The deep silence
« on: March 26, 2010, 10:33:03 AM »
Bhagavan Ramana when He started talking, e.g. while narrating some Puranic story, will talk like a
torrential rain, often with emotions.  Suddenly He would fall into deep silence.  During this silence,
the devotees felt that He is communicating with their Heart.  And that is the time, He would also look
at someone for long minutes. 

Paul Brunton says:

He is a spiritual Everest, and one always gets a feeling that He is not approachable.

But He is in Sahaja sthiti, in His natural deep silence.

I am an author of many books and I have interviewed people at their level, without any compunction.

But with Him, I am afraid to sit near or even ask questions.

But He says smilingly:  You and I are the same one principle.

This is what that unnerves me most of the times.

Major Chadwick says that His Silence is so deep and think and I require a knife to cut it.

Talking about Tushinim bhavana, I felt like writing these.

Arunachala Siva.

Deep silence takes one to God.  Kanchi Mahaswami (Oh, Forum
rules!!!), used to observe Kashta Mounam (spelling in English?),
in that for a whole day, he would remain silence, without even
swallowing the saliva, leave alone not taking water or food!
This silence is something very strange and rare.  But Bhagavan
Ramana remained in Silence for long number of days in the initial
years, but He has said that it was not deliberate or even a tapas
and He remained so because He did not want to speak to anyone,
anything.

Arunachala Siva.
