Jiddu Krishnamurti Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Krishnamurti dans les années 1920 Jiddu Krishnamurti (ou Jidhu Krishnamurti) (en télougou జిడ్డు కృష్ణ మూర్తి et en tamoul கிருஷ்ணமூர்த்தி), né à Madanapalle (Andhra Pradesh) le 12 mai 1895 et décédé à Ojai (Californie) le 17 février 1986, est un homme d'origine indienne promoteur d'une éducation alternative. D'abord présenté dès son adolescence par la société théosophique de l'époque comme un messie potentiel, il a opéré un revirement un peu plus tard pour développer une thèse radicalement opposée, reposant principalement sur l'idée qu'une transformation de l'humain ne peut se faire qu'en se libérant de toute autorité[2].

Gautama Buddha The word Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one". "Buddha" is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammāsambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksaṃbuddha) of our age.[note 6] Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the Sramana (renunciation) movement common in his region. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kośala.
