Ajahn Sumedho talks about Listening to the Sound of Silence. In meditation, we establish awareness. This awareness contemplates on the sound of silence, not to be heard by the ear but by the mind without any judgment.

Did you enjoy listening to the sound of silence audio?

Learn from "The Sound of Silence" ebook as it explores in detail the topic of silence itself along with intuitive awareness ever-present inside all of us.

An excerpt:

It is important to keep reminding ourselves that we are recognizing a natural state of timelessness, because experience is always now, here and now. Whether you think you experience things in the past or anticipate possibilities in the future, all that – memories of the past or anticipation of the future – is happening now. And so this is the illusion of time because, in the ordinary world, time is our reality. We believe totally in, are committed to, time as reality. The aim of meditation is to keep reminding ourselves of the present. Experience is always in the present; it’s here and now, what is called paccuppanna-dhamma (the reality of now).
