Krishnamurti on Krishnamurti Schools

September 7, 2022

‘We saw the necessity of a new school. The meaning of the word 'school' is leisure, leisure in which to learn; and a place where students and teachers can flower as human beings, without fear, without confusion, with great integrity.’

This week’s episode on Krishnamurti Schools has six sections.

The first extract (2:39) is from the first question and answer meeting at Brockwood Park in 1980, titled: Why do you have schools and foundations?

The second extract (9:30) is from the first question and answer meeting at Brockwood Park in 1981, titled: Do your schools create an elite atmosphere?

The third extract (18:36) is from the third question and answer meeting in Ojai 1982, titled: Why do people object to Krishnamurti schools?

The fourth extract (36:03) is from the second question and answer meeting at Brockwood Park in 1984, titled: Do your schools give students an understanding of the total human problem?

The fifth extract (45:50) is from a public discussion in Ojai 1975, titled: Can teachers and students uncondition themselves?

The final extract in this episode (51:22) is from Krishnamurti’s fourth talk in Saanen 1974, titled: Can we end violence in our children?
