On Silence

Silence is the womb of all that
is spoken and heard.
Silence is the flow of the river of intelligence
Words like the banks are
mere inturruptions to the flow.

Through words, One become many,
In silence, many return to the One.

In silence creation happens:
The master in us has created a house
called the universe
Through words we knock the door
of this house.
In silence, the chest of treasure
is flung open

Speak but do not stand in the way
of the music of silence.
Your words are useless
with this music.

The original voice of life
is silence.
All other noises of the world
are mere echoes.

From the book The Circle of Love by Debashish Chatterjee, professor of Organisation Behavior at the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow, India. You can email the publisher at rupa@ndb.vsnl.net.in to get a copy of the book.
