This Dog Barking chronicles the story of U.G. Krishnamurti, the Cosmic Naxalite, from his troubled childhood to his disillusionment with many of the leading spiritual teachers of the twentieth century and his catastrophic personal life. In 1967, UG underwent a series of biological mutations that left him in the 'natural state' - functioning without the interference of thought. With no fixed address, no followers and no organization, UG spent the next thirty years travelling the world with an uncompromising message: that 'mind is a myth' and the human condition should be demystified and de-psychologized and viewed in purely physiological terms. Candid and clear-eyed, this is a profoundly thought-provoking biography of one of the most radical philosophers of our age.
