Audio | J. Krishnamurti – Saanen 1970 – Public Talk 5 – Fear and pleasure are two sides of a coin

When you face physical danger is there fear?

Can the movement of thought, which breeds fear in time, and as time, come to an end?

How will I uncover unconscious fears? If I analyse my fears, who is the analyser?

Can the movement of thought during the day be watched without the observer?

Can fear and pleasure which produce sorrow end?

Is pleasure totally different from the full delight of existence?

Why would a sensitive mind, alive and full of clarity, need to have experience at all?

Is there a difference between thought which breeds and sustains fear, and intelligence which says, ‘Be careful’?

Questions from the audience followed the talk.

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
