Inner Silence Meditation Workshop for Revealing the Supreme Self Atman
By Advaita Mihai Stoian
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.
“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!
