Krishnamurti on the Masters(CD)


*Select an option

J. Krishnamurti was a young boy when his first book At the Feet of the Master was published in 1910. In the foreword to that little book he stated: “These are not my words; they are the words of the Master who taught me.” Through most of his later adult life, however, Krishnamurti publicly refrained from any mention of Masters or Adepts and often seemed to deride the very notion of Masters with scathing attacks on the tendency of people to follow authorities in the psychological-spiritual field. But Aryel Sanat, the author of The Inner Life of Krishnamurti says that Krishnamurti apparently had almost daily communion until the end of his life with the Masters who were thought to have been responsible for the founding of the Theosophical Society. The speaker attempts to reconcile this apparent contradiction by offering a variety of evidence such as written statements found in Krishnamurti’s personal journals, anecdotal stories from his closest friends, rare and documented public statements supporting or implying the existence of Masters, and, finally, an extraordinary deathbed statement recorded in 1986 a few days before he died, in which he emphatically stated that for some 70 years he had been an “instrument” for a supreme Intelligence. In this program, Aryel Sanat tells the story of how Krishnamurti was discovered by the clairvoyant C. W. Leadbeater, how the young boy was then educated in England, further describing his meditative practices during the 1920s as well as some of the strange and weird phenomena that accompanied his initiatory experiences during the 1920s and 30s. 2000. 69 minutes.
