2011 12 13 Satsang Jiddu Krishnamurti

Today's Satsang is approximately 70 minutes long and has one main component, a talk given by Jiddu Krishnamurti: "7th Public Talk, Saanen, Switzerland, 22nd July, 1979"

In Total Silence the Mind Comes Upon the Eternal

[Some of the topics addressed in this talk]
Why is there constant strife and seeking?
Are we seeking superficial sensory experience or something timeless that thought has not touched at all?
Can thought with its limitation enquire deeply? Is observation the instrument of thought?
When one observes does the thing being observed undergo change?
Can the mind having understood desire know its value is relative and be free to observe?
Is there a way of living without any control? Is not the controller the movement of thought?
When there is no conflict whatsoever what takes place in the mind?

  1. I hear Krishnamurthi saying that there is a separate way of experiencing reality when one does not engage either side of control (my way-highway) and only observes, doing nothing. I also hear him asking us to experience that state with him in "mind", not as "decision" (control again).

  2. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

    I think it may go even deeper than doing nothing, only observing. In one of his books, I forget at the moment which book it was, he said something that struck me as incredibly profound.

    He said, "Be the observation." That, to me, speaks of a surrender (relinquishing control), merging, the experience of oneness.
