This is not something new!!!!

Krishnamurti gave the same message for over 60 years. He wanted all of us
to get first hand experience and understanding and there is no substitute
for them.

He wanted no one to rely upon any one, including himself, and felt that
everyone can do independent first hand investigation. Anyone who has read
Krishnamurti's writings and lectures will find this discussed many times
and anyone who has not read, if they take the time to do the research will
find it in many places.

Further regarding your claims about Krishnamurti pls send us some
quotes where Krishnamurti mentioned "reincarnation" using this word.
