The renowned spiritual thinker presents a provocative challenge to seekers and cynics alike in this collection of fascinating conversations.
From an early age, U. G. Krishnamurti sought spiritual enlightenment, until he not only gave up the search, but challenged the very principles it is based on. In so doing, he became one of the most unusual, insightful, and sought-after speakers on the subject. This volume of his conversations with the constant stream of people who go to visit him offers a refreshing, radical, and unconventional appraisal of the entire human enterprise.

For those who have grown weary of the search and have developed a well-tempered skepticism, this little volume may prove invaluable. “Is there actually anything like freedom, enlightenment or liberation behind all the abstractions the religions have thrown at us?” U. G. asks.
U.G. bears directly into the heart of matters, presenting his case simply, fearlessly, forcefully, and without corroboration, to any who wishes to listen. He asks “Is there actually anything like freedom, enlightenment or liberation behind all the abstractions the religions have thrown at us?”
