In September 1973, Krishnamurti suddenly started keeping a journal. For nearly six weeks he made daily entries in a notebook. Nearly every entry starts with a description of some natural scene, which he knows intimately. He recalls places he has lived in with a clarity that shows how vivid his memory is for natural scenery, arising from the acuteness of his observation.
Krishnamurti's Journal gives an intimate look at one of the great spiritual teachers of our time. Writing simply, directly, yet in richly poetic prose, Krishnamurti shares observations and meditations, which he wrote in this diary from 1973 to 1975.

Jiddu Krishnamurti lived from 1895 to 1986, and is regarded as one of the greatest philosophical and spiritual figures of the twentieth century. Krishnamurti claimed no allegiance to any caste, nationality or religion and was bound by no tradition. His purpose was to set humankind unconditionally free from the destructive limitations of conditioned mind. For nearly sixty years he traveled the world and spoke spontaneously to large audiences until the end of his life in 1986 at the age of ninety. He had no permanent home, but when not traveling, he often stayed in Ojai, California, Brockwood Park, England, and in Chennai, India. In his talks, he pointed out to people the need to transform themselves through self knowledge, by being aware of the subtleties of their thoughts and feelings in daily life, and how this movement can be observed through the mirror of relationship.
