It was the *Leadbeaterian* theosophy that postulated ( and believed by
many) that to spiritually progress celibacy was important.

When Krishnmurti's physical relationships with Rosalind, his business
managers wife was made public by Rosalind's daughter, many theosophists
were shocked. On the other hand, a careful reading of his lectures made it
clear that he never advocated celibacy as a pre-requisite.

The general response from some of the membership has been that he had his
weaknesses and don't consider him to be nothing other than a spiritual
failure so they can go on and revel and rejoice in the revelation.
