One of the most extraordinary lives ever imagined was actually lived over most of last century by Jiddu Krishnamurti, a poor, dreamy South Indian boy who was adopted by the English aristocracy and became the darling of California spiritual seekers.The enigma of his life is explored and exposed-from the death of his mother when he was young to the adulation he received as a gurufigure, from abject poverty to luxurious comfort; from cultish repression to absolute freedom.JIDDU KRISHNAMURTI also known as G Krishnamurthi, as his father's name was Geddu, Alcyone, Krishna and K). He is discovered and promoted as the next World Teacher by the Theosophical Society (TS) in 1909. He breaks away from the constraints of the Society in 1929 at the age of 34, declaring Truth is a Pathless Land.
