J. Krishnamurti - San Diego 1974 - Conversation 7 - Understanding, not controlling, desireSummary:Q: What is pleasure? What is desire?We are not condemning pleasure but observing it. To go into the question of pleasure one has to look into desire. Through propaganda desire is inflamed.What is desire? How does it come about that this very strong desire is born, cultivated? Must desire be controlled at all? Desire seems to be a very active and demanding instinct that is going on all the time.Why has pleasure, whether of sex, possession, power, knowledge or enlightenment, become so extraordinarily important in life? Pleasure is an extraordinary thing. To see a beautiful thing and to enjoy it, what is wrong with that?---These videos are brought to you by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America and by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, UK.
