Silence: The Illuminated Mind

by Himalayan Yoga Publications Trust

Himalayan Yoga Publications Trust is proud do announce the upcoming release of a beautiful new book by Swami Veda Bharati. Collected and arranged from lectures given by Swami Veda over the course of many years, Silence: The Illuminated Mind contains a wealth of inspiration and guidance in the practice and experience of silence.

Book Cover: Silence: The Illuminated Mind“Silence is such a profound and deep experience of human existence that only when we have understood silence can we understand the inspiration that has ever flowed to humanity from the minds and mouths of the great rishis, sages and prophets. The word mantra is connected with “man” through the verb root man, which means to think, to mentate, to contemplate, to meditate. So that “man” means the meditating species and the word mantra means that which becomes the core of his meditation.

The Sanskrit word for silence is mauna. It is the act, the habit, the nature and disposition of a muni: a silent, meditating, contemplative one. And these words, mauna for silence and muni, the monk, the one whose disposition it is to be silent, are also derived from the same verb, man, to meditate. So the highest man is muni, the silent man.”

– Swami Veda Bharati
