My outward silence is no spiritual exercise.

 

Once a devotee asked a Perfect Master why He fasted. The Perfect One replied, "I am not an aspirant. I am Perfect. So I am not fasting to attain perfection. It is for others that I fast." A spiritual aspirant cannot act like One who has attained to perfection, but One who is Perfect can, for the sake of others, act like an aspirant.

 

One who has received a Master of Arts degree can write the alphabet on a board to teach children, but it does not mean he is no longer a Master of Arts.

 

So My silence has been undertaken and maintained solely for the good of others.
