The Foundation

Established in 1968 as an educational charity, Krishnamurti Foundation Trust exists to preserve and make available Krishnamurti’s teachings, as well as to support Brockwood Park School, Inwoods Small School and the Krishnamurti Centre.

Krishnamurti Foundation Trust serves a global audience by providing free access to Krishnamurti’s teachings to everyone around the world.

The role of the Foundations was described by Krishnamurti himself when he said,

The Foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities… nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person.

The Foundation is not a religious organisation nor does it have any spiritual authority but it provides a service to those who may be interested in pursuing an understanding of Krishnamurti’s teaching in their own lives.

The staff of the Foundation work in close cooperation with Information Centres in Britain and Ireland, Committees around the world, and the Krishnamurti Foundations and Centres in America, India and Spain.

The Archive

The Foundation maintains an extensive archive of Krishnamurti’s original works in the form of handwritten material, books, transcripts and audio & video recordings of thousands of talks and discussions, meetings and conversations. There is also a collection of Krishnamurti’s letters, photographs and reference material about him, his life and works. All this requires special techniques of preservation and the care of trained archivists.

Publications

The body of Krishnamurti’s work is enormous: some estimate it at more than 100 million words. His talks and dialogues have been compiled and published in more than 80 books and translated into over 60 languages. Krishnamurti’s books are well known and include The Ending of Time, Freedom From the Known, The Book of Life, Commentaries on Living, Education and the Significance of Life, The Awakening of Intelligence, Beyond Violence, and The First and Last Freedom

Media Production

Krishnamurti Foundation Trust has been responsible for most of the audio and video releases over the last decade. After digitization, we have carefully produced the talks and discussions versions and made them readily available online or in download and DVD formats. Around 600 titles exist on video, along with hundreds of audio recordings. We are also releasing carefully selected extracts from his talks and Q&A meetings.

Bookshop

The Krishnamurti Foundation Trust Bookshop is dedicated solely to publications by and about J. Krishnamurti. The shop is not for profit – proceeds are used to help the Foundation’s aim of preserving and making available the works of Krishnamurti, and to support Brockwood Park School and the Krishnamurti Centre. We aim to stock all books that are in print, along with selected biographies and audio and video DVDs, MP3s and downloads. The shop is part of the Krishnamurti Centre, and can also be accessed online.

International Committees and Information Centres

Committees played an important role in the pre-digital era and were essential in disseminating the work of Krishnamurti, distributing books, showing videos and holding dialogues. Today, due to digital dissemination their role has changed. Committees assist us with translation work, receiving legacies on behalf of KFT, and making people aware of the teachings by organising dialogues, retreats and activities in their own language.
