Splendor of Virtues: Patience

For me, quietness is being still inwardly, where content and movement are absent. Quietness leads me to perceive the perfection in the present moment, so that I can accept whatever occurs or does not occur. Nothing need be altered or changed for me to see that perfection. Each moment is whole, complete, and filled with the shakti of the Guru’s grace. Quietness is a gift of that grace.

Every morning I follow the discipline of  performing puja and arati, and then I chant Shri Krishna Govinda, and end by singing Tvameva Mata. During this time I experience love, devotion, and joyfulness. After this I sit quietly with my eyes closed, or gazing at a picture of Bade Baba. And that is when I truly experience quietness, a complete quietness in which I feel I am part of this great universe.

I experienced this virtue this morning, when I felt a need to chant. I chanted Govinda Jaya Jaya, Kali Durge, and more. I just kept on chanting until I ended up in a state of utter, sublime stillness—such a wonderful state of quietness. I felt the primordial sound Om vibrating in my heart!

I had a profound experience of quietness while participating in a Pilgrimage to the Heart Retreat in Gurudev Siddha Peeth. Participants practice silence throughout the retreat. As the days passed, I entered a deep, abiding state of inner silence. While being inwardly still, I was totally present, able to fully engage with each day’s activities. It was glorious.
One day, as I was walking in the Ashram gardens, an insight arose from within: “I don’t have to become anything other than who I am. I only need to be fully present with where I am and what I am doing.” This realization forever altered how I perceive myself.
Each time I remember this in the course of the day, I experience quietness.
