List in chronological order

Below is a list of all original Darshan Diaries in chronological order. The "notes & extras" column relates to material from published Darshan Diaries which is not included in the CD-ROM: interviews, long "guest editorials", plus notes about anomalies, etc.
Many of the earliest Darshan Diaries have unsigned introductions. It is is not known but likely that these are all or mostly written by Ma Prem Maneesha, the chief editor of the series.
Some sixteen Darshan Diaries were not published in hard copy, only in the CD-ROM, and in some cases, information such as dates and names were lost. These cases are marked with **, linking to special pages which attempt to reconstruct the missing info.
Column * no. is the number as counted for all known darshan diaries and their dates.
Column ** no. is the number as mentioned in the book itself.
