The Best of UG

March 27, 2010

In the height and heat of his flared up conversations with people around him, UG suddenly breaks a pause by waking up Robert Carr, calling him, ‘Bob, come on!’ UG’s pausing or High Moments of UG Gathering: [PhotoAlbum] (Bangalore 22 Mar 2010)balming bell in Bob on the Best of UG DVDbetween his heated conversations with people around was his favourite call: ‘Bob!’ Yes, the other day (on 22 Mar 2010) the admirers and friends of UG from India and other parts of the world gathered at Chandrasekhar’s residence or rather ‘UG place’, in Bangalore. There I glanced at this guy – this Bob (Robert Carr) is really a ‘live bomb’, still living or looking like a 16 or 17 even in his 70s or more – one of the closest associates of UG from the US, now happily batting or living in Mumbai, it seems. At last Bob (Robert Carr) has paid a rich tribute to his ‘barking master’ by bringing out a DVD that contains mind-shattering conversations with UG Krishnamurti, which got released on this occasion with much applause.

About this DVD:
Title:
The Best of UG
Description:
‘This DVD contains mind-shattering conversations with UG Krishanmurti.’

In 1995, UG spoke with a variety of spiritual seekers, self-styled gurus, teachers and just ordinary people from all over the world. The collection of nineteen interviews presented in this DVD offers the viewer a unique look into UG’s insights into life and living. They have been edited in Mumbai, India in 2009.

And a UG quote:
‘Thought is the self-protecting and fascist in nature, and it will use every trick under the sun to give momentum to its own continuity. Thought controls, moulds and shapes our ideas and actions. Thought is not the instrument to help us live in harmony with life around us. That is why we create all these ecological problems such as pollution, possibly destroying ourselves with the destructive weapons that we have invented.’

Acknowledgements:
Over the past twenty years, several persons have worked selflessly and silently to record UG’s conversations with people in different parts of the world. I wish to thank the following friends: The Late Terry New Land, Raj Mehta, Julie Thayer, Andy Neddermeyer, Narayana Moorty, Kunal Sharma, Abhishek Sharma, Ghanashyam (Sam), Mahesh Bhatt and Paul Arms for their help in this production. The recording sessions were unrehearsed and spontaneous, resulting in a reflection of UG’s natural state.

Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘foreword’ to this book:

Whether it is happy or unhappy, hopeful or devastating, the ending brings the story to what it itself is … the inevitable, the complete end.

K. Chandrasekhar: Lost in Our Tracks, 2nd seriesOn a quiet afternoon of March 14, 2007, in Vallecrosia, a quaint town in Italy, on the coast of the Mediterranean, Babu Chandrsekhar’s guiding light and the love of life, UG Krishnamurti, shouted out an order, “Leave now and get on with your life,’ said the light. “I want to die the way I lived … all alone, with no one looking over me.”

Babu Chndrasekhar was devastated, but he has also sensed that the end was near. Thus, he began the process of wrenching himself away from his own heartbet. He prepared himself to break away from someone with whom he had spent more than three intense decades of his life, and who was not only the basis of his very existence but was also enshrined in his heart.

I still remember vivdly what Babu did after hearing UG’s command. He broke into Sanskrit shlokas, sat down at UG’s feet. Then touchng his feet, Babu prostrated his entire being before him as only a true devotee or lover would do. When he got up he looked closely at UG as if he were absorbing him completely in that one long look. Then turning his heel, Babu left the room where his master lived, never to return again.

As I led Babu out of the villa, where UG spent his last days, I can clerly recall the words I spoke to him, “This is death Babu, the end of your love story …” but little did I know that a love story like theirs never ends. I am not sure why, but whenever I think of the love story of Babu and UG I am reminded of Abu Bakr and Prophet Mohammed.

The story goes that when Abu Bakr saw the Prophet of God lying dead, he uncovered the mantle of the Yamani cloth that covered the Prophet’s face and, kissing his forehead, said, “You are dearer than my father and mother. You have tasted the death which God had decreed, but oh Mohammed, a second death will never overtake you. You will never die again.” And how right he was, because the emptiness which was created in the life of Abu Bakr with the passing away of his Master, could only be filled with the evangelistic fervour with which he went about spreading his word.

Chandrasekhar reads out from his book, Lost in our Tracks, 2ndStopped In Our Tracks, Series Two, originates from the same impulse. In this fascinating document, K Chandrasekhar has spun honey out of his encounters with UG. Whenever he was overwhelmed with UG’s crazy wisdom or became shattered by his own sheer subversive behaviour, he documented it in a diary, which he has now generously made available to all of us. Indeed, this book to savour and read over and over again, because it is from the heart of a man who has bent low enough to hear the voice of his God.

Also the following new books have been released on this occasion:

(1) A Book on UG in Bengali by Dr Guha, a close associate of UG.
(2) Hindi version book of Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘A Taste of Life’
(3) Another book got released on this occasion: ‘Self Realization: With Special Reference to UG’ by Mr. Satya Simha*. [Note:* The late Satya Simha had in fact been doing the Ph.D. on UG from Mysore University, and had worked half way till his (Satya Simha) untimely death that happened in 2008; so the present book is the outcome of the works he had done in this regard, not necessarily the completed work, and is brought posthumously.]
(4) The German Book of UG’s ‘Mind is A Myth’, tranaslated by Daniel (Note: A copy of this new book was sent all the way from Germany to K. Chandrasekhar just to get released on this unique occasion.)

Biology of Enlightenment:

Mukunda Rao with UG, but UG was not in that body!Another interesting happening is that Mukunda Rao has taken great pains and drilling works to dig into the tapes of UG conversations (of 90 plus hours duration altogether) that were for decades remained stranded or locked up with some UG friends. Now the tapes got unlocked and thanks to Mr. K. Chandrasekhar’s concern and siren, Mukunda Rao has successfully completed the ‘transcription’ work of these rare UG tapes recorded some where down the lines and the recorded words of UG in those tapes have gone into a metamorphic process in the unbiased scholastic hands of Mukunda Rao and soon the resultant book titled, ‘The Biology of Enlightenment’ may hit the lights of the world now. May more and more UG ghosts haunt the world there!

Thanks to Mrs. Suguna and Mr Chandrasekhar – they never stop or feel tired of spreading the ‘fragrance’ they received from the very ‘monster mouth’ of that God.

UG: ‘Never Make Me A Religious Man’

March 24, 2010

The last thing UG wanted to happen is: creating a ‘religious UG’. He bombarded, he begged even in his death bed that‘Your body is interested only in two things – survival and fucking (procreation), and the rest is your culture shit or accumulated knowledge shit.’
-UG
 he should never be painted with any ‘religious shits’. UG lived it, UG stood for it even in the face of his death. Undo GodIn an otherwise sense of paradox, UG stands rather, for ‘Useless Guy’ as well as ‘Undoing God’. The essence of UG is as simple as that. UG always used to blast the whole deceptions of ‘religions and A sage is like a raging fire that burns everything and it knows not what is god or good or bad, and the ‘life’ stands there untouched and naked, roaring with all force.sermons’ with one sarcastic but very true line: ‘your body is interested only in two things – survival and fucking (procreation), and the rest is your culture shit or accumulated knowledge shit.’ There may be a pool of a bunch of scholastic twisters or a simple bunch of religious soldiers to relate and collate UG with / to Vedanta and such other holy religious ghosts – but UG never fits there and again it is an act of creating a ‘holy persona’ of UG, which the world has been doing from generation to generation. Hope, it should never happen with UG. UG always stands there naked. No one has a right to paint him. Naked UG is more beautiful than a painted UG.

A sage is like a raging fire that burns everything and it knows not what is god or good or bad, and finally or firstly Naked UG is more beautiful than a painted UG.the ‘life’ stands there “I am blocking every escape. Each outlet has to be blocked to put you in a corner. You must be choked to death, as it were. Only a real teacher can find that out and tell you, nobody else. Not those people who interpret the texts; all that is totally unrelated. Only such a man can talk. And such a man never encourages you because he knows that if this kind of thing has to happen to somebody, that person will not need the help of anybody. In spite of everything it will happen.”
– UG
untouched and naked, roaring with all force. UG never fits into any ‘descriptions’. UG is neither a theist nor an atheist. UG never fits into any labels or frames, rather he is an undefined flame. Even if we paint UG, a ghost of the species of UG is bound to create more havoc and holocaust there from that frame. UG is just UG. May the naked UG remain there to be watched by the generations to come. If it is not possible to ‘destroy’ or ‘demolish’ UG, the least and best thing to do is to keep the ‘naked’ UG there, not the painted one.


Nityanandas and Mythyanandas: Sexploitations

March 14, 2010

Our Nityanadas and Mythyandas preach spirituality Sex Solaceand moksha bliss3000 Sex Abuse Cases by the Catholic Priests
The cases of sex abuse or sex scandals are not unusual and they are the very ‘born cousins’ of almost all of our religions and the institutions. For example, a recent Vatican News reported that over 3000 sex abuse cases, including child molestation cases, have been reviewed by the Pope in the past nine years, some cases dating back even 50 years. Of course, this is the ‘vatican officially’ reported case figure; God alone knows how many of His Catholic Priests indulge or indulged in sex abuse ‘blissful’ acts. An interesting article on ‘Catholic Sex Abuse Cases’ there on Wikipedia.
 in day light and as the night comes they indulge into the reality of their bliss source: sex. Better these phoney Nityanandas and Gurus start preaching that sex is the only solace and sex is no sin. Have they ‘guts’ to do that? No. Under the holy shadows of Bible, Quaran, Gita, Veda, Vedanta, Upanishad, these so called pretending to be ‘enlightened’ gurus try to satiate their ‘sex’ greed. These gurus are really misleading and derailing the precious life of our gullible people, in the name of ‘turia’, ‘enlightenment’, ‘eternal bliss’, ‘samadhi’ and many other false sacred shits, which never existed in the first place. Through this ‘spiritual business’ these gurus earn themselves an easy but undeserved respect, holy soul status, name and fame, money and luxury, serving followers and disciples to carry their glory even after their death. What else is needed?

UG puts it in an interesting way:
‘Prostitutes are the only people who deliver the goods’ and the ‘Holy business is the only business where you can get away without delivering any goods’.

The recent sex scandal news of one Swami Paramahamsa Nityanda [LINK] is in fact no news at all – now a days it has become so routine and frequent; and it is time to relook and re-reflect on God and Spirituality. Many comments were made on this site, even earlier also on this so called enlightened guru: Swami Paramhamsa Nityanda.

Even the Gods’ own food could not protect the ancient Egyptian priests from killing

February 26, 2010

Mummy Tummy FeastAn interesting rare insight-giving research article published in a recent issue of The Lancet may shed some amazing startling lights on ‘the gods, feasts, foods and rituals’ – all directly linked to the arteries and diseases among the ancient Egyptian priests. Now they say atherosclerosis – a blocked arteries disease – is no more a 20th century disease, but ‘history revisiting us’, to put it more appropriately.

The scientists studied the temple inscriptions and descriptions (not prescriptions!) encrypted or depicted on the walls of the ancient ‘There is unequivocal evidence to show that atherosclerosis is a disease of ancient times.’
Professor Tony Heagerty, Cardiovascular Research Group, Manchester University
Egyptian temples that listed out the food itinerary or menus of the rich ritual foods or feasts offered to the Gods by the ancient priests. At the end of the day of ritual (everybody knows the Gods could not or did not eat the foods or feasts offered to them, but the priests till today go on offering more and more rich foods to the Gods, but we do not know why?), the priests grabbed, packed all the rich ritual foods and carried home and they and their families ate the same together with grand fervors and celebrations to their hearts content. It is revealed Professor Rosalie David, an egyptologist from the University of Manchester, said:
“There couldn’t be a more evocative message: live like a god and you will pay with your health.”
that these ‘god meals’ were of beef, goose, bread, fruit, vegetables, cake, wine and beer, offered three times a day. To arrive at the conclusion, the scientists scanned and studied the arteries of priests’ mummified remains and found that many had blocked arteries – a clear link between the rich ritual foods and the artery disease.

The Very Happiness is the Hindrance

November 10, 2009

Who told you to be happy? There is no illusion greater than happiness. Happiness can neither happen, Happiness Persona nor one can attain it – you can only play and dream around ‘perfect happiness’, postponing the very gift of life. Life killers like philosophers, fiction-peddlers, spiritual messiahs may only vainly talk and write volumes and volumes of profound but never found thing called ‘happiness’. Life knows no happiness; life knows no unhappiness. Life has nothing to do with toys like happiness and unhappiness. Life is so self-expressing and flowing, it doesn’t need anything. Life is never short of anything.

All the so called hocus-pocus circuses, spiritual Popular ideas about happiness are misleading, inaccurate and are directly contributing to our current epidemic of stress, anxiety and depression. And unfortunately, popular psychological approaches are making it even worse!
– Dr Russ Harris
messiah techniques and sadhanas are at best mere phoney pebbles before the very face of life force. Our phoney spiritual gurus have perfectly polluted the humanity and this world beyond repair, and now it is business as usual for them. In a sense, a terrorist act is more fresh, fragrant and action-exploded, more live and life-friendly – it may shake life; but the so called ‘appears-to-be’ life-friendly sermons of attaining the unattainable ‘eternal freedom and bliss’ from our spiritual and philosopher messiahs are the worst kind of and most severe terrible blows to life force, ever played on this earth. Hard to see or speak, but it is the stark reality.

We say, ‘a flower is beautiful’. Flower cares nothing, it just does its job and forgoes. We say, ‘sun-rise there is beautiful’. Sun cares nothing, it just does its job and goes on. We say, ‘a bird is beautiful’. The bird doesn’t care anything, it just flies here and there; grubs on some nuts or fruits or worms, and fucks and freaks out, when it feels like it. That’s all life. Life is innocent, simple and mere survival, and there is not an iota of eternal or holy sermon in it.


A Taste of Life by Mahesh Bhatt – excerpt

June 10, 2009

Yes, it’s released now! Here’s the video clip of the launch of the much awaited Mahesh Bhatt’s book, A TASTE OF LIFE: THE LAST DAYS OF UG, on YouTube. You may listen to some of the excerpts of this strange book straight from the ‘monster mouth’ of Mahesh:

Book on ‘UG’ my most defining work: Mahesh Bhatt

Here are some of the excerpts of expressions made by Mahesh Bhatt, in the context of the release of his bigger than life dream book on UG – ‘A Taste of Life’, as given under the news item link: http://sify.com/movies/fullstory.php?id=14893340

“It was like fire—lava—coming out of my belly on the paper. The book was not an exercise in flashing my writing skills, it was a sense of awe and wonder that drove me to write the book.”

“This is the most defining work of my life, even bigger than my movies.”

“He (UG) was like a blossom in the wilderness which bloomed, withered and then crumbled—the one that was there on a universal plane and yet not there—kind of ephemeral.”

“UG, the anti-guru who deconstructed the myth about men playing gods, was like a wildflower who chose to die unsung.”

“What struck me was UG’s simplicity and honesty that stripped spirituality of its divine pretences.”

UG used to say ‘I am not a godman, I would rather be called a fraud’.

“I had the privilege to be with him in life witnessing his staggering experiences and even in death which I describe as the taste of life because it removed the morbidity that one associates with death like the wind blowing on a landscape where bloom and decay were all one.”

“On the morning of March 22, I saw thousands of black ants marching in a line on the white carpet, up the white sofa and on UG’s stone-like face where they spread out and completely darkened the left side. There were thousands of them moving with the frantic intensity of life. I remembered someone asking him some time ago what the ants were doing in his room. UG had replied they were ‘coming for me’…”
