Krishnamurti on Fear

‘Most of us are concerned with trimming fear, like we trim branches of a tree. And we think this is good enough, but we don’t challenge ourselves whether it is possible to be completely free of fear.’

This week’s episode on Fear has five sections. The first extract (2:24) is from Krishnamurti’s second talk in San Francisco 1983, titled ‘We are two friends discussing fear’.

The second extract (9:34) is from the fifth talk in Saanen 1981, titled ‘What is fear?’

The third extract (23:52) is from Krishnamurti’s third question and answer meeting in Ojai 1981, titled ‘Observing fear’.

The fourth extract (47:56) is from the second question and answer meeting at Brockwood Park in 1985, titled ‘Fear of change’.

The final extract (57:22) is from Krishnamurti’s sixth talk in Saanen 1981, titled ‘Fear of dying’.

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 meditation. Extracts from our archives have been carefully selected to represent Krishnamurti’s different approaches to each of these universal and timelessly relevant themes.
