A Wholly Different Way of Living: San Diego, California 1974
28th February 1974 18th Conversation with Dr. Allan W. Anderson
'Meditation - 2'
A: Mr Krishnamurti, we were discussing in our conversation last time meditation. And just as we concluded you brought up the very beautiful analogy from the flowering of a plant, and it struck me that the order that is intrinsic to the movement of the plant as it flowers is a revelatory image of order that you have been discussing. And we were talking also about the relation of meditation to understanding on the one hand and knowledge on the other, a distinction that's very, very rarely made.
A: Though in ordinary language we make the distinction perhaps unwittingly. It's there.
