One of the greatest thinkers of the age. H. H. The Dalai Lama throughout his life from 1922 to 1986 Krishnamurti experienced mysterious states of extreme pain, transcendental bliss, and contact with forces unrecognizable to most people. J. Krishnamurti’s process is a compendium of the full and unedited eyewitness accounts, including his own, of those mysterious and other-worldly states of being. Included are Krishnamurti’s own perceptions on how the conditioned mind turns experience into belief, and concretizes what is subtle, beautiful, and pure. While the mystery of the process remains today, some appreciation of it provides a further understanding of Krishnamurti’s teachings. “R. E. Mark Lee has done a great service in gathering all the available material referring to the process which radically transformed Krishnamurti’s whole being. Whatever one can gather from the descriptions, the process, which started in 1922 and continued throughout Krishnamurti’s life, seems to have been unique in human history, as if some subtle forces were conducting surgical operations on various parts of Krishnamurti’s body, especially the brain, causing much pain but bringing great insights. On one occasion Krishnamurti himself had taken me to the tree under which the process had taken place. When I asked him about the exact nature of the process, he looked at me sadly and said, “this is what everyone wants to know. Then they will start imitating it and faking it. No, it cannot be said.” so the mystery remains about the precise nature of the process and the forces behind it. One result of the process was an increasing emphasis by Krishnamurti on self-inquiry and self-dependence, not asking anything from outside and dwelling in the truth discovered in the purity of inner being.” Ravi Ravindra, Professor for philosophy and Physics, author.
