Bob Wallace, president of the Friends of the Library, introduces Alan Sparks, who was chair of the Religious Studies Department. Sparks briefly speaks about students in the department who are "baffled" by the writings of Krishnamurti, and about how Religious Studies was on the list of "expendable" departments in case of budgetary problems. Andreas Brown had given San Diego State University a "collection of materials" regarding Krishnamurti, and Anderson had videotaped conversations with the Indian thinker. Anderson reads a couple of paragraphs he wrote for a book on the centenary of Krishnamurti's birth, and he quotes Krishnamurti. He quotes and paraphrases Krishnamurti in the process of exposition of his philosophy.
