‘Seeing the whole structure and nature of dependence and how it makes the mind stupid, dull, and inactive, seeing of the totality of it, frees the mind.’
This week’s episode on Dependence has five sections.
The first extract (2:46) is from Krishnamurti’s second talk in Saanen 1967, titled ‘We all depend on something.’
The second extract (27:40) is from the second question and answer meeting in Saanen 1980, titled ‘Dependence in relationship.’
The third extract (44:58) is from the second question and answer meeting at Brockwood Park in 1985, titled ‘Where do we draw the line of dependency?’
The fourth extract (53:56) is from the second question and answer meeting at Brockwood Park in 1980, titled ‘Depending on others to understand.’
The final extract (59:59) in this episode is from the second question and answer meeting in Madras 1985, titled ‘Independence is necessary.’
Season three of the Krishnamurti podcast continues with the format of extracts carefully chosen from the philosopher’s talks. Each weekly episode focusses on a theme explored by Krishnamurti and the aim is to represent his different approaches to these universal topics.
