These eight programs were produced and broadcast in America by the National Educational Television Network. They represent the earliest sound films of Krishnamurti speaking to audiences – it was the first time that he had allowed his talks and discussion groups to be filmed. The principle settings are the Oak Grove in Ojai, California, and the Thacher School in the Ojai Valley.
“We are taking a journey together into the whole psychological structure of man. Because in the understanding of that structure, and the meaning of it, we can then, perhaps, bring about a change in society. And society, God knows, needs a total change. A total revolution.”
Program Title: What is love?
Subtitles available in:
What is the state of the mind that asks a question? Who is going to answer it?
How does one find out what love is? Is love pleasure? Will the conscious mind find it out? If I make a conscious effort then I must have recognition of what it is.
To enquire, one must be free of belief, and therefore of fear. To find out what love is, one must enquire into the question of pleasure and desire. Thought gives desire continuity and vitality. This must be discovered actually for oneself.
Is it possible to look at something extraordinarily beautiful and merely observe, without the interference of thought? When thought interferes with desire, which becomes pleasure, then action is ‘time-binding’.
Is it possible to end suffering, without becoming hard, brittle, brutal? One has a network of escapes from suffering. Can I stop from escaping and look at suffering, get to know it? To know oneself is the beginning of wisdom.
