Podcast 326 – “Avoiding the Pitfall of Words”


Guest speaker: J. Krishnamurti

[NOTE: All quotations are by J. Krishnamurti.]

“The crisis is not in the outward technological advancement, but rather in the way we think, and the way we live, and the way we feel. I think that is where a revolution must take place.”

“No revolution, psychologically I’m talking about, is possible if there is merely the imitation of a particular ideology. To me, all ideologies are idiotic.”

“What has meaning is what IS, not what should be.”

“I think that is the worst thing one can do, to break up one’s own existence into various fragments, and that’s where contradiction lies.”

  1. Thanks so much for introducing me to this wonderful man. I went to his site and found many great talks. However I could never find this specific one. Nor did I see your links or embeding of it. Which specific talk is this from?

    [COMMENT by Lorenzo: This talk is “New York, September 1966 Public Talk #1 – Part 1 of 6”, which you can find at


    . . . and that is where the other five parts of this lecture may also be found. In addition you will find a LOT more of his talks there. I had to remove the embedded files because I couldn’t get “autoplay” to turn off and so they all began playing at once . . . which was a mess. . . . and, yes, I followed all of the ways possible to turn autoplay off, but none of them worked.]

  2. Thanks so much for the kind mention of my work and my exhibition in the introduction to the episode, Lorenzo. I really appreciate it, and all that you do in bringing us these inspiring talks by inspired minds.
    Keep up the great work – and thanks again.

  3. I never heard Krishnamurti speak before. What an inspiration and thanks for posting it. I am going to have to give this one a second listen. I posted a link to this episode on my blog, it deserves a wider renaissance.

  4. I first read JK when I was 20 over 30 years ago now and even though at that time I didn’t really understand what he was saying yet I felt the profundity of his words. He strips everything away leaving that which we all share.
    There are many who have followed in his footsteps but he was the pioneer.

  5. I appreciate another podcast so much! Thank you Lorenzo, my dear cyber friend and teacher:) I was well when you were away, and it makes me happy to think about you lazily reading and hanging around with your loved ones. Please don’t feel obligated to do the podcast, but know that there will always be good soil waiting for you to plant these divine seeds in it, whenever you like to.

  6. Great to see you back!

    JK’s speaking style reminds me of a cross between Alan Watts, Aldous Huxley and Deepak Chopra.

    Wonderful insights too.

    Thanks so much! 🙂
