The theme that runs throughout this compilation (extracts from several satsangs) is “Silence”. Papaji states, and demonstrates, that Silence is one’s real, and permanent, nature. He goes on to say that Silence is the ground and substance of everything in existence. He also answers the question, “Can one be silent while being active in the world?” Papaji speaks of the way by which Sri Ramana Maharshi demonstrated Silence and what he taught about how to realize it. As importantly, he speaks of the means by which we distract ourselves from the exerience of Silence.
