UG and more bullshit..

people go seeking gurus in life or somehow gurus happen to them. blind as these people are, the words and actions of the guru is what they follow. i tried my level best to refrain from passing judgement whatsoever here. but i couldn't stop myself from writing this.

if the belief system of these people is what they go by i.e. what drives them, what they follow and what happens to be their trust or faith, then they are too fragile. these very people are seen guru-hopping, based on how a certain guru can impress them. that's all they know. and that's what breeds this world of gurus. you never know whom to trust.

there is one such person who i happen to know of. not personally, but through a friend who had some video clips of this person. he never portrays himself as a guru, in fact is a much touted anti-guru fellow, doesn't wear robes nor does he have thousands attending his 'lectures'. his name is U G Krishnamurti, popularly known as UG. here is something more to read about him, and i suggest you read for yourself before evaluating my comments in this post about him. You can also browse this site for some more stuff about UG.

he does nothing publicly, all his beliefs are discussed about at either when some people go to his house or when he goes to someone's house. much the same way it happens with any other person on this earth. so what makes him so popular you'd ask? it is his dialogue delivery, which leaves people stumped. so whatever (bullshit) he would be giving, most of those who hear appear mesmerised. its but natural that such people who bear the capacity of getting 'mesmerised', will pay rapt attention when someone makes statements that will shake their belief system.

check out his audio or video tapes if you are interested in hearing how this anti-guru cusses well known gurus, thinkers like J Krishnamurthy (with whom he isn't related in any possible way). figure out for yourself? bullshit..

nopes. he isn't a guru himself. i guess i said that in the post, but maybe i did not make myself amply clear in this post though I gave URLs. follow them for more info on him.

he is counted as one of India's finest 'thinkers', however you want to read that term. he isn't interested in delivering lectures or something, but the way he thinks and speaks, people are interested in meeting him.

so he is a magnetic personality. Good.. I would rather talk bullshit with such people than some some mind stewing crap.

anti guru also contains guru right? If he does not have a message, why should he criticize others like buddha? There is a message in that also. You can sell positive philosphy and you can sell void or frustration. There is audience for everything if the packaging is right.
