Maun Power of silence

During my last visit to Swami Shailendra Saraswati ji’s ashram at Amarkantak,he encouraged me to practice this ignored but extremely potent tool , practice of Maun:silence.

There are three dimensions of our day-to-day dealings in life:mind,word and body.We may also say,body,intellect,and mind.Words are the main means of our self-expression.Our conduct may be viewed in the context of our expression in the form of words.

When we talk of speech,we naturally think of language.It is also necessary that the person standing before us also knows that language.The two should interpret the words in the same manner.

The age we live in is the age of communicating,speaking.Each of us appears keen to speak.Infact most of the people even listen to speak and not to absorb and understand.The people are eager to hear words of praise.People desire others to admire them.Speaking is now regarded as synonymous with knowledge.Speech is merely a means,it is not knowledge.
