U. G. Krishnamurti: Mind as a Myth (excerpt) – A Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Jeffrey Mishlove

NOTE: This is an excerpt from a 30-minute DVD.

Does the mind exist as a distinct entity apart from our thoughts about it? U. G. Krishnamurti was a disquieting skeptic and author. As “mind” is a myth, he says, so is the notion of “self.” The human being is like a dog chewing a dry bone. When its gums bleed, the dog may believe the bone is rich with blood. Just so, we believe the mind is real.
