Truth & Life!

Listening to Krishnamurthy made me see how my whole existence involves just moving from one pattern to another pattern superficially. Like he says, transformation is not a journey in time, but it has to be out of time. I listen to K’s talks and this podcast over and over again, each time it is a new fresh flower full of life that makes me see things that I have never seen before. Huge thanks to Krishnamurthy Foundation for keeping this podcast and YouTube channels going. The Foundation stayed true to K’s message and never ever tried to alter or interpret it. I think it is very crucial for his voice and talks to reach future generations!

Self Journey

Listening to these podcast every time is nothing short of a spiritual journey that takes one’s self towards questioning the foundation of everything that one’s ego or identity is built on. For me over coming the fear of questioning and being honest with myself has helped a lot but again.. nothing of these experiences can be put in words ever and so be it.. no effort.. nothing to prove..

Morty Morrison ,

Wonderful.

Humanity is fortunate to have this wonderful collection of talks. Thank you Krishnamurti for your dedication to truth.
