J. Krishnamurti: The Real Revolution

This 30-minute documentary is the first from an original series
of eight made for television in 1966.

They were the earliest sound-films of Krishnamurti speaking to audiences.

Jiddu Krishnamurti (Telugu: జిడ్డు కృష్ణ మూర్తి) or J. Krishnamurti (Telugu: జే . కృష్ణ మూర్తి, Tamil: கிருஷ்ணமூர்த்தி), (12 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was a writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual issues. His subject matter included psychological revolution, the nature of the mind, meditation, human relationships, and bringing about positive change in society. Maintaining that society is ultimately the product of the interactions of individuals, he held that fundamental societal change can emerge only through freely undertaken radical change in the individual. He constantly stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being and emphasized that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social.

  1. I do not understand. What is so special? These conclusions can be acknowledged trough a simple process of thought. This has become, almost become common knowledge, perhaps because of him perhaps not. I believe that knowledge stimulates better then meditation. The pursuit of knowledge creates wisdom, and wisdom in-turn  
    creates knowledge. My belief for short is that this is simply an intelligent rant with no purpose, simply an idea. So why accept what he says without first seeing what it is you already know, and as you do this you begin to realize that this is only an application of common knowledge.  That is my opinion, my intellectual rant if you prefer . I simply ask you to criticize what he says again what you believe he says and come to the conclusion that what he says, simply states what you want it to say/mean no conclusion is drawn from anything he says, he simply puts forth and eloquent series of facts that do not appertain to the actual argument.


  2. I’m a Chinese and I tend to lean on Buddhist beliefs (not the super natural part) on the way of life. This guy talks like those monks I meet… They tend to blow your mind with their philosophies

  3. Long before the movie “Beautiful Mind”…was this man: Krishnamurti
    No doubt, a man of the ages…in our age….possessing a truly “beautiful mind”.

    To listen to his words is not enough…to comprehend the message requires an abandonment of our “here and now” judgments in our day to day consciousness.

    If you have seen “Zeitgeist” you will recognize his face and message (in context) to the World we now live in.

    This 30 minutes is but a tease to a larger series of episodes previously recorded years ago…which I would very much welcome seeing the in it’s entirety- here on DH.Com

    I rate this 10 of 10 because of the rarity of this footage and the real content of it’s message.

  4. this man if fucking brilliant!

  6. If you like this man then search for a alan watts collection torrent. :V
