Description
About the Author

I wrote it [Krishnamurti's Notebook] as a diary while I was travelling... but I did not write it for publication. I describe what I call the process-my sensation of being outside the ordinary world, of being completely at peace and removed from conflict. This happens only from time to time and clearly it is impossible to describe to anybody who has not experienced it. But I have attempted to put into words the actual pain and sensation which goes with the heightened consciousness. It is not intended in a romantic way: if you lead a certain type of disciplined, quiet life, you release a kind of energy-that's a scientific fact-and this affects the non-mechanical part of your brain so that you enter into a new dimension. The physical organism is incapable of meeting it and so you get the pain. I am not suggesting that everyone should try to attain this. but it may be of interest to some people who have followed my thoughts and ideas to know what happens on a more personal level. -J. Krishnamurti (interview with The Guardian)

Foreword

When Krishnamurti's Notebook was first published in 1976 the manuscript from which the typescript was prepared consisted of 323 pages handwritten and numbered by Krishnamurti. It was thought at the time that this was the complete collection of the pages written by Krishnamurti in that series in his notebooks. However, in 2000, thirty-two additional pages, in Krishnamurti's original handwriting, were found in archival material that had been recovered by Krishnamurti Foundation of America in Ojai in the 1980s. These pages followed on directly from the original pages by date and by Krishnamurti's own page numbering sequence. It is not known how these pages came to be separated from the rest. These entries, dated from January 24th, 1962, to March 19th, 1962, are the last pages in this new edition.

In her Foreword to the first edition, Mary Lutyens wrote that Krishnamurti had not kept such a record before or since. However, after Krishnamurti's Notebook was published, she learned that Krishnamurti did keep a diary from September 1973 to April 1975; this was published as Krishnamurtis Journal in 1982, and in 1983 he made a unique "notebook" by speaking into a tape recorder as he sat by himself in the mornings. This was published in 1987 as Krishnamurti to Himself. Mumbai, Chennai, and Varanasi are the names now used for the cities in India once known as Bombay, Madras, and Benares, respectively. The latter names, used in Krishnamurti's lifetime, are retained in the Notebook for historical reasons.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
