PLAYING WITH PEARLS OF VIRTUES Am I comfortable with silence? Or does the mind get fidgety when I am physically silent and bring up questions and uncertainties related to my life and relationships? Silence to some is boring and unproductive but that depends on one’s thoughts. I have two magical tools in hand: the mind and intellect. When I teach both to work in synchrony, I create for myself unforgettable experiences of empowerment, love, wisdom, compassion, forgiveness and far-sightedness. In silence, I can detach from my body, tasks and relationships and see which next step would be beneficial for myself and others. The more I discipline the mind with love, it becomes my closest friend. – B.K. Urvashi, Mt.
