Dada J P Vaswani on Silence



Dada Jashan P. Vaswani is the spiritual head of Sadhu Vaswani Mission in Pune, India

Silence is our true Teacher. Silence is our real Guru! In silence are all our doubts cleared. And in silence is heard the Voice of God which speak the ancient word: - Uttishtha! Jagrata! O sleeper, Arise! Awake! How long will you in slumber lie?

To awake is to know that we are not creatures of the earth, earthy. We do not belong to this world. We must live in the world but not be of the world.

We must attend to our daily tasks but our mind should be fixed on the Lotusfeet of the Lord. We must practice the presence of God. And He is not afar. He is with us, within us.

To practice the presence of God elaborate rites and ceremonies are not needed. What is needed is love and childlike trust. Let us go to God as a child would go to its mother or father. Let us place all our problems and needs before Him. In Him is the solution to all our problems: and in Him is all that we need!
