J.Krishnamurti Online.

Philosophy

J.Krishnamurti Online is a unique initiative of the four Krishnamurti Foundations (KFT, KFA, KFI and FKL) to make the teachings of J. Krishnamurti available and freely downloadable and to guarantee authenticity.

Site Content

The site guarantees the authenticity of a large text collection of all of Krishnamurti’s published works from 1933 to 1986, the equivalent of 200 average-sized books, all site content being searchable and freely downloadable in text format.

After Krishnamurti left the Theosophical Society, he began to travel extensively giving public talks and holding discussions in several places, from important cities like London, Paris and New York to small rural towns in India. These were published every year as 'Verbatim Reports', starting from July 1933 and going on till 1967. Later, in 1992, the Krishnamurti Foundation of America put them all together in 17 volumes and republished them under the title The Collected Works of J. Krishnamurti. Those are also included in this site.

A selection of video and audio is also available in streaming format, and future plans include adding previously unpublished work to the online text collection, and expanding the video and audio capacity.

Site updates

This new website is offered to the public in Beta form as an ongoing project, since there is a vast amount of further work that can be done to expand its features and content. Almost 50% of Krishnamurti’s lifetime work remains unpublished, and will eventually be added to the site’s resources.

The site will be updated periodically, new content will be added every two weeks and users can subscribe to the newsletter to be kept informed of future developments and news.

You may remember the story of how the devil and a friend of his were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket. The friend said to the devil, "What did that man pick up?" "He picked up a piece of the truth," said the devil. "That is a very bad business for you, then," said his friend. "Oh, not at all," the devil replied, "I am going to help him organize it."

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 coerce people along a particular path. - (link)

Krishnamurti could go toe-to-toe with most Lamas, and was, IMO, one of the century's great gurus.
