AM81T1 - Thought and Time Are the Root of Fear
Amsterdam 1981 1st Public Talk - 19th September, 1981 89 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F P, Audio: F P Is the crisis outside or in our consciousness? Is there conflict in our relationships because there is no actual meeting psychologically? Thought, the cycle of experience, knowledge, memory, action. Thought creates the problem, then tries to solve it. When we realise we are the rest of mankind does it change our activity profoundly? The relationship of thought, desire, and will. Is the analyser different from what he analyses? Compassion is the ending of sorrow and only then is there intelligence.
AM81T2 - A Religious Mind Is a Very Factual Mind
Amsterdam 1981 2nd Public Talk - 20th September, 1981 67 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F P, Audio: F P Observing the actuality of what living is and what it means to die. What is it that continues in our daily life? Can one, while living with all the turmoil, have the energy, capacity to end attachment? The necessity of being free of all that thought has invented as religion to find out what a religious mind is. Contradiction, which is division, is disorder and order is the foundation of a religious life. Enquiring into what is meditation.
BO84T1 - A Different Quality of Life
Bombay 1984 1st Public Talk - 4th February, 1984 75 min. Colour The art of listening, observing. Are you listening to the speaker or to his reputation? Being sceptical so that your brain operates at its highest quality. What is the cause of this appalling violence - is it the conflict and competition that exists in each of us? What are problems, how do we meet them - only a free brain can solve problems. Looking at the world globally. Knowledge the enemy of love. Do you love anybody?
BO84T2 - The Endless Cycle of Action and Reaction
Bombay 1984 2nd Public Talk - 5th February, 1984 83 min. Colour The past meeting the present, a factor of conflict. Can you live not recording inwardly? What is implied in asking "how"? The possibility of a state where the brain isn't reacting. Is there an observer different from anger? Duality exists when there is comparison. Remaining with the fact, what takes place? Is time the enemy of man? To live religiously needs great intelligence.
BO84T3 - A Deep Abiding Honesty
Bombay 1984 3rd Public Talk - 11th February, 1984 82 min. Colour Conflict is the essence of disorder. What is fear and how does it arise? The past is time - is the root of fear, time-thought? What is the art of living so that one is not afraid of death? Is there an end to sorrow? Attachment one of the causes of sorrow - to whom is one attached? Order is to become aware of one's disorder. Isn't division the root of disorder? While living can one find the significance of death?
BO84T4 - The Sense of Unshakeable Freedom
Bombay 1984 4th Public Talk - 12th February, 1984 76 min. Colour Is love or freedom a matter of choice, a reaction? Freedom, goodness, love, beauty are one. The possibility of an interval between seeing, contact, sensation, before thought makes a shape of it. Conscious meditation is born of desire. Can the brain stop measuring? Beauty is where the self is not. What is religion apart from beliefs? Where there is space there is silence. When the brain is silent there is that which is nameless.
BR78T1 - Can I Strip Myself of the Network of Language?
Brockwood Park 1978 1st Public Talk - 26th August, 1978 92 min. Black&White, Translations: Video: F, Audio: D F What is right action in a world that is crumbling? Can thought find an action totally devoid of time? Insight into the movement of thought and the roots of fear. Can you have a quick perception into the whole nature and structure of authority? Using words without their emotional content. Are you caught in a network of words? Is the word creating the sensation of fear? The observer is not different from the reaction.
BR78T2 - How Is One To Have Complete Order?
Brockwood Park 1978 2nd Public Talk - 27th August, 1978 70 min. Black&White, Translations: Video: F, Audio: D F You are disorder. Why is there this huge pressure of desire in us - is it one of the factors of disorder? What is its nature, how does it arise, can it have its proper place without suppression or control? Thought interferes with sensation, desire begins. Why should the brain register an event which was painful or pleasurable? Registering only things necessary to bring order. In attention is there registration?
BR78T3 - How Is Freedom To Be Understood and Lived?
Brockwood Park 1978 3rd Public Talk - 2nd September, 1978 79 min. Black&White, Translations: Video: F, Audio: D F
There is only freedom, not its opposite. Psychologically is there an opposite at all, don't they contain each other? We always act from opposites. Is love pleasure, desire, remembrance, attachment to a person, country, idea? Is love the opposite of all this, or has it no opposite? Can one grasp the full beauty and significance of death without understanding attachment? Ending attachment. Death is the ending of the known.
BR78T4 - The Beginning of Meditation
Brockwood Park 1978 4th Public Talk - 3rd September, 1978 84 min. Black&White, Translations: Video: F, Audio: D F Do our senses ever act as a whole? The beginning of meditation. What place have time and control in meditation and can one live a life without control? Can consciousness, which is the result of time, empty itself so that time comes to an end? Can thought move away from the groove it is in? Hope is part of time. The possibility of living a life in total anonymity and humility. Is there anything sacred, untouched by thought?
BR79T1 - What Will Make Us Change?
Brockwood Park 1979 1st Public Talk - 25th August, 1979 68 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F A relationship in daily life that is essentially good. Can we bring about a radical change in ourselves? Being conditioned will I listen to another? Can I look at the fact of my conditioning? What happens if I reject all authority and organizations? Can the mind be free of the image I have created about myself and is it that image that is hurt? Analysis maintains division. What takes place when actually the observer is the observed?
BR79T2 - Is Thought the Instrument of Right Action?
Brockwood Park 1979 2nd Public Talk - 26th August, 1979 67 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Transforming the mind, not falling into other conditioning. Do we partially use the senses or can we observe with all our senses? Thought dominates sensation, desire is born. Observing without the old instrument of thought. Discipline means learning. We have made an effort to discipline, suppress, and control desire. When you understand desire is there effort? You can't love with effort.
BR79T3 - "Tomorrow" Is the Root of Fear
Brockwood Park 1979 3rd Public Talk - 1st September, 1979 69 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Is the mind unwilling to look at fear as it arises? Are you different from fear? Fear without the word. Is thought, which is time, the root of fear? Thought brings pleasure,
which is private. Pleasure may be the cause of isolation. Ending something voluntarily, that is death. In ending, is there the beginning of something new? Isn't intelligence to end? What is death? Eternal means out of time.
BR79T4 - Is There Something Enduring, Immovable?
Brockwood Park 1979 4th Public Talk - 2nd September, 1979 74 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F What is the meaning of life? To find out if there is something beyond time mustn't you be free of problems? Isn't one with problems caught in time? Problems arise when our relationships are not understood. Can the mind observe a fact without direction, and if so, hasn't that mind pulled together all its energy? Desire is in time: meditation is the ending of time and effort. Can all search come to an end?
BR80T1 - Can One Live without Fragmentation?
Brockwood Park 1980 1st Public Talk - 30th August, 1980 68 min. Black&White Man's responsibility is a global one in this mad, rather insane world. Living in images is the essence of a destructive way of life. The fragmentation brought about through attachment, ideas and images must fall away if there is to be a totally different way of living, with love and a great sense of compassion.
BR80T2 - Images and Desire in Relationship
Brockwood Park 1980 2nd Public Talk - 31st August, 1980 78 min. Black&White Desire is the movement of constantly trying to become. We are separate entities with our images, trying to be related. The brain which is the most important factor in our life needs to change completely. Insight into desire and relationship can only take place when there is observation without any direction, and this can change the very brain cells.
BR80T3 - Inner and Outer Disorder and Division
Brockwood Park 1980 3rd Public Talk - 6th September, 1980 73 min. Black&White Man has divided himself religiously and through nationalism, in which lies the root of disorder. World disorder is not different from our disorder; nor is this disorder different from the observer who is observing it. Can one deal with disorder, pleasure, fear, sorrow as a total movement of life, in a holistic way?
BR80T4 - Can a Religious Mind Come About?
Brockwood Park 1980 4th Public Talk - 7th September, 1980 86 min. Black&White The need to live a tremendously diligent life and not banish the actual demand for truth, to be free of non- facts and live with facts. Religion implies a mind that has no escapes. The struggle to become wears out the brain cells. The need for the mind to be free of hurt so that it keeps young and never grows senile. The mind is caught in time because it moves away from the fact.
BR81T1 - Thought and the Problems of Our World
Brockwood Park 1981 1st Public Talk - 29th August, 1981 70 min. Black&White We are the rest of mankind. Realizing this, what is one to do. Is there an approach uncontaminated by thought? The truth of relationship. The concept of the individual is the root of division. We have to understand deeply and eradicate that which is false, not the problems it creates - it is not important to solve problems.
BR81T2 - Looking at the Whole Content of Consciousness
Brockwood Park 1981 2nd Public Talk - 30th August, 1981 74 min. Black&White Looking directly at our relationships with each other. Observing the content of consciousness as a whole; realizing whatever we do is selfish. Thought and time are factors of pleasure and fear. Is love the awakening of the whole brain?
BR81T3 - Love and Compassion with Its Intelligence
Brockwood Park 1981 3rd Public Talk - 5th September, 1981 79 min. Black&White Knowledge brings sorrow. What relationship has sorrow to love? The remembrance of someone who is dead is an escape from actual pain. We are concerned with what happens after death rather than before. Remaining with a fact, not translating it according to your prejudices or wants. Ending all attachment, with its corruption, there can be a new beginning.
BR81T4 - The Religious Life, Beauty, and Meditation
Brockwood Park 1981 4th Public Talk - 6th September, 1981 71 min. Black&White When there is the absence of self there is beauty, not in the picture or painting. Seeing the whole of consciousness at one glance is meditation, not the effort of practising, controlling. Who is the controller and the thing controlled? The brain occupied with
knowledge and trained for a million years to measure, can it put aside all that and be fresh? Listening with a brain that is quiet, absolutely still. Religion, a way of life built on right order.
BR82T1 - What Can We Do in this World?
Brockwood Park 1982 1st Public Talk - 28th August, 1982 75 min. Black&White Not being committed to any ideology, what is one's response to what is happening in the world? Is there anything ultimate, any existence without cause - perhaps that enquiry will answer what one is to do. The analyser not separate from the analysed, the analyser is the result of the past, his memories, experiences, knowledge. Analysis, a dead process, observation is not. Having a cause in relationship brings conflict.
BR82T2 - What Has Happened to Mankind?
Brockwood Park 1982 2nd Public Talk - 29th August, 1982 74 min. Black&White Living according to ideals breeds conflict; and as long as we are thinking in terms of isolation there is conflict. Finding out the cause, the root of fear. Thought creating the image and the birth of desire. The senses heightened and fully operating together. Observation without the movement of thought or time.
BR82T3 - The Intelligence which Brings Order and Peace
Brockwood Park 1982 3rd Public Talk - 4th September, 1982 62 min. Black&White Intelligence alone can bring about complete order and peace in one's life. Where there is choice there is no freedom. Ending the vast structure of memories; memories cause pain and how can one love when caught in this vast structure? Coming close to sorrow, which means one is sorrow, one's clarity of perception will end that sorrow.
BR82T4 - The Beauty of Death as Part of Life
Brockwood Park 1982 4th Public Talk - 5th September, 1982 81 min. Black&White With no freedom from travail and agony, and the occasional sense of beauty, what is death? Ending something without a cause. If one is frightened of death, which is frightened of losing, to end that fear now - lose now. Living and dying are together. Meditation is the ending of this movement of the inner and outer, not a becoming, or a consciously willed process. Such an ending, because it has no cause, is endless.
BR83T1 - How Can the Brain Transform Itself?
Brockwood Park 1983 1st Public Talk - 27th August, 1983 68 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F The possibility of bringing about a mutation in the very brain cells themselves which have been conditioned for thousands of years. Being aware without any choice that we are conditioned; the nature of conditioning which is essentially experience and knowledge. The self, the ego, is a series of memories based on knowledge.
BR83T2 - Only in Peace Can the Human Mind Be Free
Brockwood Park 1983 2nd Public Talk - 28th August, 1983 75 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F Man, who has learned so much, cannot live in peace. Conflict as long as there is separation, and the individual may be one of the causes why man does not live in peace. Even in close relationships where there is a sense of affection, there is conflict, the whole field of turmoil: observing this relationship without remembrances. Looking at life, not as a problem, though problems exist, but having a mind that is free of problems.
BR83T3 - Freedom from the Self
Brockwood Park 1983 3rd Public Talk - 3rd September, 1983 70 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F The movement from "what is" to "what should be"; the psychological process of time, one of the causes of fear. Time-thought (not two separate things) the cause of fear. The ending of "me" with all its memories, not only of my sorrow but mankind's sorrow - sorrow is part of this continuity of memory. While living, without any cause or future, to end something. If you go beyond time is there anything to experience?
BR83T4 - What Kind of Brain Is Needed for Meditation?
Brockwood Park 1983 4th Public Talk - 4th September, 1983 69 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F The origin of all existence. The quality of brain needed to uncover the origin, a brain where there is no self-interest. Meditation and order, a feeling of complete wholeness and unity of life. The brain conditioned by language. Is there something, because it is not manifested, that has no beginning and no end?
BR84T1 - The Cause of Conflict in Relationship
Brockwood Park 1984 1st Public Talk - 25th August, 1984 83 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D E F J K Ru, Audio: D E F J K Ru Insight into the causation of conflict. The division between what I am and what I
should be creates conflict. Thought creates conflict. What is the enormous energy of thought - do you try to find out what is thinking, or do you listen to the question? Thought cannot provide security; inwardly is there security at all?
BR84T2 - Looking at Fear, that Extraordinary Jewel
Brockwood Park 1984 2nd Public Talk - 26th August, 1984 72 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F J K Ru, Audio: E F J K Ru No tomorrow because tomorrow is now. If all time is contained in the "now", what is our relationship to each other and what is action? No security in time; the movement of thought, time, causes fear. Who is the entity that stops thought - is it another thought?
BR84T3 - Is It Possible To End All Sorrow?
Brockwood Park 1984 3rd Public Talk - 1st September, 1984 75 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F J K Ru, Audio: E F J K Ru Freedom per se. "Morality" means behaviour according to a culture, but is there a morality that is not time-binding? The desire to be helped is one of the causes of suffering. If there is no ending of attachment instantly we will still be attached tomorrow and therefore still suffering. If one is free from sorrow completely, what is the effect of that on the world? No compassion if one is anchored in a particular sect or belief.
BR84T4 - The Nature, Depth and Beauty of Death
Brockwood Park 1984 4th Public Talk - 2nd September, 1984 72 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F J K Ru, Audio: E F J K Ru Beauty is truth, like love is truth, and beauty is when the observer is not. Death means you hold on to nothing; living with death and not keeping the two apart. Living in this world daily with total freedom from all knowledge except where knowledge is necessary. Religion, a quality of the mind that sets aside all man's endeavour. Meditation is freedom from the network of thought.
BR85T1 - Why Do We Have So Many Problems?
Brockwood Park 1985 1st Public Talk - 24th August, 1985 73 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F P Approaching a problem, a challenge. Can the brain, educated to live with problems, have no problems at all, and therefore tackle them? Can the brain become aware of itself, its thoughts, reactions, its way of living? Can it be free of self-interest which is the beginning of corruption and the origin of conflict? The question, not the answer, has tremendous significance. Can one remain quiet and watch? Are observation and
BR85T2 - The Relationship of Time and Thought to Fear
Brockwood Park 1985 2nd Public Talk - 25th August, 1985 82 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F P What is the nature of beauty and its relationship to thought, time, and love? Can memory apprehend that which is beautiful? Time is the movement of memory, knowledge, experience. Can this movement end? Thought and time are the root of fear. Can thinking in the deepest valleys of the brain ever stop? Is relationship, the closeness, the feeling for each other, based on thought? Is it possible to end fear now, so completely, that you are free?
BR85T3 - The Relationship of Freedom to Self-interest
Brockwood Park 1985 3rd Public Talk - 31st August, 1985 63 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F P Do we realize how little freedom we have? Are pleasure, fear, self- interest, time, thought, all one movement? If we understand that all time is now, then is change meaningless? Why has man always suffered? Is there an end to sorrow? When there is an ending of sorrow there is love. Where there is love there is absolute freedom. Can we live our daily life with that perfume?
BR85T4 - The Nature of the Brain that Lives Religiously
Brockwood Park 1985 4th Public Talk - 1st September, 1985 72 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F P Do we realize that we are the world and the world is us? Enquiring together into why we want continuity. If we realize the immense significance of living with that ending that is called death in our daily life, there is real transformation, real mutation, even in the brain cells. Can the brain be quiet, can it ever understand that which is limitless? Is there a mind, which is not the brain, to understand that immensity?
LO82T2 - Order in Consciousness
London 1982 2nd Public Talk - 6th June, 1982 63 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F Is one aware of the whole root of fear? What is the difference between the thought that has created the pleasure of love, and love? Can there be love where there is suffering? The disorder of consciousness, inwardly or outwardly, is the pursuit of an ideal. Why are we frightened if things end? What has practice to do with meditation? Only in absolute silence can the mind come upon that which is sacred.
MA7879T1 - Organizations Have Not Saved Man
Madras 1978 1st Public Talk - 31st December, 1978 85 min. Black&White Outer and inner fragmentation. Who is going to change man? Have organizations of any kind helped? One must begin very near to go very far. To bring a change in the world, you must change. Is one aware of one's thoughts, feelings, fears, pleasures? Listening without the interference of thought. Can you observe without any prejudice? A brain not burdened by knowledge. What is action in your life? Can the brain only register what is necessary?
MA7879T2 - An Action that Is Not the Outcome of Thought
Madras 1979 2nd Public Talk - 1st January, 1979 72 min. Black&White Is there an action which is not fragmentary, which has no regrets, no sense of incompleteness? Is all psychological security an illusion? Can one attend without concentration, effort? The very thought which concentrates also distracts. To attend implies there is no centre from which you are listening. When you have an insight into it, thought finds its right place.
MA7879T3 - Is Freedom a Matter of Time?
Madras 1979 3rd Public Talk - 6th January, 1979 84 min. Black&White Is there psychological time at all? Then how do we deal with a problem? Observing without time. Is time involved in love? Can we change fundamentally, radically, not through evolution, time? Can hurt be abandoned instantly? The possibility of a perception which ends the image without allowing time. What takes place when you observe the fact and do not invent the opposite? As long as there is a centre there must be problems.
MA7879T4 - What Brings About Disorder in Relationship?
Madras 1979 4th Public Talk - 7th January, 1979 89 min. Black&White Our relationship with each other, is there order in it and how will you bring order there? Is desire a factor of disorder? When pain is over can one totally forget it, nonregister it? When there is no relationship isn't there fear? Are you aware at the moment of fear, not to let thought come into it? Why has there been so little beauty and communication with nature in our lives? Registration of pleasure only after thought takes over.
MA7879T5 - What Is a Religious Mind?
Madras 1979 5th Public Talk - 13th January, 1979 89 min. Black&White Have the gods been created from our sorrow, fear? Investigation implies you must be free to look. Freedom is observation without conclusion. Can you observe the whole nature of sorrow without a motive: is it different from you? Revolution in the psychological structure of man. A religious mind has no philosophy because it is with that which is eternally sacred. The ending of sorrow to understand the religious mind.
MA7879T6 - The Movement of Meditation
Madras 1979 6th Public Talk - 14th January, 1979 88 min. Black&White If there is continuity there is nothing new. Death implies an ending to the continuity of life. If attachment, which implies continuity, does not end, what happens to the whole movement of consciousness of man? Is love within it, and has love a continuity? When there is complete order in one's life that can look at cosmic order. Attention, inattention and distraction. Does attention have continuity? In silence comes that which is eternally sacred.
MA8081T1 - The Causes of Human Conditioning
Madras 1980 1st Public Talk - 27th December, 1980 68 min. Black&White Finding the cause of corruption, deterioration, you have to act. Why don't we have the blessedness of love? Is it to be cultivated? Is one of the causes of corruption our sense of individuality? Are you a total, integrated human being, undivided, indivisible, not broken up? Isn't understanding the cause of action? Where there is attachment there must be corruption. When you live with the fact that you do not love there is passion to change what is not true.
MA8081T2 - The Clear Mind Does Not Choose
Madras 1980 2nd Public Talk - 28th December, 1980 73 min. Black&White Our relationship is based on knowledge. Is it born out of love or is it a social contract? Is there action not based on knowledge? Seeing the danger of what you call your present relationship. Psychologically, inwardly, is knowledge necessary? The difference between the computer and the human brain. Can you observe without thought interfering? Can that intelligence operate in your daily relationship?
MA8081T3 - Salvaging the Brain
Madras 1981 3rd Public Talk - 3rd January, 1981 72 min. Black&White Is there an action not from experience? Only the mind that is confused chooses. Fragmentation is the essence of corruption. Have you seen the danger, as clearly as you see that of a tiger or a cobra, of this movement of thought? The division between the psyche and thought. Are we programmed to think we are individuals? Is there a movement which ends the programming? Critical scepticism is the essence of religion.
MA8081T4 - Order That Is Not Put Together by Thought
Madras 1981 4th Public Talk - 4th January, 1981 78 min. Black&White Our consciousness itself is in disorder and thought is responsible for it. What is the relationship of thought to our daily life? Why don't we see that thought creates disorder? Is living in disorder the greatest danger? As you listen is there order now in your life? Can there be order without thought? How is one to end this movement of creating images all the time? A learning through instant perception and action.
MA8081T5 - Is Thought the Cause of the Decay of Man?
Madras 1981 5th Public Talk - 10th January, 1981 76 min. Black&White If the computer takes over, will we pursue pleasure endlessly or go inward? Is the brain losing its sensitivity? Knowledge may be the cause of our disorder. Is there a learning without time? The art of listening to oneself. Can one see without the word interfering and observe without accumulating knowledge? When you try to change "what is" aren't you caught in time? Does actual fear have any time or does thought introduce it?
MA8081T6 - Watching without Recording
Madras 1981 6th Public Talk - 11th January, 1981 80 min. Black&White Is freedom associated with a restriction, a bondage, a concept, suffering? Can there be freedom within the field of the known? Absolute freedom is unrelated to freedom from something. What is right action in all circumstances? To see danger and act instantly is intelligence. Can thought end, or not record, the hurts? Without ending sorrow there cannot be love. The beauty and the immense possibility of meditation.
MA8283T1 - What Instrument Will Solve Human Problems?
Madras 1982 1st Public Talk - 25th December, 1982 66 min. Black&White
How can you investigate into yourself, your consciousness? If thought is not the instrument to solve human problems, what is? The need for a free mind to examine anything. Hasn't each one of us contributed to the chaos in our daily life and in the world? Thought has created conflict. Is there outward order without inward order? Thought born of knowledge is limited. Can the brain have extraordinary capacity outwardly and inwardly?
MA8283T3 - Psychological Time Is the Cause of Conflict
Madras 1983 3rd Public Talk - 1st January, 1983 81 min. Black&White Is there a stop to time? Is there psychological time at all? Does a radical change, enlightenment, demand time? The division, as "me" becoming something, is that very division the process of time? How do you look at violence or greed? Can you look without the word? Religions have said to suppress desire. Can there be an interval between sensation and thought creating an image of it? Are time and thought the root of fear? Can sorrow ever end?
MA8283T4 - Remaining With the Challenge of Sorrow
Madras 1983 4th Public Talk - 2nd January, 1983 86 min. Black&White Can sorrow be approached holistically? The intellect distorts if it dominates. Love, compassion and intelligence go together. Desire is a wandering movement. Is love wandering or is it strong, vital as death? Can you be free of attachment, not just at the last moment when death is there? What is death and who is it that dies? In meditation there is no effort or system. It is an awareness in daily life, living a diligent life.
MA8485T2 - Can Thought Give Human Beings Security?
Madras 1985 2nd Public Talk - 4th January, 1985 88 min. Colour Thought has built self-interest, division, conflict, duality. What is the origin of thinking? Can one live a life without a single problem? Can a conditioned brain solve problems? Is there duality or only facts? Dealing with the fact of what I am, not what I should be. Thought and time the causation of fear. Is it possible to stop thought and time? Passionate attention.
MA8485T3 - The Shallowness of a Life without Passion
Madras 1985 3rd Public Talk - 5th January, 1985 86 min. Colour Can the brain be free of conflict, rational, sane? Without self- interest can one live in
the world? To enquire into beauty mustn't one understand why human beings are absorbed by a thing? Can you be free of the self without being absorbed? When all the senses are at their highest excellency, the self is not. Can sorrow in the world end? If I end my sorrow what effect has it on the rest of the world? Will the world change because I have changed? What is passion?
MA8485T4 - Death Is Not at the Far End of Life
Madras 1985 4th Public Talk - 6th January, 1985 86 min. Colour Death, love, religion, meditation. What is it that lives if I die? At death will my consciousness die or continue? Ending something voluntarily. Can you live with death while living, ending your experiences every day? Are we wasting our life? Meditation is not something you practise. Will you end all your memories, pleasures, desires to find out what love is? Will the accumulation of psychological knowledge bring about that great state of sacredness?
MA8586T1 - The Action with No Past or Future?
Madras 1985 1st Public Talk - 28th December, 1985 71 min. Colour Having lived on earth for millennia why are we as we are? What is the future of all of us? Realizing we are the rest of mankind, what is one to do living in this corrupt society? Will whatever I do affect society? Am I different from society? Is there an action without motive, self-interest, or seeking gain, that is not dependent on the past or a pattern of the future?
MA8586T2 - Fear Destroys Love
Madras 1986 2nd Public Talk - 1st January, 1986 70 min. Colour To enquire into love we must ask what is energy, what is its origin, how has it begun, who created it? Energy which is not in the field of thought. Can love exist where there is fear? What place in my life has death, suffering, pain, anxiety, loneliness? Experience, knowledge, thought, are limited. Don't we live by thought? Consciousness is made up of its content. Are we individuals at all? Is death the ending of all attachment?
MA8586T3 - What Is Creation, the Origin, the Beginning?
Madras 1986 3rd Public Talk - 4th January, 1986 62 min. Colour What is life, the origin of all this, the rivers, the valleys, the glory of the land? Hasn't
man always sought something through religion? Is the brain different from the mind; can the brain communicate with the mind? What is creation and what is invention? What gives life to a blade of grass? Is there meditation without effort, with no routine, measurement, or comparison? Is there a brain that is not muddled up by environment, tradition, society?
OJ72T1 - What Will Bring Humanity Together?
Ojai 1972 1st Public Talk - 8th April, 1972 76 min. Colour Thinking has produced the extraordinary world of technology. Also it is responsible for the division of man. Observing through the image that one has built up, one never observes actually "what is", only with eyes of "what should be". Without radical change in oneself as a human being, whatever you do outwardly will be conditioned by your inward state. The "me" operating in the field of knowledge creates mischief can that "me" come to an end? Edited version on video only 54 minutes.
OJ72T2 - Order Has Its Own Law
Ojai 1972 2nd Public Talk - 9th April, 1972 75 min. Colour Sanity is disorder and comes about naturally if we understand disorder. How can one bring about a radical revolution in the whole consciousness? Trying to bring order in consciousness, but order can only exist at a different dimension. How is the disorderly mind to come upon something totally different, at a different dimension? Is there something not put together by thought, which is not measurable? Edited version on video only 62 minutes.
OJ80T1 - The Vitality of the Free Mind
Ojai 1980 1st Public Talk - 3rd May, 1980 62 min. Colour Observing the crisis in consciousness without prejudice and coming together to resolve it. Is the crisis an actuality, or an idea? Observing the activity of your brain has an extraordinary vitality. Has the enormous capacity of the brain been narrowed down to the "me"? Having evolved through time does it resist change? Is the activity of the brain broken when you face a crisis?
OJ80T2 - The Fear of Being Nothing
Ojai 1980 2nd Public Talk - 4th May, 1980 74 min. Colour Approaching the problem of conflict together - are you aware of it without choice?
You, not conflict, are the problem. Can one be free of the image one has built about oneself? The possibility of being free of psychological knowledge and not identifying technological knowledge psychologically. What place has thought which has made this world what it is - immoral, ugly, brutal?
OJ80T3 - You Are Violence
Ojai 1980 3rd Public Talk - 10th May, 1980 60 min. Colour Why has thought invented marvellous things and also created wars, destroyed human beings, made god and the image of god? The possibility of observing the fact without an ideal of it. Is the fact of being violent different from me, my nature, my way of looking? Can fear be ended immediately? To meditate is to observe yourself for you are totally responsible for your body, mind, thought.
OJ80T4 - Security in Illusion
Ojai 1980 4th Public Talk - 11th May, 1980 69 min. Colour Observing the movement of desire, how it comes into being, and why it plays such an extraordinary part in our life. Sensation, then thought creates the image, desire is born - can thought not create images at all? Is it an action of will to end attachment or you have an insight and it ends - and what happens when you end something? All our cunning and experience has not resolved fear completely. Isn't fear the cause of the "me"?
OJ80T5 - Attention Has No Centre
Ojai 1980 5th Public Talk - 17th May, 1980 72 min. Colour Is fear the very structure of the mind or has thought put fear there? The possibility of thought, which transforms sensation into pleasure, not recording. Is suffering to end by an act of will? To change society don't we have to change ourselves? Mutation takes place in the psyche when we observe what we are, not what we have been or what we should be. Ending belief, pleasure, desire effortlessly, can we come upon that strange flower called love?
OJ80T6 - The Energy in Emptiness
Ojai 1980 6th Public Talk - 18th May, 1980 83 min. Colour Is there an action which is not born out of time and knowledge? The possibility of dying to all psychological knowledge and in living being free of attachment, which is
death. Can a mind desiring to create illusions go further? The word "know" is very limited. Real yoga and the meaning of mantra.
OJ81T1 - What Is the Root of This Crisis in Mankind?
Ojai 1981 1st Public Talk - 2nd May, 1981 75 min. Colour Understanding the crisis by enquiring into the nature of thought. Can knowledge, thought, ever be complete and whatever it does won't it bring disharmony? Is there a totally different kind of instrument that is not fragmentary, that is whole? Aren't we the result of a million years of common experience, knowledge, belief - are we individuals at all? Consciousness is what you think, your desires, longings - isn't the crisis in your consciousness?
OJ81T2 - Life Is a Movement of Relationship
Ojai 1981 2nd Public Talk - 3rd May, 1981 61 min. Colour The outward world is the result of what is happening inwardly. The crisis of consciousness is in the very nature of thought. Seeking security inwardly the brain atrophies - can it be free from problems yet resolve them? Is there anything to learn or only to observe? Experience, knowledge, memory, thought and action - the chain we live in. Life a movement of relationship and we have destroyed it by thought.
OJ81T3 - Can Thought Bring About Right Action?
Ojai 1981 3rd Public Talk - 9th May, 1981 60 min. Colour What is right, accurate, precise action that does not bring about conflict, that is right under all circumstances? A crisis in our consciousness because we look at the world from a limited point of view. Is thought sacred? To find what is sacred there must be meditation, which without understanding the world and ourselves is meaningless. To observe the totality of consciousness is to have an insight into action.
OJ81T4 - Do We Have the Patience To Listen to Ourselves?
Ojai 1981 4th Public Talk - 10th May, 1981 59 min. Colour Who is the analyser who traces the origin of disorder? Order comes with understanding disorder. With observation of our thoughts and reactions comes discipline which constantly learns anew. Patience is timeless, impatience full of time. Desire born from seeing, contact, sensation, then thought creates the image - can the brain stop at sensation? Are desire and time factors of disorder? Doesn't order begin at
OJ81T5 - Remaining with Sorrow
Ojai 1981 5th Public Talk - 16th May, 1981 56 min. Colour The beginning of fear, meeting it and the possibility of being free of it at the conscious as well as at the deeper layers. Thought and attachment factors of fear. When there is actual pleasure is one conscious that it is pleasurable? Is it that you are sorrowful or your whole being is in sorrow? Can one remain immovably with sorrow? The brain, when it faces a fact silently, ends it.
OJ81T6 - In Ending, Which Is Death, Is Great Beauty
Ojai 1981 6th Public Talk - 17th May, 1981 89 min. Colour Can man ever end suffering? Has love become merely excitement and pleasure? When there is an ending of sorrow there is love. If your life is not in total order how can you know what love, compassion is? Is there anything sacred, timeless, not bound by thought, beyond all corruption? In ending is a great depth of silence in which is the eternally sacred.
OJ82T1 - Are We Concerned with Total Human Existence?
Ojai 1982 1st Public Talk - 1st May, 1982 76 min. Colour Observing together what man has become. Is the crisis outside or in us? Isn't the external world a result of our psychological world? Is your consciousness yours or common to all mankind? How shall we know the intricacies and contradictions, the whole movement of consciousness? An action which comes out of holistic observation of life. Where there is attention there is no centre.
OJ82T2 - What Is the Place of Knowledge in Our Lives?
Ojai 1982 2nd Public Talk - 2nd May, 1982 75 min. Colour Why has knowledge not protected us from sorrow? Approaching the problem without direction, motive. What place has knowledge in the mutation or in the ending of conditioning? The possibility of the content of consciousness ending. Have we been educated to think that we are separate individuals? Life is a movement in relationship. When you discover something for yourself psychologically you have immense energy.
OJ82T3 - Can Our Minds Being in Disorder Create Order?
Ojai 1982 3rd Public Talk - 8th May, 1982 79 min. Colour Are we aware of the psychological movements that are born out of disorder? Is the structure of thought itself disorder? Are becoming, time, thought, comparison factors of fear? No division between observer and fear. Is accumulation of psychological knowledge and thinking from that knowledge necessary? Is it possible not to record psychologically?
OJ82T4 - Can the Mind Be Free from Error?
Ojai 1982 4th Public Talk - 9th May, 1982 64 min. Colour Is the analyser different from the analysed and doesn't the very division create conflict? Does pleasure exist now or only later, in memory? The consequences of attachment. When you are whole you are completely safe. Does conflict deny the sense of being whole? Truth the denial of all that is false - to deny all illusion is to live in reality. Where there is love and beauty life is an extraordinary movement.
OJ82T5 - Who Is the "I" That Says "I Suffer"?
Ojai 1982 5th Public Talk - 15th May, 1982 71 min. Colour Why is there no end to individualistic, competitive drive that is destroying the world? Has love continuity in pleasure and desire? The search for security and fulfilment in relationship, is that love, and can it end? Can we end all that prevents change? Is the "I" something permanent? The possibility of being with death all the time, and while living end everything day by day.
OJ82T6 - Are We Serious Enough To Resolve Our Problems?
Ojai 1982 6th Public Talk - 16th May, 1982 75 min. Colour What is thought - is it love, is it sacred? What is its origin? Is it a material process, born out of memory? The possibility of being free of psychological conditioning, which is the nature of the self, which is thought. Is there anything sacred in life so immense that thought cannot come to it? Meditation is the freedom from the known, in it there is absolute silence.
OJ83T1 - You Are a Bundle of Memories
Ojai 1983 1st Public Talk - 14th May, 1983 80 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E, Audio: E
The whole world is fragmented, broken up into nationalistic divisions. You are thought, aren't you? Can that thought be aware of itself? What is one to do with thought that has brought about this disorder and who is to put order in the world? Living without conflict in relationship. Is accumulated knowledge of each other love? What is the relationship between an intelligent man and a stupid man?
OJ83T2 - Why Have Human Beings Become Like This?
Ojai 1983 2nd Public Talk - 15th May, 1983 89 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E, Audio: E Is it possible to have peace on earth or is man condemned to live in conflict forever? Can violence, envy, greed, fear end? The observer is not separate from violence. Understanding the nature of fear because out of it we have created gods. Thought and time are the root of fear. Is there a security which is not of time, which is not put together by desire? What happens to the brain conditioned to be attached when it discovers there is no security in all this?
OJ83T3 - Ending without Any Motive
Ojai 1983 3rd Public Talk - 21st May, 1983 90 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E, Audio: E Sensation, then thought creates the image, desire is born. Understanding desire is intelligence which is discipline. Isn't the psyche the recording of incidents - why should it record at all? Can there ever be an end to human misery; if I suffer, how can I love? Chattering about silence and beauty you fail to understand both. Unless the complexity of the "me" is understood is our attitude to death intelligent?
OJ83T4 - To Watch without Any Movement of Thought
Ojai 1983 4th Public Talk - 22nd May, 1983 71 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E, Audio: E Why do we compare psychologically and can we live without comparison? The controller who controls thought, is he not part of thought? Only in compassion is there justice, equality, not in law. Can the brain cells themselves be transformed? To meditate must not psychological comparison end? Meditation is necessary to come upon what is sacred. To observe you must have space and silence.
OJ84T1 - Truth Is the Catalyst To End Conflict
Ojai 1984 1st Public Talk - 19th May, 1984 83 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F Ru, Audio: F Ru Does one approach a problem freely or with a solution that one would like? Knowledge and thought being limited must bring about conflict - has thought any
place in relationship? The possibility of going beyond the word, the description. Love and simplicity are the essence of austerity - can there be austerity without inward clarity? Do we ever end anything or merely begin again in a different form?
OJ84T2 - What Is Wrong with Pleasure?
Ojai 1984 2nd Public Talk - 20th May, 1984 70 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F Ru, Audio: F Ru Two friends talking over their problems. Can one live so that there is constant learning? What is there to learn except technologically? Order only when the static movement of memory ceases. Why has one sought pleasure and what is wrong with it? Can fear ever end - is your brain passionate enough to find out? Computers may bring about a withering state of the brain. How can I stop the movement of thought - is that a right question?
OJ84T3 - Attention Is Like a Fire
Ojai 1984 3rd Public Talk - 26th May, 1984 81 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F Ru, Audio: F Ru Since all time is in the "now", what is action? What is action in relation to becoming? When the brain is clear is there any choice? Time is now, so death is now. Apart from the physical body what are you? The need for total psychological change now or tomorrow will be the same as today. When time interferes, action breeds complication. Dealing with facts, not ideas. Attention is the flame in which sorrow ends.
OJ84T4 - Is Love Part of Consciousness?
Ojai 1984 4th Public Talk - 27th May, 1984 81 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F Ru, Audio: F Ru Freedom from and being free are two different things. Thought can never be free. Is thought driven by desire? Looking at something with all your senses fully alive, alert. When there is total attention is there a self? Can sensation and thought be kept apart? To understand the depth, the flame of love, can jealousy, ambition, aggression, violence end, not tomorrow but now? Meditation is to be totally free.
OJ85T1 - Why Is Our House in Disorder?
Ojai 1985 1st Public Talk - 11th May, 1985 90 min. Colour Is order brought about by ideologies or are they the cause of disorder? We accept division and therefore conflict, which breeds disorder. If we had complete order in ourselves would we kill another? Is each one so self-centred that that very concern divides? Can one observe oneself without choice - is there choice when there is
clarity? Can one live without a single ideal or authority so that one lives in order now not tomorrow?
OJ85T2 - A Crisis in Our Consciousness
Ojai 1985 2nd Public Talk - 12th May, 1985 77 min. Colour Why do we have a sense of guilt, inadequacy, and what is its relationship to fear? Thought and time the root of fear. Can the process which causes fear end? What is the relationship of sensation to desire? Can there be an interval between sensation and thought, sensation and the movement of desire? To watch every thought, not to let it go by without understanding why it arose, its cause. Is there something thought has not touched, the limitless, the nameless?
OJ85T3 - Creation Is Never-ending
Ojai 1985 3rd Public Talk - 18th May, 1985 78 min. Colour Is beauty a sensation? Beauty can only exist when the self is not. What is the root of fear? The possibility of a holistic activity of all the senses. An end to sorrow rather than what happens after sorrow. Can there be love with sorrow? Is love pleasure, desire, thought, something you hold, possess, worship? Through negation of what is not love, you come to that which is love. Death may be the meaning of creation.
OJ85T4 - The Ending of Continuity
Ojai 1985 4th Public Talk - 19th May, 1985 93 min. Colour Can there be complete, unbroken freedom? What is it to have a religious brain and can it free itself of its conditioning? Doesn't thought create the thinker - who controls thought? Nationalities one of the causes of disorder. Ending the continuity which you cling to. What is death and what continues? Isn't death the ending of accumulated memories - can psychological memories end without effort? A meditation which is not deliberate?
RA85T1 - Whatever You Think, You Are
Rajghat 1985 1st Public Talk - 18th November, 1985 78 min. Colour, Translations: Video: P, Audio: P Self-interest is the dominant note in our life. Where are we after two million years? Is there a different approach to daily living that does not require thinking? Experience, knowledge, memory, and therefore thought, are limited. Is there an action that is free of limitation? What is experience, registered as knowledge? Why should I have
knowledge about myself? Aren't you what you think you are?
RA85T2 - What Are You?
Rajghat 1985 2nd Public Talk - 19th November, 1985 77 min. Colour, Translations: Video: P, Audio: P Seeing the tenderness of a leaf or the generosity of human beings, what is this quality of beauty? Without being absorbed by something greater can one be free of oneself? We live by sensations. When there is an interval between sensation and thought you will understand desire. If there is no mutation now, tomorrow will be a repetition of today. Time is a factor of fear which can be ended if you put your heart and brain into it.
RA85T3 - What Is Goodness?
Rajghat 1985 3rd Public Talk - 22nd November, 1985 86 min. Colour Do we need to record everything or only that which is necessary? Learning is to not record. Why do we make such an effort in life? Can the sorrow of man ever end? Are we individuals at all? What is your relationship if you are the rest of mankind? Can we invite death now, while living? Meditation with no meditator. What is meditation and what is silence? You can't be silent in a tiny space.

Saanen 1979 1st Public Talk - 8th July, 1979 64 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Thinking together, not about something.

Where does thinking together lead in relationship?
SA79T2 - Can We Together Create a Good Society?
Saanen 1979 2nd Public Talk - 10th July, 1979 67 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F If there is no psychological time, what then is the relationship between people - do you say, 'I will love you tomorrow'? A good society can only come into being when we think together and are responsible for another.
SA79T3 - Is There Security at All Psychologically?
Saanen 1979 3rd Public Talk - 12th July, 1979
61 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Seeking security in belief, ideals, illusions, experience. The possibility of listening so completely that you see the absurdity of living in illusion and thereby ending it. Staying with the fact and not living with non-fact. The relationship of the one who has no image to the mind which is still seeking security. There is complete security in thinking together.
SA79T4 - Can Goodness, Love, Truth Be Born of Discipline?
Saanen 1979 4th Public Talk - 15th July, 1979 65 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Struggle exists where there is division. Division exists between two people each with their own ambitions, fulfilments, desires, and therefore conflict. Thought has created the division between the "me" and the "not me". Observing this division without the old instrument of thought.
SA79T5 - Are Desire and Time Responsible for Fear?
Saanen 1979 5th Public Talk - 17th July, 1979 66 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F The need to find a different way of living. Fear of letting go the old instrument of thought.

SA79T6 - Intelligence, Love, and Compassion
Saanen 1979 6th Public Talk - 19th July, 1979 63 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F The possibility of one insight that will bring a total revolution in each of us, that frees man completely from the psychological structure. Ignorance and knowledge always go together; knowledge can never be whole. Intelligence is free from ignorance, not the result of knowledge; with that intelligence goes love. Love is the solution to all our problems.
SA79T7 - In Total Silence the Mind Comes upon the Eternal
Saanen 1979 7th Public Talk - 22nd July, 1979 70 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F There is constant strife and seeking - is it seeking for a superficial sensory experience, or for something that is timeless, that thought has not touched? Observing without the response of the past. When there is observation, does the thing observed undergo a
change? The possibility of a way of living without control - is not the controller the movement of thought? When there is no conflict what takes place in the mind?
SA80T1 - Why Is There Such Chaos in the World?
Saanen 1980 1st Public Talk - 6th July, 1980 74 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Thought and the demand for personal security are the cause of the chaos, confusion and misery in the world. What has gone wrong with the brain, is it the result of time? Thought, the cause of this spreading complex cruelty of man, his behaviour and his vanity. Meditation comes naturally, uninvited when you have finished with all causes.
SA80T2 - The Movement of Thought and Becoming
Saanen 1980 2nd Public Talk - 8th July, 1980 83 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F In analysing the thing called anxiety, how does one know it is anxiety, and is the analyser different from the analysed? The very movement of thought has brought about the present chaos in the world. Thought has built the psychological structure, based on being something other than what it is. Thought has built a structure of becoming in which there is competition, ruthlessness, violence-is it possible to live without any movement of becoming?
SA80T3 - Action That Is Always Correct
Saanen 1980 3rd Public Talk - 10th July, 1980 66 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Being tied to a belief any action will be according to that belief and therefore limited and corrupt. Observing attachment and its consequences, allowing the fact to unfold itself. Ending attachment, then there is correct action, an action not based on values. Can one have a perception, without analysis, a seeing of the consequences and the cause of this attachment, instantly, immediately?
SA80T4 - Breaking the Pattern of Conditioning
Saanen 1980 4th Public Talk - 13th July, 1980 81 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F The brain with its immense capacity has not solved its own problems. As long as you are committed to something, there must be corruption. The possibility of breaking down this pattern of disorder, the conflict between "what is" and "what should be". There is only the fact, not its opposite. If there were no opposite there would be no violence. Observing without the translator, the thinker, who remembers.
SA80T5 - The Relationship of Desire, Will, and Love
Saanen 1980 5th Public Talk - 15th July, 1980 84 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F The relationship of desire, pleasure, will, and love. Pleasure is pursued where there is desire with its image, and conflict begins. The movement of thought and time brings fear; moving away from "what is", is time. Is there an action which is complete, without regret, without looking back or forward, without any strain?
SA80T6 - The Ending of Sorrow Brings Love and Compassion
Saanen 1980 6th Public Talk - 17th July, 1980 81 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Does listening with complete attention break down the pattern of the brain? Suffering is common to all mankind, man has lived with sorrow and fear outwardly and inwardly, never free. Sorrow, the concentration of man's isolating activities in life, can this isolating process end - not at the moment of death - but the cause of the isolating movement? Ending of sorrow is the beginning of wisdom and therefore intelligence.

Saanen 1980 7th Public Talk - 20th July, 1980 83 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Human beings, since time beyond measure, have lived according to symbols, images and concepts.

SA81T1 - What Is the Nature of Our Consciousness?
Saanen 1981 1st Public Talk - 12th July, 1981 79 min. Black&White Thought, which is common to all mankind, responsible for the content of consciousness. Robots and computers creating a turning point for man as a social entity; how will man, who is the rest of mankind, face this crisis? Examining the whole of thought because it is responsible for the deeper as well as the superficial layers of consciousness. Thought is limited, being a reaction of memory, so its action is limited - don't ask, 'How am I to stop thought?'
SA81T2 - Learning That Transforms Consciousness
Saanen 1981 2nd Public Talk - 14th July, 1981 73 min. Black&White
Man has been programmed to believe his consciousness is individual. Something totally different may happen if he is not individual. A different kind of nonaccumulative action, another form of learning. Group consciousness, nationalistic, linguistic, professional and racial, fear, anxiety, loneliness, pleasure, sorrow, love - if you keep acting in that circle you maintain the human consciousness of the world.
SA81T3 - The Ending of Conflict
Saanen 1981 3rd Public Talk - 16th July, 1981 63 min. Black&White Better organizations and institutions have not solved human conflict which has many factors - can the analytical mind end conflict? A perception born out of knowledge, which sees the whole nature and structure of conflict - is that very perception the ending of it? Once you see time is not a factor you begin to see cracks in the enclosure of the brain. Looking at another and ourselves without naming, time or remembrance.
SA81T4 - Living without Images
Saanen 1981 4th Public Talk - 19th July, 1981 79 min. Black&White Possibility of living without the image which divides people. Constant recording of every reaction begins to wither away the brain and this may be old age. The source of desire and how it flowers - sensation, then thought creating the image, desire is born. Beauty exists when the "me" is not.
SA81T5 - Can the Brain Be Totally Free?
Saanen 1981 5th Public Talk - 21st July, 1981 73 min. Black&White Can the brain function wholly in spite of specialization, and be totally free? The deterioration of the brain that is kept active with solving problems when computers take over. The freedom from fear, pain, sorrow, death. Can the brain not register yesterday's delight? The consequences of being hurt from childhood. In listening to the speaker are you listening to yourself and thereby bringing about freedom in which the whole brain can operate?
SA81T6 - Love and Freedom
Saanen 1981 6th Public Talk - 23rd July, 1981 68 min. Black&White Sorrow, the essence of isolation, and our relationship to the sorrow of mankind. Sorrow and love cannot possibly go together. Afraid of ending psychologically the life we lead, with its pain and sorrow. Affecting the consciousness of mankind if a few
have brought about the ending of fear. Living in disorder, what happens when we meditate?
SA81T7 - To Live without a Shadow of Control
Saanen 1981 7th Public Talk - 26th July, 1981 72 min. Black&White Freedom to enquire. If one is anchored in anything there can be no understanding of the significance of meditation. Meditation is the operation of the whole brain. Meditation demands attention, while concentration is thought focusing its energy on one point. Quietness, stillness of the mind, the brain, necessary in order to perceive.
SA82T2 - What Makes Our Lives So Fragmented?
Saanen 1982 2nd Public Talk - 13th July, 1982 75 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Where to begin, seeing all that is going on in the world - dangerous, destructive, degenerating, vulgar. Thought seeking security in isolation because it is fragmented, but if one is very clear why should there be a demand for security? Cause implies movement of the past, which may alter the future - can the cause be dissolved without a future effect?
SA82T3 - An Intelligence Beyond Cause
Saanen 1982 3rd Public Talk - 15th July, 1982 74 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F If one ends the cause what is beyond the cause? Intelligence has no cause; it is not the movement of time-thought with its cunning, its capacity to adjust itself. The possibility of observing one's disorder and its ending without any cause. Intelligence is total security, love beyond cause, then the universe, being total order, is open. Can intelligence, which has no cause, act in our relationship?
SA82T4 - What Are We Human Beings Trying To Become?
Saanen 1982 4th Public Talk - 18th July, 1982 75 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F Living in time there is no change in the condition of man. Observing without the old instrument of thought. Observing the cause without wanting to transform it. Looking at the cause with intelligence which has no cause. Desire, time, thought as one movement causes fear. With no escape and focusing attention on the cause, what happens?
SA82T5 - What Is It To Listen, To Learn, and To Observe?
Saanen 1982 5th Public Talk - 20th July, 1982 66 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F The limitation of acting, learning from a conditioned brain. Observing without accumulated responses. The relationship of beauty, love, compassion and intelligence. Anything that continues can be measured - is there a looking at continuity without measurement, and is love measurement?
SA82T6 - Meditation and the Ending of the Self
Saanen 1982 6th Public Talk - 22nd July, 1982 69 min. Black&White, Translations: Audio: D F The cause of suffering is isolation. With the ending of cause, is there peace? Remaining with suffering. Will the energy of desire, thought, end sorrow? The possibility of freeing our limited, mechanical brain from its conditioning. Living in this appalling, destructive world with intelligence and love, which has no cause. Meditation is freedom from all measurement and the total denial of the self.
SA83T1 - Is It Possible To Live in Peace?
Saanen 1983 1st Public Talk - 10th July, 1983 72 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cz D E F I J Pl Ru, Audio: Cz D E F I J NL Pl Ru Laying the foundation of peace, psychologically, and building on that. You are a movement of memory. The necessity of freedom from memory to live with a sense of abundance, flowing peace. The future is non-fact; a fact is that which is happening and that which has happened. Can there be a mutation in the brain cells, or are we condemned to live with conditioning in perpetual conflict, and so no peace at all?
SA83T2 - The Function of the Brain
Saanen 1983 2nd Public Talk - 12th July, 1983 70 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cz D E F I J Pl Ru, Audio: Cz D E F I J NL Pl Ru Man is basically concerned with himself. With tremendous experiences of every kind, the brain has not resolved conflict. The brain lives on memories, not facts, and is therefore very limited. What is the quality of a brain that can penetrate to find its deep function? Is your brain, consciousness, separate from the rest of humanity? The effect on society if there is a fundamental mutation in my brain.
SA83T3 - Seeking Security?
Saanen 1983 3rd Public Talk - 14th July, 1983 70 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cz D E F I J Pl Ru, Audio: Cz D E F I J NL
Pl Ru Man has sought security in the nation, in belonging to something, in the psyche, in illusions, in god-who has created that god? Unless the brain is totally secure, unconfused, it must be in turmoil. Seeing the false as the false, illusion as illusion, the brain becomes clear; it is intelligence that sees it is false. Is enlightenment, understanding, perception, a matter of time?
SA83T4 - What Is Supreme Intelligence?
Saanen 1983 4th Public Talk - 17th July, 1983 69 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cz D E F I J Pl Ru, Audio: Cz D E F I J NL Pl Ru To investigate what is intelligence, negate what is not intelligence. It needs time to pursue the idea of non-violence, meanwhile one is violent. Our consciousness, with its content, contains the past, the present and the future - the "now" contains the future unless there is a fundamental mutation. Remaining with the fact ends the deterioration of the brain.
SA83T5 - Unconditioning the Brain Cells
Saanen 1983 5th Public Talk - 19th July, 1983 67 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cz D E F I J Pl Ru, Audio: Cz D E F I J NL Pl Ru Computers, ultra-intelligent machines, are acting from the outside on the human brain - what will happen to the brain if we don't change from the inside? The effect on the whole consciousness of man if a few are fundamentally free of conditioning. The basic factors of fear, biological or psychological, and the relationship of fear to time, thought, comparison.
SA83T6 - The Question of Religion and Meditation
Saanen 1983 6th Public Talk - 21st July, 1983 77 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cz D E F I J Pl Ru, Audio: Cz D E F I J NL Pl Ru The possibility of total order only with the freedom from fear, hurt, the pursuit of pleasure, and from becoming. The art of listening to the sound of the word, and understanding the words "better" and "more". Not asking "how", you exert your own capacity. The possibility of a mutation when the brain ends its accustomed outward and inward measuring.
SA84T1 - If All Time Is Now, What Is Action?
Saanen 1984 1st Public Talk - 8th July, 1984
78 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cc Cm D E F I Pl Ro, Audio: Cc Cm D E F I NL Pl Ro Perception is denied when you have problems. If I don't fundamentally change, the future is what I am now. No psychological becoming. If I understand that all time is now, what then is action? The past is so formidable that it controls, shapes our action, or you have a future ideal, theory, and act according to that. Action based on thought is limited. Is there an action which is so complete now that it is not fragmentary?
SA84T2 - The Relationship of Health to Freedom
Saanen 1984 2nd Public Talk - 10th July, 1984 72 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cc Cm D E F I Pl Ro, Audio: Cc Cm D E F I NL Pl Ro Is freedom choice? Is it there in becoming? Does it lie in expressing ambition, trying to fulfil desires? Words condition the brain. Does the constant conflict in which human beings live contribute to health? Is there an energy uncontaminated by conflict? Is the brain itself a problem? The relationship between the problem and time.
SA84T3 - Thought and the Divisive Process
Saanen 1984 3rd Public Talk - 12th July, 1984 77 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cc Cm D E F I Pl Ro, Audio: Cc Cm D E F I NL Pl Ro Inwardly why are we so limited, so concerned with ourselves? Does the brain seek security while creating division? Is thought creating division in relationship? Can there ever be complete experience? The experiencer is all the accumulated memories. Is love thought, time, pleasure, desire? When thought shapes sensation through image, at that moment desire is born. Can thought slow down and not capture sensation?
SA84T4 - Ending Disorder Now
Saanen 1984 4th Public Talk - 15th July, 1984 74 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cc Cm D E F I Pl Ro, Audio: Cc Cm D E F I NL Pl Ro Each of us lives in disorder, what is its cause? Will time solve that disorder? It is futile if we exercise thought to change what we are now. If there is perception that all time is contained in the "now", then what takes place? The very activity of self-centredness is producing loneliness. As long as you think time and thought are necessary in the world of the self, of the psyche, you will be perpetually in fear.
SA84T5 - Why Do We Live with Unresolved Problems?
Saanen 1984 5th Public Talk - 17th July, 1984
73 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cc Cm D E F I Pl Ro, Audio: Cc Cm D E F I NL Pl Ro Only a free brain can end problems. The art of listening. Our consciousness is perpetually in conflict with its own reactions. It is shared by all human beings. Can this consciousness cease entirely? To live with suffering and to find out why you suffer. If you are suffering how can you love another? With the ending of sorrow there is passion, energy, love and intelligence.
SA84T6 - Living with Death and Life Together
Saanen 1984 6th Public Talk - 19th July, 1984 83 min. Colour, Translations: Video: Cc Cm D E F I Pl Ro, Audio: Cc Cm D E F I NL Pl Ro Why, after thousands of years, has man not found tranquillity, a sense of quietness, peace? Why am I hurt, is it possible to end all hurts and never be hurt again? Why have human beings put death as far away as possible from their life? Can your daily life be living with ending, which is death? What is the religious mind, brain? Religion and meditation are free of knowledge, therefore the religious brain is in a state of creation.
SA85T1 - Why Does Man Live in Conflict?
Saanen 1985 1st Public Talk - 7th July, 1985 75 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Gr I, Audio: D F Gr I NL Is there a cause for mankind's unceasing conflict? Why are human beings all over the world in perpetual conflict, with the environment, with their governments? What is the cause for this conflict, not only outwardly but also most deeply, inside the skin as it were? Realizing that consciousness is the consciousness of mankind, conflict ceases. The art of living. Seeing - where gathering is not necessary.
SA85T2 - To Be Utterly Free of Disorder
Saanen 1985 2nd Public Talk - 10th July, 1985 79 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Gr I, Audio: D F Gr I NL What is it to be good? Searching for order, living in disorder. Should we not instead understand why it exists and whether it is possible to be free of it. Does conflict exist when there are opposing factors in life, the good and the bad? Experience being limited, can I experience the immensity of order of the universe? Is there something else as active, clear, precise and energetic as thought?
SA85T3 - Seeing Self-interest as the Root of Fear
Saanen 1985 3rd Public Talk - 14th July, 1985
75 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Gr I, Audio: D F Gr I NL Self-interest must bring division, conflict. Is it a fence of self- protection to ward off any hurt? Can you look at yourself without the word? Are you aware that hurts make a barrier of fear? If you see something clearly, you don't have to decide, choose, or ask for help, you act. If you see the cause, that very perception ends the cause. If thought creates fear, then how am I to stop thinking?
SA85T4 - Beauty Is the Quiet of the Self Forgotten
Saanen 1985 4th Public Talk - 17th July, 1985 74 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Gr I, Audio: D F Gr I NL Is there beauty when there is conscious endeavour, or only when the self is not? Psychologically is it necessary to have any kind of self-interest? Where there is selfinterest there must be fragmentation. Self-interest hides behind austerity. Is there an austerity that is not a sensation? When does sensation become desire? Does sorrow exist as long as there is self-interest, is it engendered, cultivated by memory?
SA85T5 - Silence as the Ground of the Eternal
Saanen 1985 5th Public Talk - 21st July, 1985 78 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Gr I, Audio: D F Gr I NL Desire is the result of sensation. Thought gives sensation a shape, an image. Is love put together by thought? If there is no time, is there death? Can one be free of attachment completely without waiting for death? Is there an absolute, irrevocable truth, independent of time, environment, knowledge? Meditation is not a conscious act. When there is this immense silence there is that which is unnameable.
SD70T1 - How Does One Learn About Oneself?
San Diego 1970 1st Public Talk - 5th April, 1970 60 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F Seeing all this division and chaos what is one to do? Not being dependent on some saviour or authority, where do we look for light? Being broken up with contradictory desires, having no love, how are we to observe? Does one fragment observe the rest? The observer is violence. Can you observe at the moment of violence or anger without the censor? Is there dullness if I don't compare? Do you understand anything through comparison?
SD70T2 - Can the Human Mind Be
Completely Free of Fear? San Diego 1970 2nd Public Talk 6th April, 1970 60 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F
Ending fear, both hidden and open. Fear is a movement away from "what is". Can a fearful, dependent mind know joy or love? Will analysis free the mind from fear? Analysis implies time. Is analysis a fragment of the ego? Are fear and pleasure interrelated? Sustaining pleasure and maintaining fear, thought separates itself as the analyser. Clarity of thought is needed but it also breeds fear, so what is one to do?
SD70T3 - Understanding Meditation Requires Order
San Diego 1970 3rd Public Talk - 7th April, 1970 60 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F Isn't our actual daily life disorder? In pleasure there is frustration, pain, dependency is that love? Why has sex become so important? Can the mind be so awake that it needs no experience, no challenge? Through the negation of what is not love, you come to that which is love. Without understanding living, love, death, meditation is merely an escape, a form of self-hypnosis.
SD70T4 - What Is Meditation?
San Diego 1970 4th Public Talk - 9th April, 1970 60 min. Colour, Translations: Video: E F, Audio: E F Every form of search must come to an end in meditation. Order comes with understanding disorder. Is control necessary for order, do we need it when there is understanding of "what is"? Without love that is not touched by pleasure, meditation is self-hypnosis. The mind must be quiet to observe. If you have this extraordinary thing going on in your life, it is everything; you are the teacher, the student, the beauty of the cloud and that is love.
UN85T - Why Can't Man Live Peacefully on the Earth?
United Nations 1985 Public Talk - 11th April, 1985 68 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Man has not lived peacefully. Organizations have not brought peace to man. The effect on mankind if we have the vitality, the energy to end conflict within ourselves, and to realize, not theoretically but actually, the consequences of being programmed. Man is trapped in a psychological movement, without ending this it is not possible to see something afresh.
WA85T1 - In the Present Is the Whole of Time
Washington D.C. 1985 1st Public Talk - 20th April, 1985 94 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F P, Audio: D F P The world is in perpetual conflict; we are the world. Humanity has accepted fear as a way of life. The relationship of fear to time and thought. A total mutation now in our
way of living, thinking, feeling. The place of memory and thought: if there were no experiencer, would there be experience?
WA85T2 - At the End of Sorrow Is Passion
Washington D.C. 1985 2nd Public Talk - 21st April, 1985 88 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F P, Audio: D F P The relationship of order and disorder to action. With the ending of suffering there is passion. Death is the ending of all our memories, everything that man has put together. Living now, not at the end of one's life, with death all the time. The effect on the human brain of practising a system of meditation day after day. There must be freedom to enquire into religion and meditation which is not determined.
BR76CTM1 - Are We Aware that We Are Fragmented?
Brockwood Park 1976 1st Conversation with Dr. Bohm & Dr. Shainberg - 17th May, 1976 72 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F No awareness of wholeness if one is fragmented. Thought creates the centre. When there are two opposing desires there is conflict, and then you become conscious. I am a fragment and therefore am creating more fragments, more confusion, more sorrow. Seeking security is the beginning of fragmentation. Can I be free of the desire to be psychologically secure? The centre, which in itself is a fragment, is the dominating factor.
BR76CTM2 - A Mechanical Way of Living Leads to Disorder
Brockwood Park 1976 2nd Conversation with Dr. Bohm & Dr. Shainberg - 18th May, 1976 72 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Is there psychological security, a sense of well-founded deep-rooted existence? My security lies in some image, a picture, symbol, conclusion, ideal. I meet you with the past. If there is no real, basic, deep security is there a tomorrow, psychologically? Action comes through perception, not ideation. The brain accepts the mechanical because it wants order. When the past meets the present and ends there, there is something fresh.
BR76CTM3 - Can I Completely Change at the Very Root?
Brockwood Park 1976 3rd Conversation with Dr. Bohm & Dr. Shainberg - 18th May, 1976 62 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F
Why do human beings accept such appalling misery? Is it possible to change at the very root of our being? Who will tell me? Authority exists because human beings are in disorder. Rejecting authority I become very sane, have more energy. I can only find correct action if there is no disorder in me, and however real the "me" is, it is the source of disorder. Observing the content of consciousness. How am I not to be I?
BR76CTM4 - In Aloneness You Can Be Completely Secure
Brockwood Park 1976 4th Conversation with Dr. Bohm & Dr. Shainberg - 19th May, 1976 69 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Do human beings not radically transform because they are frightened not to belong to a group, to something definite; are they afraid to stand completely alone? Alone is all one, no fragmentation; that is total order. Can we step out of the stream of this utter confusion, disorder, sorrow, hope, travail, despair? Societies, religions, cultures are based on thought - does thought realize it has made this chaos? When the movement of thought ends there is total action.
BR76CTM5 - Your Image of Yourself Prevents Relationship with Others
Brockwood Park 1976 5th Conversation with Dr. Bohm & Dr. Shainberg - 19th May, 1976 69 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Is there such a thing as the unconscious? The fragmented mind divides the conscious from the unconscious. Every human being has an image of himself of which he is unconscious. What is the origin of such images? Images prevent peace and love in the world, they prevent relationship. Our consciousness is our images, conclusions, ideas if there is no image-making, what is consciousness? If one remains with the fact there is a transformation.
BR76CTM6 - Any Form of Image Prevents the Beauty of Relationship
Brockwood Park 1976 6th Conversation with Dr. Bohm & Dr. Shainberg - 20th May, 1976 68 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F What will bring about a radical transformation in the total consciousness of human beings? My consciousness is the consciousness of the world. The maker of images is the past, the observer, the "me", which is in essence the image. The moment you see the observer is the observed, is the maker of images, it is finished. When there are none of the things that create division what comes into being?
BR76CTM7 - Life Is Sacred
Brockwood Park 1976 7th Conversation with Dr. Bohm & Dr. Shainberg - 20th May, 1976 68 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Does death have a meaning beyond the death of the image? Ending of sorrow brings compassion - do you understand what compassion is, do you have that sense of astonishing energy? Without compassion human beings are destroying themselves. Have an insight into sorrow, not the sorrow of thought, but the sorrow of mankind, of ignorance, and out of that insight is compassion. Is there something sacred, untouched by man?
BR78CBS1 - We Are All Caught in the Idea of Progress
Brockwood Park 1978 1st Conversation with Buddhist Scholars - 22nd June, 1978 99 min. Black&White Knowledge means accumulation of information, experience, facts, theories, principles, the past and the present, all that bundle we call knowledge. Can a mind that is burdened with knowledge see truth? Man thinks reading what Buddha or Christ said will help him to jump into heaven. The possibility of looking at something without the word, without the association of words, past remembrances, then only I see the fact.
BR78CBS2 - Can We Live without Identifying?
Brockwood Park 1978 2nd Conversation with Buddhist Scholars - 23rd June, 1978 94 min. Black&White Brushing aside all organized religions. What is death? Is there life after death - if not, what is the point of living? Identification process is the essence of the self - without identification is there the self? Can thought end while living? The possibility of living a daily life with death, which is the ending of the self. The moment you have an insight it is finished.
BR78CBS3 - Does Free Will Exist?
Brockwood Park 1978 3rd Conversation with Buddhist Scholars - 23rd June, 1978 115 min. Black&White What is the origin of will? We say free will exists because we can choose - apart from material things, is there choice? Possibility of an action in which there is no effort of will and therefore no choice. What is the origin of thought, how did it begin in me? Why does thought enter into action? The mind is limited while it is functioning within the field of thought. Is there an action which is total, whole, not partial? Can I see humanity in myself?
BR79CBS1 - Can Truth Be Perceived Through Time?
Brockwood Park 1979 1st Conversation with Buddhist Scholars - 28th June, 1979 93 min. Black&White Is there a difference between reality and truth? All that thought has put together is reality - literature, poetry, painting, illusions, gods, symbols. The beauty of the earth is not created by thought. Truth is not perceivable through time. Psychological time may be an illusion. Is truth measurable by words? Truth is timeless, thought is of time, the two cannot run together. Truth can only exist when the self is not.
BR79CBS2 - What Is It That Dies?
Brockwood Park 1979 2nd Conversation with Buddhist Scholars - 28th June, 1979 108 min. Black&White, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Is there life after death? The consciousness of human beings, the loneliness, despair, sorrow, fear, is its content. Each person goes through the same tragedies, misfortunes humanity is one. Then what is death, who is it that dies? The stream of sorrow, of consciousness, goes on when I die. To find out what death is I have to be with death to end beliefs, attachment, everything I have collected. Insight is not of the stream of consciousness.
BR79CT1 - The Relationship between Teacher and Student
Brockwood Park 1979 1st Conversation with Five Teachers - 17th June, 1979 58 min. Black&White, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Modern education merely concerned with giving information, a certain amount of knowledge, to help the student get a career. Is there any deeper relationship in a Krishnamurti school? Are we here not merely concerned with the now, good relationship, mathematics, but with the whole significance of life? Psychologically, teacher and student are on the same level. How shall we help each other to be free of mediocrity and to uncondition ourselves?
BR79CT2 - We Have Divided Life as the Outer and the Inner
Brockwood Park 1979 2nd Conversation with Five Teachers - 20th June, 1979 55 min. Black&White, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F What is education? It should be preparation for the whole of life instead of limiting it to earning a livelihood. Are we trying to change human character from the outside or the inside? Or is there no such division, but a constant moving, outer and inner? Relationship with the student - being concerned about his dress, the way he walks, talks, the language he uses, cultivating taste, manners, the whole of it, helping him to
be free of fear, to be free.
BR79CT3 - The Art of Listening
Brockwood Park 1979 3rd Conversation with Five Teachers - 23rd June, 1979 57 min. Black&White Relationship between teacher and student when both realize they are conditioned. Human beings, wherever they live, are conditioned by society, culture, religion and ambition expressing itself in the desire for success. Is conditioning self-centredness? Prejudice, a certain point of view which I stick to, prevents listening. If you are passionately involved, not verbally, but wholly, in what you are saying, your very passion makes me listen to you.
BR80CB11 - An Order Beyond All Human Order and Disorder
Brockwood Park 1980 11th Conversation with Dr. David Bohm - 14th September, 1980 76 min. Black&White Is there an order which is universal? Is there a ground of all human movement? Nature is order unless man interferes. Isn't the "me" and the attempt of the mind to measure itself, the source of disorder? The man-made mind is limited, illusory. Will emptying the consciousness of its content end that limitation? Can there be an insight that transforms the man-made mind, that will alter my whole structure, that will clear away all attachment?
BR80CB12 - Can Insight Uncondition the Mind?
Brockwood Park 1980 12th Conversation with Dr. David Bohm - 16th September, 1980 63 min. Black&White Is there security in accumulation? The movement of accumulation brings division. Insight is a totally different kind of movement. The general and the particular are one, not divided. Isn't the outward urge to accumulate carried inward? Psychological accumulation is time and thought. If you accumulate knowledge of yourself then you build an image. Intelligence, love will break down the wall built by accumulating.
BR80CB13 - The Ending of "Psychological" Knowledge
Brockwood Park 1980 13th Conversation with Dr. David Bohm - 18th September, 1980 57 min. Black&White Enormously difficult to be free of knowledge. Energy is dissipated by living in a groove formed by knowledge. Listening can break down the wall built by
accumulating knowledge. Will only a few, the discontented, listen? Doesn't insight become an idea through knowledge? Does communication come from knowledge or freedom? Pure perception, love and intelligence are all one - will that break down the wall of knowledge?
BR80CB14 - The Mind in the Universe
Brockwood Park 1980 14th Conversation with Dr. David Bohm - 20th September, 1980 53 min. Black&White Is it possible to have a mind that is completely empty of all the things which thought has put together? Is this emptiness within the mind itself, or beyond it? Emptiness has no centre, and in it there is a movement of timeless energy. Is the mind capable of that extraordinary stillness? Is the movement out of stillness the movement of creation? There is the universal mind, and the human mind can be of that when there is freedom.
BR80CB15 - Can Personal Problems Be Solved and Fragmentation End?
Brockwood Park 1980 15th Conversation with Dr. David Bohm - 27th September, 1980 74 min. Black&White Why have human beings not been able to solve their problems? Do we think together by sharing opinions? No people, in any country, work together. How do I help my brother? Becoming breeds inattention. Through discussing inattention can we discover what is attention? Is attention the new factor necessary for change? Making the mind go very deeply into itself and then perhaps it comes upon compassion, love, and intelligence.
BR82CBW - If There Is Love There Is Unity
Brockwood Park 1982 Conversation with Drs. Bohm & Wilkins - 12th February, 1982 59 min. Black&White One has to begin with oneself. Can the content of consciousness, the result of thought, be wiped out? Can all thought - fear, anxiety, agony, beliefs - stop? To love somebody means no thought, and it brings about a totally different relationship, a different action. Where there is love thought can be used, not the other way round. Ending attachment. Can I be free from the fear of death and live with it?
BR82CPJ1 - How Does One Enquire into the Source of All Life?
Brockwood Park 1982 1st Conversation with Pupul Jayakar - 21st June, 1982 91 min. Black&White
What is the source of all existence, all life, all action? How does a mind enquire into something extra-ordinary, that must have a quality not only of the universal, cosmic, but of supreme order? Enquiring into oneself is to enquire into the origin of life. Start with the impossible. What is the state of mind that has put away something man has carried for a million years? Such a mind has no bondage, no dependence or attachment of any kind.
BR82CPJ2 - Can We Live without the Burden of a Thousand Yesterdays?
Brockwood Park 1982 2nd Conversation with Pupul Jayakar - 23rd June, 1982 68 min. Black&White Is it possible to keep the mind very young, and yet ancient? Can the brain, which has been conditioned for millions of years, wipe away its conditioning and have a quality of pristine freshness? The conditioned brain has the inherent quality of its own deterioration. Can the brain be young, fresh, alive, original? Can the content which makes up consciousness end itself so that there is a totally different dimension?
BR83CB1 - Is There an Action That Is Not Touched by Thought?
Brockwood Park 1983 1st Conversation with Dr. David Bohm - 11th June, 1983 82 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F J, Audio: F J All man's problems, psychologically as well as in other ways, are the result of thought. We are pursuing the same pattern of thought and thought will never solve any of these problems. The whole structure of the "me", which is my consciousness, name, form, the various experiences, all that is put together by thought. Whatever action is born of limited thought must inevitably breed conflict. The "me" is divisive.
BR83CB2 - Is There Evolution of Consciousness?
Brockwood Park 1983 2nd Conversation with Dr. David Bohm - 20th June, 1983 68 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F The future of mankind is determined through action in time. Thought cannot bring change. The brain is conditioned physically, chemically. Psychological conditioning is centred in the self. The conditioning which determines the self is creating the damage. Can conditioned brain cells change? The conditioned brain's relationship to the mind is limited: when not conditioned is it the instrument of the mind?
BR83CPJ1 - What Will Bring About Change in the Brain?
Brockwood Park 1983 1st Conversation with Pupul Jayakar - 24th June, 1983 77 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Is there an outside agency that will bring change in the brain cells? There is only
thought, not Eastern or Western thought. What do we mean by culture and how does it come into being? Is it that which is contained in the brain cells? Man has lived on this earth for a million years and we are as primitive now as we were before. What will make human beings change, bring about a radical mutation in themselves? Is culture preventing this?
BR83CPJ2 - Why Are We Frightened To Be Nothing?
Brockwood Park 1983 2nd Conversation with Pupul Jayakar - 25th June, 1983 68 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F Ru, Audio: F Ru Is there a movement which is not of time, which is eternal? The brain is conditioned by time and thought. As long as that conditioning remains, insight is not possible. Pure insight is the perception of completeness. That insight is part of the brain which is in a different dimension. The psyche is a bundle of dead memories. If I have an insight into that there is nothing. Compassion is nothing and that nothingness is supreme intelligence.
BR84CIM - Two Conversations with Iris Murdoch
Brockwood Park 1984 Two Conversations with Iris Murdoch - October, 1984 100 min. Colour The two conversations BR84CIM1 & BR84CIM2 are available on one audio or video cassette. Descriptions of these conversations can be found on the next page.
BR84CIM1 - Where There Is Self-interest Love Is Not
Brockwood Park 1984 1st Conversation with Iris Murdoch - 18th October, 1984 63 min. Colour Can love be experienced? Love is not desire, pleasure, it is not the opposite of hate, it has no relationship to jealousy, it is not attached, it can never bring conflict. Watching without judgement. Watching a precious, intricate jewel. You watch it without any thought interfering with your watching. That requires a great deal of attention, not concentration, real attention in which the self is not.
BR84CIM2 - When There Is Love There Is Truth and Beauty
Brockwood Park 1984 2nd Conversation with Iris Murdoch - 18th October, 1984 38 min. Colour My way of life, way of thinking, my action is compar- atively like the rest of mankind. Deeply I am the rest of mankind. Why are we fragmented, what has gone wrong with us? After millions of years man still fights, kills - why do we accept this way of living? Is thought itself fragmented? Silence is not the product of thought. Quietness not cultivated. What is the value of your quietness if your daily life is not affected, is
not without conflict?
BR84CMZ - Three Conversations with Mary Zimbalist
Brockwood Park 1984 Three Conversations with Mary Zimbalist - October, 1984 87 min. Colour The three conversations BR84CMZ1, BR84CMZ2 & BR84CMZ3 are available on one audio cassette or video tape. Descriptions of these conversations can be found below.
BR84CMZ1 - Knowledge Is Conditioning
Brockwood Park 1984 1st Conversation with Mary Zimbalist - 5th October, 1984 28 min. Colour Is conditioning centuries and centuries of tradition that has been handed down from generation to generation, the whole background of civilization, culture, the social impacts and the many, many experiences that one has? Does all this contribute to the conditioning of the brain? Can the brain ever be free from all the programmes it has received? In watching, the brain becomes more sensitive and that watchfulness makes it extraordinarily acute, sharp, clear. This clarity is freedom.
BR84CMZ2 - Thought and Time Are the Cause of Fear
Brockwood Park 1984 2nd Conversation with Mary Zimbalist - 5th October, 1984 29 min. Colour Why do human beings after this tremendous evolution still live with fear? Can we look at fear and in the very looking discover the origin of fear? It is part of our tradition to bring about a fragmentation of fear, but can we see not a particular branch or leaf of fear but the whole nature, the structure, the quality of fear? Time is a basic factor of fear. The conditioned brain has the inherent quality of its own deterioration.
BR84CMZ3 - Religion Is an Enquiry
Brockwood Park 1984 3rd Conversation with Mary Zimbalist & Ray McCoy 14th October, 1984 28 min. Colour What is religion? Is it the search of human beings for something outside their own daily lives, something other than their petty self- centred activity, beyond their cruelty and vulgarity? The religious mind or religious activity of a human being that is not something outside our usual activity. Religion is an enquiry, putting aside authority,
without a motive, which has no path, no direction, so it becomes extraordinarily subtle.
BR84CRE - Can Fear Be Completely Wiped Away?
Brockwood Park 1984 Conversation with Ronald Eyre - 24th June, 1984 86 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F The significance of life. Our whole way of living has become a movement of fear, fear of losing a job, fear of my wife or husband, of not being successful, all leading to the ultimate fear of death. Is it possible to end fear, not a particular fear, but end the whole tree of fear? Why does thought enter the realm of the psyche? Is there a state of mind, brain, where there is a complete ending of knowledge? That is creation.
BR85CS1 - What Was Your Background Like?
Brockwood Park 1985 1st Conversation with Four Students - 2nd June, 1985 61 min. Colour What were your parents like, how did they treat you? What was your relationship to your mother, father, brothers, sisters, and what did you feel? Was there a great deal of affection, care, responsibility? What was your relationship to the whole of life, to the trees, the grass, the flowers and to your parents? Have you discovered for yourself what your background is, your conditioning, why you think this and not that? That is where you begin to learn about yourself.
BR85CS2 - There Is Freedom When There Is Learning
Brockwood Park 1985 2nd Conversation with Four Students - 9th June, 1985 64 min. Colour Do you see the difference between acquiring knowledge, memorizing and learning, not only to pass exams but to have a certain skill, to earn a livelihood? You are being programmed when you are learning history, mathematics, accumulating information, learning how to dance, to play football or cricket. If, in the same way, you use knowledge of what you have learned about me, that becomes a memory, then it becomes a barrier and you don't look at me afresh.
BR85CS3 - Isn't Comparison a Form of Violence?
Brockwood Park 1985 3rd Conversation with Four Students - 18th June, 1985 61 min. Colour Will you stop your own violence? What is non- violence? Aren't you psychologically violent, don't you compete? Hasn't your brain been programmed to compare, to react which is mechanical? Observing the whole movement of comparison. How do you react to what is happening in the world? Can you look without the word? Isn't learning
observing without the word? Don't say, I'm stuck, nobody is going to help.
CL68CHS - Authority Is Destructive
Claremont 1968 Conversation with Huston Smith - November 1968 64 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Why is man not capable of clear perception and action? Is clarity a matter of intellectual perception, or a perception with your whole being? In this confused world is it possible to find a clarity that is constant and true? One of the major blocks to clarity is this total acceptance of authority. Man is the result of time. New experiences break through only when there is an absence of the past. To understand something new I must look with clear eyes.
MA82CPA - Reading the Book of Mankind
Madras 1982 Conversation with P. Jayakar & A. Patwardhan - 18th December, 1982 65 min. Black&White What is the nature of "what is"? The whole history of man is part of our consciousness. Do you see the truth that you are the result of that vast complex book of the story of man? What is the instrument with which I read that book? What is the mind and the brain? Can thought ever be free of its limitation? Is there an action, a state, which is not the movement of thought? Looking at the beauty of the sea with all your senses and eyes.
OJ82CNM1 - Roots of Psychological Disorder
Ojai 1982 1st Conversation with Drs. Bohm, Sheldrake & Hidley - 16th April, 1982 60 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F What is psychological disorder? Isn't self-centred activity the origin of all disorder? Disorder is the very nature of the self - have psychologists tackled this problem? Is to struggle, to suffer, to live in disorder, a natural way of living? I am society, the result of all its conditioning, also my individualistic activity has created this society. Do we accept this conditioning - is it possible to be free of it?
OJ82CNM2 - Psychological Suffering
Ojai 1982 2nd Conversation with Drs. Bohm, Sheldrake & Hidley - 17th April, 1982 60 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Is it possible to live a life free from disorder? What is security? Not being hurt and not hurting. Ideas, emotions, reactions - all this is me. The possibility of not having
images. Identifying and wanting to become. Avoidance of "what is" is an escape but to look at it is not. If I see the fact that responsibility is order, I am responsible. In division we think there is security. No security or order in isolation.
OJ82CNM3 - The Need for Security
Ojai 1982 3rd Conversation with Drs. Bohm, Sheldrake & Hidley - 17th April, 1982 61 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Is there such a thing as absolute psychological security, and why do I want it? Is it to feel content, without fear, anxiety, agony? Is it that unconsciously we know the self is unstable? If the content of our consciousness can be changed, would there be need for security? The content of one's consciousness is unclear, messy, but we don't recognize this mess is me. To empty the content of consciousness so that the self is not.
OJ82CNM4 - What Is a Healthy Mind?
Ojai 1982 4th Conversation with Drs. Bohm, Sheldrake & Hidley - 18th April, 1982 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F The importance of attention. Attention implies a great deal of care, affection, love, not just mental but with all your being. Thought thinks what it has created is holy - can we understand that there is nothing holy about thought? To find out if there is anything sacred I must start very near - with me. Is attention an act of will? In attention is the mind silent? When there is a great silence, then that which is eternal is.
OJ83CJS - What Is the Future of Our Children?
Ojai 1983 Conversation with Dr. Jonas Salk - 27th March, 1983 61 min. Colour Very few people are really concerned, committed to discovering if there is a different way of living, to find out if we can live on this earth globally, peacefully, without killing each other endlessly. Can the individual, conditioned, shaped, influenced by society, language, literature, newspapers, ever step out of it? Seeing oneself not theoretically but in the mirror of relationship. Compassion cannot be put together by thought.
SD72CA1 - Living without Sorrow
San Diego 1972 1st Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 16th February, 1972 60 min. Colour Observing without division, without the "me" interfering in the observation. Listening
without interpretation - absolutely listening. Why should I have ideals? If I have no image of you, then I'm always seeing you anew. Our relationship is actually between these two images. When you empty the content, your consciousness as the "me" is not and you're listening with quite a different elan, at a different dimension.
SD72CA2 - What Is the Point of Education?
San Diego 1972 2nd Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 16th February, 1972 60 min. Colour What is the function and quality of the educator? Can he establish a relationship with the student which is not authoritarian, but one of mutual enquiry, study? The love of what I'm doing explodes everything else; that very love is the highest form of excellence. Meditation generally means an escape, but in its deepest sense it is nonclinical, non-analytical, seeing things as they are, self- knowing.
SD72CES1 - Goodness Only Flowers in Freedom
San Diego 1972 1st Conversation with Father Eugene Shallert - 17th February, 1972 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Freedom is the negation of being conditioned by any culture or religion. Instead of bringing man together religions have separated man. Harmony is not possible if there is any form of division, inside or outside. Emptying the mind of the "me" - reality cannot flower if the "me" is there. How is the content to be emptied at one stroke? The very perceiving is the act of emptying.
SD72CES2 - Ending Disorder Is the Ending of Death
San Diego 1972 2nd Conversation with Father Eugene Shallert - 17th February, 1972 56 min. Colour, Translations: Video: F, Audio: F Inwardly we are all in a state of confusion. How is it possible for a human to bring about a total psychological revolution? Watching "what is" and moving from there. It is a living thing. First understand what it means to live, not what it means to die. Death is perfect order because it is the ending of disorder. The ending of disorder is to be aware of disorder choicelessly. Then you can find out what is the immeasurable.
SD74CA1 - Knowledge and the Transformation of Man
San Diego 1974 1st Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 18th February, 1974 60 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F
It is our business as human beings to realize the enormous suffering, misery, confusion there is in the world. Do we realize with all seriousness our responsibility to the whole of mankind? Do we see that we are the world, it is not separate from us? What place has knowledge in changing the quality of a mind that has become brutal, violent, petty, selfish, greedy, ambitious? What are the limits of knowledge? Can there be freedom from the known, actually?
SD74CA2 - Knowledge and Conflict in Human Relationships
San Diego 1974 2nd Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 18th February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F P, Audio: D F P What place has knowledge in relationship? There must be freedom from the known, otherwise the known is merely the repetition of the past, tradition, the image. When the observer observes he is observing with memories, experience, hurts, despairs, hopes, with all that background of knowledge. Wherever there is the operation of the observer, who is the past, who is knowledge, in that activity there is division and therefore conflict in relationship.
SD74CA3 - What Is Communication with Others?
San Diego 1974 3rd Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 19th February, 1974 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What does it mean to be serious? In the word "communication" is implied the art of listening, which demands a quality of attention in which there is a real sense of having an insight as we go along each second. There is communion only when there is communication at the same moment, with the same intensity, passion. Responsibility means total commitment. Delegating responsibility I become irresponsible.
SD74CA4 - What Is a Responsible Human Being?
San Diego 1974 4th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 19th February, 1974 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What is your responsibility for human growth, culture, goodness? What is your responsibility to the earth? When you feel responsible for a child, there is a flowering of real affection, care, you don't train him to kill for his country. Human beings are conditioned to be irresponsible. What are serious people to do with irresponsible people? In total responsibility, in which freedom and care go together, the mind has no images.
SD74CA5 - Order Comes from the Understanding of Our Disorder
San Diego 1974 5th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 20th February, 1974 59 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F How has the phenomenon of disorder come about and what is order? Is it something imposed, a discipline, acceptance? Consumerism is now the pattern of the world. A mind caught in measurement can never find truth. Is it possible to look without measurement? Is it possible to live a life, the whole of life - living, acting, laughing, crying - without a shadow of comparison?
SD74CA6 - The Nature and Total Eradication of Fear
San Diego 1974 6th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 20th February, 1974 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F Can the mind be free of fear? Physical and psychological fears are interrelated. Conscious as well as unconscious fears that the mind has produced, cultivated. Can all these fears be exposed so that the mind sees them completely? Is there a way of dealing with fear, not with the branches of it, but with the root of it? Behind the words, the descriptions, the explanations, what is fear?
SD74CA7 - Understanding, Not Controlling, Desire
San Diego 1974 7th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 21st February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What is pleasure? What is desire? We are not condemning pleasure, but observing it. To go into the question of pleasure one has to look into desire. How is very strong desire born, how does it take place in each one of us? Must it be controlled at all? Why has pleasure become so important in life? It is an extraordinary thing. To see a beautiful thing and to enjoy it, what is wrong with that?
SD74CA8 - Does Pleasure Bring Happiness?
San Diego 1974 8th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 21st February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What is pleasure, what keeps it going? What is the pursuit, the constant direction of it? Seeing something really beautiful, breathtaking, then thought comes along and says, how extraordinary it was, what a delight. Isn't there then desire for repetition? Thought gives nourishment, sustains it and gives a direction to pleasure. Why should thought come into it at all? Being attentive means diligently watching.
SD74CA9 - Sorrow, Passion and Beauty
San Diego 1974 9th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 22nd February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What is beauty? Has man lost touch with nature? Must beauty be expressed, does it need the word, the stone, colour, paint? Or is it something that cannot be put into words, buildings, statues? Understanding action. The seeing is the doing. Without passion you can't have beauty. Remaining with suffering brings passion. Passion means the complete abandonment of the self, and therefore the austerity of great beauty.
SD74CA10 - The Art of Listening
San Diego 1974 10th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 22nd February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Ru, Audio: D F Ru What is seeing, listening, learning? Do we see actually or through a screen of prejudice, a screen of our experiences, wishes, pleasures, fears between us and the object? Do we ever see the thing at all? Does the act of listening bring complete freedom from all statements? I learn in order to gain reward or avoid punishment. Is there another kind of learning that is not accumulating and acting? Have we learned anything? What is there to learn?
SD74CA11 - Being Hurt and Hurting Others
San Diego 1974 11th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 25th February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Ru, Audio: D F Ru What is a religious life? Religion is a gathering of all energy, at all levels. The religious mind is so attentive, the unnameable comes into being. What is the quality, structure, nature of a mind that can perceive something beyond the measurement of thought, something that is not only sacred and holy in itself but that is capable of seeing something immense? A mind that is hurt is not an innocent mind. Can our hurts be healed so that not a mark is left?
SD74CA12 - Love, Sex and Pleasure
San Diego 1974 12th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 25th February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Ru, Audio: D F Ru Can a man who is ambitious love? Is love pleasure or the expression of desire? Is it the fulfilment of sexual appetite or a thing that can be cultivated? Why have we made sex such an enormous affair? What is the relationship of joy, enjoyment and pleasure to love? To come upon this thing called love you must negate this whole thing and
understand the place of pleasure. The mind being alone is pure. Compassion comes with intelligence.
SD74CA13 - A Different Way of Living
San Diego 1974 13th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 26th February, 1974 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Ru, Audio: D F Ru What actually is living, this whole field of man's endeavour to better himself, not only in the technological world but also psychologically? Man wants to be different, he wants to be more than he is. Is there a way of living without conflict? As a human being am I ever conscious? What is consciousness? Is it its content? What is death? Is it a continuity of that consciousness? Or is death the ending of consciousness with its content?
SD74CA14 - Death, Life and Love Are Indivisible The Nature of Immortality
San Diego 1974 14th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 26th February, 1974 58 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What is death? You cannot understand death unless you are free of fear. Death becomes part of living when the content of consciousness comes to an end. Can that content be emptied, empty itself? Observing the whole content, the hidden as well as the open, the collective, the personal, the racial, the transitory. Immortality is not what thought has invented. You can be reborn, regenerated totally if you die to the content. So living is dying.
SD74CA15 - Religion, Authority and Education - Part 1
San Diego 1974 15th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 27th February, 1974 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What is religion? In the world of Islam and in the world of Buddhism the same principle goes on, worshipping an image which has been created by human beings. Can the mind observe this phenomenon and see its own demand for security, comfort, safety, permanency and deny all that? Why does the mind accept the authority and tyranny of a petty little guru and deny it politically? What is behind the acceptance of authority?
SD74CA16 - Religion, Authority and Education - Part 2
San Diego 1974 16th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 27th February, 1974
57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F What is religion, God, immortality, beauty? Can the mind be free of authority and put aside totally all the structure of thought with regard to religion, God? Can wisdom be sought through a book, a teacher, through sacrifice, torture, renunciation? Can this mind, which is the mind of the world, empty itself of all the things that man has said about reality, and be free of all the things that are born of fear, desire and pleasure?
SD74CA17 - Meditation, a Quality of Attention that Pervades All of One's Life
San Diego 1974 17th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 28th February, 1974 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F, Audio: D F Do we accept the orthodox, traditional systems of meditation? Could we honestly put away all that and ask what it is? If I start by saying I do not know what meditation is, then I'm free to flow in the enquiry. Is meditation divorced from daily living or does it cover the whole field of existence? In my enquiry am I awake or is the past so alive that it is dictating my life in the present?
SD74CA18 - Meditation and the Sacred Mind
San Diego 1974 18th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson - 28th February, 1974 57 min. Colour, Translations: Video: D F Control, direction, will, have no place in meditation. Can you be choicelessly aware of this movement of desire, control, will, action - can you watch it? What is space? Can the mind have space? When the mind is occupied with daily living, is there space? When knowledge occupies the whole field of the mind there is no space. Outward space will not give inner space. No silence when there is direction. When the mind is utterly silent what is the immeasurable?

A tragedy that human beings live in constant conflict. Joy is different from pleasure. Fear and pleasure - as long as they operate, there is constant struggle to become, to achieve. Not escaping, just watching - in the very act of attention the struggle comes to an end. The meditative mind contains all the varieties and movements of silence. Love and life go together, as love and death go together. BR75FPL is combined on one audio/video cassette with SY70IV An Interview with Ross Saunders, Sydney, 1970
BR78S1 - The Art of Questioning
Brockwood Park 1978 1st Seminar Meeting - 12th September, 1978 93 min. Black&White How can one be a light to oneself? Most of us are slaves, either to religious concepts, beliefs, symbols, or to some kind of experience, institution, images. Being caught in a routine prevents freedom. Question the way you live your life - question the whole thing. Differentiating the word from the fact. How can one approach something without any knowledge? Can we find out the right way of questioning so that out of that intelligence can arise?
BR78S2 - Is It Possible Never To Be Hurt?
Brockwood Park 1978 2nd Seminar Meeting - 13th September, 1978 102 min. Black&White Relationship is one of the most important things in life. In my relationship with another there is always tension, a sense of division, of guilt, possession, protection, or responsibility. Constant conflict from time immemorial between us - why do we accept it? Why are we hurt? Having an idea about yourself which can be hurt. Why do you have images and conclusions? Do we want to find a way of living in which there is no possibility of being hurt?
BR78S3 - Can You Face the Fact That You Are Absolutely Nothing?
Brockwood Park 1978 3rd Seminar Meeting - 14th September, 1978 103 min. Black&White Is it possible to be completely free of fear? There is physical and psychological fear are we aware of our fear and our reactions to it? Escaping from fear. Can I face the fact that I am frightened, and not do a thing about it, just face it? Facing the fact real enquiries begin, not intellectual, verbal enquiries. Investigating, exploring, and you understand it, have an insight into it - and resolve it completely.
BR78S4 - Observing Fear As It Happens
Brockwood Park 1978 4th Seminar Meeting - 16th September, 1978 100 min. Black&White What is the root of fear? When we observe thought is in operation. When there is no observer, who is the very essence of thought which is the past, there is only actually what is happening. Can that actuality be observed without the movement of thought? Ending of thought and conflict. Only when there is inattention fear comes. What is the quality of the brain when there is total attention? Is there any registration at all?
BR78S5 - Pain Is the Reaction to Attachment
Brockwood Park 1978 5th Seminar Meeting - 17th September, 1978
92 min. Black&White Can we observe the actual implications of attachment? Attachment to one's experience, the memory of it - holding on, never letting go. The difficulty of remaining with a fact. Can you let the thing you are watching tell its story, rather than you tell it? Can one watch attachment in the same way as watching a flower very closely, when you see everything in detail, the beauty of the whole thing?
BR78S6 - Can I Be a Light Globally?
Brockwood Park 1978 6th Seminar Meeting - 18th September, 1978 86 min. Black&White Is it possible to be a light to oneself, not dependent on anybody? Remaining with the fact without deviation or interference of past memories, to observe what is taking place without thought acting as a barrier. Is it possible to be completely free of all influence? To stand alone, the past with all its tradition must totally vanish. Registration on the tape of the brain must end, and no further registration take place.
BR78S7 - What Is It That Flowers?
Brockwood Park 1978 7th Seminar Meeting - 19th September, 1978 106 min. Black&White Q: What is it that flowers? Can a mind that is committed flower at all? The total mind is in a self-created trap; it is aware of this when there is pain and to escape from that pain it creates another trap. Thought in its very seed is limited. Can thought, consciousness, the totality of it, be aware of itself? If there is insight, there is intelligence and thought then has its place.
BR79S1 - What Is One To Do in a World of Increasing Violence?
Brockwood Park 1979 1st Seminar Meeting - 13th September, 1979 91 min. Black&White Approaching the question of what to do. In the world there is disorder, disintegration, confusion: I may be having difficulties with my family, keeping a job, earning a livelihood, so I am not concerned with what is happening in the world. Do I see the fact of this terror, violence, disintegration? Do I see that there is actually no division between me and the world? Or do I see it as something which has nothing to do with me?
BR79S2 - Observing My Prejudice
Brockwood Park 1979 2nd Seminar Meeting - 14th September, 1979 92 min. Black&White
Realizing that the world is me and I am the world, what is correct action in a deteriorating world? Is there an action that is accurate and not self-centred? I have prejudices of various kinds, opinions, pre- judgements, experiences, to which my mind in memory is attached. What will make each one of us drop these prejudices? Is the observer different from the bundle of prejudices? I change completely when I see the truth that the observer is the bundle.
BR79S3 - What Is the Root Cause of the Disorder in the World?
Brockwood Park 1979 3rd Seminar Meeting - 15th September, 1979 86 min. Black&White My consciousness is made up of all the accumulated despairs, anxieties, grief, sorrow and violence thought has put there. All that is me. Is there an area not put there by thought? Do I know that consciousness with all its content or only part of it? Are we missing something that has great vitality, which will wipe away all this? If you realize that you are this whole decaying humanity, there comes quite a different state and from that there is action.
BR79S4 - When the Illusion of Individuality Ends
Brockwood Park 1979 4th Seminar Meeting - 16th September, 1979 89 min. Black&White What takes place in the mind that sees that it is part of the whole? Is individual action right action? As an individual whatever I do must be destructive, pleasurable, violent. When we discover the truth that we are an integral part of this enormous humanity what place has individuality? When you drop the illusion of individuality do you still carry the memories, the past, in your mind, or have you lost the remembrance of sorrow?
BR79S5 - What Do I Do in a Deteriorating World?
Brockwood Park 1979 5th Seminar Meeting - 17th September, 1979 89 min. Black&White Can the individual that thinks it is separate, which is an illusion, love? If individuality, separative effort, is gone, then I am the world and the world is me. The possibility of having an insight into the nature of action which is not individualistic. An action without the actor who has always acted. When there is love there is care, attention, responsibility. An action will arise from your new state of mind which is a state of compassion.
BR79S6 - Can You Have Insight If There Is a Centre?
Brockwood Park 1979 6th Seminar Meeting - 18th September, 1979 86 min. Black&White
Can the individual ever be complete, whole? Can we perceive the whole movement of the individual? If there is insight and intelligence, with love and affection, what is the action of the mind in a world of violence? The quality of a mind that is no longer centred in itself. Occasional insight will not bring about a radical illumination. Insight can only take place when the centre is not.
BR84SBR1 - The Divisive Process Is the Self
Brockwood Park 1984 1st Brain Seminar Meeting - 8th June, 1984 82 min. Colour Is it possible that thought can understand the activities and complexity of one's own brain? What is thought, what is thinking? Observing one's brain without seeking externally. Does watching to learn something new imply that to observe there must be no conditioning, no observer, who is the outside? Can one observe the cause without the observer? Realizing all time is contained in the now, what is action?
BR84SBR2 - The Self Is Deceptive
Brockwood Park 1984 2nd Brain Seminar Meeting - 10th June, 1984 79 min. Colour Knowledge is stored in the brain, accumulated. What is the relationship of that knowledge to action? Action is limited by knowledge that you have accumulated. Is there an action which is not born out of limitation, that is not consciously or unconsciously connected with knowledge? Is intelligence born out of thought? Intelligence not born of thought can use knowledge. Can you look at me without the image?
BR84SBR3 - Can the Rhythm of Thought Stop?
Brockwood Park 1984 3rd Brain Seminar Meeting - 12th June, 1984 88 min. Colour Is there an intelligence which is not bound to time, or the product of thought? How does one come upon this intelligence? Is intelligence born of some totally different time, of a different state, cultivable? For thousands of years people have asked if thought, however much space it may have, can be silent. For the brain to have space mustn't there be no self?
BR85IVRF - The Role of a Flower
Brockwood Park 1985 TV Interview - Role of a Flower - First shown, 1985 28 min. Colour This interview takes place mostly at Brockwood Park in England during the annual gathering when thousands assembled to hear Krishnamurti speak. An interview with
Krishnamurti is interspersed with other interviews with a variety of people. The salient points of his life are traced through a conversation with Mary Lutyens, who knew him since childhood. Other interviews with Basil Gossage, Brockwood Park staff, and others attending the talks. Krishnamurti touches briefly on all aspects of his teaching.
SY70IV - Questions on:
Sydney 1970 TV Interview with Mr Saunders - 20th November, 1970 28 min. Black&White How can an individual, who is part of the system, get outside the system to observe it and himself? How do you get people to be aware in your sense? Have you a religious view of life? Are you saying that man has no need of any power outside himself to bring change? What do you make of death? Are you not setting yourself up as a great teacher? Where do you find truth? SY70IV is combined on one audio/video cassette with BR75FPL Film - Problems of Living.
US84FCC - The Challenge of Change
U.S.A. 1984 Film - The Challenge of Change - First shown, 1984 80 min.
