|From my library: THE STAR "JAN,-APR-1928"|
The "Order of the Star in the East" was organized in 1912. It was put together by Theosophists acting under Annie Besant and C. W. Leadbetter who identified Jiddhu Krishnamurti as the "new Christ." He was a child seen bathing by the River Adyar in Madras, India by the former Anglical priest C. W. Leadbetter. Leadbetter claimed he had seen the "christ aura" around Krishnamurti. The Theosophical Society took guardianship of the child. The child's father, an Indian magistrate whose wife recently died came to repent of his decision and tried through the Indian courts to regain custody. When he prevailed in the highest Indian courts, Annie Besant fled to England with his two sons, Krishnamurti and Nityananda. The English courts reversed the Indian courts on a technicality: no guardian ad litem had been appointed to advise the Indian courts on the "best welfare of the children." Krishnamurti's father was justifiably anxious. Leadbetter was a reputed pedophile.
As Krishnamurti aged, the expectations were that a "day of declaration would come" in which he would assume leadership over a "New World Order." Internationally, frantic preparations were made by true Theosophical believers and fellow occult travelers to hasten that day. The material you see above is from one of the elaborate magazines edited by his followers. Krishnamurti himself was a frequent writer for the magazine.
Krishnamurti died in Ojai, California in 1986. For the record, Jesus lives!
Now that I have the capacity to scan single pages onto my system, I plan to show you others from time to time. The themes are virtually identical to what we are hearing today. The goals are certainly the same although the "candidates" are different.
