Jiddu Krishnamurti was as Indian philosopher, public speaker and writer. When he was a teenager, he was taught and looked after by Annie Besant (a leader of the Theosophical Society) and was trained to become a World Teacher. Jiddu eventually rejected this role and dissolved the organization.
For almost 60 years, he traveled all around the world, delivering speeches and holding dialogues on freedom, nature, beliefs, religion and truth. He always delivered his talks as a friend instead of a leader.
He wrote several books that received acclaim worldwide. He neither joined any religious groups nor became a part of any specific political party.
