The Mystery of Silence

In Dakshinamurti Slokam, Adi Sankara speaks of Siva as Guru teaching the rishis in silence: mauna-vyAkhyA-prakaTita-para-brahma-tatvaM Lao Tsu describes the ‘Law of the reversed effect’ thus: It is in the letting go, that we are enabled to receive; In the stillness, that we can participate; In the silence, hear; and, out of the dark night, see. To know the Truth, one must get rid of knowledge
