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).
