Audio | J. Krishnamurti – Saanen 1970 – Public Discussion 3 – The mind that breeds habits

Q: How does the mind watch the whole of the habit in which it lives?

Can you find out the machinery, the network of habit, go into it and let it flow through you?

Let this learning about habit carry you all day and you will discover enormous things.

Can you be aware of the waste of energy in pursuing a particular pattern of habit?

As long as the mind is caught up in the habit of fragmentary activity it cannot see the whole.

To discover something totally new and fresh the past must end.

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
