J. Krishnamurti & Swami Venkatesananda – Saanen 1969 – Dialogue 2 – Can one experience the infinite?
Why do we always attach ourselves to something which we suppose to be the highest?
We use the word ‘experience’ very easily. Can we experience the feeling of supreme ecstasy? Can we experience the infinite?
Can the mind which is conditioned, prejudiced and frightened experience the highest?
When fear and conditioning cease, is there experiencing of the highest at all?
If the entity which is fear and anxiety has dissolved its fear, what is there to experience?
What is the purpose of experience? Is there the need of experience at all?
Being in a state in which there is no peace, we want to experience a state of absolute, permanent, eternal peace.
If the mind can free itself from agony then what is the need to ask for an experience of the supreme?

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
