List of works about Jiddu Krishnamurti

Jiddu Krishnamurti or J. Krishnamurti (12 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was a writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual issues. His subject matter included psychological revolution, the nature of the mind, meditation, human relationships, and bringing about positive social change. Works about his life and his philosophy first appeared in the early-20th-century; as of 2011 related works have continued appearing in several subject areas, and in a variety of formats and media.


About the worksEdit

Subject biographyEdit

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 came to be promoted by the leadership of the Society as the so-called World Teacher, a new messiah. In 1929 he disavowed this role and dissolved the worldwide organization (the Order of the Star) formed to support it. He severed his ties to Theosophy and the Theosophical Society, and declared independence from all religious, philosophical, and cultural disciplines and practices.

He spent the rest of his life presenting a uniquely expressed philosophy of life around the world, asserting that only unflinching self-inquiry can lead to genuine discovery and to resolution of all personal and social conflict. Until his death in 1986 he was constantly stressing the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being, while positing that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social.

Timeline and availabilityEdit

Works and news items about Krishnamurti started appearing in the beginning of the 20th century, shortly after his "discovery" as a possible new Messiah. The extraordinary circumstances surrounding young Krishnamurti, and the related proclamations of Theosophical leaders, resulted in intense scrutiny and publicity throughout his "messianic" period. Interest was renewed and amplified by his later repudiation of the so-called World Teacher Project and of Theosophy.[n 1] During his middle years publicity and interest lessened, but did not disappear; by the late 1960s he was firmly reestablished in the public stage, with a corresponding increase in the number of works and news items about him.

Since his death in 1986 books, monographs, research papers in various disciplines, news items etc., in print and other media, have continued to appear, examining various aspects of Krishnamurti and his message.[n 2]

Krishnamurti has additionally been the subject of, or a claimed source of inspiration in, the works of artists in diverse fields (see section Artistic depictions below). They have included playwrights[n 3] and actors,[n 4] musicians, novelists, and at least one choreographer.[n 5]

As of 31 December 2010, according to one source, Krishnamurti-related materials numbered "2,412 works in 4,580 publications in 53 languages and 46,822 library holdings".[n 6]

  10. ^ An early Theosophical work was The Lives of Alcyone (Besant & Leadbeater 2003). Originally published 1924 in two volumes, this was presented as an occult biography of Krishnamurti's reputed past lives. Alcyone was the pseudonym assigned to Krishnamurti in 1910 by his then mentor, influential Theosophist Charles Webster Leadbeater, who had determined Krishnamurti was likely to be the "vehicle" for the so-called Maitreya or World Teacher, a messianic entity. This book by Leadbeater and Besant, then President of the Theosophical Society, describes forty-eight purported reincarnations of Krishnamurti. Alcyone's reported birth-years for these lives ranged from around 70,000 BC to 624 AD (Besant & Leadbeater & 2003-1, "[Table:] Forty-Eight Lives of Alcyone", p. 16); M. Lutyens 1975a, pp. 23–24. Krishnamurti's past lives were reputedly recorded via clairvoyant investigations by Leadbeater, who was highly respected for his occult knowledge and abilities by Theosophists. The record of "extraordinary" past lives was offered in support of the authors' claims regarding Krishnamurti's likely messianic status. Most of the material in The Lives of Alcyone was reprinted from an earlier work, 1913's Man: How, Whence, and Whither; a record of clairvoyant investigation (OCLC 871602), also by Besant and Leadbeater, and had been additionally published in serial form in Theosophical journals. The majority of contemporary Theosophists believed the material regarding "Alcyone's lives" to be genuine and important. However it also added to (or started) disputes within Theosophical circles, and has for various reasons been considered controversial inside and outside Theosophy. Among the more obvious reasons: the work's doctrinal nature, and Krishnamurti's later, strongly negative stance towards such matters. (There is no indication that Krishnamurti was involved or cooperated in any way in the production of works about Alcyone's "lives"). Other reasons for the work's controversial nature involve often elaborate interpretations and criticisms of its occult or esoteric provenance or accuracy, by a variety of warring commentators. In the 1960s some Theosophists advanced the view that the findings of Leadbeater's related clairvoyant investigations were the result of "self-projection" (Wood 1964); like other Krishnamurti-related issues, "the lives of Alcyone" have continued, as of 2011 to occasionally be the subject of discussion among theosophists and researchers of Theosophy (Alpheus 2001).

Speaking at a meeting of the trustees of the Krishnamurti Foundations in 1976, Krishnamurti had in effect asked his associates to communicate – especially after his death – the impression that his presence and teachings had had on their lives: "If people come here and ask, 'What was it like to live with this man?' would you be able to convey it to them?"; Chandmal 1985, p. 7; Hay, Peter (1989).

No interpreters are necessary, for each person should observe directly his own activities, not according to any theory or authority. Unfortunately interpreters have sprung up, a fact for which we are in no way responsible. In recent years several people have asserted they are my successors and that they have been specially chosen by me to disseminate the teachings. I have said, and I again repeat, that there are no representatives of Krishnamurti personally or of his teachings during or after his lifetime. I am very sorry that this has to be said again." (M.

According to Mary Lutyens, Krishnamurti did not allow photographs of him to be taken for over 30 years, from the early 1930s to the late 1960s, "hence the lack of pictures of him in middle age". [She states that he relented in the late 1960s, allowing freelance photographer Mark Edwards to photograph him in 1968. Photographer weblink retrieved 2011-01-20. Edwards eventually shot several portraits of Krishnamurti, some of which illustrate covers of Krishnamurti books. He also covered Krishnamurti gatherings, and undertook various assignments for the Krishnamurti Foundations. See for example J. Krishnamurti 2000. Photobook based on Krishnamurti quotations about nature and the environment with accompanying nature photography from various photographers]; Williams 2004, p. 552 [in "Notes": no. 53]. However private photographs of Krishnamurti in middle-age have been published in Sloss 1991; photographs of him from that era also exist in The Huntington Library, San Marino, California; Coleman 1971, pp. 81, 90, 98. "[Krishnamurti c. 1969] told me he never allowed photographs if he could help it because he was afraid some people might misuse them. There were those who wished to deify him and pictures would give them a means of doing so. The thought horrified him." Coleman, who originally met Krishnamurti in 1958, asked him to allow a photograph as illustration for his book, and added, "He didn't like the idea at all but in the end gave in under pressure."
