Sabyasachi Guha
Guha with friends in South India

Sabyasachi Guha, retired physicist, met U.G. Krishnamurti in 1995 and remained in close association with him until U.G’s death in 2007. In U.G. he felt he had finally met the person who was able to address his inner conflicts and end his seeking for good. In Can’t Lose A Friend I Don’t Have Guha addresses the concept of Advaita Vedanta and explains its stark non-reality.

“The model is an assumption and the reporting mechanism itself a divisive process.  These are concepts and they come to us through intellectual and logical thinking, therefore it is always problematic.  How do we address the oneness of life?  One cannot say ‘I have experienced non-duality.’ By trying to understand the concept one will invest tremendously in the dualistic nature of thought and imagination, and in the process of trying to understand the experience logically, create ideas and various aspects of Advaita.

“If one attempts to imitate a behavior about a particular state and tries to prove one is functioning accordingly, you will fool yourself and mislead others.”
