Such silent sessions with the Master are incomparably valuable. Many abhyasis make the mistake of breaking the silence by asking unimportant questions, or by idle chatter among themselves. It is in the silent assembly that a spiritual rapport is established, and in which true communion takes place. In such a silent assembly Master is at peace, totally relaxed, and works on us in an uninhibited manner. No demands are made upon him, verbal or otherwise. He is left free to do what he pleases. In essence, he is given his freedom.
