Banyen's Description: 

Ilie Cioara was a Romanian who died in 2004.  His message is original and unique, as he never travelled to India and never belonged to any traditional school. By practicing the silence of the mind, through an all-encompassing attention, we discover and fulfill our innermost potential of becoming one with the divine spark that lies dormant within us.

A silent mind allows the senses to perceive things as they are. Through silence, the mind in its totality had become an immense mirror in which the outside world was reflected...

If any reaction of the mind surfaced, it disappeared immediately in contact with the sparkle of impersonal Attention. A state of quiet and all-encompassing joy characterized me in all circumstances, whether pleasant or painful. My behavior was that of a simple witness, perfectly aware of what was happening around me, without affecting my all-encompassing state of peace.

The Silence of the Mind interweaves “mirror-poems” with prose explorations, followed by a fascinating account of his own learning journey, including two years hiding horizontally in an attic, receiving lessons from “the larger world”—and that was just the beginning.

           The Power of Emptiness           

The mind is completely silent, we are attentive - a clear consciousness, 

All meanings, boundaries disappear - us and the Infinite are “One”;

Practically we have a new mind, always fresh.

Being in the pause, I become infinite!

It separates two worlds. I leave the limited world

And enter Boundlessness, through total melting

The whole being is calm - a constant sparkle...

 

I move in direct contact with life, in a permanent present.

 

Ilie Cioara wrote 16 books describing the practice of Self-knowing using all-encompassing Attention. Like Ramana Maharshi or Krishnamurti, his is a simple message of discovering our inner divine nature through the silence of the mind.

The Silence of the Mind is the first in a tetralogy by Ilie Cioara to be published by O Books. Soon to follow: The Wondrous Journey into the Depth of Our Being, Life is Eternal Newness and I Am Boundlessness.
