1. Where are we going?

Film 1 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

The world is full of misery and conflict, destructive brutality, aggression. Man has mastered the external world but inwardly he is still violent, acquisitive, competitive. Society has been built along these lines. The crisis in the world is actually a crisis in consciousness. It is important to bring about a revolution in the human mind.

“What we are trying, in all these discussions and talks here, is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind. Not accept things as they are. Nor revolt against it – revolt doesn’t answer a thing! But to understand it, to go into it, to examine it; give your heart and your mind with everything that you have to find out a way of living differently.”

The real revolution Series

These eight programmes were produced and broadcast in America by the National Educational Television Network. They represent the earliest sound films of Krishnamurti speaking to audiences – it was the first time that he had allowed his talks and discussion groups to be filmed. The principle settings are the Oak Grove in Ojai, California, and the Thacher School in the Ojai Valley.

 

2. Observing ourselves

Film 2 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

Man has made himself incapable of facing what is, inwardly. Therefore he has a concept about it and acts according to that concept. Therefore the fact, the concept and action are in contradiction and there is a battle going on. The interval between the observer and the observed is time, containing numerous ideas which prevent actual observation of the fact.

In relationship, the observer is the image, looking at an image which has been created about the other. So the relationship between the observer and the observed is not actually relationship. When the observer has no image, then the observer is not different from observation. ‘What is’ is the observer, not ‘the observer is looking at what is’. There is no quality of choice in this.

3. Freedom from fear

Film 3 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

Passion is needed to understand the whole complex problem of existence. This passion cannot be supplied by the intellect or by sentiment or emotionalism, or aroused by committing oneself to a cause.

The psychological structure of society is based on pleasure. Our whole psychological existence is based in the continuation of pleasure. Until one understands the nature and the structure of pleasure, there will always be fear. The mind that is conditioned by the principle of pleasure cannot think clearly. What is pleasure?

4. Meditation

Film 4 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

Our minds deteriorate as one grows older, or even when one is young. Is it possible to end the decaying process of the brain, and likewise to keep the body alert and energetic? Can the mind rejuvenate itself?

Is one aware of the image one has created about oneself? Is the image different from the image-maker? The observer who is aware of that image feels himself to be different from it and strives to alter it. But effort, struggle on the part of the observer is one of the factors of deterioration. The observer is the image, not the factor of rejuvenation.

Meditation is freeing the mind from the known.

5. What is love?

Film 5 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

What is the state of the mind that asks a question? Who is going to answer it? How does one find out what love is? Is love pleasure? Will the conscious mind find it out? If I make a conscious effort then I must have recognition of what it is.

To enquire, one must be free of belief, and therefore of fear. To find out what love is, one must enquire into the question of pleasure and desire. Thought gives desire continuity and vitality. This must be discovered actually for oneself. Is it possible to look at something extraordinarily beautiful and merely observe, without the interference of thought?

6. Questioning

Film 6 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

Krishnamurti with students at the Thacher School

One should have a bit of skepticism when asking questions. A wrong question will have no answer, but a right question, in its very asking, unfolds the understanding of it. It needs intelligence and sensitivity to ask the right question and to see all that is involved in it and go to the very end of it.

7. Living and death

Film 7 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

To understand the problem of death, one has to be free of fear. Fear is thought in action with regard to the past, through the present and to the future. Fear is the movement of time, which is essentially the process of thinking. How one looks at fear matters immensely.

Death is the ending of all the things which have been accumulated, which is the known. Losing the known means complete loneliness.

Can one die every day to one’s experience? So that every experience is totally assimilated, understood and dissolved. This requires a great deal of energy, which is attention.

8. The end of conflict

Film 8 - Ojai, California,USA - 1 January 1966

Why are we discontented, and with what? Being discontented with what is, we develop the idea of what should be. There is conflict between what is and what should be.

The centre in consciousness, the observer, creates a space around itself which is always limited. The center is the accumulation of knowledge and experience. There is no freedom in that space.

Can the mind be intensely alert without experience? Such a mind is the religious mind.
