‘What is sorrow? Why does one suffer? Will the discovery of the cause of suffering end suffering?’
This week’s episode on Sorrow has three sections.
This first extract (2:58) is from Krishnamurti’s fifth talk in Saanen 1972, titled ‘What is sorrow?’
The second extract (33:23) is from the first question and answer meeting at Brockwood Park in 1980, titled ‘Is suffering necessary?’
The final extract (53:44) in this episode is from Krishnamurti’s third talk in Ojai 1985, titled ‘There can be no sorrow with love’.
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.
