About the work
Krishnamurti kept a diary at various dates between September 1973 and April 1975, while he was staying at Brockwood Park, Rome and California. As was the case with his earlier Notebook, he did not give any particular reason for the keeping of this journal which (also like the Notebook) started and ended suddenly.
His biographer Mary Lutyens stated in foreword that Krishnamurti wrote "with a clarity that shows how vivid is his memory for natural scenery, arising from the acuteness of his observation. This journal also reveals to what an extent his teaching is inspired by his closeness to nature." The diary is notable for it being written in the third person, and it has apparently inspired at least one published poem.
