The Beauty of the Mountain: Memories of Krishnamurti
These memories of Jiddu Krishnamurti encompass the last three years of his life during which Mr. Grohe had personal interaction with him. In the preface to his book Grohe writes, "I encountered a great many people who were keenly interested to know how he lived his everyday life. This is why I would like to record here a number of seemingly insignificant events which yet may convey that this extraordinary human being did indeed live the so-called 'Teachings'."

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.
