Carlo Suarès (1892-1976) : In 1910, Carlo Suares began his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, which he interrupted during the war, and from which he graduated as an architect in 1920. Married to Nadine Tilche in 1922, he met the Theosophist and thinker, Jiddu Krishnamurti in 1923, of whom he became a faithful friend and translator into French. He began to write in 1926 in the review he co-directed with Elain J. Finbert, Messages d'Orient. From 1928 to 1939, he participated in the writing of the magazine "Cahiers de l'Etoile" alongside Joe Bousquet, Le Corbusier, Krishnamurti, Benjamin Fondane.
His writings present a philosophical and religious reflection, particularly oriented towards the study of sacred texts and Kabbalah. He describes in his first work, Sur un orgue de Barbarie (1928) his revelation that conscience must free itself from collective ideologies (religion and politics), to arrive at consciousness of itself and its indeterminacy far from family influences. , social, cultural. With Joe Bousquet and Rene Daumal, he laid the foundations for a new psychology in La Comedie Psychologique (Paris, 1932). This vocation of consciousness to indeterminacy, Carlo Suares finds it in the exegesis of Genesis.
From 1940, Carlo Suars became a prolific painter, also interested in aesthetic theory, with in particular his theory of color exposed in L'Hyperbole chromatique.
Carlo Suares (d.1976) was of a very old Sephardi family that arrived in Spain probably with the Arab conquest. They emigrated during the Inquisition to Tuscany, and settled in Egypt in the 18th century. Expelled from Egypt and dispossessed, he settled in Paris and became a French citizen. He had a diploma in architecture from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and he painted a great deal, having "in true Kabbalistic spirit" sought to discover - and found - a synthesis of light.
Duversity.org: Cipher of Genesis (PDF)
Carlo Suarès (1892 -1976) dedicated a great part of his life to unraveling the revelatory symbolism hidden in the code of the Bible. He was born in Egypt and studied at the Icole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he earned a degree in architecture. Between 1927 and 1939, while living partly in France and partly in Egypt, he published a number of books, including La Nouvelle Creation, La Comidie psychologique, and Quoi Israel. In 1940, while still in Egypt, he considered his writing career finished, and turned to painting. He researched the composition of light, which he expressed by using turquoise blue and rose mauve as the basic colors of his palette. It took him fifteen years of intense work to master his new technique. During this period he wrote L'Hyperbole chromatique.
In 1945 Suarès started to write again, and among his more notable works are: Krishnamurti et L'Unite humaine, Critique de la Raison impure, La Kabale des Kabales, De quelque Apprentis-Sorciers. Suarès gives us the fruit of forty year's study of the Qabala in The Resurrection of the Word, The Cipher of Genesis, and The Song of Songs. (CoG p.304)

1958 French Colorful Abstract Oil on canvas painting Carlo Suares LISTED Fresh From a Fabulous South Florida Estate!
This is an exciting oil on canvas painting by the Famous Philosophical Writer and Well Listed Egyptian Artist Carlo Suarès (1892-1976). Many of Suarès artworks were confiscated and lost by the Egyptian Government in actions following the Suez Affair against those of Jewish heritage.
Suarès was born in Alexandria, Egypt with Spanish Toledo Jewish ancestry. In early adulthood Carlo served in the Egyptian Expeditionary force in World War One and traveled to Paris where he received a degree in Architecture form the Ecole de Beaux Arts. He Later Studied Etching in Florence, Italy with the famous Celestini.
OB While Working as a Co-editor of "Messages d'Orient" a review on Eastern and Far-Eastern matters, Carlo Suarès met and formed a close bond with the Indian philosopher and centerpoint of the Theosophical Society - Jiddu Krishnamurti in 1923. Following his Literary passion Suarez then returned to Paris and published a Monthly Literary review as well as a Number of literary critiques mostly on philosophical works including translations of various talks and writing of J. Krishnamuri.
Displaced from Paris back to Egypt during World War 2 Carlo temporarily abandoned writing and dedicated himself to his exploration of painting with some success. During the war period he had a One-man exhibition in Cairo and a Two-man Exhibition in Alexandria. Several of his works were acquired by museums in Cairo, Alexandria and Even in San Paolo Brazil. After the War his works were Quickly welcomed by the recovering Paris art scene with Two consecutive showings in Galerie Ariel, Galerie Colette Allendry and Galerie Suzanne de Conick. Another Large work was acquired and shown by the Modern Museum of Art in Paris.
After the Suez Affair of the 1950's Carlo Suarès and his wife were expelled from Egypt in 1956 with the bulk of his artistic works and other personal possessions being confiscated by the Egyptian government.
In 1957, now living permanently in Paris with his wife, Suarès had a great spiritual and artistic awakening. In the Same year he published L'Hvperbole Chromatique (The Chromatic Hyperbola) which explained his new synthesis of light and 'The Qabala Trilogy' which was his literary interpretation of the Genesis, the Song of Songs and the Sepher Yetsira. Both of these Works still receive great attention today. The Chromatic Hyperbola is still studied by art students while the Qabala Trilogy is highly revered by the Kabbalahists and Qubala Revivalists.
The Following year Suarez had a personal realization that his explorations in painting and Qabala were both aspects of the same aim in his life: The rebirth of creative spontaneity. In Painting according to the artist, this means a spacial projection of color as light, arranged in such a way to arouse in the eyes of viewer a movement, both in width and depth and thereby help the psyche, in its inner investigations. The artistic works of Suarès took on a much less figurative approach to painting, a trend which is well illustrated by this collection of works.
Later in 1958 the French Government chose one of his paintings to sent to Warsaw as a representative catalog of French Art. In the Early 1960's Carlo Suarès sent some works to the US through the Rose Fried Gallery in New York. Some Works sold with the balance of works being returned to Paris after Ms. Frieds Death. In 1965 Suarès was invited to the Santa Barbara Museum of Modern Art for a Oneman exhibition where the exposure led to more sales of his works in the US. This is a rare opportunity to invest in works by such an important progressive artist and modern philosophical revivalist of the 20th century.

Greece - Henry Miller and Jiddu Krishnamurti | Beobachtung des Unsichtbaren
On The Colossus of Maroussi: A Meditation on the End of War by Andy Hoffmann
In 1939, with fascism hanging as a rancid cloud over Paris, Henry Miller left that city where he had completed his first novels, Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. Exhausted from a decade of concentrated effort, he boarded a ship for Greece to meet his friend, the writer Lawrence Durrell.
For Krishnamurti, the only revolution is the revolution of the self. Lead your own life, he professed. Discover your own strength. No one can save you, so save yourself.18 Henry Miller first learned of Krishnamurti from friends in Paris in the early 30s. By this time Krishnamurti had left his leadership position of The Order of the Star of the East, an organization founded in 1911 by Theosophists ...
Henry Miller on Krishnamurti [excerpt from The Books in My Life by Henry Miller] 1952
It was Carlo Suares' book on Krishnamurti (ed: Unity of Man 1933) which opened my eyes to this phenomenon in our midst. I first read it in Paris and since then have reread it several times. There is hardly another book I have read so intently, marked so copiously, unless it be The Absolute Collective. After years of struggle and search I found gold.
I do not believe this book has been translated into English, nor do I know, moreover, what Krishnamurti himself thinks of it. I have never met Krishnamurti, though there is no man living whom I would consider it a greater privilege to meet than he. His place of residence, curiously enough, is not so very far from my own. However, it seems to me that if this man stands for anything it is for the right to lead his own life, which is surely not to be at the beck and call of every Tom, Dick and Harry who wishes to make his acquaintance or obtain from him a few crumbs of wisdom.
"You can never know me," he says somewhere. It is enough to know what he represents, what he stands for in being and essence. This book by Carlo Suares is invaluable. It is replete with Krishnamurti's own words culled from speeches and writings. Every phase of the latter's development (up to the year the book was published) is set forth -- and lucidly, cogently, trenchantly. Suares discreetly keeps in the background. He has the wisdom to let Krishnamurti speak for himself.
All the protective devices-social, moral, religious-which give the illusion of sustaining and aiding the weak so that they may be guided and conducted towards a better life, are precisely what prevent the weak from profiting by direct experience of life. Instead of naked and immediate experience, men seek to make use of protections and thus are mutilated. These devices become the instruments of power, of material and spiritual exploitation. (Suares' own interpretation.)
I am not a translator; I have had difficulty transcribing and condensing the foregoing observations and reflections. Nor am I attempting to give the whole of Krishnamurti's thought as revealed in Carlo Suares' book. I was led to speak of him because of the fact that, however solidly Krishnarnurti may be anchored in reality, he has unwittingly created for himself a myth and a legend. People simply will not recognize that a man who has made himself, simple, forthright and truthful is not concealing something much more complex, much more mysterious. [ed: irony alert see below]

Correspondence / Edouard Roditi & Steve Fredman / Tree 3 Winter 1972
Dear David Meltzer,
Thanks for sending me the two issues of TREE and t he four volumes of poetry, which have now all reached me safely, though the first parcel, forwarded from New York, was long delayed by the dock strike.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover your interest in the writing of my very old friend Carlos Suarès, whom I used to see almost daily, at one time before the War, though our paths now cross very rarely indeed. I used to congtribute poems to the Cahiers de l'Etoile and to Carnets , periodicals that he edited and published here in Paris between 1927 and 1934. In fact, I first introduced Suarès to Rène Daumal and to a couple of other Surrealists, and I also translated into English his La nouvelle création which a London published planned to publish, though this project never materialized. Somewhere in storage in my sister's basement in Washing D.C., I still have a typescript of this translation ...
But I am not concerned with gematria, with the Sefer Yetzirah and with all the more specifically Hebrew or linguistic aspects of Cabbalah which are meaningful only to one who is fmmiliar with classical Hebrew and Aramaic ...
This is where Carlo Suarès and I parted around 1935. He seemed to me to be very sure of his knowledge and understanding, very anxious to commuicate and explain them. Because of my ignorance of Hebrew, I cannot hope to understand him, nor can I accept on faith an argument that I cannot understand ...

Paul Bowles visited Krishnamurti at Kastel Eerde in the Netherlands in 1931; the visit was arranged by his friend Carlo Suares, who edited Carnets, a magazine devoted to Krishnamurti's writings.
Suarès, Carlo. An Alexandrian banker who lived in Paris with his wife and children, editor of Carnets, a magazine devoted to the writings of Krishnamurti, Friend of Edouard Roditi and Paul Bowles, Bowles frequently stayed at Suarès's apartment Paris in 1931-32.

In Berlin, Bowles had the feeling that all of life was being directed by Austrian film director Fritz Lang. Life in Germany during pre-World War II seemed sinister "because of the discrepancy between those who had it and those who didn't. The 'haves' were going hog-wild while the 'have-nots' seethed with hatred. A black cloud of hatred was over the whole east end of the city and one felt catastrophe in the air," observed Bowles ...
One person he wanted to meet was Carlo Suarès, a wealthy Egyptian architect who had moved to Paris to become a banker. Bowles had heard of Suarès through Carnets, a theosophical journal devoted to the writings of Krishnamurti, who lived in southern Holland. Suarès was presently the guest of Krishnamurti at Kasteel Eerde, and Bowles was invited to join them. Since only Indians could stay within the castle gates, he and Suarès slept in an apartment outside the compound and took meals with their host. Exhilarated by the philosophical conversations of Krishnamurti and Suarès, Bowles listened carefully.
Alexandria: City of Memory - Michael Haag - Google Books
Meanwhile, he had 'unearthed some facts about a cabalistic group, direct descendants of the Orphics, who throughout European history have been quietly at work on a morphology of experience which is pure Pythagoras. There are about six or seven in the Mediterranean area. They teach nothing; they assert nothing; they do not even correspond; they are pre-Christian adepts. I am going along to see Mr Baltazian one of these days to find all about the circle and the square. He is a small banker here.'
This was Durrell deliberately making Miller salivate, as when he wrote to him of Alexandrian women, and likewise it was another instance of Durrell straying into fantasy. The elder members of Alexandria's Armenian community have no knowledge of a Mr Baltazian, but the name appears in Durrell's 'Notes for Alex' where it is immediately transformed in 'Balthazar.' The cabalist's identity was later claimed by Carlo Suares, who said that he was the model for Balthazar in the Quartet ... Ultimately this would appear in Justine, where Balthazar says, "None of the great religions has done more than exclude, throw out a long range of prohibitions. But prohibitions create the desire they are intended to cure. We of this Cabal say: indulge but refine."
None of this has anything to do with the Orphics or the Pythagoreans, nor with pre-Christian adepts, whoever they were meant to be, but it does have a lot to do with Suares' friend Krishnamurti , who was a frequent and lengthy guests of Carlo and Nadine both at Saba Pasha and in the Seventh Arrondissement. Though Krishamurti broke with the Theosophical Society in 1930, essentially because he found it bitchy, riven by snobbery and backbiting among factions claiming to be the more select, he remained a theosophist in the general sense of the word, holding the belief that man could obtain direct and immediate experience of the divine. But instead man perversely sought deliverance or salvation by and through an intermediary; he refused to work for his own liberation, pretending that first the world must be liberated. Krishnamurti replied that the problems of the world were bound up with the problems of the individual: cultivate your doubts, embrace every kind of experience, keep on desiring, while surrendering your narrow sense of identity, so that in assimilating and integrating all that you have experienced you will find that truth is ever present, that eternity is here and now. Suares, who had written Krishnamurti, published in Paris in 1932, gave a copy to Durrell who said he found it excellent.
Durrell's notion of a cabalistic group of Mediterranean adepts also came from Suares, whose interests during the 1930s had expanded beyond Krishamurti and into the world of Jewish mysticism, which just then was undergoing a revival. In particular Suares had been delving in the Sepher Yetsirah a third-century account of the means by which God created the universe. The Psalmist wrote, 'By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth,' and so the Sepher Yetsirah claims that the divine utterance including all the letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which in their various combinations make up the holy languare, the language of creation. To each letter is assigned a number, and these taken together were the instruments by wich God created the cosmos in all its infinite variety. For the cabalist, the system of linguistical and numerical manipulation would reveal to him the real meaning, the true revelation, contained in cypher form within the book the Genesis and other holy texts, but it was also seen as a means of revealing the structure of universal energy. To Suares the release of this energy involved a transcending exaltation of the seven deadly sins, whose significance, he believed, could be traced back to Gnostic origins; and to achieve full realisation of oneself, said Suares, it ws necessary to become aware of the energies of these 'sins' and their true values so as to be able to integrate them into onself.
It was a game of mystification that could seem godly, and Durrell thought that Suares had gone off the rails since writing his Krishnamutri book and now believed that he was God. For that matter, to bring in matters of taste, Durrell found Suares' raucous canvases appalling -- he painted one a day, based on a theosophical theory of colour. But Durrell enjoyed Suares' childlike enthusiasm and his innocnce, his kindness and his warmth. Nadine could be a fierce and overbearing woman, but he worshipped hefr husband and condoned his many infidelities with partners of both sexes, and together they welcomed guests to their house at Saba Pasha with a wealth of hospitality.
Suares and his mystical Hebrew alphabet gave Durrell the idea in Justine for Balthazar's cabalistic group, with its exchanges of Hermetic philosophy written in Greek in boustrophendon form. But though there are rumors that Suares was working for French intelligence, and while at the heart of the medieval cabala was the belief that spiritual dislocation of the Jew would be healed when they returned to Zion, there is otherwise no indication that he get-togethers at Saba Pasha were a screen for Zionist activities. That was left to Durrell's imagination when after completing Justine he decided to extend his Book of the Dead into a political thriller. (pp. 307-310)
[Note: see Quoi Israel for Suares' "zionist activities." Also, Suares met K. in 1923 and wrote Krishnamurti in 1932 (revised as Krishnamurti and the unity of man in 1953), so he had known K for at least 14 years before Durrell even heard of him and 30 years before Durrell began writing about "Balthazar." in Alexandria Quartet in 1957-1960. Maybe Durrell's "off the rails" was the "great spiritual and artistic awakening" in 1957?]
Indian Metaphysics in Lawrence Durrell's Novels - C. Ravindran Nambiar (Suares, K, Durrell, Nin, Huxley, Bohm, Toben, Wolf, Sarfatti, Haag ... Besant ...)
When J.K. started making his spiritual contacts with people living all over the world Lawrence Durrell was only a boy. It was a period which attracted many Western thinkers to the East, and we know that in Europe Darwin had already undermined Christian faith. J.K. not only remained unattached to any orthodox religion or sect, but he also refused to be anybody's guru. Yet, very eminent writers, thinkers, scientists, and political personalities liked to make personal and spiritual congtact with him. Some of them were Thomas Mann, Aldous Huxley, H.G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Joseph Campbell , David Bohm, and Henry Miller. Robert S. Ellwood, a member of the Theosophical Society in America, states:
It was after hearing Krishnamurti's lecture in Paris in 1928 on rejecting all dependence that
Campbell stopped attending mass; he remained free of all formal reiigious attachments for
the rest of his life.
"A shy, badly-frightened, nice-looking Hindu boy", J.K. was discovered by Charles Leadbeater, an associate of Annie Besant, in 1909 at Adayar beach in Chennai in India. Leadbeater was there at the request of Mrs Annie Besant, the great British theosophist. J.K. admitted later on in his life that "he would certainly have died had Leadbeater not 'discovered' him" ... As Alan Gullette, a close associate of J.K. in Ojai and who writes in his thesis on his anti-Guru spiritual stand observes:
But most importantly, an essential part of Krishnamurti's thought is that
one must think for oneself, enquire on one's own, observe oneself; this is
no path, no method, no practice, no guru.
Not much information on the relationship between J.K. and Durrell can befound in the published works on Durrell, though some can be found on Miller's close friendship with J.K. in the published letter between Miller and Durrell ... as we know, Durrell and Miller had mutually shared everything that was interesting for them on earth. Hoffman writes:
Henry Miller first learned of Krishnamurti from friends in Paris in the early 30s ...
Carlo Suares, a French writer, painter and Kabbalah author, was born in Alexandria, and he became a very close friend of Durrell. His friendship with J.K. lasted for about forty years. In fact, there is a book named J. Krishnamurti by Suares. He also translated J.K.'s talks into French. A reference to this circle given in Destiny Matrix, by Jack Sarfatti, is surely very contextual here:
Bob (Toben) took us to see the eighty-five year old Carlo Suares and his wife Nadine.
Suares's circle included Krishnamurti, Henry Miller, Anais Nin, Aldous Huxley and
Lawrence Durrell. Durrell bases the character of Balthazar in "Alexandria Quartet"
on Saures. Suares lectured us on the Cabala in several meetings. I would not follow
him very well but Fred Wolf seemed to recover from his angst and got deeply involved
with Suares ... Suares had met Bohm through Krishnamurti.
Sarfatti, thus, gives us a clear picture of the inter-disciplinary nature of the circle of these thinkers. They must have definitely had free interaction on subjects like literature, Gnosticism, Indian metaphysics, and science, because they were people belonging to these different areas. The fact that Durrell was in the circle in which J.K. was very active is beyond any doubt now. Bohm played an important role in directly interrogating J.K's ideas and it led to great intellectual and spiritiual exchanges between them. We get much about J.K's views on the ego from Bohm's conversations with him. Bohm was a great Amercian theoretical physicst who contributied greatly to the field of quantum theory, philosophy of mind, and neuropsychology. With his disclosure about the intimate friendship among Saures, J.K, and Durrell, Sarfatti is unwittingly filling a gap that is visible in Durrell's published biographies. The literary circle of Miller, Durrell and Nin are already well familiar to Durrell scholars, as it is exhastively discussed by several writers in various articles and books. We have just seen Jack Sarfatti's statement that the character of Bathazar is based on Carlo Saures, a fact which Michael Haag has also revealed in his famous book: Alexandria: City as Memory. In an email to the present writer Haag explained:
Suares himself said he was the model for Balthazar. Robert Liddell said Gaston
Zananiri was the model. In fact both men were, which can be traced by carefully
comparing Durrell's letters to the writings of Suares and Zananiri and also to interviews
I did with Zananiri. And of course Bathazar has elements of Cavafy to him. It is a complex
business and you do need to read my book to follow it in detail. But I have no doubt that
Suares was a major source for the identity of Balthazar, especially the Balthazar of the
Thus, Haag is sure about the origin of the character, Balthazar ... (p. 37-40)
[Note: sure looks like Suares was the nexus for a lot of these connections. He met K in 1923 when he was 31 and K was 28 via Messages d'Orient but where? HVM tells Durrell about Enchained Procession in 1937 ... When Anais Nin met Lawrence Durrell in Paris in 1937 ... When does Miller read Suares' Krishnamurti and when does Suares give it to Durrell? "Durrell was in the circle in which J.K. was very active ..." But in 1952 Miller hadn't yet met K. Is that the same "circle" where K is a "frequent and lengthy guest?" Bohm meets Krishnamurti in 1961. He meets Suares through or because of K, when/where? like, his apartment that the German high command occupied after Suares was told by a "messenger" to get the fuck out of town before the Nazis arrived? Talk about Destiny Matrices: the Nazis occupied the house of the Annunciator of the Second Coming]

GQ: Doesn't [Carlo] Suarès quarrel with that meaning anyway in The Cipher of Genesis?
RK: Here he takes "Adam" as Aleph plus "blood" or what happens to you if you fuck around with women, I think is really what he's after, that the spiritual Aleph is corrupted by the menstrual blood and flows into animal, becomes Ruach. Aleph lodges itself in the Ruach rather than the Neshamah. He doesn't say that explicitly but I suppose ... That book is itself one that has to be read cabalistically, don't you think. I mean he talks very blithely as if he were saying the whole story, but then you have to drop blithely a level down. Doesn't he seem to talk about the Aleph lodged in the wrong one of its human faculties? ~~~
GQ: You like that book?
RK: Yes, very much. It's a different take, a different kind of discourse about Kabbalah, than one is familiar with from the dreary pieties from the Jews and Christians who have unusually written about it; I suppose mostly Christians have written about it, and Hermeticists ...

Illustration: The Suares Equation from Space-Time and Beyond by Bob Toben
Stardrive: Jack Sarfatti
Bob Toben arrived in Paris. We spent most of our time writing "Space-Time and Beyond" in the Cafe Deux Maggots. Fred was distraught over some woman, was very manic and could not concentrate. So I wrote most of the first rough draft, which Fred rewrote in the second edition.  Suares lived in a penthouse at the edge of the Champs de Mars only a few meters away from my Cocteauesque encounter with the motorcyclists a few months earlier. Suares, a Sephardic Spanish Jew born in Alexandria, Egypt, was a student of the Cabala.  He was a close friend of Krishnamurti, Lawrence Durrell and Henry Miller. 
Bob took us to see the eighty four year old Carlo Suares  and his wife Nadine , Suares's circle included Krishnamurti, Henry Miller, Anais Nin, Aldous Huxley and Lawrence Durrell.86 Durrell bases the character of Balthazar in "Alexandria Quartet"
Suares lectured us on the Cabala in several meetings. I could not follow him very well but Fred Wolf seemed to recover from his angst and got deeply involved with Suares. I did understand that Suares thought that Genesis, in the original Hebrew Letters, in The Bible was really a cosmic code for physicists.  Suares had met Bohm through Krishnamurti. Oddly enough, Suares with piercing eyes like the head of Kardec and like Yoda initiating Luke Skywalker in Star Wars suddenly put his hands on my shoulders saying :
"You do not understand yet. You are the Heir to the Tradition. You will not come into your power until you are with the woman and the child. You will smash the wall of light!"
If the many material "brane" worlds of Super Cosmos110 are correct, then, at that dramatic moment the universe split into two parallel universes. In the universe next door the Holocaust never happened and neither did the State of Israel. Carlo Suares speaking from the occult cabalistic perspective said that Hitler was God's Instrument for the Restoration of Israel. I do not think it was worth the price. Putzi continued: [ed: which raises the question ... why did He want to do that?]
86 I was invited to Theosophical Happy Valley estate in Ojai outside of Santa Barbara by Suares's California friends ...
xxxii Carlo was close friends with Jack Parson's partner Frank Malina, Henry Miller, Aldous Huxley, Lawrence Durrell and Krishnamurti. He met David Bohm but they did not hit it off. Parsons and Malina invented JATO in WWII, created Cal Tech's JPL with von Karman and created Aerojet General. Parsons supported Aleister Crowley and roomed with L.Ron. Hubbard before he created Scientology. Malina was close friends with Werner Von Braun, Carl Sagan and other major scientists. He ran UNESCO Science in Paris and created the Leonardo Foundation of Science and Art. I stayed at the Malina house in Paris a few years ago after his death. I met Malina in Paris with Carlo Suares in 1973.

Toward the end of September K went to Paris where he stayed with Carlo Suares and his wife Nadine at their eighth-floor apartment at 15 av- enue de la Bourdonnais. Carlo Suares was Spanish and his wife Egyptian. K had known them since 1927 and had become increasingly friendly with them. Suares had translated several of his books into French. -- Krishnamurti The Years Of Fulfilment A Biography By Mary Lutyens p.61
In K's view, no kind of social reform could ever be the answer to the fundamental question of human misery. It was scratching the surface. His work was concerned with the nature of man. Until man himself changed radically all other change was useless and irrelevant. p. 62
K challenged, and still challenges, the whole concept of the sub- conscious mind, maintaining that there is only one consciousness. The dividing of consciousness into different layers causes friction and conflict. 'When you become aware of your conditioning you will understand the whole of your consciousness' p. 65
At the beginning of February 1938 K met the English writer, Gerald Heard, who was living in Hollywood and had written to ask if he might see him. Heard was invited to Arya Vihara where he spent the day. 'He seems a nice man and we all had interesting talk. He is well up in scientific knowledge,' was K's comment. comment. Heard had arrived in America in April 1937 with Aldous Huxley ... When Christopher Isherwood came to California in 1939 he was introduced by his friend Gerald Heard to Swami Prabhavananda and soon became his disciple ... K had met Lilian Gish, the heroine of those early silent films, Orphans of the Storm and The Birth of a Nation, with John Barrymore, a friend of K's until his death in 1942. It was Barrymore who had asked K to take the part of Buddha in a film he wanted to make on the Buddha's life ... The Ommen Camp, the fifteenth, took place in August. It was the last ever to be held there. It was cancelled the following year because of the imminence of war, and in 1941 the site was turned into a concentration camp by the Germans ... After the Camp K begged Lady Emily to come and stay at Ommen -- she could stay in his hut which had every comfort or at Heenan. When he realised how reluctant she was to make the jour- ney, he and Rajagopal went to London to see her. They arrived on September 16, the day on which Neville Chamberlain returned triumphantly from Munich with his 'paper of peace.' ... After the Germans walked into Belgium and Holland on May 10, K received no more news from Ommen. France capitulated on June 22. The de Manziarlys managed to get away to the States, except Sacha who was with the Free French in London. The Suares' had gone to Egypt ... At this time K was giving talks in the Oak Grove ... He made no allowance for anti-German feeling among his audience and when he preached pacifism, saying ... many of his listeners left the meeting after creating a disturbance. At the end of August he was at Sarobia again, near Philadelphia, where the Logans had arranged a gathering. It was the last time he was to speak in public until 1944 ... In October K went with Rosalind to Martha's Vineyard, an island about eight miles from the southernmost tip of Massachusetts. p.68-80

From "Lives in the Shadow with J Krishnamurti" by Radha Rajapol Sloss (daughter of Raja and Rosalind Rajapol (Krishna's lover of thirty years)
[ Lives in the Shadow with J. Krishnamurti by Radha Rajagopal Sloss - Ebook | Scribd ]
[ Archive.org ]
Krishna arrived in Paris the next day. He was staying as usual with old friends riends, the Suares in their lovely apartment overlooking the Eiffel Tower. For years Carlo Suares had been translating Krishna's books into French.. Both he and his wife Nadine were devoted to Krishna and they were also very fond of Rosalind. It was difficult to keep her distress from them. (p.383)
They both stopped off in Alexandria to visit the Suares who had a villa there in addition to their apartment in Paris. (They would shortly, under Nasser, lose most of their money and all their holdings in Egypt). Krishna walked with Carlo Suares along the beach in Alexandria while Raja slept. (p.410)
Back in London, Krishna did his best to comfort Lady Emily - to the degree that once again she got the impression that he would not have minded all that much if her book were after all published. But on the same day that this meeting took place he wrote to Ros- alind that Candles would definitely not be published ever and that he had told Lady Emily she must accept his decision, even to the extent of putting in her will that it would never happen!
Did Krishna himself believe he had settled the matter with Lady Emily in the way he described to Rosalind? Would Lady Emily have been shocked to have seen how casually, in his letter to Rosalind, he treated her distress, always confident that he could sway her to his point of view? Or was he aware of his inability to face any unplesantness; to offer a straightforward 'No' face to face? Lady Emily was not as taken in as Krishna might have imagined. She may have been powerless to take a stand against him, but she could be very clear-sighted. One day she would write to Raja: 'You have been the lamb on Krishna's altar.' Before she died she went even further. She said she knew Krishna was a congenital liar but that she would nevertheless always adore him. (p. 426)
Thus continued the splitting and re-aligning of many old friendships. Those who were not by temperament devotees could more easily see Raja's side and would come more and more to stand by him as the situation became even worse.
Those who considered themselves friends of both parties tried during the next few years to bring about a reconciliation; with a few it became almost a mission that they must achieve; for others there was a great deal, psychologically, at stake. Many people who had adhered closely to Krishna had done so because in various ways they felt that he had literally saved them, and that they owed him a great deal for this. Others who had worked closely with Raja and were in a position to know most of the facts, which partly by nature and partly of necessity, Raja had kept private, had to face a slow bitter disillusionment with Krishna- the same disillusionment that Raja had faced many years before [after it was revealed that K had had a thirty year secret sexual relationship with Raja's wife, Rosalind] had lived with coming to believe, much as Rosalind now believed that Krishna was more than one person. Until a person had had his own experience with the other side of Krishna, he was susceptible to believing Krishna's charges against Raja. Many old friends were deeplly hurt when Krishna abruptly terminated his relationship with them because they were intrepid enough to show the slightest criticism. Among those Carlo and Nadine Suares, who for years had opened their homes to Krishna for lengthy stays both in Alexandria and in Paris and helped to translate his talks, most unexpectedly received this treatment.
As Krishna well knew the Suares had lost nearly everything in the Egyptian revolution and their circumstances were far from easy; nevertheless, when he was in Paris, they always invited hiim to stay with them. But on the occasion when he had asked them to include a new friend, Krishna inspected the guest room where Nadine had invited the young man to stay and said "A grown man cannot stay in such a hole." Nadine told me the story a few years later, her gentle face suffused with baffled unhappiness. "How could he say such a thing?" she asked while showing us the room, which was airy and comfortable with a bed, desk and chair. Whether Krishna's behavior stemmed from some irritation toward the Suares, the cause of which I am unaware, or whether he was weeding out all the old-timers who were not totally committed to him and opposed to Raja, I cannot say.
J. Krishnamurti: A Life of Compassion beyond Boundaries
In the 1960s, his long association with the Suares ended. Carlo and Nadine Suares had been closely associated with him, and he used to often stay with them in Paris. There are different versions about why they fell apart ... but Radha provides the Suares' account ...
Krishnamurti; since I don't know the whole story. I realize that , in their younger days, along with their friends, the Suares were truly interested in him. And I realize that all Theosophists were quite excited at the prospect that the new teacher had been found. But after knowing him for many years, they were disillusioned. I remember remarks such as (but now we are in the realm of gossip; so please remember that this is not gospel,) remarks like, he could only stand silk shirts against is skin. His clothes had to be initialled. And at what point the Suares learned of his affair with Rosalind , I don't know. Rajagopal was presumably Krishanaji's best friend; so that it is not a pretty picture. I am afraid that that is all I know about Krishnamurti and Suares.
