Sunday Post : Silence

“…See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. “

The Great Himalayan Mountain Range . “If there is a heaven on Earth, it is here, it is here it is here”, so said the Moghul Emperor Jehangir in the early 17th century when he set his eyes on the Kashmir valley. It holds true even today. Ladakh, one of the districts of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, is located between the Kunlun Mountain range to the north and the Great Himalayas to the South. Stunning landscapes and high passes define this sparsely inhabited region.

There’s miles and miles of Silence… Manna for the soul and mind. It is said that the great Indian sages meditated  in the Himalayas for years to attain salvation or achieve tremendous powers, While we didn’t achieve any of that, we  did come back with rejeuvenated souls and tranquil minds. And now, if I ever need to get away from the hustlte and bustle of city life, all I need to do is tuck into my memories  and find this image of the mesmerising mountains for a few moments of silence!
