Each weekly episode in this season of the Krishnamurti podcast is based on a major theme of the philosopher’s talks, such as freedom, self-knowledge, beauty, intelligence and meditation. Extracts from our archives have been carefully selected to represent Krishnamurti’s different approaches to each of these universal and timelessly relevant themes.
