Namaste Master Madhukar!
It was a deep joy for me to sit in silence with you and the Sangha.
And there was a new quality! Silence with undivided attention, breathtaking silence!
Thoughts and feelings come and go, don’t burden. Deep relaxation, total enjoyment. A bottomless abundance. I have enjoyed running in the wet grass. I have enjoyed to smell the fine scent of the flowers, the wet earth, the trees. I have enjoyed to look at the ever returning soft waves of the lake and to observe the bees and butterflies playing together. And to feel the taste when polenta and white wine touch the tongue.
It was marvelous, of a rare simplicity. And even more seldom and deeper: full of love and tenderness.
Dear Madhukarji, thank you from my heart for these insights into silence!
Kind regards, Rainer
