REVISED AND UPDATED WITH A NEW FOREWORD

A classic biography of one of the greatest spiritual teachers of our times


In 1909, when he was just fourteen, Krishnamurti was proclaimed the world teacher in whom Maitreya, the Bodhisattva of compassion, would manifest. The proclamation was made by Annie Besant, then president of the Theosophical Society, a movement that combined Western occult philosophy with Buddhist and Hindu teachings. Besant trained Krishnamurti in his role as the chosen one but twenty years later he chose to disband the order he was head of and set out alone on his endless journey.

As a contemporary of Krishnamurti and one of his closest associates, Pupul Jayakar offers an insider's view of the fascinating life and thought of an extraordinary individual.
