‘The things that have been put in the churches, temples and mosques are not sacred, but yet we worship them. We worship symbols created by thought and pray to them. We project that which is sacred according to our conditioning.’
This week’s episode on The Sacred has four sections.
The first extract (2:35) is from the second question and answer meeting in Ojai 1982, titled ‘Is thought sacred?’
The second extract (10:26) is from Krishnamurti’s sixth talk in Ojai 1982, titled ‘Is there anything sacred in life?’
The third extract (39:20) is from the seventh talk in Saanen 1975, titled ‘The sacred is mysterious’.
The final extract (47:31) in this episode is from Krishnamurti’s fourth talk in Madras 1974, titled ‘Everything becomes sacred’.
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.
