The Mystique of Enlightenment:The unrational ideas of a man calledU.G. 
Inner Flap 
Here is perhaps the most straightforward, no-nonsense book yet written about thattruth which many 'spiritual seekers' are seeking - what most gurus call'enlightenment', and what U.G. Krishnamurti calls the 'natural state'. U.G.maintains, in this selection from his conversations, that 'so-called enlightenment' isa 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" happenedto 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.U.G.'s 'talks' are informal and take place wherever he happens to be. He is norelation to J. Krishnamurti, the famous spiritual leader, whose teachings he onceadmired, and now considers 'archaic hogwash'. He is probably the mostcontroversial of all the experts in such matters, gurus or non-gurus. He has beencalled 'outrageous', 'infuriating,'" and a 'prophet of anti-wisdom'.
The Mystique of Enlightenment is a new, unique, invaluable roadside companionfor all those on the 'path' or thinking of setting out on it. It tells the inside story of aman who knows the 'holy business' from the ground up, and who reveals in a frankand direct manner how he became 'free' not because of, but despite, a lifetime ofspiritual practice.
