K: The self, a series of words, a structure of ideas, prejudices, conclusions, attachments, ambition, greed, arrogance, hurts, can be ended by being free now.

K: Is there is an action which is not based on an ideal or concept?

K: How do we cooperate in solving a problem?

K: How can students understand the observer and the observed? Instead, I say let’s talk about cooperation and see if you can cooperate with affection, care and attention.

Fritjof Capra: This seems to imply your presence at the same point, at the same time and with the same frame of mind.

David Bohm: The deeper question is whether we have this causeless feeling which creates a common action.

K: Is there an action without a formula? This may be the solution to our problems. Find out; don’t oppose it.

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
