Only silence is complete – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Thoughts are not the goal in themselves. Their goal is silence. When you ask the question “Who am I?” You get not answer, there is only silence. That is the real answer. You soul is solidified silence and this solidified silence is wisdom, knowledge.

To the question “Who am I?” the only relevant answer is silence. You need to discard all answers in words, including “I am nothing” or “I am the Cosmic Self” or “I am the Self.” Just remain with the question “Who am I?” All other answers are just thoughts and thoughts can never be complete.

Only silence is complete.

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.
– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
