Audio | J. Krishnamurti – Saanen 1970 – Public Discussion 2 – Attachment is an escape

Q: What is the effect of fear on the mind and on one’s life?

Fear prevents the development of the mind.

Becoming conscious of what fear does, it might be possible to go beyond it. See the effects of fear.

Are you watching without memory what actually takes place when there is fear?

When you are afraid you are completely isolated.

Any action that takes place from isolation must be fragmentary.

If you see the truth that attachment and dependency are escapes, will you still try to escape?

This channel is managed by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust​​, UK​, and by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America.

The role of the foundations was described by Krishnamurti when he said,​ ​’The foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities… nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person.​’​

We maintain extensive archives of Krishnamurti’s original works and all four Krishnamurti foundations are actively engaged in the publication of material in various forms.

Our videos contain thousands of subtitles in more than 25 languages, translated by volunteers from all over the world. If you would like to help us with translating subtitles, please contact us at
