“..thank you India. Thank you. Thank you silence.
The moment I let go of it, was the moment I got more than I could handle.
The moment I jumped off of it, was the moment I touched down… (Alanis Morrisette; Thank U)
When we work a lot, we say we are tired. When we read a lot, we say our eyes are tired. If we speak a lot, we don’t say our tongue is tired. We like to talk endlessly. We like to talk rubbish, to gossip… Tongue is an organ to practice the truth. Just not lying, it doesn’t mean we are speaking the truth. Truth is truth! It starts with in us. So first step to Satya** is speaking minimum! It starts in silence. It starts with exploring ourselves. There is the truth.

**Satya is used in a religious context to denote being honest and truthful in actions, speech and thought. This is one of the five yamas, or rules for living in an ethical manner, according to the yogic philosophy outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras.
