Jiddu Krishnamurti: World Philosopher (1895-1986) - His Life and Thoughts
Jiddu Krishnamurti: World Philosopher (1895-1986) - His Life and Thoughts
Description
From the Jacket:

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.

About the Author:

C.V. Williams began her career as a journalist before moving on to write biography. This life study of J. Krishnamurti, was undertaken as part of doctoral research at the University of Technology, Sydney. Her third biographical work, it follows publication of a biography of Christina Stead, and a book of interviews about fatherhood in Australia. Dr. Williams lives in Sydney where she teaches media studies and creative writing.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
