U G Series 1

U G Krishnamurti passed away on March 22, 2007 at 2.30 pm in Italy. This blogger is running a series of his pictures and words in his honor( how I hate this word). UG was a dynamite- a dangerous man to listen to. He gives you nightmares and is a self declared terrorist of the mind.

All the quotations are courtesy of UG himself, as he once said:

"My teaching, if that is the word you want to use, has no copyright. You are free to reproduce, distribute, interpret, misinterpret, distort, garble, do what you like, even claim authorship, without my consent or the permission of anybody.

Nature does not use anything as a model. It is only interested in perfecting the species. It is trying to create perfect species and not perfect beings.

We are not created for any grander purpose than the ants that are there or the flies that are hovering around us or the mosquitoes that are sucking our blood.

We are using the neurons, our memory, constantly to maintain our identity. Whether you are awake or asleep or dreaming, this process is carried on. But it is wearing you out. That is why I say that the tragedy that is facing mankind is not Aids or cancer but Alzheimer's disease.

It is fear that makes you believe that you are living and that you will be dead.What we do not want is the fear to come to an end. That is why we have invented all these new minds, new sciences,new talks, therapies, choiceless awareness and various other gimmicks. ug_4_013.jpg (59997 bytes)

Fear is the very thing that you do not want to be free from. If the fear comes to an end, you will drop dead physically. Clinical death will take place.

When you are no longer caught up in the dichotomy of right and wrong or good and bad, you can never do anything wrong. As long as you are caught up in this duality, the danger is that you will always do wrong.

clear2.gif (46 bytes) In nature there is no death or destruction at all. What occurs is the reshuffling of atoms. If there is a need or necessity to maintain the balance of 'energy' in this universe, death occurs. ug032.jpg (44752 bytes)
I don't give a hoot for a sixth-century B.C. Buddha, let alone all the other claimants we have in our midst. They are a bunch of exploiters, thriving on the gullibility of the people. ug_3_035.jpg (49621 bytes)
clear.gif (45 bytes)
clear2.gif (46 bytes) To be yourself requires extraordinary intelligence. You are blessed with that intelligence; nobody need give it to you; nobody can take it away from you. He who lets that express itself in its own way is a 'Natural Man'. ug018.jpg (26839 bytes)

It is an act of futility to relate my description to the way you are functioning. When you stop all this comparison, what is there is your Natural State. Then you will not listen to anybody. ug_4_034.jpg (36320 bytes)

A 'moral man' is a frightened man- chicken hearted man; that is why he practices morality and sits in judgement over others.

The body is not interested in anything you are interested in. And that is the battle that is going on all the time. ug034.jpg (57805 bytes)

Krishnamurti did not yearn for name in his later half of the life.

Oblivion was what he wanted. So only a few people knew about his death.

The plain fact is that if you don't have a problem, you create one. If you don't have a problem you don't feel that you are living..
