Old Indy attempts to enlighten a down on his luck trucker by telling him about the most extraordinary person he ever met: Krishnamurti. In 1910 The Jones family was attending a meeting of the Theosophy movement in Benares, India. Society leaders Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater pronounced a young boy named Jiddu Krishnamurti to be the next world teacher and possible messiah. Traveling the holy city, Krishnamurti explained to Indy about the similarities between all different religions. However, Miss Seymour was less easily convinced and became determined to expose Leadbeater as a fraud. Written by
