Road to Insanity

Sabyasachi Guha, author of In the Company of U.G. Krishnamurti—14 Days in
Palm Springs
(Bengali) and translator of U.G. Krishnamurti, A Life by Mahesh Bhatt
into Bengali (originally translated for his mother), invites us to embrace our unique-
ness and to trust the dynamic processes which keep us alive and functioning so
that the “‘nature-induced order” pre-programmed at birth can unfold.

In Road to Insanity, Guha covers such issues as the relationship between “lapse
of time and space” and creative output, the importance of complete focus to pene-
trate deep into the unconscious for answers, the purpose of self-aggrandizement
and its origin, misconceptions about “choiceless awareness” as propagated by
J Krishnamurti, the natural response of “attraction as the action” versus thought-
induced attraction cultivated by culture and the effects of the continuous movement
of thinking on the physical body.

From a young age, Guha was spurred by a passionate yearning to understand
his own nature and in the process became well versed in the traditional Indian
scriptures, including mythology, mysticism and spiritual and yogic practices such
as meditation and hatha yoga. Although he says he had many phenomenal spiritual
experiences, none of these helped to resolve his inner conflicts. It wasn’t until he met
U.G. Krishnamurti in 1995 that a major shift occurred and ended his seeking once
and for all.
