Overview for The Other Side of Belief: Interpreting U.G. Krishnamurti

Described as the thinker who shuns thought, U.G. Krishnamurti is the most enigmatic and iconoclastic "anti-guru of our times. His conviction that doubt is the other side of belief emerged from an uncompromising negation of everything that can be expressed, not from a desire for some "comfy dialectical thesis. 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 doesnt 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 de-psychologized 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 though. 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.
