Program

Mauna Vratha

Mauna Vratha literally means a vow to keep silent. For spiritual growth, it is essential that one’s speech must be pure. To acquire purity of speech, the practice of silence is important. Hindu religious texts commend Mauna Vratha for this purpose. In Bhadra, the sixth month of the Hindu calendar, 16 days of Mauna Vratha are said to be useful. It is believed that through silence, one is able to achieve one’s desire. One attains the abode of Lord Shiva. Along with Mauna Vratha, it is essential that some time must be spent in offering prayers.

In Bhagavad Gita, 17/16, it is said “manaḥ-prasādaḥ saumyatvaḿ, maunam ātma-vinigrahaḥ, bhāva-saḿśuddhir ity etat, tapo mānasam ucyate”. Contentment of the mind, amiable temperament, silence, religious meditation, and good thoughts reflect austerity of the mind. Silence is placed mid-way between other qualities. It begins with control of the mind. Once the mind is controlled, one becomes friendly. One begins to look kindly towards others. One cuts down on useless speech and thinks more of God. One begins to generate good thoughts.

In Chanakya Niti, 11/9, it is said “whoever can remain silent every day for a full year becomes worthy of thousands of years of praise in heaven”. Silence can change the personality of an individual. Through silence, a person controls anger and speech. One grows stronger through greater determination and self-confidence. One is more at peace and free of tension. There is conservation of energy and a person experiences greater inner strength, helping one develop into a better person. It is known that if speech is silvern, silence is golden. Silence helps to conserve energy, to concentrate, and introspect. It helps one in the search of divinity. By observing silence, one gains goals easily.

There are varying degrees of Mauna. In Karna Mauna, or control of speech, other forms of communication, such as note writing, gesturing, and eye contact are still permitted. However, when there is total withdrawal from all external communication, this is Kastha Mauna. Eventually, all doubts are cleared from the mind, and the illusory character of the world with all its gunas is realized. This state is known as Susupti Mauna. The highest form of Mauna, when all thoughts are completely annihilated, is called Maha Mauna.

The regular practice of Mauna changes a person's whole pattern of communication. His speech becomes more direct, concentrated, and clear. When he does choose to speak, his brief words carry great power and meaning. He is able to command the total attention of his listeners, and they are able to hear the deeper truths underlying his words.

Program

Before beginning the days of silence, you will get a detailed wellness consultation regarding your health, food preferences, specific daily routines and requirements, preferred meal timings, etc. The retreat will be customized to meet your comfort levels and a structured agenda will be provided based on your choice of activities.

You will be provided a handbook where you can write down your thoughts and emotions during your period of silence. You will spend four days in silence but will be able to break your silence and speak to the staff when you require something, though this should be kept minimal. You are suggested to use the note pad kept in the cottages to communicate any requirements or instructions.

People begin a retreat looking for information about how to fix their lives. As their retreat unfolds, they discover experience and understanding that is deeper than fixing, more trusting in life itself. Mental work is giving way to peaceful awareness. Purpose is found in simple peace. It is in these moments thoughts turn into awareness, ideas become understanding, and searching settles into an inner well of trust.
