Simply outstanding! This little book on silence is a treasure trove of insight, not only into silence itself but also into mystical experience, the interconnectedness of different religious perspectives and systems; the two edged sword of doctrine, dogma, and ethics; the nature of institutions, and perhaps even a prescription for moving forward. Highly recommended!
