Protected: Brutal Beginnings by The Ruthless Arena

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.

The Bitter Book of Anger by Manflesh

The Bitter Book of Anger by Manflesh is hard to get a hold on. It starts out citing the author himself: “Enlightenment is just something unenlightened people made up,” and it goes on following a 70-year old zen-guru´s travel through USA and Mexico. This book is different, read it for fun or for the sake […]

Beyond Violence by J Krishnamurti

Beyond Violence by J Krishnamurti is a collection of public talks and discussions Krishnamurti held in the  USA in the  1970s.

Mind is a Myth – Disquieting conversations with a man called U.G.

Mind is a Myth is last of the three available books transcribed from talks with U.G. Krishnamurti. The first pages outline his extraordinary life and his calamity  as he calls the all-changing transformation that took place on his 47th birthday: “U.G. ceased to act any longer via the separative thought structure. A bit of energy entered his […]

Clarity by Nathan Gill

Clarity is the short autobiography by Nathan Gill wherein he describes his spiritual search and non-dramatic awakening. From the book: “There does not need to be any kind of ‘event’ associated with the recognition of our true nature. Well, as it happened, in September 1998 an event arose. I was gardening and the rain was […]

Thought is your Enemy – Mind-shattering Conversations with a Man called U.G

Thought is your Enemy – Mind-shattering Conversations with a Man called U.G. This quote caught my interest: “Is there any such thing as happiness? I would say, no. So, the quest for happiness is a cultural input, and that is the common desire that we know exists everywhere, in every part of the world. That […]

The Mystique of Enlightenment: The unrational ideas of a man called U.G.

The Mystique of Enlightenment: The unrational ideas of a man called U.G. is perhaps the most straightforward, no-nonsense book yet written about that truth which many ‘spiritual seekers’ are seeking – what most gurus call ‘enlightenment’ or ‘spiritual liberation’, and what U.G. Krishnamurti calls the ‘natural state’. U.G. maintains, in this selection from his conversations, that […]

Brutal Beginnings

The rebels of enlightenment over at the forum/blog RuthlessTruth.com have for some months worked with some new and radical approaches to free people from the veil of Samsara. Their work are truly impressive and fresh. Their main idea is to get people in a large scale to understand that there is no “I”, and seeing this fact is […]

I Am That by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

I Am That by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. The forms around us, says Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, are constituted of the five elements. They are transient and in a state of perpetual flux. Also, they are governed by the law of causation. All this applies to the body and the mind also, both of which are transient […]

The Real Way to Awakening by Chao Khun Sobhana Dammasudhi

The Teaching of the Buddha contains the solution to all problems involving self-discipline and detachment from greed, hatred and self-delusion, but Insight Meditation has always been the only way to perceive both the problem, and the solution, for oneself. The Buddha used to tell his followers, ‘ Here is a tree (or other sheltered spot). […]

Heart, Diamond and Lankavatara Sutras

The Heart Sutra is a member of the Perfection of Wisdom (Prajñāpāramitā) class of Mahāyāna Buddhist literature, and along with the Diamond Sutra, is perhaps the most prominent representative of the genre. Its Sanskrit name Prajñāpāramitā Hṛdaya literally translates to the “Heart of the Perfection of Transcendent Wisdom.” From the book: Since in emptiness nothing […]
