Listen to the Silence....

Enthralled at hearing the Master chant Sanskrit verses in a melodious voice, a Sanskrit scholar said,
" I have always known that there is no language on earth like Sanskrit for the expression of things divine. "
"Dont be an ass," said the Master....
"The language of the divine isn't Sanskrit. It is Silence. "

" Every word, every image used for God is a distortion more than a description. "
"Then how does one speak of God?
"Through silence. "
"Why then do you speak in words ? "
At that, the Master laughed uproariously.
He said, "When I speak, you mustn't
listen to the words, dear one.
Listen to the silence.
