Translation of Shri Mahayogi’s words during a satsangha in New York
July 10, 2010
Q: My question is about the practice of mauna, or silence, I understand that it is about speaking less, minimalism. Sometimes when I am practicing this, the mind gets more active. How do you quiet the mind?
Master: The practice of mauna is not just about not saying anything externally. The true meaning of it is the complete elimination of the internal voices in the mind, that is, thoughts. This cannot be achieved without removing every attachment in the mind through the thorough practice of discrimination. It is good to practice external mauna from time to time in order to achieve true mauna. As I just said, discriminate between Truth and non-truth constantly, and if you see attachments toward non-truth in your mind, eliminate them.
