Publications interested in Krishnamurti ranged from local newspapers to international magazines. Thousands of articles, including opinion pieces, lengthy interviews, book reviews and obituaries, have been collected for the Krishnamurti archives and scanned for preservation and ease of access.
This edition of From the Archives highlights articles from eight decades of the 20th century, revealing how the media and society perceived Krishnamurti. There are errors and inaccuracies, and a tendency to label and define, but there is also genuine questioning, insightful observations, the narrative of an extraordinary life, and teachings contextualised.
Krishnamurti also appeared on film, television and radio when he felt the producers and presenters were serious, taking the opportunity to introduce his teachings to new and broad audiences. Today, decades after his death, programmes and films about his life and works are still produced, articles are written, and videos of his talks and dialogues attract millions of views on online media platforms.
