Product description

Product Description

The life of the 20th-century philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti was truly astonishing. As this new updated edition shows, people from all over the world would gather to hear him speak the wisdom of the ages.

Krishna was born into poverty in a South Indian village, before being adopted by a wealthy English public figure, Annie Besant. As an adult he settled in California, travelling to India and England every year to give public lectures that inspired spiritual seekers beyond any single religion.

Biographer Christine Williams carried out research over a period of four years to write this ebook account of Krishnamurti's life. She studied his massive archive of personal correspondence and talks, and interviewed people who knew him intimately.

His key message of freedom of the mind resonated with Hindus and Buddhists alike, as well as many humanists in the West.

Philosopher, teacher, lover, mystic – Krishnamurti lived all of these roles to the full.
