Observing ourselves   

December, 1966

  • Subtitles available: Chinese, Dutch, English, French, Greek, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Slovenian, Spanish and Vietnamese
  • Man has made himself incapable of facing what is, inwardly. Therefore he has a concept about it and acts according to that concept. Therefore the fact, the concept and action are in contradiction and there is a battle going on. The interval between the observer and the observed is time, containing numerous ideas which prevent actual observation of the fact.
  • In relationship, the observer is the image, looking at an image which has been created about the other. So the relationship between the observer and the observed is not actually relationship. When the observer has no image, then the observer is not different from observation. ‘What is’ is the observer, not ‘the observer is looking at what is’. There is no quality of choice in this.
  • These eight programmes were produced and broadcast in America by the National Educational Television Network. They represent the earliest sound films of Krishnamurti speaking to audiences – it was the first time that he had allowed his talks and discussion groups to be filmed. The principle settings are the Oak Grove in Ojai, California, and the Thacher School in the Ojai Valley.
