Silence

Because I can't afford to take part in the course of lamrim that starts at the nearby buddhist centre today I went to a free reading at the university about silence.

I expected a kind of contemplative mood, a restful time.

Wrong!

A group of talkative students chatted all the time in a very disturbing way and the lecturer was equally restless. He gave to many quotations without almost no time between them to let the essence sink in, that the reading was a true violation of it's very subject.

So I left early and walked in the woods near the building.
It was very quiet there, with only the birds singing and some flying creatures swirling around at places.

Then the sun found it's way in long rays to the ground, which was absolutely beautiful.

That was true silence...
