Sayings by Swami Kripananda

"Silence is the background on which we experience sound. It is always there but we never notice it until we are able to go beyond the sound. If we learn to detach ourselves from the sounds around us we will start hearing the silence. Once we have connected with the silence we are able to experience being. Initially we need to experience inner silence.

"Stillness is the backdrop against which we experience thought. The stillness has always been there but we have not been able to experience it because we are too busy focusing on the thoughts that are superimposed on that backdrop. It is always there but we never notice it until we are able to go beyond the thinking! Once we have connected with the stillness we are able to experience the spirit. Initially we need to experience inner stillness."

"Darkness is the background on which we experience the light. It is always there but we never notice it until we are able to go into the light. If we learn to detach ourselves from the light around us we will start seeing the darkness. Once we have connected with the light we are able to experience enlightenment. Initially we need to overcome the darkness."
