Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) rose from humble beginnings to become a leading spiritual and philosophical thinker. His works continue to influence thousands of people around the world; Joseph Campbell, Alan Watts, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra have all been indebted to him. And yet he belonged to no religion, sect or country. Nor did he subscribe to any school of political or ideological thought. On the contrary, Krishnamurti maintained that these are the very factors that divide human beings and bring about conflict and war an approach that makes his teachings particularly appealing in our own times. The Flight of the Eagle is regarded as one of Krishnamurti s key works, grappling with themes such as freedom, change, peace, violence and finally the transcendental and the unknown.

About the Author

Born in poverty in India in 1895, Jiddu Krishnamurti rose to become a leading spiritual and philosophical teacher whose ideas continue to inspire millions around the world today. Whether discussing politics with Indira Gandhi, in dialogue with the physicist David Bohm, or debating with the likes of Rupert Sheldrake and Iris Murdoch, Krishnamurti engaged fully with the human condition. Joseph Campbell, Alan Watts, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra have all acknowledged their debt to his writings. In later life, Krishnamurti spoke at the United Nations and was awarded the 1984 UN Peace Medal. He died in 1986 at his home in Ojai, California.

Reviews

"One of the greatest thinkers of the age." -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama "In my own life, Krishnamurti influenced me profoundly and helped me personally break through the confines of my own self-imposed restrictions to my freedom." -- Deepak Chopra "Krishnamurti's words offer the intimate spirit of a truly remarkable presence: poetic, gracious, vast as the sky, and wonderfully wise" -- Jack Kornfield "I feel the meaning of Krishnamurti for our time is that one has to think for oneself and not be swayed by any outside religions or spiritual authorities." -- Van Morrison
