Discussions about Godhead
« on: October 23, 2008, 12:33:18 PM »
Once a devotee asked Bhagavan Ramana:

" Is there any end for discussions on Godhead, which are done
right from the olden days?"

Bhagavan kept silent for a while.

Devotee: Can I take Bhagavan's Silence as an answer to this question?"

Bhagavan Ramana: Aha. Silence is the form of Godhead.  This is
what Sankara has said as: "Mouna Vakya Praktitha Para Brahma
tattvam."  Only with Silence, the Truth can be commented.

Devotee:  Is it not that the Buddha had thrown overboard all the
discussions regarding Godhead?

Bhagavan Ramana:  It is not merely that much.  People call him
an exponent of the theory of Void, because of that.   But the
Buddha has said that instead of logical discussions on Godhead. he
was interested in directing the seekers in the way of happiness in
this birth itself and it was his Dharma.
