Karl Renz

Biography

Karl Renz was born in Germany in 1953, and, after some years of rather unorthodox "seeking" (including time spent in Mexico looking for Don Juan), experienced an Awakening in the late 1970s. He travels around the world talking about, well, what can't be talked about -- and does pretty well at it. He's visited Santa Fe each fall the last five years or so, offering evening "Self-Talks" ("the self talking to the self", as he puts it) at the home of a friend.

‘Extreme’ – that’s how seasoned Advaita buffs would term the Karl Renz brand of Advaita, suggesting compromise as an option. However the option of compromising or not itself gets burnt out in the untamed fire of Karl’s living words. ‘I would rather kill myself than bullshit myself,’ says Karl, scoffing at requests to be 'nice’ or 'accommodating' to listeners gasping for survival. By neither confi

People always ask 'what do you think about unknotting the karmic knots? ' That's Vedanta. Unknotting your tendencies by techniques, by meditation or something. You come to me, we are doing the opposite! I put so many knots in your bloody brain that you cannot even imagine that they ever will be gone. Because succeeding by unknotting knots makes the first knot, that there is one who has knots, stro

‘You don’t need this book!’ Karl would say, ‘You stand to gain absolutely nothing from it.’ He would probably add he hopes nobody gains or understands anything from him. What’s more, he would mean it! In Karl you encounter Advaita in its rawest form – undiluted, uncooked, unconditioned by thought and untainted by frills or more concepts. It’s bang-in-your-face, inescapable Advaita… ‘What-you-cann

Am I – I Am is an assortment of delectable snippets from various talks of Karl Renz – talks which Karl often refers to as ‘Living Words’. These ‘Living Words’ are best described in Karl’s own words as those “without a speaker, having no direction, are not teaching, give no advice and do not want anything from you.” This, simply put, is the heart of the book. All you can say about the phenomenon na

Here ‘lies’ the truth! The truth which can be spoken is, for sure, not the Truth. Truth is never beautiful and beauty is never true. That’s the first premise in Tao, says Karl. For someone who summarily dismisses any possibility of anyone ever ‘knowing’ Truth, it’s a wonder that this guy Karl is still in business – seasoned seekers forever longing to listen to him and not getting enough of it! ‘I

"Watch out. This is not another of those feel-good ‘oneness’ Advaita books. This one is a double-barrelled shotgun taking pot shots at the conceptualising mind – one barrel being fired by the great Indian mystic-sage Dattatreya (Avadhut) and the other by Karl Renz, the contemporary ‘Avadhut’. There is no escape here not just for the ‘fragmented-mind’ but also for the enlightened ‘whole-mind’!
