Mary Lutyens determines it to be 12 May  but Christine Williams notes the unreliability of birth registrations in that period and that statements claiming dates ranging from 4 May to 25 May exist.
She uses calculations based on a published horoscope to derive a date of 11 May but "retains a measure of scepticism" about it. He was born in a Telugu -speaking family.
His father, Jiddu Narayaniah, was employed as an official of the British colonial The love sick society. Krishnamurti was fond of his mother Sanjeevamma, who died when he was ten. He would suffer recurrent bouts of the disease over many years. Being of limited means he sought employment at the headquarters of the Theosophical Society at Adyar.
In addition to being a Brahmin, Narayaniah had been a Theosophist since He was eventually hired by the Society as a clerk, moving there with his family in January There was an element of subservience, obedience. He was like a vessel with a large hole in it, whatever was put in, went through, nothing remained.
Leadbeater and a small number of trusted associates undertook the task of educating, protecting, and generally preparing Krishnamurti as the "vehicle" of the expected World Teacher.
Krishnamurti often later called Krishnaji  and his younger brother Nityananda Nitya were privately tutored at the Theosophical compound in Madras, and later exposed to a comparatively opulent life among a segment of European high society as they continued their education abroad. Despite his history of problems with schoolwork and concerns about his capacities and physical condition, the year-old Krishnamurti was able to speak and write competently in English within six months.
In he sued Besant to annul the guardianship agreement. After a protracted legal battle Besant took custody of Krishnamurti and Nitya.
Krishnamurti was named as its head, with senior Theosophists assigned various other positions.
Membership was open to anybody who accepted the doctrine of the Coming of the World Teacher. Controversy soon erupted, both within the Theosophical Society and outside it, in Hindu circles and the Indian press.
He eventually gave up university education after several attempts at admission. He did take to foreign languages, in time speaking several with some fluency. He was described, initially, as a halting, hesitant, and repetitive speaker, but his delivery and confidence improved, and he gradually took command of the meetings.
The experience was tempered by the realisation that his work and expected life-mission precluded what would otherwise be considered normal relationships and by the mids the two of them had drifted apart.
In California they stayed at a cottage in the Ojai Valley. Eventually a trustformed by supporters, bought a cottage and surrounding property there for them. The initial events happened in two distinct phases: This condition recurred, at frequent intervals and with varying intensity, until his death.
Over the next two days the symptoms worsened, with increasing pain and sensitivity, loss of appetite, and occasional delirious ramblings. He seemed to lapse into unconsciousness, but later recounted that he was very much aware of his surroundings, and that while in that state he had an experience of "mystical union".
The following day the symptoms and the experience intensified, climaxing with a sense of "immense peace". Later the process resumed intermittently, with varying degrees of pain, physical discomfort and sensitivity, occasionally a lapse into a childlike state, and sometimes an apparent fading out of consciousness, explained as either his body giving in to pain or his mind "going off".
Sensitivity, not only to beauty but also to all other things. The blade of grass was astonishingly green; that one blade of grass contained the whole spectrum of colour; it was intense, dazzling and such a small thing, so easy to destroy It is strange how during one or two interviews that strength, that power filled the room.
There is no possibility of getting used to it for it has never been nor will it ever be The process at Ojai, whatever its cause or validity, was a cataclysmic milestone for Krishna.
