Ramana Maharshi says Slience means "Silence Of the Mind"
« on: April 23, 2010, 06:37:42 AM »
Once, a devotee while observing silence wrote out a long list of questions and handed it over to Bhagavan. He looked at it and returned it observing,

'Is this silence? It is the mind which has to be silent.'

Another devotee was continuously prostrating to Bhagavan. He remarked:

Is this a gymnasium? Have you come for exercise? If you have devotion, demonstrate it by your silence.
