Celebrating Silence is a collection of excerpts from talks given by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar from 1995 to 2000. It represents a journey that began in New Delhi and ended in Rishikesh, India with many stops in between.
Topics range from doubt and fear to love and dispassion, and cover what it means to be on the spiritual path—a path of service, spiritual practice and surrender.
Gurudev leads us through an understanding of God and back to our inner Self—what we really seek, often without knowing. It is not unusual for readers to open the book to a random page and find just the answer they were seeking. And it will be as relevant today as it was in Gurudev’s original talk.
"Some questions can only be answered in silence. Silence is the goal of all answers. If an answer does not silence the mind, it is no answer. Your soul is solidified silence and this solidified silence is wisdom, knowledge. When wisdom dawns, it gives rise to celebration.” —Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
