The Unrational Ideas of a Man Called U.G.
Edited by: Rodney Arms
Third Edition, with a foreword by Mahesh Bhatt, Published by: Sahasranama Prakashana
[email:rgmehendale@yahoo.com] Bangalore, INDIA. 2001.

The search ends with the realization that there is no such thing as enlightenment. By
searching, you want to be free from the self, but whatever you are doing to free yourself
from the self is the self. How can I make you understand this simple thing? There is no
'how'. If I tell you that, it will only add more momentum to that....--U.G.

In the first chapter (calledU.G.) of the book U.G. talks about his background, his
'calamity', and its aftermath. The other three chapters are: The Mystique of
Enlightenment, No Power Outside of Manand Betwixt Bewilderment and
The Mystique of Enlightenment:
The unrational ideas of a man called U.G.
Inner Flap

Here is perhaps the most straightforward, no-nonsense book yet written about that truth
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' 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. U.G.'s 'talks' are informal and take
place wherever he happens to be. He is no relation to J. Krishnamurti, the famous spiritual
leader, whose teachings he once admired, and now considers 'archaic hogwash'. He is
probably the most controversial of all the experts in such matters, gurus or non-gurus. He has
been called 'outrageous', 'infuriating,'" and a 'prophet of anti-wisdom'.

The Mystique of Enlightenment is a new, unique, invaluable roadside companion for all those on the 'path' or thinking of setting out on it. It tells the inside story of a man who knows the 'holy business' from the ground up, and who reveals in a frank and direct manner how he became 'free' not because of, but despite, a lifetime of spiritual practice.
