Born on 11th May 1895, in a religious middle class family in the rural town of Madanapalle in South India, the famous Indian saint, Jiddu Krishnamurti got his education in England. The leaders of the Theosophical Society, like Mrs. Annie Besant and Bishop Lead Beaten, discovered his vast talent during his youth and those leaders also did proclaim that he was going to become the world teacher, for whom the Theosophists were waiting for.
J. Krishnamurti experienced a lot of certain mystical experiences through out his entire life and those experiences brought about a huge and deep transformation in him. The experiences also gave him a new vision of life and in his later life; he disconnected himself from all types of organized religions and ideologies. He decided to embark on his own solitary mission and he always preferred to meet and talk to the common people, not as a Guru but as a friend.
J. Krishnamurti had the credit of giving an entirely new meaning and content to religion and he did so by pointing to a way of life that excelled all the organized religions. He gave the declaration that his only concern was to set the human beings absolutely and unconditionally free and he also tried to liberate man from his deep conditioning of sorrow, fear, violence and selfishness. The holy life of J. Krishnamurti ended in the year 1986.
