).
- Material and format:
The programme will consist of video viewing of Krishnamurti's talks, dialogues with facilitators and guests; group discussions of study material (based on the theme) which will be distributed along with the agenda; and Nature walks.
