“I was partying and dating during my college days like all others but was feeling lonely. Some one suggested to undergo 2 months course ‘Mindfulness’ by Jon Kabat-Zinn. I experienced real happiness after learning about ‘Vipassana and Zen Meditation in that course.
My life changed forever when I got a book ‘The awakening of intelligence’ by Jiddu Krishnamurti in my book shelf.
My father works in the security department of Ambassador’s office and mother in a restaurant. I took a firm decision to travel all over the globe to seek wisdom and left my parents, elder brother and younger sister behind. The journey has brought me here in Mysuru. I am delighted to meet so many scholars,” said Jimmy Courcelles.
He is planning to visit all the major cities in India including Jiddu Krishnamurti’s institution in Chennai.
