Rider Books has just published a new edition of Krishnamurti’s The First and Last Freedom, which we are able to offer you at a 10% discount. In his famous foreword Aldous Huxley writes that “[here] the reader will find a clear contemporary statement of the fundamental human problem, together with an invitation to solve it in the only way in which it can be solved—for and by himself.”

In The First and Last Freedom Krishnamurti touches upon a wide range of human experience, from suffering and fear, love and loneliness, sex and death, the meaning of life, to the nature of God and personal transformation – and consistently relates these topics to the quest for truth and freedom.

Annual Appeal Update

We are very pleased to announce that we have reached our goal for the 2013 Annual Appeal. With still two months to go to the deadline we have already reached our target of £100,000. This means that we will receive an additional £300,000, thanks to a generous donor. We are very grateful for all your support. It means the world to all of us here at Brockwood Park!

Celebration

To mark the end of the school year at Inwoods Small School the whole community gathered together for a wonderful summer camping celebration.

China

Brockwood Park School Co-Principal Adrian Sydenham recently visited China where he found a receptive audience eager to know more about Krishnamurti's educational vision.

A Different Revolution

Chinese interest in Krishnamurti is still growing. Thanks in large part to the efforts of Sue and Kang there are now 50 books by Krishnamurti for sale in China with 10 different publishers, with the best-selling book selling more than 100,000 (!) copies. Recent visits by the KFT and KFA have attracted standing room only crowds and there is even talk of starting a school. Read more.

K-Committees

This summer Krishnamurti Committees from all over the world came together at the Centre to exchange ideas and to discuss the challenge of disseminating the teachings.

Awareness

From Friday September 20 to Sunday September 22 the Krishnamurti Centre offers a weekend of exploration on the theme of choiceless awareness.

Freedom

Several of these 1968 public talks in Amsterdam have never been released. In them, Krishnamurti looks at the ending of thought, meditation, the meaning of life and freedom.
Krishnamurti Foundation Trust Ltd was established in 1968 as an educational charitable trust, to oversee the activities of the Foundation as well as to support Brockwood Park School, Inwoods Small School and the Krishnamurti Centre.
