When the late J. Krishnamurti was heralded as a vehicle for leading humanity into a new age, he repudiated the notion saying, “Truth is a pathless land, you can’t approach it by any religion or sect. You are accustomed to being told how far you have advanced, what your spiritual state is—how childish. Who but yourself can tell whether you are beautiful or ugly within.” Krishnamurti wrote and lectured for seven decades on the essential problems of the human condition. This extraordinary conversation is no exception. Here he addresses love, greed, violence, separation, time, death, conflict, and fear, discussing them all with a clarity and insight that makes the entire landscape appear newly visible and replete with possibilities. Additionally, Krishnamurti has much to say about the source of our problems, both personal and planetary, with appropriate comments on how to resolve inner conflict. A priceless visit with an illumined mind. (hosted by Michael Toms) This is the second of two dialogues with Krihshnamurti. The first dialogue is program 1782.


J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986) is regarded as one of the foremost thinkers and religious teachers of all time. However, he did not expound any philosophy or religion. He spoke about the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption, of the individual's search for security and happiness, and the need for mankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt, and sorrow. From 1929 until his death in 1986 he traveled all over the world speaking spontaneously to large audiences. He engaged in dialogues with religious leaders, scientists, professors, authors, psychologists, computer experts, and people from many different backgrounds deeply questioning their daily life. His talks and dialogues have been compiled and published in more than fifty books and translated into as many different languages. There have been many books published based on his lectures, dialogues and presentations.
