Like an iridescent diamond,” is how David Moody describes revered philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti in this intimate portrait of him at the Oak Grove School in California. Krishnamurti, once groomed by Theosophists to become the next World Teacher, founded the school in 1975 and personally oversaw it for the last decade of his life. Moody, Oak Groves first teacher and later director, recounts their close work together and explains Krishnamurtis ideas with splendid clarity. He also recounts how those ideas sparked competition among the staff, producing a complex force-field that challenged Moody to the utmost. The resulting drama, and Krishnamurtis involvement in it, forms the core of this rare, behind-the-scenes view.
