J. Krishnamurti – Madras (Chennai) 1973 – Public Talk 3 – Order is essential for survival

Order is essential for the brain to survive and to function rationally, healthily, objectively and effectively.

Why do you believe that there is a God or in anything that you hold dear?

When a disorderly mind chooses, what it chooses must be also disorderly.

A life that is lived in fragments is disorderly.

Order is necessary, and this order comes when you have an insight, the capacity to look at disorder choicelessly.

Choiceless awareness is intelligence, and that intelligence will bring order.

Relationship means direct contact, perception, understanding, and you cannot have an understanding of another when looking with an image you have built.

A mind that suffers has no love. It is only the mind that is free from suffering that knows compassion and love.

You must understand death as you must understand living.

Are you frightened of letting go of the known?

Questions from the audience followed the talk.

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
