Jiddu Krishnamurti Center

It's the pink building with all the plants and that creeper helpfully obscuring the signboard. The JK Center houses a large library of Krishnamurti's works, and celebrates what the Trust Secretary Aparajita tells me is his scientific approach to philosophy and his advocacy of change in the individual for change in society.

The tiny hall has a TV for frequent video screenings of JK's public lectures and dialogues with scientists, authors and other people of eminence, and is the perfect setting for the dialogues held every Sunday (the center is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, by the way) to discuss his teachings.

The center now has a new campus called Naimisam (a place in ancient India where people used to sit around and talk about the Upanishads, Smritis and stuff) in Kondapur where they plan to hold retreats for groups of people who are either interested in JK's works or are just looking for a peaceful weekend away from the city. The 20-acre campus spells serenity, and will have cottages for rent.

If you want to call yourself a member, there's an annual fee of Rs. 150 and a Rs. 200 deposit for borrowing books. There are more than 400 members in Hyderabad. The center also has a youth effort called Inscapes, with around 80 young people participating. They have eminent people giving lectures on topics ranging from music and dance to genetic engineering. They also recently had a workshop on organic farming, with our illustrious youth flinging dirt about.

If you're interested in Krishnamurti's work, you can visit and talk to Aparajita about the man and his teachings. She's sweet and calm.
