This is one of the finest books written on mysticism/philosophy that I have ever read. This mysticism/philosophy is very similar to that of Paul Brunton and the great Yogi Ramana Maharashi. Krishnamurti was a mystic, philosopher, author and public speaker who was gifted spiritually and was seen as the next "World Teacher" by Charles W Leadbeater who was a prominent occultist and head of the Theophist Movement. However, notwithstanding the foregoing, Krishnamurti denounced all organized belief, t ...more

This person was an awesome character. Anything about him is interesting, and this book is so well created, carefully put together and beautifully bundled that it deserves special treatment.

The good thing about this book is that it is made up of so many testimonies of people that had direct contact with him. It is as though one were witness in his life. I cried reading how beautiful his death was (if any death can be beautiful) The book transmitted to me all the love that this man created around

This was my first introduction to K sometime ago. I've never read anything so clear to the point and without any B.S. Henry Miller read him a lot,and they're both pretty cutting in their own ways.

Easy language. Common topic. Interesting analysis. Many more have written similarly since Krishnamurti's breakthrough ideas. May seem like a cloudy, lugubrious description of our existence, but not an inaccurate one.

Put this book in all schools, wipe out other nonsense, ban violence in the media (films etc), leave it all to brew for 100 years and the world will be a much nicer place to live in.

Brilliant book and highly recommended
