Biography: J. Krishnamurti

Jiddu Krishnamurti was an unconventional thinker with a non-conformist philosophy of life which had profound moral and spiritual implications. He denounced authority of every kind whether of a person, book, or tradition, because according to him, no authority in any form can lead one to encounter truth or reality. He also deprecated institutionalized or organized religion for the same reason. A Messiah to many, he was an unsettle of faiths to many others.
