What will break the chain in which the brain is caught?

Seminar 1 - Madras (Chennai),India - 14 January 1981

What is the root cause of the chaos in the world?

My relationship with you is created by the image I have about you, therefore my relationship is with the image.

The brain has been accustomed to the sensory, imagery movement. What will break this chain?

How do you respond to a challenge?

Where does desire begin?

The brain is caught in the movement of time and thought.

Knowledge has created this chain. You ask, ‘How is the chain to break?’ Who is asking this question?

If all the senses respond, there is no desire.

Remaining with the stream of sorrow

Seminar 2 - Madras (Chennai),India - 15 January 1981

Can the enormous river of sorrow be ended? If it ends, what is the result on society?

Is it a fact that we are not individuals?

I am the result of thought, experience and knowledge stored up in memory. I am the result of thousands of generations.

The sorrow of the individual is a fragmentary sorrow. That which is fragmented has not the tremendous energy of the whole.

It is not only I who suffer; mankind suffers.

Am I so enclosed that I refuse to see what is happening outside of me?

Remain with something completely. If the brain remains completely with fear, it is gone.

When sorrow has completely ended then there is compassion.

Sorrow is the stream. Remain with the stream, don't be of it, or on it, under it or over it, just remain with the stream without any movement, because any movement is the cause of sorrow.

Do you ever come to a point where your brain is in a state of not knowing?

Seminar 3 - Madras (Chennai),India - 16 January 1981

What blocks us?

We are always searching, arguing and we don’t come to a point of utter emptiness, of not-knowing.

What is making us not flower? Is it thought, is it time, is it action, or have I not deeply read the book, which is myself?

Why is the brain incapable of perception of the whole, and acting from that wholeness?

If the Buddha came to you today and said, ‘Please listen,’ would you listen? If you listen, that is your transformation.

Is there a way of looking and listening which has no relationship to knowledge?

See that the brain is in a staggering state and be with it. As you are watching it, the brain quietens down. Look with that quiet brain at things, observe. That is learning. The chain is broken.
