‘The modern world is becoming very, very complicated, and one must therefore make one's own life extraordinarily simple. That simplicity demands a great deal of intelligence.’
This week’s episode on Simplicity has three sections.
The first extract (2:57) is from Krishnamurti’s eighth talk in Bombay 1962, titled ‘Simplicity and virtue in a complex world’.
The second extract (25:07) is from the seventh talk in Saanen 1965, titled, ‘Simplicity comes with the understanding of sorrow’.
The final extract in this episode (56:17) is from the first talk in San Francisco 1984, titled ‘Complexity must be approached with simplicity’
Season three of the Krishnamurti podcast continues with the format of extracts carefully chosen 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.
