Silence, the Ground

Nisargadatta Maharaj
"No particular thought can be mind's natural state, only silence. Not the idea of silence, but silence itself. When the mind is in its natural state, it reverts to silence spontaneously after every experience, or, rather, every experience happens against the background of silence."

Quoted on the website: Nisargadatta Maharaj and Silence

  1. The incessant noise of modern life has wiped out the silence of the mind. Still one feels invited to return to silence. One yearns for it.
