J. Krishnamurti – Saanen 1975 – Public Discussion 2 – Thought and the centre

Q: How is the mind to see the totality of anything?

Can thought see the whole movement of existence including thought itself, what it has put together, its gods, hell, heaven and misery?

There is a centre in me and you trying to unify. Are you aware that thought has created this centre?

Thought being fragmentary cannot perceive the whole.

Is there a perception that can see the whole? To learn about this implies leisure.

To perceive there must be space. There can be space only when there is no image, symbol, word or movement of thought.

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
