Krishnamurti on Ambition

‘Ambition is the same, whether it is in the world or turned towards God.’ This week’s episode on Ambition has four sections. The first extract (2:18) is from Krishnamurti’s first talk in London 1962, titled ‘Denying ambition totally.’ The second extract (13:46) is from the sixth talk in Saanen 1981, titled ‘Where there is ambition, can love exist?’. The third extract (25:52) is from Krishnamurti’s first talk at Brockwood Park in 1973, titled ‘Ambition is a waste of energy’. The final extract (43:30) this week is from the ninth talk in Ojai 1949, titled ‘Are you free of ambition?’ Each weekly episode in this season of the Krishnamurti podcast is based on a major theme of the philosopher’s talks, such as freedom, self-knowledge, beauty, intelligence and authority. Extracts from our archives have been carefully selected to represent Krishnamurti’s different approaches to each of these universal and timelessly relevant themes.
