Krishnamurti was born in 1895 in India. He is regarded globally as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers in recent times. He explained with great precision the subtle workings of the human mind, and pointed to the need for bringing to our daily life a deeply meditative and spiritual quality. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society. He died in 1986.
