Some do know a little about it but usually in connection with Krishnamurti.
Generally, people think it's some kind of sect or so or anyway a very difficult
(obtruse) philosophy

Well, sometimes I give a little bit of information, bit by bit and not
too technically. The Spiritual is something that many people still can
relate too (I mean when talking on such topics). Also I refer them to
introductory books. I don't try to 'convert' anybody of course.
That would be a horrible idea..
