Dear William,
Your message sounded impressive, but the biggest problem with
Krishnamurti's teaching is he is wrong at fundamental level. 
On these most important points he was wrong.

> What Krishnamurti Did do was to denounce the reliance on any
oganization, or outside persona 
> no matter who that person was or claimed to be. He taught that you
do not need organizations, you do not need Gurus, you do not need
Priests or intermediaries. Look to Ishvar Guru, the Atman within, this
is the Only Guru you need. 

Please consider the teachings of advanced disciples like Blavatsky,
Subba Rao, Annie Besant, C. W. Leadbeater, Damodar Mavlankar.
According to them even if a disciple should become self-reliant,
contempt of Guru is not at all justified at any stage on the path of
discipleship. As we know Blavatsky learned many things in Tibetan
Ashram, which is obviously a small organization. So Krishnamurti's
teaching is wrong at fundamental level, though he managed to impressed
people by telling some other good truths which he learned from Annie
Besant and Leadbeater.
