Has humanity taken a wrong turn?
What is the root of this tremendous inward conflict of humanity?
When I am trying to become something, it is a constant battle.
Can the brain itself see that it is caught in time and as long as it is moving in that direction conflict is eternal, endless?
Can the mind realise, resolve a psychological problem immediately?
Has mankind journeyed through millennia to come to this: that I am nothing and therefore I am everything and all energy?
Time is the enemy of man.
Is there a beginning which is not enmeshed in time?
We said nothingness is everything, and so it is total energy. It is undiluted, pure, uncorrupted energy. Is there something beyond that?
Has man ever been free from the 'I'?
That emptiness can exist only when there is death of the particular.
Is the 'ground' indifferent to mankind, as the physical universe appears to be?
How does one find out if there is something more than the merely physical?
Why is it that theories are necessary and useful in organising facts about matter outwardly, and yet inwardly, psychologically they are in the way, of no use at all?
Seeking security for myself, for my family, for my group, for my tribe, has brought about division.
Why has man given importance to thought as the supreme thing?
If I accept I am irrational completely, I am rational.
What will make a human being change deeply, fundamentally, radically?
Will I, as a human being, give up my egocentric activity completely?
The more knowledge I have acquired, as I have evolved, as I have grown, as I have experienced, it has strengthened me, and I have been walking on that path for millennia. Perhaps I may have to look at this problem totally differently - which is not to walk on that path at all; to discard all knowledge I have acquired.
Explanations have been the boat on which to cross to the other shore. The man on the other shore says there is no boat. Cross!
What happens to me when I meet something that is completely solid, immovable, absolutely true?
Psychological knowledge has made us dull.
Why has having ideas become so important?
What is the difference between a religious mind and a philosophic mind?
What is the human mind's relationship to the 'ground'?
Why has man accumulated knowledge?
Unique talking style, provocative and evocative subject matter. Worthy worthy worthy. I am different having allowed a deep truth to penetrate my mind.

In this program Krishnamurti talks about topics that goes far beyond his average talks. If you have heard many of Krishnamurti talks or read some of his books and feel a little bit dissatisfied on the metaphysical perspective of his this audiobook will answer some of those questions and fill you with joy!

This is a set of conversations between Jiddu Krishnamurti and David Bohm, where they both try to get to the original cause of human conflict and suffering.
These conversations provide with a lot of insight into Krishnamurti's thought, through a very interesting format where he interacts with Bohm and others. The conversations' topics progress slowly, which makes them easier to follow.
You can tell also that the words they use are also very carefully chosen. There is an effort to speak in a clear and articulate manner, and that makes it quite nice to listen to.
Unclear. Indistinct. Poorly recorded. Poorly structured and most frustrating of all the questioner sounds like a moron who seems to have no idea what to ask next. A total waste of time and money.
