Silence

  • Hindu – Bhagavadgita 4:39
He who has faith, who is absorbed in it and who has subdued his senses gains wisdom and having gained wisdom he attains quickly the supreme peace.

  • Buddhist – The final stanza of the 6th Patriarch
Undisturbed and serene, the wise man practices no virtue. Self-possessed and dispassionate, he commits no sin. Calm and silent, he gives up seeing and hearing. Even and upright, his mind abides nowhere.

  • Zoroastrian – Yasts 19
It seems to the soul of the faithful one as if he were inhaling the sweet-scented wind with his nostrils and he thinks, whence does that wind blow, the sweetest-scented wind that I ever inhaled in my nostrils, and it seems to him as if his own conscience were advancing to him in that wind, and she, being his own conscience, answereth him:

O thou youth of good thoughts, good words, and good deeds, I am thine own conscience

  • Jewish – Psalms 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God

  • Christian – Revelation 1:8
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

  • Islamic – 7:204
And do thou bring thy Lord to remembrance in thy soul, with humility and in reverence, without loudness in words, in the mornings and evenings; and be not thou of those who are unheedful.
  • Sufi – Gayan – Chalas
You must find your ideal in yourself; no ideal in life will prove lasting and true except the one you yourself make.
