Audio | J. Krishnamurti – LO67DSG3.2 – London 1967, Small Group Discussion 3.2, What are we educated for?

What do we mean by education?

Is the purpose of life just to become a factory worker, a professor in a university?

It is tremendously important to find out what we are training a child for before we train him.

Is life meant to be survival at any price or is life something of such immense significance which demands freedom first?

The individual is conditioned by the state and culture, but man is much more than the individual.

Do I look at myself as an individual or as a human being?

Is there a school that treats each child as a human being?

What am I living for?

The mind has to investigate why it refuses to see something deadly. Is it afraid of change, afraid of what might happen after?

This channel is managed by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, UK, and by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America.

The role of the foundations was described by Krishnamurti when he said, ‘The foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities… nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person. ‘

We maintain extensive archives of Krishnamurti’s original works and all four Krishnamurti foundations are actively engaged in the publication of material in various forms.

Our videos contain thousands of subtitles in more than 25 languages, translated by volunteers from all over the world. If you would like to help us with translating subtitles, please contact us at
