‘It is only out of nothingness that creation takes place; out of that emptiness is that creation that is the summation of all energy.’
This week’s episode on Nothingness has six sections.
The first extract (2:50) is from Krishnamurti’s fourth talk in London 1962, titled ‘Nothingness is not something mysterious’
The second extract (7:18) is from the fourth talk in Saanen 1978, titled ‘We are frightened to be nothing.’
The third extract (23:30) is from Krishnamurti’s fourth talk in Saanen 1975 titled, ‘In nothingness is complete security.’
The fourth extract (41:12) is from the seventh talk in Saanen 1980, titled ‘Our culture says, Be something.’
The fifth extract (54:55) is from Krishnamurti’s fourth talk in Madras 1973, titled ‘From nothingness comes the creative flowering of life.’
The final extract in this episode (1:10:19) is from the fifth talk in Bombay 1962, titled ‘In nothingness is communion’.
Season three of the Krishnamurti podcast continues with the format of extracts carefully chosen from the philosopher’s talks. Each weekly episode focuses on a theme explored by Krishnamurti and the aim is to represent his different approaches to these universal topics.
