9780144000357: The Other Side of Belief: Interpreting U.G.Krishnamurti

"Trapped between a dead past and an unborn future, the human animal has, since the dawn of time, asked these two questions - 'Who am I?' and 'Why am I here?' These are the questions which propelled the author to the doors of the most subversive man in human history - U.G. Krishnamurti. And the outcome of that encounter is this exceptional book." - From the Foreword by Mahesh Bhatt. "The Other Side of Belief: Interpreting U.G. Krishnamurti" is a candid and refreshing chronicle of UG's life and the evolution of his radical outlook and ideas. Tracing the development of UG's notion of enlightenment as a series of biological mutations devoid of mystical or religious connotations, Mukunda Rao weaves a complex portrait - of a man who doesn't hesitate to challenge and demolish society's most cherished and comforting values and ideals, but nonetheless commands a most fervent respect and veneration from multitudes of admirers. UG has always been adamant that life must be described in pure and simple physical and physiological terms so that it is depsychologized and demystified.

He underwent, in his own words, a 'calamity': a series of bodily metamorphoses that catapulted him into the unique state of the 'declutched' mind. This book gives the reader a vivid description of UG's 'cellular revolution' and an intensely personal insight into UG's unflinching and relentless insistence on freedom from the 'stranglehold of thought'. With a foreword by Mahesh Bhatt, film-maker and lifelong admirer of UG, "The Other Side of Belief" offers a searching exploration of the incredible charisma of a man who has transformed the lives of people all over the world.
