This book was transcribed from early conversations following UG's "calamity." His calamity is how he described the biological mutation of every cell in his body resulting in his entire thought system being completely purged from his system. Following that he experienced no thought at all and only needed to speak if spoken to. This book goes into that and much more as those questioning him attempt to understand what can only be described as un-understandable within the contex of the egoic based self centered mind. According to UG there is only one question and one answer. To continue to question means that we did not truly hear the answer. If fact, all questions are the same question and all answers that do not put an end to all questions are not answers at all but just the on going process of asking the same question over and over again. In my mind, such questions are merely the on going reincarnation, if you will, of the same question until we eventually tire of asking and hear the one amd only answer that we have been avoiding all along.

Nothing I can say will relate to you the immense quality of the words contained in this book. In my humble opinion it is a must have for anyone truly pursuing the Natural State, enlightenment, or whatever you want to call it.

U.G. Krishnamurti finishes once and for all the mystic-religious aproach of such satate called "enlightenment". It is a biological profound change of the human body, a state were the sense of self is anihilated, so that the human being functions in a "natural" way. For those readers not familiar with some understanding of the philosophy and religion of India, it may sound redundant, yet U.G. has no other means of explaining a state of counsciousness that can not be explained. A fascinating narrative that gives us a different view of a state of being more close to a biological mutation that state of grace bestowed by a divine entity. Highly recomendable.
