Krishnamurti is growing in popularity in China

Noted Indian thinker J. Krishnamurti has a considerable following in China where young people are looking at a philosophy that can give them answers from within, says Mark Lee, executive director of the Krishnamurti Foundation of America. He was speaking at the release of the Indian edition of a new book from the foundation, titled “Facing a World in Crisis”, edited by David Skitt, a trustee of the foundation in Britain. The book is a collection of the Indian spiritual teacher’s speeches in Switzerland and Britain in the 1970s and 1980s.

Krishnamurti (1895-1986), whose teachings have been compared with those of the Buddha and Vedanta, delivered addresses across the world, including India, and spoke about themes like death, fear, loneliness and environment.

“A professor from a Chinese university told me that in 10 years’ time, Krishnamurti will be as well-known in China as the Buddha,” Lee added.
