9780747507208: Lives in the Shadow with J. Krishnamurti

For nearly half a century the charismatic, strikingly handsome spiritual teacher J.Krishnamurti gathered an enormous following throughout Europe, India, Australia and North America. From the age of eighteen he was the forerunner of the type of iconoclasm that would bring immediate fame to cult figures in the late 20th-century. Yet recent biographies have left large areas of his life in mystifying darkness. This, however, is no ordinary study of Krishnamurti, for it is written by one whose earliest memories are dominated by his presence as a doting second father - tolerant of pranks and pets, playful and diligent. For over two idyllic decades in their Ojai Californian haven, where Aldous Huxley and other pacifists found respite during the war years, "Krinsh", as young Radha called him, developed his philosophical message. He also placed himself at the centre of her parents', Rosalind and Rajagopal's , marriage. Yet no one at the time would have doubted the chaste public image of Krishnamurti. Only when the harmony of Ojai Fragmented into acrimony and litigation over other painful issues did it become inevitable that one day the historical record should be put straight. In spirit of tenderness, fairness, objective inquiry and no little remorse, the author traces the rise orf Krishnamurti from obscurity in India by selection of the Theosophical Society to be the vehicle of a new incarnation of their world teacher. How bonds of trust were breached and become clouded in confusion with a new wave of devoteeism lies at the heart of this extraordinary story. So does a portrait of intense romantic intimacy and the conundrum of Krishnamurti's own complex character.
