The Krishnamurti Centre

Krisnamurti Centre

"if you assert and I assert, if you stick to your opinion, to your dogma, to your knowledge, and I stick to mine, then there can be no real discussion, because neither of us is free to inquire. To discuss is not to share our experiences with each other. There is no sharing at all: there is only the beauty of truth, which neither you nor I can possess. It is simply there."

J. Krishnamurti

Can there be goodness in laughter?

Friday, 6th December 2019 - Sunday, 8th December 2019

Krishnamurti said, 'If you don't know how to laugh at yourself you will never be able to laugh at all.' Echoing this point, he continues: 'one must be terribly honest, otherwise there's no fun in this. Humour is necessary, to be able to laugh, to find a good joke, to be able to laugh together, not when you are by yourself, but together. And we are asking ourselves what is love.' Contained in these aphorisms is an important essence of our humanity, one that can be shared and also one, as unexpected and seemingly unconnected like laughter and fun, that can be related to goodness and by association to love. This retreat will enquire into the nature of such a uniquely attribute, one not so often encountered but nevertheless present within the teachings and questions that Krishnamurti raises.
