The Study Centre

A Place of Solitude and Tranquility

The Study Centre, Bangalore provides an atmosphere of reflection and inquiry into a deep study of the Teachings. Speaking on the need for Study Centres, Krishnamurti said, “As I see it, a Study Centre has become a necessity because that is the place where the treasure is right? The treasure. From that treasure you can draw. You can draw your strength, you can draw your energy, you can draw your sustenance, nourishment, and so on.”

The Study is placed in a quiet side of the Valley, a lush green land of 100 acres. Set in a place of great natural beauty and silence, the Study offers a simple and austere way of living for seekers of truth.

The Study Centre has an eclectic books library and DVD collection of J. Krishnamurti’s talks and dialogues. There is no instructor or schedule to follow. One may spend time in retreat or listening or sitting quietly by oneself. Regular organized retreats, gatherings, and education related seminars are arranged throughout the year.

“It is really very important while you are young to live in an environment in which there is no fear. Most of us, as we grow older, become frightened; we are afraid of living, afraid of losing a job, afraid of tradition, afraid of what the neighbours, or what the wife or husband would say, afraid of death.”
– J.Krishnamurthy
