Radha Burnier and John Algeo both have told people that Theosophy and
Krishnamurti's teaching are same. Unfortunately both of them are wrong. 
Krishnamurti himself called his teaching diametrically opposite of
Theosophy. Here is the reference.

(Ommen 29 Jul 1931) Krishnamurti said 
"Let us find out what you believe. I am afraid this will not be so
pleasant + What I say is
diametrically opposite to your beliefs + You [believe] that Truth lies
outside all this chaos. I say
Truth is found through all this alone + You [believe in] a series of
incarnations [to acquire] more
and more virtues + You set up an authority + You have created worship,
sects and creeds + Your
whole system is based on a desire to preserve your ego ... This is
what you believe in all its
forms, crude or subtle + You have metaphysics, philosophies, ideals +
Your beliefs, your craving
for continuance, your ideas of evolution, progress, paths, karma --
all these are diametrically
opposed to what I say. Please see the gravity of this. Do not try to
compromise these beliefs with
what I say. "
