Can We Live Without Identifying?
2nd Conversation with Buddhist Scholars, Brockwood Park, England, 23rd June, 1978. Duration 94 min. B & W.

What is death? Is there life after death, is there a continuity? If not, what is the point of living at all? Why is there the whole process of identification my possessions, what I will be, success, power, prestige? The identification process is the essence of the self. Is it possible to live in daily life without this identification process which brings about the structure and the nature of the self which is the result of thought? Is it possible to be free of the "me" which produces all this chaos, this constant effort? Can thought end? Is it possible to live a daily life with death which is the ending of the self?

Can Humanity Change? - Jiddu Krishnamurti

Many have considered Buddhism to be the religion closest in spirit to J. Krishnamurti's spiritual teaching—even though the great teacher was famous for urging students to seek truth outside organized religion. This record of a historic encounter between Krishnamurti and a group of Buddhist scholars provides a unique opportunity to see what the great teacher had to say himself about Buddhist teachings. The conversations, which took place in London in the late 1970s, focused on human consciousness and its potential for transformation. Participants include Walpola Rahula, the renowned Sri Lankan Buddhist monk and scholar, author of the classic introductory text What the Buddha Taught.
