This volume presents an eyewitness account of the practical and everyday relations of the Mark Lee with Krishnamurti (1895–1986) who was a prolific author as well as a renowned and respected educator, and speaker. Such relations reveal warmth and closeness, leading to a deep understanding of some of the unexplained mysteries surrounding the man and his teachings.

Mark Lee was first introduced to Krishnamurti’s teachings as a teenager in 1955 and to Krishnamurti himself in 1965. For the next 45 years he worked in the Krishnamurti foundations as teacher, principal, director, and trustee in succession. It was Krishnamurti’s compelling and engaging admonition to ‘be a light unto yourself’ that kept Lee associated with the work of the foundations — a serious challenge — that called for inner discipline, austerity in thinking and living, and rigorous self-awareness. Krishnamurti was associated with several schools in India, England, and the USA from the late 1920s onwards. Five nonprofit foundations were established by him and continue to preserve and disseminate his teachings globally.

For students of Krishnamurti’s teachings, Lee’s experiences can serve an informative and useful source of further learning and education.

This is not a cookbook: it is a simple, unpretentious, and affectionate portrayal of J. Krishnamurti in his everyday life by a man who was his cook for over a decade. Henri Methorst was an early publisher of Krishnamurti's works in Europe, and a translator of his talks and writing for many years. Here he provides both a memoir of time with Krishnamurti and the people and organizations around Krishnamurti, and observations on what makes Krishnamurti's message radical.

"Krishnamurti offers no easy solutions. His insights are not comfortable. He does, however, go immediately to the heart of the matter. By explaining the nature of thought and its relationship to time and fear, he offers a vision of liberation in its purest form."

For readers interested in a first-hand account adding to the history of Krishnamurti's work and publications, and personal reflections on the radical nature of Krishnamurti's message.
