Star in the east : Krishnamurti, the invention of a Messiah by Roland Vernon( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of Krishnamurti, hailed early in life as the messiah for the twentieth century, is told here in the light of a century of changing spiritual attitudes. It is a tale of mysticism, sexual scandals, religious fervour and chicanery, out of which emerged one of the most influential thinkers of modern times." "His career spanned six decades in which he founded seven schools, published fifty books and gave thousands of talks around the world. Although he rejected any claims to being a messiah (or even a guru), and subsequently proved himself as human as any in his relationships, loves and weaknesses, he continued until his death in 1986 to fulfil the role of a world teacher. With its roots in Victorian Britain and the birth of millennial dreams of a new golden era, Krishnamurti's story encompasses the overthrow of an empire in India, the beginnings of socialism, and the arrival of Eastern mysticism in the west."--Jacket
