One of the most extraordinary lives ever imagined was actually lived over most of last century by Jiddu Krishnamurti, a poor, dreamy South Indian boy who was adopted by the English aristocracy and became the darling of California Spiritual seekers.
The enigma of his life is explored and exposed - from the death of his mother when he was young to the adulation he received as a guru figure, from abject poverty to luxurious comfort: from cultish repression to absolute freedom.
