There are two Krishnamurtis, who are/were philosophers. Please, donīt mix them up!

The older one is Jiddu Krishnamurti, who died around 1985 and whose talks I have twice
attended. There is a host of publications on/by and about him. He was brought up as the future
Buddha Maitreya by the Theosophists, but at the
age of 38 he rejected this claim, and set forth to develop a philosophy of his own. He became rather popular in 1950-1990.

The younger is U.G. Krishnamurti, who sounds like a cynic when speaking about spiritual matters. Some like his "down-to-earth" comments about spiritual life.
