'Speech is only in silence' Bad Antogast, (Germany), April 29 (Wednesday): An audience representing 31 countries sat rapt in attention as His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar spoke this evening:
'There is nothing to say. In the silence of the Guru, questions disappear. Do you know the story of Dakshina Murthi?
Many sages did a lot of meditation. They had a lot of questions and they came to Dakshina Murthi. The Guru was young, the disciple old, they came and sat next to Dakshina Murti. The Guru did not say a word and all the questions vanished. The Guru is always young in spirit. The disciple is always old because he is bogged down by the past. That is the story of Dakshina Murti!
In silent speech, all questions disappear. Speech is only in silence. That is their spiritual symbol. That is the energy.'
