If you had to sum up what Krishnamurti is all about in just a few words of your own, what would they be?

"TAT TWAM ASI=That Thou ART"

Mah?v?kya (Grand Pronouncement) (Sanskrit: “thou art that”), in Hindu philosophy, the famous expression of the relationship between the individual and the absolute. The statement is frequently repeated in the sixth chapter of the Ch?ndogya Upani?had (c. 600 bc,6.8.7 of the Sama Veda )as the teacher Udd?laka ?ru?i instructs his son Shvetaketu in the nature of the supreme reality. The identity expressed in this judgment was variously interpreted by the different schools of the orthodox philosophy of Ved?nta. The phrase was given its most literal interpretation by the 8th–9th-century thinker ?a?kara of the Advaita (Nondualist) school, for whom the statement was one of the great assertions fundamental … to the ultimate reality or
PURE CONSCIOUSNESS.
