Listen to talks from J. Krishnamurti's Gstaad gathering in Switzerland, 1975.

This talk: Attention Implies That There Is No Centre – 22 June 1975.

• Consciousness, because it is in constant movement, has never found an energy which is not contradictory, which is not produced by desire and thought.

• Can thought ever see its own movement and the futility of its own movement?

• Attention implies that there is no center.

• Is there a perception, a seeing outside the space which is part of consciousness?

• There are two human beings, one gets conditioned and the other doesn’t. Why? How has it happened the other doesn’t get conditioned?

• How does this perception which is beyond attention, beyond awareness, beyond concentration come about?

• Thought is rather superficial, it’s merely a very small part of the operation of the brain.

• Can consciousness be completely empty of its content?

• Order and disorder

Jiddu Krishnamurti (May 12, 1895 – February 17, 1986) was a world renowned writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual subjects. His subject matter included: the purpose of meditation, human relationships, the nature of the mind, and how to enact positive change in global society. Krishnamurti was born into a Telugu Brahmin family in what was then colonial India. In early adolescence, he had a chance encounter with prominent occultist and high-ranking theosophist C. W. Leadbeater in the grounds of the Theosophical Society headquarters at Adyar in Madras (now Chennai). He was subsequently raised under the tutelage of Annie Besant and C. W. Leadbeater, leaders of the Society at the time, who believed him to be a "vehicle" for an expected World Teacher. As a young man, he disavowed this idea and dissolved the world-wide organization (the Order of the Star) established to support it. He claimed allegiance to no nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent the rest of his life traveling the world as an individual speaker, speaking to large and small groups, as well as with interested individuals. He authored a number of books, among them "The First and Last Freedom", "The Only Revolution", and "Krishnamurti's Notebook". In addition, a large collection of his talks and discussions have been published. At age 90, he addressed the United Nations on the subject of peace and awareness, and was awarded the 1984 UN Peace Medal. His last public talk was in Madras, India, in January 1986, a month before his death at home in Ojai, California. His supporters, working through several non-profit foundations, oversee a number of independent schools centered on his views on education – in India, the United Kingdom, and the United States – and continue to transcribe and distribute many of his thousands of talks, group and individual discussions, and other writings, publishing them in a variety of formats including print, audio, video and digital formats as well as online, in many languages.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
