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.

Jiddu Krishnamurti lived from 1895 to 1986, and is regarded as one of the greatest philosophical and spiritual figures of the twentieth century. Krishnamurti claimed no allegiance to any caste, nationality or religion and was bound by no tradition. His purpose was to set humankind unconditionally free from the destructive limitations of conditioned mind. For nearly sixty years he traveled the world and spoke spontaneously to large audiences until the end of his life in 1986 at the age of ninety. He had no permanent home, but when not traveling, he often stayed in Ojai, California, Brockwood Park, England, and in Chennai, India. In his talks, he pointed out to people the need to transform themselves through self knowledge, by being aware of the subtleties of their thoughts and feelings in daily life, and how this movement can be observed through the mirror of relationship.
