Silence is not the absence of sound
Silence is a certain quietness of acceptance
Experienced deep within the recess of the heart

Amidst the noise around
A stillness of the mind
Slowly emptying
The clouds of thoughts
Slowly vanishing

Like a clear summer sky with stray clouds

Silence is the greatest and most efficient way to realize Brahman.Silence is the final goal of any spiritual sadhana since Silence is Brahman!

Very good one Madam. If you have a chance please do read the article I put in my blog on Silence.

Dear arjuna,
I did read your posts both on your blog and on cosmic-verity. First let me thank you for starting up this blog. Its simply amazing at the variety one finds here. Great going. I have not seen much in any of the so called spiritual magazines. Spontaneity is divinity. Yes Silence is truly fasicinating. A womb from which emanates Everything. Please visit my blog I wrote on silence a few days back. And please no formalities just call me parvati or Kitchenette Soul. I have never believed age to be a criteria for respect

Hi Parvathi, beautiful poem, it is amazing that within a span of few weeks, we all are reading about silence and its effects from different sources.

Will be waiting for more :)

I have a question.

Why do we crave stillness?

Please share you feelings and comments.

Chutneypopcorn, when is the time your body, mind and soul at peace with each other ? I believe the only time it is when there is silence around you. Peace from the constant noise from the surrounding world - For a lay man this should be the reason why one would crave for stillness.

From a spirtual person - Silence is the time when u can try to discover your inner self, when u try to realize the one.

From both spheres of life - Silence is something we all crave for - do you agree ?

Dear chutney popcorn:

Silence is our very core
The One Divine
From which ALL emanates
Every desire, for love, for comfort
Emanates from this subtle craving for Silence

Its simply like a little one wanting to go home
Back to where we belong.
Little one to the big One
A merger of the drop of water
With the Ocean
A union that is
