We are continuing with the spiritual theme of Silence for the month of February 2024,  Join Swami Ma Radha and Emilio as they discuss the practice of silence called “Mauna Amavasya” during the new moon day of February 2024.

Swami Radha and Emilio will read more passages from Swami Veda’s profound writings on silence. Between readings we will show the last three 2007 Dunrovin video clips  of Swami Veda speaking on the topic of silence and its purpose. 

There will be time for discussion. Bring your questions on Thursday regarding the practice of silence that you always wanted to ask.

Mauna Amavasya (Silence Day) is an annual observance. The observation of Silence Day is a practice that Swami Veda Bharati invited us to practice.
Swami Veda has said – “…I would like many of my friends to set aside at least one day to share the silence with me just as you have shared the full moon day for an hour each month for more than a decade now.
If you plan from now, you can arrange your worldly affairs in such a way that they do not interfere with your one-day vow of silence.
On that day, no driving (except for emergencies), no TV, no conversation, just self-observation, contemplation, japa and learning (1) to give love in silence while (2) learning to love silence.”
By way of this period of mauna and reflection, please read and listen to this short address given by Swami Veda in 2010 in California.  Such a reminder will return you to the innocence and purity of stillness and silence. Honor that sentiment of love this week, and receive the blessings of the Lineage, with gratitude, srb.

Swami Veda Bharati
(an excerpt)
“…In such silence a field of divine unity is experienced which is not a unification of many parts but parts exist in that one infinite field. For thousands of years many traditions have taught systematic methods as to how to enter this interior ekanta, solitudinous silence.
In my ashram we have people who do ten days of silence, forty days of silence, ninety days of silence, but it is done methodically, and is scientifically guided. In that silence sooner or later the true face of God makes its appearance. It is not a face with features. It may be, as described by Arjuna, the light of ten thousand suns shining simultaneously in the sky.
In our interior sky which is more minute than the minutest atomic particle, and, more expansive than all the expansive space. All within us becomes filled with that light, with that noor, with that jyotih of which the Vedas have recited, of which the “Quran” has spoken, of which the Christian saints have sung hymns and psalms…”
