Mary Zimbalist was Jiddu Krishnamurti’s assistant, traveling companion, hostess, and the person closest to him since his brother died in 1925. Krishnamurti asked her to write about what it was like to be with him. From Krishnamurti’s death in 1986 until her own in 2008, she worked diligently and continuously at doing this, using her extraordinary daily dairies as her source. She never finished her book, but this beautifully written testimonial to a remarkable man conveys a sense of him and their relationship that is unequaled. It is unfinished, but it is not incomplete.

The cover of In the Presence of Krishnamurti is so wonderful with Mary beaming at K as they enjoy their mutual affection for that kitten and for each other. The choosing of the photographs for both books is so sensitive and apropos of every aspect of both volumes.” – Reader from USA

This book is a very important document, along with Mary’s diary.  There are only a few books about K that give us any real insight into who and what this energy was and these are at the top of the list.” – Reader from France

..Mary’s book will last as long as Krishnaji’s Teachings will last. No serious student of the Teachings would be only interested in the Teachings and not the man himself.” – Reader from USA
