Dear Meher Center Family and Friends,
Greetings from Meher Baba’s home in the West. It is just a few days until Silence Day, the time when we commemorate when Baba first began His external silence on July 10, 1925 at Meherabad, India. This silence would continue for all of His physical life.
A great deal has been said and written about His silence and the breaking of His silence, much of it by Baba Himself. Down the ages there will no doubt be much speculation about the purpose and meaning of His silence, and the mystery behind the breaking of His silence.
Regarding this, I wanted to share one of the most clarifying things He said about His silence:
“External silence helps the inner silence and only in internal silence is Baba found, in profound inner silence. I am never silent. I speak eternally. The voice that is heard deep within the soul is my voice.”*
In Baba’s love and service,
For Meher Center board and staff
