One Thousand Suns depicts the private person behind the world-renowned philosophical figure, Jiddu Krishnamurti. The phenomenon of this brilliant teacher is here revealed intimately and respectfully, through the eyes of Asit Chandmal, who for most of his life knew Krishnamurti as a close friend. Krishnamurti is seen in everyday activities—with friends, in his home and garden, walking, and contemplating. Chandmal also describes and depicts the reactions of crowds listening to Krishnamurti speak, the calm he elicited, and the reverence he evoked.
I knew about J. Krishnamurti, since from my 16 age. My monastic teacher, Anandamitreya was a friend of Krishnamurti and he was one of the organizers of Krishnamurti's Sri Lankan tour. With my teacher's influence, I am interested in Krishnamurti. I have read his books and I have listened to his recorded lectures. I have been to Vasanta Vihar in India and I wanted to go pine cottage, Ojai in CA. Ju 17 2023 I went there and I wanted to buy a book as a souvenir. So I selected " One thousand suns". I like those pictorial memories and the biography of Krishnamurti.
