Overview

Mauna Vratha literally means a vow to keep silent.

It is essential that one’s speech must be pure for spiritual growth. Practice of silence is important to acquire purity of speech. For this purpose, Hindu religious texts commend mauna-vratha .

In Bhadra, the sixth month of the Hindu calendar, 16 days of mauna-vratha are said to be useful.

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. 

Detailed Overview

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 in which they can write down their thoughts and emotions during your period of silence.

You will spend Day 2 - Day 5 (4 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.

We suggest that you also use the notepad kept in the cottages to communicate any requirements or instructions

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.

Irritability vanishes. You become a better listener. Your speech can now become carefully constructed and well-articulated.

Silence And Solitude Is A Journey

Going on a silent retreat is, essentially, embarking on a journey—and as with all journeys, you’ll face difficulties along the way. Real silence requires being alone with yourself and being comfortable with that solitude.

This can be hard even for the most introspective among us.

Being naked with our mental activity is surprisingly relieved as we discover the color and sound, vividness and simple beauty of just being present in our retreat.

Being present in our new environment with all our senses starts a journey from our mental busyness to the heart of awareness. This is where the questions slowly fade and the answers take shape.

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.

The 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.
