The so-called pandits, materialistic scholars, are actually full of

confusion inside. Their very knowledge is a disturbance. Their minds

are continuously chattering deep within. They may be reciting

scriptures, shastras, but that makes no difference. What is going on

inside is of no value.


Unless one is absolutely silent, with complete contemplation - not

even a single wandering thought stirring inside - one can not begin

to hear. People have ears, hence they believe they are capable of

hearing. It is true that they are not deaf, but behind their ears

their minds are toiling to interpret, to compare, to analyse, to

argue, and to doubt. In the process everything gets lost in the dark

depths of the whirlpool of confusion.


If one can simply hear the word or sound in complete absorption

there will be no disturbance. It deepens one's silence. It is the

beginning of realization, for true silence means to hear the soul:


maunam atma-vimarshanam


"Silence is research into the self."


manah-prasadah saumyatvam

maunam atma-vinigrahah

bhava-samsuddhir ity etat

tapo manasam ucyate


"Serenity, simplicity, silence, self-control and

purity of thought are the austerities of the mind."
