Sound of Silence

Postby Mr Man » Thu Dec 20, 2012 7:35 pm

There are extracts from Ajahn Amaro’s recently published book Inner Listening: Meditation on the Sound of Silence in the latest Amaravati newsletter, which may be of interest to some.
Here is a link http://www.fsnewsletter.amaravati.org/pdf/2013_FSNewsletter.pdf#page=26 It might take a little time to download as it is in a largish PDF file

Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill
