Washington DC Talks
Complete set of 2 Public Talks in Washington D.C., 1985.
Although Krishnamurti had spoken for many years in the United States, he had never given public talks in Washington, D.C. In 1985 he agreed to do so and met on two days in April of that year with large audiences from diverse backgrounds.
There is a feeling in these two talks that Krishnamurti was communicating as much as possible of the teachings which he had been giving in many parts of the world for over sixty years. Once more he invited his audiences to 'walk together, investigate together, look together at the world we have created'. In a revealing manner unique to Krishnamurti the talks go into the various factors of human conciousness playing a dominant role in our daily life. At the age of ninety, Krishnamurti spoke from the fullness of his insight and teaching.

Talk 1: In the Present Is the Whole of Time
Why are we, after this long evolution perpetually in conflict?
Being absorbed in a poem, a face is that beauty?
Why has humanity, each one of us accepted fear as a way of life?
Why do we live, act on the basis of thought? What is the relationship to time of thought?
Can there be total mutation now in all our behaviour, way of living, thinking, feeling?
If you had no memory at all could you think?
Memory arises from knowledge, experience. Is experience different from the experiencer?
If there is no experiencer, is there experience?
Talk 2: At the End of Sorrow Is Passion
What is order and what is disorder and what is their relationship to action? Can disorder end in our daily life?
Concerned as we are with our own suffering how can there be love?
Is sorrow brought about by self-pity?
What happens after death? Does one carry the memories of one's own life?
If we don't cling to a thing, then what is death?
Not at the end of life but with all my energy, vitality, can I live with death all the time?
If there is real order in one's life what then is meditation?
Following a system, practising day after day what happens to the human brain?
Is there a meditation which is not determined?
Through one's own understanding of oneself there is that which is eternal.
