Sri Ramana Maharshi - Silence : ever-speaking voice

Silence : ever-speaking voice / सनातन / नित्य-वाणी

Silence is ever-speaking (सनातन / नित्य-वाणी); it is a perennial flow of language; it is interrupted by speaking. These words obstruct that mute language. There is electricity flowing in a wire. With resistance to its passage, it glows as a lamp or revolves as a fan. In the wire it remains as electric energy. Similarly also, silence is the eternal flow of language, obstructed by words.

What one fails to know by conversation extending to several years can be known in a trice in Silence, or in front of Silence - e.g., श्रीदक्षिणामूर्ति Dakshinamurti, and his four disciples.

That is the highest and most effective language.

~ Sri Ramana Maharshi (from Talk 246.)

- Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya !
॥ ॐ नमो भगवते श्री रमणाय ॥
