Video & Audio

The Complete Krishnamurti Video Collection is one of the main projects of the Foundation in recent years. It saw the release of Krishnamurti’s videos in authentic form, for free, and without adverts. Many of these videos had never been released before. The aim was to create the go-to repository of talks and dialogues online, with an emphasis on accessibility. To achieve this, hundreds of volunteers worked worldwide to subtitle Krishnamurti’s words in 30 languages, and staff at Krishnamurti Foundation Trust assigned a title and summary for each video. This release was only possible due to the years of work digitising and producing 600 full-length videos. The entirety of this work was organised or undertaken by Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, with the videos made available on the J. Krishnamurti Official YouTube channel, ensuring Krishnamurti’s vital teachings were brought into the digital era whilst maintaining their essential spirit of integrity. The Complete Video Project finalised, the focus turned to audio, with the aim of releasing a comprehensive selection of around 2,500 recordings. The collection emphasises those talks and dialogues that were not recorded on video. Krishnamurti Foundation Trust also operates a second YouTube channel, with hundreds of video extracts carefully chosen and edited to provide shorter-length videos based on topics and themes. This concise form is ideal for online viewing and sharing. Below, you will find a selection of key videos and series, complemented by outstanding audio recordings. To navigate the vast amount of material now available, we have also created three downloadable PDF directories. The first lists all available subtitled translations, the second contains links to, and information on, all our full-length audio and video productions, and the third contains links to all our audio and video extracts.
