With Krishnamurti’s death in 1986, aged 90, Mary Lutyens was able to complete her perceptive books on this extraordinary man. Only now has she been able, in this one-volume biography, to bring his life into true perspective. It is a brief but absorbing account of Krishnamurti’s life, and in it she seeks to understand his death (and Death itself) in terms of his own words on the subject.
The author claims no more than to introduce Krishnamurti’s teaching, but by studying his own explorations into its origin, she is able to give help to the reader who wishes to delve deeper, as many will. Krishnamurti emerges from this book as a phenomenal teacher.
