Description
About the Author

Rohit Mehta (1908-1995) was educated in Bombay, Surat and Ahmedabad. As a student he took part in the Indian freedom struggle and was imprisoned on more than one occasion. He was attracted by the Socialist movement, but not satisfied with its philosophy joined the theosophical Society soon becoming an active worker. He was the international Secretary of the Theosophical Society from 1941 to 1944, and became the General Secretary of the Theosophical Society in India in 1945 which post he held up to 1959.

A well-known author and eloquent speaker, Rohit Mehta lectured in many parts of the world on Religion, Philosophy, Yoga, Psychology and allied subjects.

Preface

Modern theosophical literature, vest and varied as it is, contains two exquisite gems of profound mysticism. They are Light on the path and the Voice of the Silence. The latter was the last gift of H.P. Blavatsky to the world, as it was published only two years before she passed away. This book has a great relevance today as much confusion prevails all over the world regarding Yoga and Meditation, Spirituality and Psychism. The Voice of the Silence helps one to clear up these confusions, and put the aspirant on the right path of spiritual perception. This book may well be described as containing the essentials of the Yoga of Theosophy.

The Voice of the Silence indicates that the greatest obstacle on the spiritual path is the Mind with its tendency to "slay the Real". It is true that the Real cannot be slain, but it can be covered over by the innumerable projections of the Mind. And this is exactly what happens. The journey of the neophyte through the Three Halls described in he book is indeed a process whereby the projections of the Mind, even the subtlest, are put aside. The aspirant then enters the Vale of Bliss where he comes to the great ecstasy of spiritual experience.

The book asks the neophyte to slay the slayer-but can mind be slain? If so, who slays the mind? Indeed, the mind cannot be slain, it slays itself. H.P.B. says "The Mind is like a mirror; it gathers dust while it reflects". To observe the gathering of dust is the only way to keep the mirror clear and polished where no distortion of the image occurs. It is in this observation that the mind slays itself. H.P.B. speaks of the tidal wave and allowing it to work itself out. It is thus that the mind comes to a deep silence where alone there occurs "Right Perception of existing things, the Knowledge of the non-existent".

When today all over the World much that is spurious seems to gain currency in the name of Yoga, it is imperative that the message contained in the Voice of the Silence be spread far and wide so that modern man may be enabled to move safely to the Vale of Bliss unmindful of the attractions of the Three Halls.

Testimonials

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!
Pablo, Germany
I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
