The Mystique of Enlightenment: Conversations with U.G. Krishnamurti

Front Cover
A no-nonsense book about that truth which many spiritual seekers are seeking, what gurus call "enlightenment," and what UG Krishnamurthi calls the "natural state." In this selection from his conversations, UG maintains that the so-called enlightenment is a purely biological phenomenon – that only when one is completely free of cultural conditioning, religious thinking, and intellect, can the body, with its own extraordinary intelligence, get free to be in the 'natural' state. This book is an invaluable roadside companion for all those on the path or thinking of setting out on it.

Jk had some kind of ' happening ' Ug has 'explosions ' so they are not ordinary humans like me for nothing like that has happened even after 30 years of search.Ug claims he is ordinary ,how can it be when nobody else has any 'explosion' happening .At the same time i cannot understand their languages of abstract either,but to them their language is clear and easy and simple.But it is evident that they both seem to be honest .But they are of no use to me ,an ordinary being.So am i doomed for life.I dont know when an explosion or the happening will occur so that i can see things as clearly as they used to.I am desperate .ANY HELP
