Truth is stranger than fiction. When I think about Krishnamurti's
philosophy, it surprises me because of extremely effective and
intelligent attack on all religions and spiritual teachings given by
various spiritual teachers at different times in the history.
Christian groups teach their members how Satan would attack Christ's
people. And that description fits perfectly in case of Krishnamurti's
I have also written article on this subject.
Ironically Krishnamurti despite his attacks on great teaching was
awarded peace prize by the United Nations. This is very similar
situation of Besant and Mahatma Gandhi. Besant and M.K. Gandhi both
had opposite political ideas. Besant was right and that is proved now
by history. But her opponent M.K. Gandhi became known as Mahatma in
the world.

Do you have a list of references where Leadbeater said "the Coming has
gone wrong" ?

This is quite possible because of Krishnamurti's setting himself
against all Spiritual Teachers on the right hand path.

As I see, Krishnamurti's teaching could have done damage to humanity
in far reaching ways  and scale.
