This is definitely the case here, where the Krishnamurti Foundation offers lectures, books, DVDs about this impressive person who did much to inspire people on the... More

So happy to have finally made it over from the UK after wanting to visit for many years. The centre lived up to and beyond any expectation in its tranquillity and ambience of peace and deep intelligence. All the staff where extremely welcoming, kind and informative. I look forward to returning in 2016.

I really enjoyed my time here. Michael was very nice and informative. I watched a dvd of Krishnamurti and got engulfed in his philosophy. Great place to visit.

Ojai is a small town between Santa Barbara and Ventura. It's long been known to be filled with spiritualism, artists and health enthusiasts. The Krishnamurti Education Center is full of wonderful material, the grounds are lovely and Ojai is a very sweet town to explore; an outdoor bookstore, natural food store, lots of local artists selling beautiful things, hiking trails...

The Krishnamurti library, located in the home where Krishnamurti lived when in Ojai, houses a small collection of Krishnamurti books available for browsing and reading, as well as a bookstore with a variety of Krishnamurti and Krishnamurti-related books, CDs and DVDs. This library definitely is worth a visit for those who are interested in learning more about Krishnamurti or in... More

Worth your time if you want to do some inner exploration. Very nice site and facility, but wouldn't go out of your way if you're not there to do some learning.
