Jiddu Krishnamurti (11 May 1895 – 17 February 1986) was a philosopher, speaker and writer. In his early life, he was groomed to be the new World Teacher, but later rejected this mantle and withdrew from the Theosophy organization behind it. His interests included psychological revolution, the nature of mind, meditation, holistic inquiry, human relationships, and bringing about a radical change in society. He stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being and emphasised that such a revolution cannot be brought about by any external authority, be it religious, political, or social.
