Workshop/Retreat :: December 2018
The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop from Dec 17th to 21st 2018. 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 : Non-accumulative learning - the essence of Right Education and Living
"Our difficulty lies in that we have built around ourselves. These conclusions are hindrances to understanding. If you go into this more deeply, you will see that there must be complete abandonment of all that has been accumulated for the being of understanding and wisdom. To be simple is not a conclusion, an intellectual concept for which you strive. There can be simplicity only when the self with its accumulation ceases. It is comparatively easy to renounce family, property, fame, things of the world; that is only a beginning; but it is extremely difficult to put away all knowledge, all conditioned memory. In this freedom, this aloneness, there is experience which is beyond and above all creations of the mind. Do not let us ask whether the mind ever can be free from conditioning, from influence; we shall find this out as we proceed in self-knowledge and understanding. Thought, which is a result, cannot understand the causeless.
The ways of accumulation are subtle; accumulation is self-assertiveness, as is imitation. To come to a conclusion is to build a wall around oneself, a protective security which prevents understanding. Accumulated conclusions do not make for wisdom but only sustain the self. Without accumulation there is no self. A mind weighed down with accumulations is incapable of following the swift movement of life, incapable of deep and pliable awareness."
(Talk by J Krishnamurti, Ojai, California | Fifth Talk in 'The Oak Grove', 1946).
