The power of silence...

I got the second quote non-religious or a christian site (din't care to find out).. I wish they had used SHE or IT instead of HE .. that apart, nice quotes


The radiance of consciousness-bliss, in the form of one awareness shining equally within and without, is the supreme and blissful primal reality. Its form is silence and it is declared by Jnanis (Self-realised) to be the final and unobstructable state of true knowledge (jnana).

Sri Ramana Maharshi
That One is called Prana, The Supreme force that controls and regulates everything.He gives the power of breath to every creature. Master of all living beings, Container of all creation, He can be known through silence, meditation, and the practice of yoga.
Vishnu Sahasranama (unverified)
While meditating, when we chant Om, we create within ourselves a vibration that attunes sympathy with the cosmic vibration and we start thinking universally. The momentary silence between each chant becomes palpable. Mind moves between the opposites of sound and silence until, at last, it ceases the sound. In the silence, the single thought—Om—is quenched; there is no thought. This is the state of trance, where the mind and the intellect are transcended as the individual self merges with the Infinite Self in the pious moment of realization. It is a moment when the petty worldly affairs are lost in the desire for the universal. Such is the immeasurable power of Om.

And finally, a nice talk by Swami Dayanandaji
