Urgency of Change: The Krishnamurti Podcast

What are you doing with your life? Can anyone show you the way, or must you be a light to yourself? Do we see the urgency of change, in ourselves and society?

One of the greatest philosophers and spiritual teachers of all time, Krishnamurti challenges us to question all that we know and discover our true nature in the here and now.

This official podcast by Krishnamurti Foundation Trust features curated themed extracts from talks, conversations between Krishnamurti and luminaries from many paths, readings of a classic by actor Terence Stamp, and much more.
