Dr. Jayadeva on Mauna (Silence) at the Satsang 2nd Dec 2012

The topic for the English Satsang on Sunday, 2nd Decemebr, 2012 was ‘Mauna’ (Silence).

Following is the transcript of the speech made by Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra on the topic.

Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra

“You see we are unable to observe silence. That is the way we have made ourselves, some talking has to go on. In fact the more we talk , the happier we are. We impose our presence, the others get subdued, and arguments like that. Not only do we lose a lot of energy while talking but all our thoughts get generated. Once you say something it has to be supported, some more thinking, some more thoughts, more talking, and the cycle goes on. You see in yoga observing silence is a must. And it helps, we are able to watch, we are able to observe, and the words that you say then, carries some weight. See at the ashram of Madhavadasji, the teacher himself would hardly talk, just at the right time he would say one or two words, but what he said was quite impressive, important and had meaning also, the persons listening can immediately understand. But in our present culture the more you talk, the better is your position, more important you look, in reality it is the other way around. when we talk we expose ourselves, much of what we say has no meaning, we waste our energy, create a disturbance, and what not. It is worth considering, whether we can start even in a very small measure, observing some silence, in peak hours, when we want to talk most, in the company of others, when we want to impress. Can we remain silent? Try it out, it will give you a good result.” “
