A Star in the East: Krishnamurti, the Invention of a Messiah by Roland Vernon

Vernon draws on interviews, correspondence, published works, and other sources to portray the Indian religious leader as objectively as he can, certain that he will offend a few among both Krishnamurtis (1895-1986) followers and detractors. He describes how the young boy was discovered early in the 20th century by members of the Theosophical Society and carefully groomed to be a world leader, and how in 1922 he experienced a spiritual awakening and abandoned the Society to begin his own life of teaching. c.
