The Trail to Enlightenment

Life and Teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti


Shuvendu Patnaik, an electrical engineer by profession, has been a member of the local committee for Krishnamurti Foundation India, Cuttack Centre, for many years. He has journeyed from childhood beliefs and superstitions to ancient wisdom and occultism contained in Theosophy, and then out of it to plunge deeply into a study of the life and teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti. Passionately devoted to a study of the spiritual side of life for over 45 years, he has met and also lived with illuminated men, known about their spiritual experiences, and learnt from their insight about the hidden worlds of nature around us and their inviolable laws.
