Jiddu Krishnamurti is one the greatest spiritual and philosophical thinkers the world has known. He influenced Eckhart Tolle, Joseph Campbell and Alan Watts, and continues to inspire thousands today.
Yet he belonged to no religion, sect or single country. Nor did he subscribe to any school or political or ideological thought. On the contrary, Krishnamurti maintained that these are the very factors that divide human beings and bring about conflict – an approach that makes his teachings particularly relevant now.
In Flight of the Eagle, Krishnamurti grapples with themes such as freedom, change, peace, violence and finally – the transcendent. He invites us to join him on a remarkable journey into all that we might become.
