Roads to Silences video

Roads to Silences VideoPető Szabolcs (Szabi) shares with us the video Roads to silences (India | 2014). And writes:

"I have still a long way to go but at least I am already on the way. I am looking for the narrow path that suits my own rhythm and samskaras the best. I am a seeker like the Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama Ashram's inhabitants. We are seeking that inner self whom the dust needs to be wiped off. We must peel the veils of oblivion off which, like layers of an onion, conceal that which live in all of us. We're seeking the roads that lead us to ourselves. The roads to silences."

We prematurely published news about this video last month before the final editing, and Szabi had written

“We – the translator, Kata and me – worked for weeks with the English subtitles until now in order that every member of our Tradition can watch and understand the film... One can choose between Hungarian and English subtitles in 'Settings' under the video.”
