Shibendu thinks very highly of Krishnamurti and use to meet with him and listen to his talks. As a matter of fact last year during the same time frame of this Q and A session that seems to be causing so much trouble with some folks, he told us of his first meeting with him, and how impressed he was! There is no doubt an influence there, though I fail to see it as something mean or wrong. I have known times when Shibenduji has actually recommended Krishnamurti' books, "Commentaries on Living", I think - but do not remember the particular volumes, to people who are asking about information on spirtuality. Actually if one would notice, Shibenduji seldom talks about Kriya practice in any manner in his talks. He feels it is a personal matter and should be kept private, as did Lahiri Mahasaya and other teachers. Most of what we have seen from the Lahiri Mahasaya quotes were taken either from private letters or his own private diaries, and not from public talks. Describing spiritual experiences without end on the net or any public forum is not desired and actually forbidden by most teachers. People talk about having a broad outlook and finding the truth in all things as part of the ideal, well Shibenduji has actually done it.

Maybe I will post some more of the Q and A session tomorrow.

Mike
