Jiddu Krishnamurti was born in May 1895, in a small town in South India near Madras. As the eighth child of a Brahmin family, and a boy, he was by tradition called Krishnamurti in honor of Shri Krishna, a Hindu divinity born an eighth child.
His father, a civil servant, then moved to Madras with his four surviving sons. In 1911, the sixteen-year-old Krishnamurti, with his younger brother, was brought to England where he was privately educated. He began to speak along lines that broke with tradition in 1929, when he repudiated all connections with organized religions and ideology.

In this, one is constantly learning, and out of this learning comes insight into the overall or general nature of the process of thought.
On my path of discovery I stumbled upon Krishnamurti’s talks, and must admit, it took some time before I could begin to understand what I was listening to, and what I was reading. Your understanding depends on your current awareness. Krishnamurti’s talks can be obscure, and very much interconnected within all his talks. The challenge here, is to understand the whole, not just bits and pieces. I have spent many an hour on websites dedicated to Krishnamurti’s work.
I found one website that has taken a unique approach, which seems to be more along the lines of what Krishnamurti was trying to accomplish through his talks.
“Truth is a pathless land.” Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection.
"This site was never intended to be done for reward, monetary or otherwise. It is a sharing of understanding only. It was and is never seen as an "effort." If you love what you are doing there is no effort in it. If it brings about responses from visitors, which it has been doing, then this is all to the good." — The "writer", BeyondtheMind.net
"The dissolution of the illusory self can only come about through direct insight into the workings of the mind. For this insight to occur, the mind must be entirely still, free of its continual reactions. The mind itself, as it is, cannot bring about its own transformation." —The "writer", BeyondTheMind.net
