A s a young man, Jiddu Krisnamurti was “discovered” by the leaders of the Theosophical Society and proclaimed the next World Leader. While under the guidance of the Theosophical Society, Krishnamurti (using the pen name of Alcyone) wrote the book “At The Feet of the Master”. It is a beautiful little book that contains principals of living that can be applied by anyone.
In 1929 Krishnamurti renounced the title of World Leader and said that:
Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path…
After his renunciation of being the new “World Leader”, Krishnamurti spent the rest of his life traveling the world giving lectures and writing books. For more information on Krishnamurti and his teachings please visit the websites listed on the Links page.
