UG Series 2

The 'Natural State' is acausal; it just happens.

The so called self-realization is the discovery for yourself and by yourself that there is no self to discover. That will be a very shocking thing because it's going to blast every nerve, every cell, even the cells in the marrow of your bones.

Consciousness is so pure that whatever you are doing in the direction of purifying that consciousness is adding impurity to it.

There is no sadhana necessary, no purification methods necessary for this kind of a thing to happen - no preparation of any kind.

Thought is in its birth, in its origin, in its expression and in its actions very fascist. When I use the word 'fascist' I do not use it in the polictical sense but to mean that it controls and shapes our thinking and our actions.

Thought is something dead and can never touch anything living. It cannot capture life, contain it, and give expression to it. The moment it tries to touch life it is destroyed by the quality of life.

All the political ideologies and even the legal structures are the wartyoutgrowths of the religious thinking of man.

All that is necessary for the survival of this living organism is already there. The tremendous intelligence of the body is no match for all that we have gathered and acquired through our intellect.

Messiah is the one who leaves a mess behind him in this world.

The human organism is not interested in your wonderful religious ideas--peace, bliss, beatitude or any such thing. Its only interest is survival. What society has placed before us as the goal to reach and attain is the enemy of this living organism.

As a human body it is an extraordinary piece of creation. But as a human being he is rotten because of the culture.

Stop thinking and start living.

Cabbages are more alive than human beings.

Knowledge creates experience and experience strengthens the knowledge. This is a vicious circle

There is no such thing as 'knowledge' for the sake of knowledge. Knowledge is power. "I know. You don't know".

It is the body that is immortal. It is living from moment to moment.

God is the figment of man's fertile imagination.

This body doesn't want to learn anything. Left to itself it has tremendous intelligence.

You are more useful to the Nature dead than alive.

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)

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.
