Jiddu Krishnamurti or J. Krishnamurti, (12 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was a writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual issues including psychological revolution, the nature of the mind, meditation, human relationships, and bringing about positive social change. He came to early prominence thanks to claims, made on his behalf, that he was to be a Messiah. As a young man he repudiated these claims and declared himself unbound by any tradition or philosophy. He spent the rest of his life presenting a uniquely expressed philosophy of life around the world in talks, discussions, and writings.

About the works
Jiddu Krishnamurti was born 1895 in the town of Madanapalle in then-colonial India, to a family of middle class Telugu Brahmins. His father was associated with the Theosophical Society, and in the early part of the 20th century young Krishnamurti was promoted by the Adyar, India based leadership of the Society as the so-called World Teacher, a new messiah. However in 1929 he disavowed this role, dissolved the worldwide organization (the Order of the Star) formed to support it, and shortly afterwards severed his ties to Theosophy and the Theosophical Society.
Denouncing the concept of saviors, spiritual leaders, and any other intermediaries to reality, Krishnamurti stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being. He posited that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social. He urged people to directly discover the underlying causes of the problems facing individuals and society, and stated that such discovery is the natural outcome of absolute and unconditional psychological freedom, which he declared as being within everyone's reach.
Krishnamurti set out to work towards this goal of universal psychological freedom, and until his death in 1986 traveled the world as an independent speaker, presenting his message to large and small groups and in discussion with interested individuals; a large number of these talks and discussions have been published in various formats and media. He also articulated his message in writing, authoring several books and other works.
Distribution and availability
A number of successive non-profit institutions have been organized in order to preserve and disseminate Krishnamurti's work, originally by his Theosophist patrons, later by Krishnamurti and contemporary associates. As of 2010[update], the latest incarnations of the official Krishnamurti-related entities are the Krishnamurti Foundations, organized in the late 1960s to early 1970s.[a 1] Among other activities, the Foundations have continued, after his death, to publish new titles consisting of Krishnamurti's talks and writings, or new editions of older titles, in a variety of formats and media; a notable effort is the freely available online resource Jiddu Krishnamurti Online.
As of 31 December 2010[update], according to one source, Krishnamurti-related materials numbered "2,412 works in 4,580 publications in 53 languages and 46,822 library holdings",[a 2] while a trade concern stated, "His teachings of more than 20,000,000 words are published in more than 75 books, 700 audiocassettes, and 1200 videocassettes. Thus far, over 4,000,000 copies of books have been sold in twenty-two languages."[a 3] Around the same time, Krishnamurti works in a variety of media were widely available through online and traditional retailers worldwide, in several different formats.[a 4]

Works in print
Krishnamurti on Krishnamurti
Krishnamurti rarely wrote (or spoke in public) about himself. In the following, he again usually refers to himself in third-person as noted above. However these works, being published diaries, are largely autobiographical.
- Krishnamurti's Notebook (1976). Published journal that Krishnamurti kept between June 1961 and March 1962. With the publication of this book, the general public had access to first-hand descriptions of the process, a strange condition that started in the 1920s and intermittently affected Krishnamurti throughout his life. Also contains numerous (explicit and implicit) references to a state of consciousness Krishnamurti often called the otherness, among other designations.[b 1]
- Krishnamurti's Journal (1982). A personal journal, that he started in 1973 and kept intermittently until 1975.
- Krishnamurti to Himself: His Last Journal (1987). Transcribed from audiotape recordings made at his home in the Ojai Valley between February 1983 and March 1984. Mary Lutyens, editor. M. Lutyens edited several of his books.
- At the Feet of the Master (1910). The author of this book may also be listed or co-listed (in different editions) as Alcyone, a pseudonym of Krishnamurti. However the identity of the author of works originally listed as authored by so-called Alcyone has been the subject of debate. Regardless of the extent of Krishnamurti's actual involvement, these works are considered Theosophical literature.[a 5]

Works on education
Proper education was a major, lifelong concern of Krishnamurti. He and his associates established a number of schools during his lifetime,[b 19] in an effort to apply his holistic educational philosophy.[b 20] Although he was not involved in the daily running of the schools, Krishnamurti visited often, engaging teachers and students in talks and discussions.

- JKO [a]. Foundations were organized in the United Kingdom, the United States, India, and Argentina (eventually relocated to Spain. As of 31 December 2010[update]). Another institution was later organized in Canada; KFA 1969. Krishnamurti Foundation of America mission statement, similar in all Foundation charters. Copyright for the great majority of Krishnamurti's work is held by the Foundations individually or in joint ventures such as K Publications; Williams 2004, pp. 196–197, 528–529 [in "Notes": no. 50]. However, certain editions of early works are in the public domain within several jurisdictions. Notable among these are several editions of At the feet of the Master; University of California Libraries 2008, § "Selected metadata". "Evidence reported by Internet Archive biblio tool for item atfeetofmaster00krisrich on March 7, 2008: no visible notice of copyright; stated date is 1911." Other early works and correspondence may be copyright of the Theosophical Society Adyar. The matters of ownership and administration of intellectual property rights for Krishnamurti's work (and of other assets) became entangled in disputes that started in the 1960s, and in long-running litigation that formally begun in 1971. Most of the copyright and other legal matters were resolved prior to Krishnamurti's death in 1986, while the remainders were settled shortly after he died. Per the legal settlements, certain Krishnamurti-related materials were deemed property of his erstwhile close friend, associate, and business manager D. Rajagopal or of entities affiliated with him. Other material remained part of the library collections in the Huntington Library at San Marino, California, where it had been donated by D. Rajagopal in the 1960s and 1970s; Lilliefelt 1995. Related report by a Krishnamurti Foundation trustee. [As far as can be ascertained the pertinent litigation is described in a neutral manner in this report].
- WorldCat Identities c. 2010; VIAF 2011, § "Publication Statistics: Identifiers". As of April 2011[update], the Virtual International Authority File (VIAF) in its entry about Krishnamurti had identified "515 unique ISBNs" worldwide. At the time, Krishnamurti was variously labeled in library, bibliographical, reference, and trade sources as an "Eastern philosopher", "Theosophist", "Eastern mystic" (or just "Mystic"), "Guru", "Spiritual" (or "Religious") "leader", "teacher" or "philosopher", etc. His works were classified accordingly; it was not unusual for the same work to be found under the categories "Mysticism", "Psychology", "Hinduism", "Eastern religions", "Philosophy", "Education", or "Self-help", sometimes in the listings of the same source. Since the publication of the earliest works and as of 2011[update] his works have been classified either by his given name (Krishnamurti) or by his family name (Jiddu, or in a few cases variations such as Jeddu, usually pre-1933); in general, he was often referred to by the given name only.
- Books in Print c. 2011.
- For example, a "basic search" undertaken 2010-11-22 for "Krishnamurti J" in the US division of Amazon.com, returned over 2,000 results including dozens of book titles in print, e-book and audiobook format, but also items such as reproductions of the photograph that illustrates this page. The majority of the results were electronically downloadable MP3-formatted renditions of his public talks and discussions. [amazon.com website searched and browsed through a US-based computer utilizing a US-based Internet service provider].
- Alcyone 1910. The author of this first, and of several other early works was listed as Alcyone, a pseudonym assigned to Krishnamurti by Charles Webster Leadbeater. [In later editions of early works "Jiddu Krishnamurti" may be co-listed, or solely listed, as author]; M. Lutyens 1975, p. 44; Williams 2004, pp. 24–29 and related notes 93–100 in pp. 476–478 [in "Notes"]. There has been considerable skepticism among Krishnamurti's biographers and others about Krishnamurti's true role in the production of works originally published as authored or co-authored by so-called Alcyone; M. Lutyens 1975, "Chapter 3: The Discovery" pp. 20–28. Leadbeater, an influential Theosophist, was the person who "discovered" Krishnamurti as the possible "vehicle" for the new Messiah, and was in charge of preparing him for his "mission".
Section: Listing of works
- [Emphasis added]. Life-altering experiences (in Jiddu Krishnamurti).
- Williams 2004, p. 476 [in "Notes": no. 93].

Link-specific content verified against original at New York Public Library Main Branch: "Herald of the star". Classic Catalog (New York Public Library). YBEA (Herald of the star) [call no.] Retrieved 2011-01-26]; M. Lutyens 1975, p. 134. M. Lutyens states the subject of this talk as being "Theosophy and Internationalism". It begins, "As it is December 28th, you are all probably expecting something miraculous, ..." Krishnamurti is referring to an older incident in this quote which reputedly happened on the same date and place ten years earlier, at a Theosophical function Krishnamurti was officiating (M. Lutyens 1975, pp. 54–55).
- M. Lutyens 1975, pp. 239, 298 [in "Chronology": (part of entry for) January 1923]. "His first poem published in Herald."; Williams 2004, p. 508 [in "Notes": no. 58].
- J. Krishnamurti 1930. "The true enemy of freedom is dead tradition; living at second hand; the enslavement of the life to-day to the worn-out formulas of a past age. ... This is the true Indian problem. ... This is a hard lesson and, perhaps, an unwelcome one."
- J. Krishnamurti 1929c.
- The volumes consist of offprints from Chetana magazine (Mumbai, India: Chetana Publishing). These originally appeared in Chetana in the 1960s and early 1970s, and were collected in seven volumes, published between 1969 and 1972. The whole series was reissued in 1978.
- L.L.W. (1943). "Foreword". In (author) J. Krishnamurti 1943. p. [6 (not numbered)]. "[Krishnamurti] has revealed himself as a provocative thinker, with all the moral bravery necessary to promulgate unpopular opinions."; Masey 1943. Review (positive).
- Vernon 2001, p. 209.
- Methorst 2003, "Chapter 12". D. Rajagopal ("Raja", 1900–1993), had moved in Krishnamurti's circle since early youth. After the death of Krishnamurti's brother Nitya in 1925, he replaced him as Krishnamurti's frequent travel companion and aide, and as official of the SPT. Following the dissolution of the Order of the Star, and until the late 1960s, he served as the head or co-head of a number of successive corporations and trusts, chartered to publish Krishnamurti's talks, discussions and other writings, and also to organize and finance his itinerary.
- McGhee 2000, § "Think on These Things" pp. 1035–1038. Comprehensive review (positive).
- Zaehner 1970. The work was reviewed by Robert Charles Zaehner in The Times Literary Supplement, in juxtaposition with The Politics of Ecstasy, a contemporary work by Timothy Leary (London: MacGibbon & Kee 1970 ed., ISBN 978-0-261-63175-5). Zaehner is generally approving of Krishnamurti, though he is not overwhelmed by his message; he is uniformly negative towards Leary and his book, using Krishnamurti – in character and selected quotes – as examples to support his opinion.
- Williams 2004, p. 386.
- Keel 1975. The work received an unusual mini-review in a journal on general semantics. The reviewer "rearranged Krishnamurti's words into something that is neither poem nor review: a name pops up – 'book notery.'" [Based on the Krishnamurti statement, "Seeing destroys all barriers."]
- McGhee 2000, pp. 1034–1035.
- Jayakar 1986, pp. 282–283.
- Zimbalist, Mary (1988). "Foreword". In (author) J. Krishnamurti 1988b, p. 7. Close Krishnamurti associate and aide Mary Zimbalist wrote that the hall was "filled with a varied, seriously-interested audience and as Krishnamurti spoke there seemed an intangible response, a quality in which the listeners joined in his communication."; M. Lutyens 2003b, "Chapter 8: First Talks in Washington" pp. 90–100; Williams 2004, p. 459.
- J. Krishnamurti 1971b.
- JKO [b]; McGhee 2000, p. 1034. "Krishnamurti ... came to realize that all problems can be reduced – in origin, formulation, and resolution – to the problem of education."
- Giddu 1998, p. 64. Krishnamurti enumerated the following as his educational aims: 1. Global outlook – A vision of the whole as distinct from the part; there should never be a sectarian outlook, but always a holistic outlook free from all prejudice. 2. Concern for humanity and the environment – Humanity is part of nature, and if nature is not cared for, it will boomerang on humankind. Only the right education, and deep affection between people everywhere, will resolve our many problems including the environmental challenges. 3. Religious spirit, which includes the scientific temper – The religious mind is alone, not lonely. It is in communion with people and nature. [Emphasis added. Krishnamurti's enumeration non-verbatim, edited for brevity. G. Narayan was Krishnamurti's nephew and was involved in his educational projects for many years].
- M. Lutyens 2003c, p. 156. The letters were dictated by Krishnamurti, starting in 1978.
- Williams 2004, p. 314; Sloss 1993, p. 236. According to Sloss, the book was edited (anonymously) by D. Rajagopal; Rogers 1971. Almost two decades after its original publication, the work received a comprehensive review in an academic journal. "A decade before John Holt and Herbert Kohl, a relatively obscure Indian philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti, was talking about 'why children fail' and 'the open classroom.'"
- Bagby 1975. Review. Bagby thinks readers will find these discussions "hard going", but states that the book offers "glimpses of the warm humanity which tempers the austerity of Krishnamurti's mind."
- Grohe 1991, "[Chapter 3 (not numbered):] Ojai".
- Journal of the Krishnamurti Schools.
- J. Krishnamurti 1981b.
- Jayakar 1986, p. 492. On his discussions with associates: "Some of the most intense insights have been revealed at these sessions."; Alev 1997. Interview with David Bohm biographer F. David Peat. "With Krishnamurti the dialogues they had went very, very deep."
- Peat 1997, pp. 192–197, 226–231; "Chapter 15: Dialogue and Disorder" pp. 282–302; "Afterword" pp. 323–330. According to Peat, the editing into book form of some of these discussions, brought "tensions" regarding Bohm "to a head", among some Krishnamurti associates who, in Peat's view, "resented their closeness".
- M. Lutyens 2003b, p. 18. These discussions were edited anonymously into book form by Mary Cadogan, a long-time Krishnamurti associate in England.
- Jayakar 1986, p. xi [in "Preface"].
- M. Lutyens 2003c, p. 176. "K [Krishnamurti] was stimulated by these discussions in India. ... It was also the Indian way to question everything that was said. This K thoroughly approved of, since faith, unquestioningly accepting the words of another, was to him an insurmountable barrier to the discovery of truth through self-understanding." However she also calls some of the arguments in these discussions as overly intellectual, in her opinion excluding the "intuitive leaps" required for understanding; Jayakar 1986 contains numerous references to these discussions in India, including detailed presentations of several, and summations of others.

- M. Lutyens 2003a, pp. 204–205. "I had wanted a short statement but realized that as K [Krishnamurti] had said himself, his teaching could not be put in a few words." The statement was later minimally edited by him. This source includes the original draft; the reference weblink reflects the edits.
