Our concerns are threefold: to sharpen and deepen our understanding
of Krishnamurti's teachings, to investigate several broad topics
relating to the practice of his educational philosophy, and
to re-examine the doctrines of certain ancient Indian philosophers

in an educational setting. In this context, scholarship on
topics of a practical, philosophical, comparative and methodological
nature can be supported.
