Annie Besant's Comments on Krishnamurti

There are many, who consider Krishnaji failed in his mission to be the
vehicle of the World Teacher. Of course he did not go round and tell
everyone that about his role as World Teacher, but, for many, his lectures
had very sublime practical comments.

In the recent book - Krotona, Theosophy and Krishnamurti, Joseph Ross quotes
the following which gives an idea how Annie Besant viewed Krishnaji.

>From the Adyar 1heosophist, March 1930, is an article "Dr.
Besant Discusses Krishnaji."

Dr. Besant reminds the members of the Theosophical
Society, that Krishnaji does not share that omniscience of
the Lord Maitreya, but a fragment of the World-Teacher's
consciousness is in him, and his own is merged in it. And
you must remember that that consciousness in him in the
ordinary affairs of life behaves like that of an ordinary man.
He puts down as it were a sort of finger of Himself into a
human body specially prepared to stand the strain, a body
absolutely pure, a life which for years has been a perfect
human life. The consciousness of Krishnaji is merged with
that Consciousness. It seems to be a merging of consciousness
but we cannot expect to understand its details. Treat him with
great respect. Do not force yourselves upon him with a kind
of physical devotion. It is very tiresome for anyone to live in a
physical body while every one is staring at him. He has taken
this body to help the world by it.
