Krishnamurti -The Reluctant Messiah


Published on Jun 24, 2012



Krishnamurti was born in British India and in early adolescence, he had a chance encounter with prominent occultist and theosophist Charles Webster Leadbeater in the grounds of the Theosophical Society headquarters at Adyar in Madras. He was subsequently raised under the tutelage of Annie Besant and Leadbeater, leaders of the Society at the time, who believed him to be a "vehicle" for an expected World Teacher. As a young man, he disavowed this idea and dissolved the Order of the Star in the East, an organisation that had been established to support it.

He said he had no allegiance to any nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent the rest of his life travelling the world, speaking to large and small groups and individuals. He wrote many books, among them The First and Last Freedom, The Only Revolution, and Krishnamurti's Notebook. Many of his talks and discussions have been published. His last public talk was in Madras, India, in January 1986, a month before his death at his home in Ojai, California.

Charles W Leadbeater, the discoverer of Krishnamurti had a checkered reputation


Discovery of Krishnamurti

In 1909 Leadbeater "discovered" fourteen-year-old Jiddu Krishnamurti on the private beach attached to the headquarters at Adyar. Jiddu was able to use that beach as his own father was working for the society and living on the grounds. Leadbeater believed Krishnamurti to be the "vessel" for the indwelling of a concept known as World Teacher,[27] whose imminent appearance he and many Theosophists were expecting. Like Moses, Siddhārtha Gautama, Zarathustra (Zoroaster), Jesus of Nazareth, and Muhammad ibn 'Abdullāh, the new teacher would reputedly divulge a new religious dispensation.[28]

Leadbeater assigned the pseudonym Alcyone to Krishnamurti and under the title "Rents in the Veil of Time", he published 30 reputed past lives of Alcyone in a series in The Theosophist magazine beginning in April 1910. "They ranged from 22,662 BC to 624 AD ... Alcyone was a female in eleven of them."[29]

Leadbeater stayed in India until 1915, overseeing the education of Krishnamurti; he then relocated to Australia. During the late 1920s, Krishnamurti disavowed the role that Leadbeater and other Theosophists expected him to fulfil.[30] He disassociated himself from the Theosophical Society and its doctrines and practices,[31] and during the next six decades became known as an influential speaker on philosophical and religious subjects.

Is Earth the home planet of Ascended Masters?


A really good introduction to celestials is a series of books by Baird Spalding, called Masters of the Far East. He described how 11 scientists traveled to the Himalayas in the early 20th century. Along the way they were helped by a group of beings that were basically Ascended Masters. These Ascended Masters had all of the abilities seen in the Star Wars movies. But these Ascended Masters had these abilities fully developed. They could levitate; they could bilocate; telepathy was something they could do very easily; telekinesis – they could raise objects easily. Within the Masters of the Far East series you read story after story of how these Ascended Masters helped that scientific mission. The mission was there for a number of years, and these celestials or Ascended Masters ensured that Baird Spalding’s expedition could be introduced to the philosophies, to the sacred wisdom of the Far East. Spalding was certainly incredibly impressed about that and wrote his series of six books about what happened there. The interesting thing about the Ascended Masters was that they described themselves as part of a vast brotherhood, that wasn’t just on the Earth, but beyond as well. Again you have that idea of a universal brotherhood.

. . .

This is something that Helena “Madam” Blavatsky talked about in terms of the Great White Brotherhood. She was the first to describe them as this association of Spiritual Adepts. They could do things through the power of consciousness alone – move through space-time, manipulate matter, incredible powers of telekinesis, bilocation, all of those psychic abilities. These Ascended Masters had these abilities to a very high level. She went into great depth into the Masters. I give this as an example of a civilization – it’s probably more appropriate to call them a brotherhood. That’s why they are called the Great White Brotherhood. There are other terms used such as the Brotherhood of Light.

These are beings who through spiritual development, spiritual discipline, have been able to rise beyond the limitations of the body, thinking of the mind, to truly embrace and connect with a universal energy field so the power of their mind and intent was so focused that they could instantly do things. If we look at ourselves, we have very great difficulty in silencing and focusing our minds – even for ten seconds. Yet the Great White Brotherhood, or beings that have been able to go through the spiritual discipline and practices, have been able to train themselves to do that. We know it can be done. There are many examples of those that have been able to discipline their mind to do these incredible things. So we know it can be done, it’s just a matter of disciplining yourself so you go through or rise beyond the point of where you are thinking about silence, to where you actually begin to be silent. That’s where the power really comes in.

One of the quotes that I want to mention was by Charles Leadbeater a theosophist from the early 20th century. He said:

The Great White Brotherhood also includes members of the Heavenly Host (the Spiritual Hierarchy directly concerned with the evolution of our world), Beneficent Members from other planets that are interested in our welfare, as well as certain unascended chelas.

So Leadbeater was basically putting in a very concise way what the Theosophical Society believed. The Ascended Masters, the Great White Brotherhood, The Brotherhood of Light, wasn’t just limited to the Earth. This was a Universal Brotherhood of celestial beings.


An example of an Ascended Master is from India - Babaji. He was described at length by Paramahmsa Yogananda who write that very influential autobiography, Autobiography of a Yogi. I remember reading that about four times. It’s one of those classics that you read again and again. It’s like being in a desert and you find this Oasis and you think you got to drink deeply because there’s a lot of desert to walk over. Yogandanda talked a lot about Ascended Masters and the beings in his particular spiritual order, Kriya Yoga. So Babaji was described as living for thousands of years in the Himalayas, and maintains a youthful appearance. That’s something that’s pretty important. These ascended Masters are not necessarily long bearded men with gray hair but maintain a youthful appearance for a long time. Personally I think that’s important to keep in mind as we move into these possibilities of a greater connection with the Galaxy and the Universe. Even the aging process is not an iron law of the universe. Babaji and other ascended masters illustrate that.

So, to summarize so far. Celestials are highly developed ethical beings that have been described in the literature in many different ways, as Angels, Ascended Masters, Elohim, etc. The important thing is that they share that one characteristic, that they can tap into to the universal energy grid and work with that energy in developing high states of cosmic consciousness, and manifest things in their lives and around them for the benefit of society.

Now we get to the question of what’s the difference between celestials and extraterrestrial life?

I began to talk earlier about extraterrestrial life and the growing scientific interest them. So what’s the difference with celestials? Well, celestials travel through the universe using the power of consciousness alone, and they are not confined to any one physical location. They don’t need technology to move. An Ascended Master, one of these celestials, can move instantaneously just by using the power of consciousness. That distinguishes them from these different extraterrestrial civilizations that I spoke about earlier, Type I, Type II etc., that really need technology to be able to move through space and time.
