J Krishnamurti Online
The official repository of the authentic teachings of J. Krishnamurti.
The J Krishnamurti Online site guarantees the authenticity of a large text collection of all of Krishnamurti’s published works from 1933 to 1986, the equivalent of 200 average-sized books, all site content being searchable and freely downloadable in text format.
After Krishnamurti left the Theosophical Society, he began to travel extensively giving public talks and holding discussions in several places, from important cities like London, Paris and New York to small rural towns in India. These were published every year as ‘Verbatim Reports’, starting from July 1933 and going on till 1967. Later, in 1992, the Krishnamurti Foundation of America put them all together in 17 volumes and republished them under the title The Collected Works of J. Krishnamurti. Those are also included in this site.
A selection of video and audio is also available in streaming format, and future plans include adding previously unpublished work to the online text collection, and expanding the video and audio capacity.
