Celebration is the nature of the spirit. Any celebration has to be spiritual. A celebration without spirituality has no depth. Silence gives depth to celebration."
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
'Celebrating Silence' is a thematically organised compilation of the first five years of weekly knowledge.
Recall the last time you hugged someone dear, and felt love which your arms could not encircle. The last time you saw a thing momentary, and perceived beauty your speech couldn’t express. Each time, you were celebrating silence.
It is to deepen the relationship of a seeker with his Self, that this book by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar begins with a title that challenges the sense driven experiential norm held by man – Celebrating Silence!
The world teaches us to celebrate with sound, with light, with energy. However such celebration tires us, while we want it to last, and not get over. This is man’s greatest search.
Indeed the age old dilemma in front of man has been about how to keep the spirit high, how to keep the celebration going without losing enthusiasm.
The sublime spiritual truth dawns on man when he realises, an infinite amount of celebration is available forever, but in silence.
Celebrating Silence by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a roadmap to that journey from the noise outside, created by the various emotions, such as anger, jealously, sadness, hopelessness etc. to the cool world of solidified silence inside.
