Description - The Life And Death Of Krishnamurti by Mary Lutyens

This book covers the story of Krishnamurti's life and philosophy. The author knew him in India, not long after the leaders of the Theosophists discovered him as a boy, believing him to be the vehicle for the coming Messiah. The story of his education and adjustment to the western world is explored, his later denial of his Messianic role and his emergence as a world teacher who attracted the attention of the United Nations and the most eminent in different fields such as Nehru, Dalai Lama, Bernard Shaw, Aldous Huxley, Mrs Gandhi, Iris Murdoch, David Bohm and Bernard Levin. The author has also written a biography of her father, the architect, Edwin Lutyens.
