I would suggest checking of the educational center regardless of your beliefs since the location is so nice and representative of what you will find in Ojai. the history of how Krishnamuriti came to Ojai and even California is interesting.

The Center looks run down and not cared for. The library was closed though advertised as open. Felt sad seeing the condition as compared to several years ago.
