Krishnamurti Part II. His Experience

Most academic disciplines leave our personal lives as a purely personal matter. While engineers and scientists may privately hold religious views or engage in spiritual practice, their public work stays separate. However, this is not true across all fields, professions, or disciplines. The lives of our religious icons and spiritual teachers are usually seen to inform their work in impactful and intriguing ways.

In the case of Krishnamurti, the teachings of this 20th-century spiritual master can’t be truly understood without understanding the man and his inner transformation.

Krishnamurti did not bring up his personal experience while teaching, yet his life was a highly unusual one. Adopted as a youth by Annie Besant (of the Theosophical Society), as an adult he kept no home but chose to travel and lecture, producing a vast body of work. Anyone with the good fortune to hear him talk toward the end of his life, when he was suffering from prostate cancer, could see the amazing and lively intelligence, the vital energy and clarity of mind, the dynamic, robust presence of the man himself.

In this lecture, Almaas will explore Krishnamurti’s inner experience, including the headache that lasted most of his life, and the possible reasons for it. His was an unusual kind of spiritual transformation, which will be instructive for many these days, for it points to uncommon kinds of spiritual potentialities.

The lecture will last approximately 75 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.
