The Mystique of Enlightenment: The unrational ideas of a man called U.G. is perhaps the most straightforward, no-nonsense book yet written about that truth which many ‘spiritual seekers’ are seeking – what most gurus call ‘enlightenment’ or ‘spiritual liberation’, and what U.G. Krishnamurti calls the ‘natural state’. U.G. maintains, in this selection from his conversations, that ‘so-called enlightenment’ is a purely biological phenomenon, that only when we are completely free of culture, conditioning, religious thinking, and intellect, can the body, with its own ‘extraordinary intelligence’, free the human being to be in the natural state. U.G. has been living in this state since the experience he calls the “calamity” happened to him in Switzerland on his 49th birthday. He has since become widely known, both in Europe and in India, as one who speaks with authority on the subject.
“I don’t give people what they want. When they realize they will not get what they want here, they invariably go away. As they are leaving for the last time I like to add the rider, ‘You won’t get it anywhere.'” – U.G. Krishnamurti
U.G.’s ‘talks’ are informal and take place wherever he happens to be. He has no relation to J. Krishnamurti. Thanks to Sajid Mahmood for pointing me in this direction, please keep me updated. Download the ebook here (127 pages):
