‘We are going to lose ourselves in organised religion, or in entertainment of every kind. As a result, humanity will become more and more superficial.’
This week’s episode on Entertainment has four sections.
The first extract (2:52) is from Krishnamurti’s first talk in San Francisco 1973, titled ‘This is not entertainment’.
The second extract (21:30) is from the seventh talk in Saanen 1964, titled ‘Are we being consumed by entertainment?’
The third extract (34:11) is from Krishnamurti’s fifth talk in Saanen 1981, titled ‘The world of entertainment is taking over’.
The final extract (43:18) in this episode is from the fifth talk in Madras 1981, titled ‘We have only two choices left’.
Season three of the Krishnamurti podcast continues with the format of carefully chosen extracts from the philosopher’s talks. Each weekly episode focuses on a theme explored by Krishnamurti and the aim is to represent his different approaches to these universal topics.
