U.G. Krishnamurti famously described enlightenment as a neurobiological state of being with no religious, psychological or mystical implications. He did not lecture, did not set up organizations, held no gatherings and professed to have no message for mankind.Known as the `anti-guru', the `raging sage' and the `thinker who shuns thought'. U.G. spent his life destroying accepted beliefs in science, god, mind, soul, religion, love and relationships---all the props man uses to live life. Having taken away all support systems from those who came to him, he refused to replace them with those of his own, always insisting that each must find his own truth.An when U.G. knew that it was time for him to go, he refused all attempts to prolong life with medical help. He let nature, and his body, take its course.On the afternoon of 22 March 2007, U.G. Krishnamurti passed away in Vallecrosia, Italy.A bare, intensely personal account of a bedside vigil with the dying. A Taste of Life records the final days that well-known film-maker Mahesh Bhatt spent with U.G. Krishnamurti. It narrates how, in death, U.G. shows the authors and us a way to live life.
