Inner Silence Meditation Workshop for Revealing the Supreme Self Atman

Posted: May 26, 2012 / in: Blog / 15 comments

Once, long ago, a disciple named Bhaskali approached his Guru, Bhava, and asked him: “Where is The Eternal and what does The Supreme Absolute mean, who is Brahman that the Upanishads talk about?”

However, his master did not reply, but remained silent. The disciple insisted and asked him again and again, but in spite of all these, the master did not answer at all, abiding in his quietness. Only much later he said: “I have already told you, over and over, but you are not able to understand me. What can I do? Brahman, The Absolute or The Eternal, cannot be explained in words! Only in a profound silence, full of aspiration and love, can one know Him.There is no other place where He can be found, except in the profound silence of the Supreme Self (ATMAN)! This Atman is, above all, the everlasting Silence (Aham Atma Santah).”

Today we are educated to abhor silence and to surround ourselves with as much noise and action as possible. But no matter how far we try to remove ourselves from time spent in silence and reflection it will never change the fact that as human beings – or as “spiritual beings having a human experience” – we have to periodically give ourselves a gift of silence.

I have come to realize more and more the importance of taking regular breaks from the fast pace of daily life to spend time with ourselves in silence, to not only regenerate our beings and take stock on our lives as a whole, but also to come closer to the essence of who we really are and the meaning of what life is really all about.

We are all too familiar with the everyday life conditions that don’t allow us to reach a deep state of silence, and I encourage everyone to make a concerted effort to take much-deserved time out for themselves – in silence.

silence meditation“When you come to see the nature of your awareness in its purity, all imaginings will surrender to this peace and beauty, all that remains is being…Only then will the nature of existence be revealed. All true knowledge comes from Silence.”

I invite everybody to this exceptional opportunity to meet yourself within. In the silence of yourself you acquire the Self, the Atman!

    Very beautiful and true article. We can’t find real happiness in the midst of mind agitation..

  2. Jean says:

    It is indeed a big challenge to be yourself in a world that is polluted, where we grew up in the same polluted manner.. without that awareness over the sacred and simple reality.. Nice opportunity for those who are in Copenhagen..

  3. RY says:

    It is so good when you can make the mind silent.. or when it becomes silent by itself.. for me it is the most beautiful moment..

  4. Xing Chi says:

    We spend a lot of time thinking about what is NOT happening, contemplating events that occurred in the past or that might happen in the future.. this sort of “mind-wandering” is thought to be the default operating mode of our brains as they are now.. But to learn to really meditate.. and be still and silent, i believe it takes a lot of training and patience.. It may be a key to health for nowadays society.

  5. Opono says:

    Is meditation state related to memory and self control?

  6. Jean says:

    There is a study by Kirk Brown showing that people high on a mindfulness scale are more aware of their unconscious processes. These people have more cognitive control, and a greater ability to shape what they do and what they say, than people lower on the mindfulness scale.
    Moreover, Daniel Gilbert proves with his study that humans are on autopilot .. more than half of the time.

  7. Satya says:

    We are at a very beginning with exploring of mind and consciousness.. some need to be pioneers in this subject.. this yoga school is doing this very well..

  8. Dom says:

    Meditation turns one’s face from lie to truth, even if the truth may not be pleasant. It turn one from hallucination to reality. From aggressive to being kind. From yearning to equilibrium. From rejection to acceptation.
    It is a technique that can be learned.

  9. Dom says:

    Perhaps all we need for meditation is sincerity. If you are willing to be sincere with yourself, no matter what, to the end. For you can’t step back.. and also you can’t hide no more.

  10. Xing Chi says:

    No wonder why the word LISTEN the same letters as the word SILENT

  11. Ann says:

    The quieter you become, the more you can hear 😉

  12. Daniele says:

    I just found out that there is a scientific research that shows that the space between two similar thoughts is occupied by 3,000 – 5,000 secondary thoughts that we are not even aware of!
    I mean this is the case to say that what we are not aware of, we cannot control. What we cannot control controls us. Paradoxically, a huge work!

  13. Laszlo says:

    Indeed, most people are used by their mind, instead of using their mind. It is very easy to notice this around and within us. So if you have one positive thought and three thousands of other random thoughts, you can figure out what kind of results you will obtain.

  14. Shaam says:

    Is it necessary to understand (and use) the mechanisms of the mind in order to be able to meditate?

  15. Julie says:

    Thank you for this invaluable experience. I am starting the meditation class and hope to advance in my practice.
