The June 2022 issue of India’s respected magazine, Education World, 深入探讨克里希那穆提教义的重要性和相关性,以及他对学生和成年人的全球影响. 

Below is an excerpt from Education World’s website.

这位哲学家、预言家和教育家诞辰127周年 J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986)在5月11日悄然而至(如果有的话). Even on the tranquil, 位于钦奈的克里希那穆提印度基金会(KFI)的瓦桑特维哈尔校园,占地6英亩,郁郁葱葱, 也可能是克里希那穆提在英国建立的基金会, USA and Spain.

也没有在六个中心和排名靠前的小学中庆祝这位有远见的圣人的诞辰,由KFI在全国设立的270名高素质教师指导的学生达1000名. 这是因为在他漫长的一生中,他发表了很多公开演讲, engaged in discussions with teachers, students, Vedantists, Buddhists and other religious seekers, 他接受媒体和电台采访,他自己的作品被编辑并压缩成80本书17卷,内容涉及哲学, education and art of living, JK(大家都这么称呼他)反复强调,重要的是信息本身,而不是信息本身.

“What is said, is important, not the person. It is like if you have a telephone, you don’t give importance to it, you keep it clean, but what is said through the telephone becomes all important. 同样,在这里讲话的人也一点都不重要. I would like to point this out over and over again,” said Krishnamurti, 谁在他的一生中一直劝阻热心的追随者将他提升为大师或邪教人物.

The trustees of the Krishnamurti Foundation India (regstd.1928) have assiduously respected the philosopher’s wish. KFI位于金奈高档郊区Adyar的Vasant Vihar校区是KFI兼学习中心的行政办公室,JK在这里发表了关于教育的演讲, living and spiritualism for over half a century, 书店和JK精心保存的卧室里挂着深褐色的照片, 他的雕像和雕塑明显缺席. 中央花园的一块岩石标志着克里希那穆提半个多世纪以来发表演讲的地方.

“The prime objectives of KFI are dissemination of JK’s teachings to the general public; acquiring, 保存和出版他有关生活的作品和资料, education and research; rural upliftment activities including education, village health and livelihood programmes; promoting afforestation, water conservation and eco-friendly practices, 并根据克里希那穆提的教诲开展文化和人道主义项目. 我们在六个学习中心实践他的教诲,其中包括金奈的五所男女合校寄宿学校和一所走读学校. Essentially, JK believed that children need holistic education, 定义为智力的不断发展和为转变为与人与自然和谐相处的有序生活的良好人类做准备. 这是他的教训,是我们在根基上竭力守住的, our schools and study centres,” says Vishwanath Alluri, 他曾是一名注册会计师,后来成为IMI Mobile Plc和IMI Software Pvt的连续技术企业家. Ltd). In 1995, Alluri在访问KFI的Rishi Valley学校期间顿悟,并深深受到JK的教育理念和教学的影响. In 2014, 他成功地退出了自己的生意,并致力于宣传克里希那穆提的“和谐国家建设教育理念”。. In 2021, Alluri was appointed trustee-secretary of KFI.

在JK去世后的36年里,KFI受托人相当成功地保持了JK的教导和遗产. KFI’s Chennai campus is open to visitors from 9.30 am to 5.每晚30点(周二至周日)学习JK出版的作品,观看各种主题的视频演讲,每周有300次访问量.

文章还引用了足球买球官方网站中学校长乔迪·格拉斯的话:

“JK’s message, which addresses the basic human experience, is as alive and relevant today as it has ever been. 他的教导表明,没有任何方法或蓝图可以实现我们尊重每个学生的天生智慧的使命. We approach his intent, therefore, with openness and inquiry, opportunities for self-reflection, silence, pure observation, physical and psychological space, exploring our relationship with nature, ourselves, others, and the world. All this could be seen as within the realm of understanding, 作为一种唤醒孩子个体完美智慧的方式.”
