Mauni Amavasya (Silence Day) falls on 8th February 2016. The observation of Silence Day is a practice that Swami Veda Bharati invited us to practice.
"We teach out of compassion. We teach because the world suffers and our teaching will reduce that suffering. We teach because we have received that compassion and want to share it with others who suffer. The cause of suffering, in the Yoga-sutras, is ignorance. Our teaching reduces the level of that ignorance. The student arrives because s/he is seeking help - our desire to teach arises directly out of our compassion for the student.”
- Swami Veda Bharati
