Jiddu Krishnamurti Foundation : Chennai

We had a great experience visiting 'Jiddu Krishnamurti Foundation' this weekend.The foundation popularly known as KFI has its head quarters at Vasanth Vihar,Greenways road,R.A.Puram in Chennai..After going through few works of J.K,I wished to visit this place since long time,but couldn't make it out till now.
It was a peaceful place with greenery all around..There was pin drop silence right from the entrance..In the immediate left,there is a Book store at the main entrance showcasing his works and Dvds of his speeches..The building has a big hall in the ground floor and a library upstairs..Apart from the huge database of Krishnamurti works,we can find various other works on philosophy in the library..
Here is the site link for more info :   http://www.kfionline.org/

My kids went to KFI school in Bangalore. I think I have been touched in some subtle way by his teachings and thoughts. Very interesting reading his works.
