‘Why have we put death at the far end of one's life? Because we cling to what is known, and death is unknown.’
This week’s podcast has five sections. The first extract (2:12) is from Krishnamurti’s sixth talk in Ojai 1981, titled ‘What is the meaning of death?’
The second extract (11:36) is from the fourth talk in Madras 1985, titled ‘Living with death’.
The third extract (31:30) is from Krishnamurti’s second question and answer meeting in Saanen 1982, titled ‘What is it that dies?’
The fourth extract (42:34) is from the third talk at Brockwood Park in 1975, titled ‘What is immortality?’
The final extract (1:03:54) this week is an exclusive to this podcast, never being heard before outside of the archives. It is from a direct recording by Krishnamurti in 1984, titled ‘The extraordinary simplicity of dying.’
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.
