Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) was an independent spiritual teacher writing many books such as Krishnamurti Reader: No. 1, You are the World, Commentaries on living;: First series, from the notebooks of J. Krishnamurti and many others.
Mary Lutyens (1908-1999) was a British author best known for her three-volume biography of Jiddu Krishnamurti; the other volumes in this series are Krishnamurti: The Years of Awakening and Krishnamurti: The Open Door. She wrote in the Foreword to this 1983 book, "This second volume of Krishnamurti's biography, which brings the story of his life up to 1980, like the first, has, like the first, been written at his suggestion and with his full co-operation”
She says, "Krishnamurti has often been asked about physical healing. He undoubtedly possesses a power of healing but has always played it down"
What K was talking about was awareness from moment to moment of all that was taking place inside oneself without any effort to direct or change it---a matter of pure observation, perception, which would result in change without effort."
Lutyens' sympathetic, yet detailed and critical biography is "must reading" for anyone wanting to know more about Krishnamurti.
