J. Krishnamurti - San Diego 1972 - Conversation 1 with Eugene Schallert - Goodness only flowers in freedom
Summary: Freedom is the negation of being conditioned by any culture, religious or political division. Religion is the only factor that unifies man not politics, economics -- instead of bringing man together religions have separated man. Is reality or truth to be approached through any particular religion? Harmony is not possible if there is any form of division, inside or outside. What is the source of this division as me and you, we and they, politically and religiously? Is it possible to completely empty the mind of the "me"? Reality cannot flower if the "me" is there. How is the content to be emptied with one stroke? The very perceiving is the act of emptying.
This channel is managed by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, UK, and by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America. The role of the foundations was described by Krishnamurti when he said, 'The foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities... nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person.' We maintain extensive archives of Krishnamurti's original works and all four Krishnamurti foundations are actively engaged in the publication of material in various forms. Our videos contain thousands of subtitles in more than 25 languages, translated by volunteers from all over the world. If you would like to help us with translating subtitles, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
