How important do you consider group dialogue to be in understanding the more subtle points of Krishnamurti's message?

This is a good question, I have met K on a shell in a library in northern Québec, since I buy his book and read and never
met any one that has interest in K in my physical life.

So far I consider my personnel study very important in understanding
the more subtle point of K message.

I would have to say that i have not yet discover the important or the value of group dialogue, i am not sure that i understand dialogue that well. It has help me to crystallise or put into word my own thinking, help me a lot to improve my spelling in english but I don't really understand dialogue, I would need to look into this area.

Do you think it advisable to introduce Krishnamurti to people you know? Have you ever done it and if yes, what are your experiences?

I have done it many time, hoping that they would developed an interest,
but this has not work out. If I do put idea across from K without naming, people have interest, if I say Krishnamurti said: I loose there attention, they
associate his name with , guru, big spiritual organization.
Some time I introduce him has a philosopher Murti , this go better or I say I red an article in a magazine that say?.., people are more receptive then. In my experience people have difficulty with his name Krishna, not his idea. I have to be careful with his name. Also the timing is
important I have to let it happen, I can not push it.

Do you think Krishnamurti was exceptional, or is the transformation he spoke of universally accessible?

He was exceptional, in the sense that he was able to crystallize
all of this complex information, with scalpel precision, we are talking about the mind here. I also think that all the people that came after him and have organize his work
so that it can be protected and accessible is also exceptional.

I do think it is universally accessible, we can recognize
in his work that he is talking about all of us.

I would say the human have a great future in front of them, I don?t know how
long, or how it is going to be done but K work is definitely on the agenda for this world.
The human being will go for the best among us.

Do you think it is possible to make Krishnamurti more "practicable" than what he himself seems to have allowed for?

I do wander some time if there wouldn?t be some basic concept that would be useful
to understand when some one is being introduce to K, without falling in the trap of the 10 commandment. I will leave this question open and see which idea have been pillar in my process.

1- To better understand observation, to come to the realization that we project outside what we are inside, through observation has been a big deal for me, it does have a strong effect on the mind when you can see it work.
2- Today I can say that I have try to meditate many year?s before I met K, I must say is view on meditation, has been a big deal for me, it does make a lot a sense.

K talked about many thing but if I was ask to give explanation of two concept coming from K , I think they would be observation and meditation.
And I would like to add, that deeper I go into meditation and observation,
at the end of the day they seem a lot, like the same thing.
