To perceive ´what is´ is the basis of truth. 7 February 1971. Duration: 86 minutes. Where there is division, there must be conflict. A mind in conflict must inevitably be distorted, and therefore it cannot possibly see clearly what is truth. We need a total change, a deep revolution, psychological revolution, the inward revolution, without which you cannot possibly create a new society. Is it possible to observe, to perceive without the observer? How are images formed? Can the image building come to an end? Knowledge is absolutely necessary. Is it possible that knowledge, which the brain has accumulated through centuries, does not interfere with relationships? Direct perception is freedom. 10 February 1971. Duration: 80 minutes. Can the mind living in this world ever be free, not only superficially but profoundly, at the very root of its existence? ´Freedom from´ is an abstraction, but freedom in observing ´what is´ and going beyond it is actual freedom. How do I observe greed? Do I observe it as an outsider looking in, or do I observe it without the observer? Without the mind being free, you cannot live in order. Three years have passed; I have no energy to be aware of my reactions. Can we seek God through observation? Love is that quality of mind in which there is no division. 14 February 1971. Duration: 89 minutes. To live in this world with intelligence, in spite of all the complications. Is it possible to be free of fear, not only the superficial fear in relationship but the deep-rooted fear? Thought nourishes, sustains and gives continuity to fear and pleasure. When you are learning, your mind is awake. Truth isn´t second-hand; you can´t get it through a guru, a book; you have to learn about it. The beauty of learning is that you don´t know what truth is. What is love? A man who has not love in his heart but the things made by thought will make a mo 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jiddu Krishnamurti.

A pioneering exploration of four cities where East meets West and past becomes future: St. Petersburg, Shanghai, Mumbai, and Dubai. Every month, five million people move from the past to the future. Pouring into developing-world ´´instant cities´´ like Dubai and Shenzhen, these urban newcomers confront a modern world cobbled together from fragments of a West they have never seen. Do these fantastical boomtowns, where blueprints spring to life overnight on virgin land, represent the dawning of a brave new world? Or is their vaunted newness a mirage?In a captivating blend of history and reportage, Daniel Brook travels to a series of major metropolitan hubs that were once themselves instant cities - St. Petersburg, Shanghai, and Mumbai - to watch their ´´dress rehearsals for the 21st century.´´ Understanding today´s emerging global order, he argues, requires comprehending the West´s profound and conflicted influence on developing-world cities over the centuries. In 1703, Tsar Peter the Great personally oversaw the construction of a new Russian capital, a ´´window on the West´´ carefully modeled on Amsterdam, that he believed would wrench Russia into the modern world. In the 19th century, Shanghai became the fastest-growing city on earth as it mushroomed into an English-speaking, Western-looking metropolis that just happened to be in the Far East. Meanwhile, Bombay, the cosmopolitan hub of the British Raj, morphed into a tropical London at the hands of its pith-helmeted imperialists. Juxtaposing the stories of the architects and authoritarians, the artists and revolutionaries who seized the reins to transform each of these precociously modern places into avatars of the global future, Brook demonstrates that the drive for modernization was initially conflated with wholesale Westernization. 1.
