- Krishnamurti: The Years of Awakening by Mary Lutyens
Best-selling in Non Fiction See all. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne Hardback, Imagine any young boy being taken out of his hovel and poverty to be brought up under the obscure pressures of becoming the next great World Teacher by a society whose members were full across the world. Krishnamurti was set up, almost framed into great power; imagine what any lesser boy would do. He was given land and money, nice clothes, a car. I do not think he was taught humility, Krishnamurti was. With his life of leisure—but for his studies and responsibility of writing a column for the Herald of the Star —separated from the demands put on by society, Krishnamurti was able to dive into the life of his own mind and his own soul.
Are these our potentials which wait for us with thought and repose, outside the clutter of daily lives? Strip down and simplify.

We continue to see ourselves as our own best defining features, titles, names, that look in the mirror and we refuse to hold up to ourselves the understanding which will no doubt shatter the false foundations that have been created out of boredom. We are afraid and though each person may be as god we shudder at the godly in ourselves and turn back. The beliefs of Theosophy , which he later disavowed, nevertheless lent him solid concepts for his mystical experiences like a spring board. The Lord Maitreya came to him and filled him; Krishnamurti had at times extreme physical suffering when his body was being prepared; he had very intense spiritual discoveries that others witnessed and swore something else came over him or into him; his friends rarely doubted, especially once out of his youth, that he was the World Teacher.
What was not possible? Krishnamurti became extremely sure in his experiences and in his beliefs so that he was able to speak out with a conviction that never faltered or compromised. He spoke, not as the representative of any society or way of belief, but as a man who had found without doubt, the godly within himself. If you seek the truth you must go out, far away from the limitations of the human mind and heart and there discover it—and that Truth is within yourself.
Is it not much simpler to make Life itself the goal—Life itself the guide, the Master and the God—than to have mediators, gurus, who must inevitably step down the Truth and hence betray it?

- MARY LUTYENS - 1. KRISHNAMURTI. THE YEARS OF AWAKENING;
Needless to say, those in the Theosophical Society, those who had created such a fuss over this coming of the Lord, expected immortal return, power and title. Most did not understand what Krishnamurti told them; thinking for themselves to find fulfillment was so beyond any teachings gone before.
Most could not dream of independence, their whole souls rested upon a predetermined path to a predetermined Truth. I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect.
Inspired by Your Shopping History
With these words Krishnamurti dissolved the Order of the Star. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not.
I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free.
More titles to consider
Krishnamurti was a great man and his words ring out crystal and clear. We have great need for him. I have no doubt that Krishnamurti is an eternal presence by whatever way and through whatever proclamations got him there.
