The secret that silence is the most necessary requirement has been known down the ages ; hence people have escaped from the world thinking that it is impossible to be silent in the world . That was an absolutely wrong conclusion , the wrong logic , because silence has nothing to do with the outside world .

So the question is not of changing places on the outside , but of changing the inner attitude , approach , the inner gestalt . Once you change the inner gestalt , the outside noise enhances your silence , it does not disturb it . It is not a nourishment .
