One of Papaji’s most beautiful discourses (Om Shanti) at the beginning of Satsang on 21 December 1992.

This discourse is part of a compilation titled ‘Return to Silence’. Papaji states, and demonstrates, that Silence is one’s real, and permanent, nature. He goes on to say that Silence is the ground and substance of everything in existence. He also answers the question, “Can one be silent while being active in the world? ” We actually see an example of this when one devotee, while speaking to Papaji, suddenly recognizes Silence as the reality of his being and the viewer is drawn into the profound depths of being. In a spontaneous outpouring, this devotee speaks about “the arrow of Papaji’s love which strikes the heart” and which brings one to his knees in gratitude.
