The Trail to Enlightenment

Life and Teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti

The Trail to Enlightenment

The trilogy of The Trail to Enlightenment explains everything relevant in occultism and spirituality, from genesis to invisible soaring heights into enlightenment and beyond, told as a story through the life and teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti. 

It is a major work on Jiddu Krishnamurti covering his life and teachings. It explores the theories, philosophies and science of spirituality that lead to enlightenment and re-examines them in the light of Krishnamurti to come upon surprising and encouraging findings.

The first volume, Part 1 The Hidden Side of Life, describes the visible and invisible worlds in our environment and the laws governing them. It is about the metaphysics or the science of our surroundings.

The second volume, Part 2 The Great Coming, is devoted to the life of Krishnamurti and teachings – the art of living.

The third volume, Part 3 The Key to Super Consciousness, blends the science with the art, to show why the art as learnt from the teachings can result in enlightenment. Mysteries are also investigated to come upon surprising findings.

The three volumes are described as three lands along the trail to enlightenment. Together they tell a grand story about our surrounding, life, spirituality and enlightenment embedded in the saga of Krishnamurti.

A breathtakingly profound insight into the development of super consciousness, delivered with deep reverence and emotive sensitivity. This is a great effort of thought provoking words and ideas to cleanse spiritual darkness from our minds.

J. Krishnamurti, the journey that he undertook find simple, yet scintillating, expression in Shuvendu Patnaik’s magnum opus, The Trail to Enlightenment. In scale, sincerity and scholarship, the three volumes together make an invaluable contribution to the study of philosophic literature on J. Krishnamurti.
