Krishnamurti Part I. His Teaching

Mindfulness has become quite a popular topic in current culture, with innumerable books, courses, and teachers extolling its virtues. The eminent spiritual teacher Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986) took an important step forward in the twentieth century in the study of the transformation of consciousness, spearheading a practice similar to mindfulness, but he also functioned as an important transitional figure in the spirituality of the twentieth century. Many people turned to spiritual practice because of their encounters with his ideas and teachings.

Krishnamurti was a proponent of the practice of witnessing, which he called observation. He explored this practice in great depth in his talks and writings. Krishnamurti also discussed how the observer is the observed, pointing to a kind of realization that has not been understood much, even in the present day.

In this lecture, Almaas will illuminate Krishnamurti’s contribution to modern spiritual practice, exploring the role of observation without conceptual overlay.

The lecture will last approximately 45 minutes followed by a question and comment period.

About the Speaker

A.H. Almaas (Hameed Ali)A. Hameed Ali was born in Kuwait in 1944. At the age of eighteen, he moved to the US to study at the University of California in Berkeley. Hameed was working on his PhD in physics when he reached a turning point in his life and destiny that led him to inquire into the psychological and spiritual aspects of human nature rather than the physical nature of the universe. He left the academic world to pursue an in-depth journey of inner discovery, applying his scientific precision and discipline to personal, experiential research. This included study with different teachers in different modalities, extensive reading, and continuous study of his own consciousness in an effort to understand the essential nature of human experience and reality in general. Hameed’s process of exploration led to the creation of the Ridhwan School and, with Karen Johnson, resulted in the founding and unfoldment of the Diamond Approach. He is an author of over 19 different books.
