The Real Revolution by J. Krishnamurti (Part 1 of 2)
The National Educational Television Network produced and transmitted these eight shows in the United States. They are the first videos of Krishnamurti speaking to audiences; it was the first time he permitted filming of his presentations and discussion groups. The Oak Grove in Ojai, CA, and the Thacher School in Ojai Valley, CA, are the two key settings.
Jiddu Krishnamurti (May 12, 1895 – February 17, 1986) was a philosopher and spiritual teacher. His topics included psychological revolution, the nature of the mind, meditation, human relationships, and effecting constructive social change. Maintaining that society is ultimately the result of human interactions. He believed that profound society transformation could only occur via voluntarily undertaken extreme personal change. He consistently underlined the necessity for a revolution in every human being’s mind and emphasized that such a revolution cannot be brought about by any external force, religious, governmental, or social.
“All authority, especially control over mind and knowledge, is the most destructive, terrible thing.” Followers devour leaders, and leaders destroy followers. You must be both your own teacher and disciple. Everything that man has accepted as worthwhile or necessary must be called into question.”
