What is life?

Public Talk 1

An action with no past or future

Public Talk 1 Madras
December 28, 1985

Having lived on earth for millennia why are we as we are? What is the future of all of us? During that evolution of experience, knowledge in actual fact what has happened to each of us? What shall we do if we see the fact that we are the entire humanity? What am I to do living in this corrupt society? Will whatever I do affect society? Am I different from society? Is there an action without motive, self-interest, or seeking gain that is not dependent on the past or a pattern of the future?


Public Talk 2

Fear destroys love

Public Talk 2 Madras
January 01, 1986

To inquire into love we must ask: what is energy? What is this energy, its origin, its source? How has it begun; who created it? Is there energy that is not contained within knowledge? What is the origin of fear? Can love exist where there is fear? What place in my life have death suffering, pain, anxiety, loneliness? What has suffering to do with time? Aren't experience, knowledge, thought, limited? Don't we live by thought? Is not consciousness made up of its content? Are we individuals at all? Is death the ending of all attachment? Can you experiment with it every day?
