The Silence of Life

Beverly Lanzetta Meditations, Study


The Philosopher. Silence. Nicholas Roerich, 1940

“The silence of Life is not the same as a life of silence, the silent life of the monks, of a hermitage…[T]he silence of Life is the art of making silent the activities of life (that are not Life), in order to reach the pure experience of Life.”

-Raimon Panikkar, Opera Omnia vol. I.2, p. 13.
