The Beauty of Life is an updated and complete edition of the work previously known as Krishnamurti's Journal

In September 1973, Krishnamurti suddenly started keeping a journal. For nearly six weeks he made daily entries in a notebook. For the first month of that period, Krishnamurti was staying at Brockwood Park in Hampshire, and for the rest of the time in Rome. He resumed the journal eighteen months later while in California. 

Nearly every entry starts with a description of a natural scene which he knew intimately, yet in only three instances do these descriptions refer to the place in which he was actually staying. Thus, the first page of the first entry describes the Grove at Brockwood Park, but by the second page, he is evidently in Switzerland in imagination. It is not until he is staying in California in 1975 that he again describes his actual surroundings. For the rest, he is recalling places he has stayed, with a clarity that shows how vivid was his memory for natural scenery, arising from the acuteness of his observation. This journal also reveals to what an extent his teaching was inspired by his closeness to nature. 

In December 2007, 36 pages in Krishnamurti’s handwriting were handed to the archivist in Ojai, California by Mary Zimbalist. When Krishnamurti first gave the pages to her, he said they were for the Journal. They consisted of 13 new entries, which were first published in Krishnamurti Foundation Trust Bulletins numbered 56 to 61.

This new Full-text edition includes these additional entries, forming a complete Journal for the first time.

As turns out, this is a publication of a different title already in the personal collection. What would be of significance is sending a printed list of all J K publications to this home address on 1208 22nd Avenue B-Silvis, Illinois 61282. Would be interested in the titles unknown personally. Remain interested in again ordering from your library. Kindly see to it. affectionately, Franklin Rasso

Suitable title

This book was written in continuous for 70 years
And today is 101 years that makes sense for eternity but first we have to learn the language……

Experiencing JK on another level

This journal has been what I was seeking. As I am in that space between the “real” world and what is deep within me which creates opportunities for confusion, Krishnamurti’s journal came at a profound moment. When seeking answers within yet dealing with the chaos of the outside, having someone to guide you through was a blessing. Thank you so much for this wonderous gift!!
