Success Of Silence > Page1
Since ancient time, silence is worshipped as an important component of spiritual discipline. Initially, the
practice of this virtue may commence with some three hours of
silence at noon time, say on Sunday or any other suitable day. This
practice may be enhanced by routines, the vow daily from 8.00 p.m.
to 8.00 a.m. the next day. During these hours, the exceptions could
be made for prayers, uttering a hymn of praise for adoration of God.
The vow of continuous silence for three
to seven days is very helpful during the course of intensive
meditation and scripture writing. Thus is practiced the vow of
silence by different aspirants, according to their circumstances and
the various stages of their spiritual advancements. Only through
deep contemplation and the practice of silence, is it possible to
become a genuine ascetic (Monk).
