I had an interesting conversation with a devotee. He told me that if a person becomes quiet and goes deep within himself or herself, they will find solace. Not only that, miseries surrounding us can be cut into half.
Most of our miseries come from us talking too much nonsense. This will not only put us in trouble but put a dent in another person's heart as well.
This place is dukhalayam --- a place of misery. Why make it any worse for oneself by talking unnecessarily.
He went on to say that even people who are not on the spiritual platform or for those seeking higher truths, become quiet to think about the mysteries of the world.
As for Krsna devotees, who have so much more knowledge handed down by their spiritual masters, should use this material body and progress even further.
So less talk. More thinking. More Meditation. More Service.
