EXPLORATION: Freedom From Conditioning | Professor Krishna
Show Notes

Welcome back to The Immeasurable Podcast. This episode is a talk from a previous Annual May Gathering. It's called “Freedom From Conditioning" by Professor Krishna.

Professor Krishna was born in Chennai (south India) but grew up in Indore (central India) where his parents were educationists. He first met and heard Krishnamurti in 1957-58 and continued to listen to Krishnamurti during his visits to the education center in Rajghat, Varanasi. He was a Professor of Physics at the Banaras Hindu University when in 1985 Krishnamurti asked him to take charge of the Rajghat Education Centre as its Rector and Principal of the Rajghat Besant School. He worked in this capacity until 2003 and has since been in charge of the Krishnamurti Study Centre at Rajghat. He has lectured all over the world on Krishnamurti’s teachings, science, society, and education. In 2015 he wrote a memoir entitled, A Jewel on a Silver Platter: Remembering J.Krishnamurti
