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.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable.

I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
