Audio | J. Krishnamurti – Saanen 1970 – Public Talk 7 – Can the brain be quiet?

Can the old brain be completely quiet and only awaken when it is necessary to operate and function?

Can the brain, so tremendously active during the day and in sleep, be completely relaxed and quiet without any compulsion?

Caught in problems can I act without choice?

Is it possible to end a problem as it arises?

Can the brain be clear and quiet to see confusion instantly and act?

Can my brain, conditioned in the old, decide what is beauty, responsibility and love?

Is there something sacred, incomprehensibly new, an ecstasy that thought has never touched, that can be found only through meditation?

Questions from the audience followed the talk.

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
