The Art of Listening   J. Krishnamurti Online Transcript 

Tenth Conversation with Dr Allan W. Anderson in San Diego California

Friday, February 22, 1974

  • Tenth conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson
  • Q: What is seeing, what is listening, what is learning?
  • Do we see actually or through a screen darkly through a screen of prejudice a screen of our experiences, wishes, pleasures, fears between us and the object of perception?
  • Do we ever see the thing at all?
  • Does the act of listening bring about complete freedom from all statements?
  • Is the mind completely attentive?
  • Then the mind is extraordinarily free to act. Then the seeing is doing. I learn in order to gain reward or avoid punishment. I learn a particular job or craft to earn a livelihood. Is learning a process of accumulation?
  • Is there any other kind of learning that is not accumulating and acting from that?
  • Have we learned anything from sorrow?
  • What is there to learn?
