Baba Hari Das is a monk who does not speak. The practice of keeping silent is called in Sanskrit 'mauna'. Its aim is less about silencing the voice and more about silencing the mind which, as we know, tends to be filled with worries, desires, and clinging. This book offers the privilege of being touched with the advice and teachings of a spiritual master who, out of that silence, gives form to the unexplainable and sheds light on our daily life predicaments.
Babaji writes: "There is an inner silence. It cannot be heard by the ears, only by the heart."
In Babaji's profound silence, he consistently communicates wisdom and guidance to all who ask. "Listen" to his answers, to actual letters and questions on such varied issues as Spiritual Practice, Relationships, Healing, Death, Parenting, Drugs, and Rebirth. This 1997 edition is a revised and enlarged edition of the 1977 classic. Includes illustrations and Sanskrit glossary.
"Don't think that you are carrying the whole world. Make it easy. Make it play. Make it a prayer."
