THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION. LOTS OF INFO IS DROPPED IN THIS PAGE IN THE DAYS AHEAD AS I SORT THROUGH 3 GB OF MATERIAL ACCUMULATED TO PUBLISH WHEN I FIND TIME. The Last Circular Around Krishnamurti's Work
For a period of several years I wrote circulars around the work of J. Krishnamurti - from philosophical ideas to commentary on his organizations, etc.
At some point the Friedrich Grohe Gang took over (via his employee Rabindra Singh and their poor choice as usual, Jaap Sluijter) the core of power at KFA and KFA which was already poorly managed, fast-tracked downhill and got doomed as a hopeless organization in my book.
At the end of 2020, I was called on to investigate disturbing reports at KFT (Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, UK). It took two years of investigation, as a part of a task force that included former trustees and close friends of Krishnamurti, former students, staff, parents, volunteers donors etc., and some seventy (70) testimonies, for us to get to the root causes of the issues, which turned out to be with a weak board of trustees, and Friedrich Grohe & his Gang, Again!

Grohe has helped the foundations but I think he's hurt them even more. That's discussed extensively in this document: Friedrich Grohe and his Gang's Influence Mongering.
We've submitted our findings (a 330+ page report) to the UK Charity Commission to see if they have the might to uproot the rotten status quo.
After 2 years of work (not full time, but still, a lot of work), for no pay, and having to endure KFT's idiotic attacks and empty threats and bogus police reports which the police didn't pursue obviously because KFT had no case (and it got proven that KFT lied to the police) and a recurring theme of dealing with a vicious group who's living so contrary to K's teachings, and is trying to hold to power and big money it controls at any price (see our 330+ page report to understand what KFT was willing to do to people), I am so incredibly fed up with the entire official K world that I need a big break.
So for now, let us say this is the final circular. Since the last circular, I've gathered material for a publication, but once I deemed KFA to be hopeless, the topic became non-time-sensitive and I was busy with other things -- but now it's time to empty my digital consciousness and move on.
I'm authoring multiple articles at the same time.
The organization of this circular may not be optimal but like I said I'm fed up with the entire topic of how human greed and stupidity dragged down the work of a great man -- which is something K himself predicted but now we're witnessing it live!
Reza Ganjavi on Radha Sloss's Garbage Book
I wrote about Radha Sloss's garbage book in my 2014 circular but didn't mention it by name so as to not give it publicity. But now I see people like Jaap Sluijter, Rabindra Singh, Raman Patel, Nasser Shamim, Mina Masoumian, Bill Taylor, Antonio Autor, all of whom are part of Friedrich Grohe gang or his extended circle, and KFT Trustees Derek Hook, Wendy Smith, Gary Primrose, Mark Lee, etc. are doing more damage to K's legacy, in my opinion, than Radha Sloss ever could. So why not mention her.
Radha Sloss was the daughter of Rajagopal (see my article on Jaap Sluijter where I claim Jaap is the worse thing that happened to Krishnamurti than even Rajagopal (https://www.rezamusic.com/writings/on-j-krishnamurtis-work/Why-Executive-Director-of-KFA-Jaap-Sluijter-Is-A-Disgrace-To-Krishnamurti). Krishnamurti had a long term affair with her mother, Rosalind Edith Rajagopal, (née Rosalind Edith Williams, 1903–1996). They were like family - the three of them - and Rajagopal was gone long periods at a time and was not having sex with Rosalind.
Rosalind was a beautiful lady and her and K loved each other a lot - and I'm sure they had a great time. Some people were disappointed when the book came out because they had made a false image of K which showed they hadn't studied him. They were saying, oh he was against sex but he had sex. That's so untrue.
My view of K actually improved because it was further evidence that he was a human - as well as a super human. See section on Albion Patterson below about K and sexy films.
K had told some close friends about this relationship. It's nobody's business anyway. Did you expect he would announce it in his annual talks? It's a personal matter.
Radha Sloss, waited till K died, because in some jurisdictions you can't defame a dead person, and she wrote a most horribly illogical book called "Lives in the Shadows". People liking tabloid were thrilled by it. She was so incredibly stupid in her arguments. It was clear she was trying to connect dots that didn't exist, in order to trash-talk K because of K's conflict with her dad - which wasn't about her mother but about K's publications which her father had stolen.
It was no secret that K had a long term relationship. He told some of his close friends about it. It's a private matter anyway. Radha's account on the other hand is not an expose, it is a nasty, malicious character attack of a man who is dead and can't defend himself.
Her book is filled with logical inconsistencies: conclusions that simply do not add up. A book by someone who totally missed the boat for those who've missed the boat and are looking to rationalize it. Radha wrote to me that ultimately because of freedom of speech she can say anything she wants. That's how she justified the logical inconsistencies!! Too bad she didn't have the guts to do that when K was alive.
ARTICLE IN PROGRESS
Also Albion Patterson told me K and him used to go to movies that had sexy scenes because K said he likes to see his animal side come out so he becomes aware of it
Before he passed away in his 90’s I used to visit Albion Patterson, an old-time friend, scholar, trustee, and housemate of K’s. He used to say, from time to time, that in these circles, there is too much talk, and not enough study, which has proved to be true over the years.

Carlos Diaz's Important Contributions
Carlos Diaz is serious and passionate about the Krishnamurti's work, and has a scholarly, critical, diligent mindset. He's intelligent and competent. He is from Argentina but lives in Australia. Carlos has probably researched the subject of K's Spanish translations more than anyone. He had some grave discoveries and informed the foundations / copyright holders of gross violations of Krishnamurti's wish to not be interpreted, distorted, which Carlos alleges happened in many Spanish translations, and even in other non-K books translated by the FKL. He also identified lack of transparency in accounts, self-perpetuation, self-nomination, etc.
Carlos' investigations spanned over 4 years. Carlos' writings and correspondence with the foundations, etc. can be found at this link:
Subtitling of my interview with Scott Forbes
He also sub-titled the interview I did with Scott Forbes who was Krishnamurti's closest friend together with Mary Zimbalist. K trusted Scott and Mary more than anyone.

Reza Ganjavi's Response to Kumar Swamy
Very loaded question -- "we" receiving "sacred" is a loaded concept by itself which assumes separation... the opposite is also loaded, i.e., that there is no separation...
Then the concept of being condemned to live in sorrow -- that's very loaded.
And then assumption that a certain condition is needed to supposedly receive that supposed sacredness by supposed entity that's separate from it...
And reference to the sacred by Krishnamurti or Joe Blow or X or Y makes no difference if that which is pointed to is something a person has never come in touch with, in a simple setting of life, whether it's in the smile of a child, a simple act of love and caring, a quiet night perceived with senses fully awake, etc etc
So I feel that question can be stripped and distilled...
