Ajahn Brahm talking at Monash University (BSV Wesak Celebration 2013).

Ajahn talked about the importance and power of silence in this age of noise and busy-ness. “Silence is one of the greatest of healers.” Ajahn reflected how as a lay person, he enjoyed the silence of cathedrals (like Westminster Abbey of the past) to rest his mind and body. Ajahn also talked about how Australia is wonderful for monasteries, as the forests are very quiet.
