Who was Krishnamurti? The Theosophists, basing themselves upon certain ancient India calculations os astronomical cycles, believed a new major spiritual teacher to be due, who would set the keynote of the new age, and that it was their job to find him, care for him until his maturity and prepare the way for him. In Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986), spotted paddling off the beach near their headquarters in Adyar, they believed they had found him. Annie Besant (1847 - 1933) assumed his legal guardianship, and an Order was created for him to head. But on reaching maturity he dissolved the Order and the words he spoke were unlike those they expected to hear. Had he renounced his mission, or had they chosen the wrong boy, or was it a case of new wine bursting old bottles? New people came to hear him. The Dalai Lama, who does not commonly visit, visited Krishnamurti, and was said to ask, 'Sir what do you believe?' He does not tell us what answer he received , but says he found Krishnamurti 'a Nagarjuna'. What did he mean?

From the Chapter 'The Last Goodbye' (p. 272):

The last tape of Krishnamurti dated 7 Feb. 1986:

" . . . for seventy years that super-energy - no - that immense energy, immense intelligence, has been using this body. I don't think people realise what tremendous energy and intelligence went through this body - there's a twelve cylinder energy . . . and now the body can't stand any more. Nobody, unless the body has been prepared, very carefully protected . . . can understand what went through this body. Nobody. Don't anybody pretend. Nobody, I repeat this: nobody amongst us or the public know what went on. I know they don't. And now, after seventy years, it has come to an end. Not that intelligence and energy . . . it's somewhere here, every day and especially at night . . .You won't find another body like this, or that supreme intelligence operating in a body for many hundred years. You won't see it again. When he goes, it goes.

There is no consciousness left behind of that consciousness, or that state. They'll all pretend or try to imagine they can get into touch with that. Perhaps they will somewhat if they live the teachings. But nobody had done it. Nobody. And so that's that. "
