The Lies About Truth

Karl Renz (Author) Manjit Achhra (Editor)

The truth which can be spoken is, for sure, not the truth. Truth is never beautiful and beauty is never true. Thats the first premise in Tao, says Karl. For someone who summarily dismisses any possibility of anyone ever knowing truth, its a wonder that this guy Karl is still in business-seasoned seekers forever longing to listen to him and not getting enough of it!

I am just answering unnecessary questions with unnecessary answers, 'I cannot give you anything nor can I take anything away from you, he says. Its perhaps the un-self-consciousness of his utterances, delivered with electric, unaffected ease that buries the listeners intellect and most cherished concepts into a quicksand of spontaneous laughter. Seriousness gets challenged here-seriously!

Many spiritual veterans will warn you against the dangerous Karl since he ruthlessly bulldozes any and every truth you may want to cozy up to. Relentlessly kicking the knower where it hurts most-at the core of knowingness itself - Karl precipitates an existential crisis. So, dont be surprised if Karls prattle, bereft of prescription or intent, abruptly stops you dead in your tracks only to, in the words of the Sage Jnaneshwar, 'see yourself without the aid of a mirror!'

About the author

Karl Renz

Mind loves new concepts for they provide a cosy terra firma - a comfortable landing place. Of late 'Peace' has been one of the famous landing places for spiritual seekers. There are infinite techniques of how to be at peace with oneself... Meditation... celebration... renunciation...

Sure enough, Karl comes around questioning the one who wants to be in peace With compelling insights, the one looking for peace is then seen in a new light... as the source of misery. 

Karl's koan-like expressions are truly mind-bending - the resultant frustration of the mind tripping over its own concepts is a telltale sign of the one trying to understand.

What it all boils down to is this: when the most famous idea of being at peace is challenged - what remains?

Let's just say that the one trying to be peaceful is in for a fine round of walloping!
