Free Your Mind

Imagine a life in which you are not encumbered by the run-away thoughts that plague so many of us? To be able to turn it all off and live instructed by the networked intelligence?

Listen to enough Krishnamurti and one day when you move from intellectual understanding to something far deeper, you will find out.

Life changing

Krishnamurti’s teaching is literally changing my life for the better and I’m really grateful to have come across it.

Real perspective

If you are ever going to listen to a podcast, go for this one! It gives you a perspective on almost everything in life, and one can see how fear, anxiousness, sadness are just projections of the thought. Thank you !!!
