(KRISHNAMURTI SI) Responding to Contemporary World Crises: The Educational Work of J Krishnamurti


  • Shailesh Shirali


In this essay, I briefly describe my personal encounter and journey with the writings and teachings of J. Krishnamurti. I describe his approach to education, explain why it is radically different from the traditional one, and comment on its relevance to the modern human condition, which we may describe as characterised by very high levels of technological progress, coexisting with equally high levels of fragmentation and discord and unsettledness in human society, along with high levels of violence in our relationship with the natural environment. I also describe some work being done in this regard in the Krishnamurti schools.
