A wonderful, spiritual retreat that provides seminars and a library for research or purchasing books. I love coming here just to feel the peace and tranquility. Great place to renew your spirit.

This is the former residence of renowned teacher and philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti. Since his death his home is now called the Education Center. There you will find a library and an archive building where Krishnamurti's teachings and history are chronicled. This is not a place for a casual vacation.

I am always impressed and thankful when a resource is made public without charging the visitor. It is not about the money but rather shows an attitude, a desire towards betterment of the humanity. 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 road of self-inquiry and discovery. Nearby on a small hill is a pavilion where one can meditate with beautiful views over the valley. The entire place is wrapped in the scents from orange trees that surround it. This is a wonderful way to spend an hour or two in Ojai.

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.
