‘Silence has tremendous power’: Brahmachari Girish Ji
BHOPAL [Maha Media]: In the Maharishi Organisation, there is a tradition of observing "silence" during the first week of the New Year to increase more Sattwa–coherence in the collective consciousness of the society, gain new energy, get deep rest, enjoy the peace, and to enjoy the experience of higher states of consciousness. His Holiness Maharishi Ji used to go in for silence from the last day of the year to midnight of the 7th January of the New Year, every year. Keeping alive this valuable legacy and tradition of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ji, Brahmachari Girish Ji-the head of “Maharishi Group of Educational Institutions” welcomes the New Year by observing "silence" for the first three days. This year also, Girish Ji has observed silence for three days from the eve of the New Year.
During his lecture in Maharishi Educational Research, Holland, Maharishi Ji said on 20 November 2007 that, 'When silence functions, it is beyond any speech. It is beyond any action. It is spontaneous. It is the spontaneous function of silence. Everything comes to our lap. Everything comes to our lap in the waves of thought, in the waves of our understanding, in the waves of realization. This is how silence functions. And this gives us a real, real, undoubtable proof that the silence, which we are engaging to administer the world affairs, is our right path. It is a pathless path to us.
'Just the thought of ours is good enough to get us what we desire—it spontaneously comes to our lap. This is how we have known today; we have got the proof today that the silence, which we are wanting to administer our scattered world and put it on an integrated state of invincibility, that is going to be truthfully realized by us without much doing because Guru Dev has given us, again, the effortless technique to let our attention float in the transcendental field where we don't have even to desire.'
Before going in a silence, Brahmachri Grish Ji observed in a message that Gurudev Swami Brahmananda Saraswati and His Holiness Maharishi Ji have given us the entry into that area because spontaneously we come into possession of that which can do everything. Everything will be achieved, day after day, as a wave, a fresh wave every day of our administration of silence.'
“Shrimad Bhagavad Gita says Contentment of the mind, amiable temperament, silence, religious meditation and good thoughts reflect austerity of the mind.”
Brahmachari Girish Ji has also conveyed his best wishes to all the citizen of the country for the New Year.
