<< About Krishnamurti. He is to be honored for his good work but he is not in
any way a reincarnation of HPB or of anything except his own honest self.
As I document in my book, K called himself "a telephone" (see, for instance,
the video KRISHNAMURTI: WITH A SILENT MIND, if you want to see him say
precisely that). In other words, ACCORDING TO KRISHNAMURTI, what he said as
a teacher did not come from him, but from another source, another dimension.
It is a fascinating FACT -- a fact, nevertheless -- that HPB also called
herself "a telephone," even though when she made the same analogy K was to
make a century later the telephone was, in the eyes of many, "just another
gadget," since it was not in wide use, & its future uncertain, like that of
so very many gadgets. In her letters to A.P. Sinnett, she speaks of "those
who mistook HPB of Russia, for the high Initiate of XXX whose telephone she
was at times" (Letter LXXII, p. 174).
In other words, whenever teaching, K was neither "HPB's reincarnation" nor
"his own honest self," as you say. But exactly like HPB, HE WAS A TELEPHONE.
That is what both he & HPB said about who gave the teaching. Again, this is
discussed in more detail in my book.
