This volume presents an eyewitness account of the practical and everyday relations of the Mark Lee with Krishnamurti (1895–1986) who was a prolific author as well as a renowned and respected educator, and speaker. Such relations reveal warmth and closeness, leading to a deep understanding of some of the unexplained mysteries surrounding the man and his teachings.

Mark Lee was first introduced to Krishnamurti’s teachings as a teenager in 1955 and to Krishnamurti himself in 1965. For the next 45 years he worked in the Krishnamurti foundations as teacher, principal, director, and trustee in succession. It was Krishnamurti’s compelling and engaging admonition to ‘be a light unto yourself’ that kept Lee associated with the work of the foundations — a serious challenge — that called for inner discipline, austerity in thinking and living, and rigorous self-awareness. Krishnamurti was associated with several schools in India, England, and the USA from the late 1920s onwards. Five nonprofit foundations were established by him and continue to preserve and disseminate his teachings globally.

For students of Krishnamurti’s teachings, Lee’s experiences can serve an informative and useful source of further learning and education.

Henri Methorst was an early publisher of Krishnamurti's works in Europe, and a translator of his talks and writing for many years. Here he provides both a memoir of time with Krishnamurti and the people and organizations around Krishnamurti, and observations on what makes Krishnamurti's message radical.

"Krishnamurti offers no easy solutions. His insights are not comfortable. He does, however, go immediately to the heart of the matter. By explaining the nature of thought and its relationship to time and fear, he offers a vision of liberation in its purest form."

For readers interested in a first-hand account adding to the history of Krishnamurti's work and publications, and personal reflections on the radical nature of Krishnamurti's message.

The collected writings, talks and classroom discussions of Allan W. Anderson on the teachings of J. Krishnamurti. Krishnamurti: 100 Years is an illustrated biography that includes recollections from many people whose lives were transformed by this remarkable teacher.

For more than two decades, renowned theoretical physicist David Bohm engaged in a close collaboration with psychological philosopher J. Krishnamurti. The two men participated together in 144 recorded dialogues and many unrecorded conversations, and the transcripts of their discussions appear in several published volumes. Their mutual interests encompassed the whole of human consciousness, its nature and structure, and the sources of illusion and conflict in the individual and in society. An Uncommon Collaboration: David Bohm and J. Krishnamurti describes the course of their relationship from beginning to end, including the substance of their dialogues as well as the uneven quality of their personal interactions. Author David Edmund Moody worked with both men for more than a decade, and his observations of them inform and supplement his description of their relationship.

Bohm’s background as a physicist was characterized by his close associations with Oppenheimer and Einstein, his revolutionary contributions to the foundations of quantum mechanics, and his clash with the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities, an event which ultimately deprived him of his American citizenship. Krishnamurti’s background was notable for his break with the Theosophical Society, which had nurtured him as a youth and hailed him as the World Teacher. He developed his own independent philosophy, one which offered penetrating insights into the human condition and emphasized freedom from all authority in psychological and religious matters.

An Uncommon Collaboration: David Bohm and J. Krishnamurti describes the life stories of the two men individually as well as the nature and quality of their relationship. The book concludes with a critical assessment of each man’s contribution to the work they were engaged in, their mutual accomplishments, and the issues that remain unresolved. Moody’s work with Bohm featured several recorded dialogues that examined Bohm’s views on Krishnamurti’s philosophy and his personality. Complete transcripts of these conversations provide a rich, illuminating supplement to the text.
