At the same time, they give new meaning and direction to humankind's search for truth. His teaching, besides being relevant to the modern age, is timeless and universal.
Krishnamurti spoke not as a guru but as a friend, and his talks and discussions are based not on tradition-based knowledge but on his own insights into the human mind and his vision of the sacred, so he always communicates a sense of freshness and directness although the essence of his message remained unchanged over the years. When he addressed large audiences, people felt that Krishnamurti was talking to each of them personally, addressing his or her particular problem.
In his private interviews, he was a compassionate teacher, listening attentively to the man or woman who came to him in sorrow, and encouraging them to heal themselves through their own understanding. Religious scholars found that his words threw new light on traditional concepts.
Krishnamurti took on the challenge of modern scientists and psychologists and went with them step by step, discussed their theories and sometimes enabled them to discern the limitations of those theories. Krishnamurti left a large body of literature in the form of public talks, writings, discussions with teachers and students, with scientists and religious figures, conversations with individuals, television and radio interviews, and letters.
The man who is completely alone in this way is innocent and it is this innocency that frees the mind from sorrow. By asking us to be free from the already known, he is proposing to bring about a revolution in this world in order to make it a better place to live in. We have reduced the world to its present state of chaos by our self-centered activity, by our prejudices, our hatreds, our nationalism, and when we say we cannot do anything about it, we are accepting disorder in ourselves as inevitable.
We have splintered the world into fragments and if we ourselves are broken, fragmented, our relationship with the world will also be broken.
But if, when we act, we act totally, then our relationship with the world undergoes a tremendous revolution. But what he says, though is very appealing, it nonetheless seems to be unattainable. Now the question which arises is — Can there be anything which is not known?
Haven't we, at some times, found ourselves thinking in contradiction to what has been exposed to us in this world?
Haven't philosophers or even common people, have thought and expressed it perhaps in different ways? And though this question did arise but I cannot deny that the work did really influence me tremendously. For he also says: If I were foolish enough to give you a system and if you were foolish enough to follow it, you would merely be copying, imitating, conforming, accepting, and when you do that you have set up in yourself the authority of another and hence there is conflict between you and that authority.
You feel you must do such and such a thing because you have been told to do it and yet you are incapable of doing it. You have your own particular inclinations, tendencies and pressures which conflict with the system you think you ought to follow and therefore there is a contradiction.
So you will lead a double life between the ideology of the system and the actuality of your daily existence. Following the dissolution, prominent Theosophists turned against Krishnamurti, including Leadbeater who is said to have stated, "the Coming had gone wrong. The business and organizational aspects of the SPT were administered chiefly by D. Rajagopal, as Krishnamurti devoted his time to speaking and meditation.
The Rajagopals' marriage was not a happy one, and the two became physically estranged after the birth of their daughter, Radha. According to Radha Rajagopal Sloss, the long affair between Krishnamurti and Rosalind began in and it endured for about twenty-five years. In he met Aldous Huxley.
They held common concerns about the imminent conflict in Europe which they viewed as the outcome of the pernicious influence of nationalism. During this time he lived and worked at Arya Vihara, which during the war operated as a largely self-sustaining farm, with its surplus goods donated for relief efforts in Europe. I think it was a kind of everything held in; and when I left Ojai it all burst.
The sisters also attended to Krishnamurti throughout a recurrence of the "process" in Ootacamund. In his meetings with Nehru Krishnamurti elaborated at length on the teachings, saying in one instance, "Understanding of the self only arises in relationship, in watching yourself in relationship to people, ideas, and things; to trees, the earth, and the world around you and within you.
Relationship is the mirror in which the self is revealed. Without self-knowledge there is no basis for right thought and action. Read every word, every phrase, every paragraph of the mind, as it operates through thought. In the early s, he made the acquaintance of physicist David Bohm , whose philosophical and scientific concerns regarding the essence of the physical world, and the psychological and sociological state of mankind, found parallels in Krishnamurti's philosophy.

The two men soon became close friends and started a common inquiry, in the form of personal dialogues—and occasionally in group discussions with other participants—that continued, periodically, over nearly two decades. Nevertheless, Krishnamurti met and held discussions with physicists Fritjof Capra and E.
George Sudarshan , biologist Rupert Sheldrake , psychiatrist David Shainberg, as well as psychotherapists representing various theoretical orientations.
Jayakar considers his message in meetings with Indira Gandhi as a possible influence in the lifting of certain emergency measures Gandhi had imposed during periods of political turmoil. Rajagopal to court to recover donated property and funds as well as publication rights for his works, manuscripts, and personal correspondence, that were in Rajagopal's possession.
Much property and materials were returned to Krishnamurti during his lifetime; the parties to this case finally settled all other matters in , shortly after his death.
These last talks included the fundamental questions he had been asking through the years, as well as newer concerns about advances in science and technology, and their effect on humankind.
Krishnamurti had commented to friends that he did not wish to invite death, but was not sure how long his body would last he had already lost considerable weight , and once he could no longer talk, he would have "no further purpose". In his final talk, on 4 January , in Madras, he again invited the audience to examine with him the nature of inquiry , the effect of technology, the nature of life and meditation, and the nature of creation.
He did not want anybody to pose as an interpreter of the teaching. He added that the "supreme intelligence" operating in his body would be gone with his death, again implying the impossibility of successors.
However, he stated that people could perhaps get into touch with that somewhat "if they live the teachings". His remains were cremated. The announcement of KFT Krishnamurti Foundation Trust refers to the course of his health condition until the moment of death.
The first signs came almost nine months before his death, when he felt very tired. In October he went from England Brockwood Park School to India and after that he suffered from exhaustion, fevers, and lost weight. Krishnamurti decided to go back to Ojai 10 January after his last talks in Madras , which necessitated a hour flight.
Once he arrived at Ojai he underwent medical tests that revealed he was suffering from pancreatic cancer.
The cancer was untreatable, either surgically or otherwise, so Krishnamurti decided to go back to his home at Ojai, where he spent his last days. Friends and professionals nursed him.
His mind was clear until the very last.
Krishnamurti died on 17 February , at ten minutes past midnight, California time.

And with that a living too. His remains were cremated. There was an element of subservience, obedience. He stood alone.
The First And The Last Freedom.
Leadbeater had noticed Krishnamurti on the Society's beach on the Adyar river, and was amazed by the "most wonderful aura he had ever seen, without a particle of selfishness in it.
In , he renounced the role that he was expected to play, dissolved the Order, and returned all the money and property that had been donated for this work.
You have to figure it out on your own.
