'If a question is left in the air, it is like a rose bud that gradually unfolds to show its nature and depth; it has its own vitality, energy and drive. That is a dialogue, not just accepting or rejecting what the other is saying.'
This week’s episode on Dialogue has five sections.
The first extract (2:34) is from the first discussion in Saanen 1976, titled ‘What does a dialogue imply?’
The second extract (6:15) is from the third discussion in Saanen 1979, titled ‘Good relationship in dialogue’.
The third extract (9:18) is from Krishnamurti’s third talk in Bombay 1978, titled ‘Don’t get caught in words’.
The fourth extract (15:34) is from the fourth talk in Bombay 1984, titled ‘In dialogue you and I disappear and only the question remains’.
The final extract in this episode (21:18) is from the first discussion at Brockwood Park in 1977, titled ‘A dialogue with oneself’.
Season three of the Krishnamurti podcast continues with the format of carefully chosen extracts 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.
