(KRISHNAMURTI SI) Rural Reflections: Krishnamurti in the Rural School


  • Carolyn Prest


This piece examines J. Krishnamurti’s and A. Andersen’s conversations as recorded in the work A Wholly Different Way of Living through the perspective of an educator in rural Canada. First, the paper discusses Krishnamurti’s concept of self-understanding and its role in his authentic living and his emphasis on nature. Next, it considers how rural students are especially well suited to achieving Krishnamurti’s desired state of self-understanding and attentiveness. The paper goes on to explore how this educator has begun to apply Krishnamurti’s teachings within their classroom in a way that makes use of their students’ unique strengths as rural citizens to begin their own journey toward Krishnamurti’s self-understanding.
