    Never has a book so clearly and unequivocally told me that all is well and there is no room for mistakes or regrets here. No room for freewill. and no need for fretful action. The immediacy and urgency with which the book exhorts to be free has transformed my tyrannical mind forever. It has filled me with a fresh burst of hope. Can’t wait to reread and feel the vibrations that Robert Adams has left in these pages. ‘Silence of the heart’ is not a book, it’s an experience.

    Any time and anywhere you can find the words of Robert Adams, I would advise you to do everything in your power to get as close as possible and dive in. Robert went to India to meet Ramana Maharshi as a teenager and has given us a very clear vision into the Knowledge of the Self through the teaching of Truth which lives within us all. He is so utterly pedestrian and profound in almost every utterance. Best of all the Western teachers I have found.

    They say this is the last book you will ever read.. and I didn’t get it at that time .. but now, after finishing it.. I can understand why! I am reading it for the second time now... and I am loving the “silence” between the words..... 😊

    With the lack of editing aside, this was a well timed book for me. I feel this book can be easily confusing if one was not well versed in 'enlightenment speak/lingo' or have not read others of this genre: non-duality or advaita vedanta. It was well timed for me because it was a nudge in the direction of actual spiritual practise of stilling the mind and self inquiry. It brought clarity to the genre which is a rare trait. The other book which was as this clear for me was 'Happiness beyond Thought With the lack of editing aside, this was a well timed book for me.

The other book which was as this clear for me was 'Happiness beyond Thought' by Gary Weber. Desire enlightenment, still the mind through investigating who you really are (is the concept of 'I' also a thought which thus has no basis of reality to it as all thoughts are conceptual?), let things be as they are and don't internally react to the world. A pivotally monumental book and pleasure to read. Thank you Robert Adams.

    The Nectar of Non-Duality. “So there are two ways of seeing this world. One is maya, the grand illusion. You want nothing to do with this. This is what creates problems. This appears to create animosity, sorrow. But then there is the real world. The world of the Self. The world of Bliss. The world of total joy, unalloyed peace and happiness. This is what you really are. This is your real nature, your swarupa. You have always been this and you will always be this. Forget about the past.

Have total faith, total joy, in yourself. Only when you can understand yourself as All Pervading Consciousness can you possibly understand that all the universe is an emanation of your mind. Everything that you see comes out of you. You are the Creator. You are the God. You are the Avatar, the Atman. All the Gods that you've heard of, the Buddha, Krishna, Jehovah, Allah, they're all you. You are That. You are nothing else but That. You've always been That. Tat Tvam Asi. This is you.” ― Robert Adams, Silence of the Heart: Dialogues with Robert Adams

    The Ramana Maharshi of The West, Robert Adams dialogue is true account of an Enlightened Brahman. If one can invest one's time in reading or listening to his lectures one will realise his/her true Self. I am extremely impressed with this effortless, choiceless Pure Awareness and His enlightenened speech will enlighten many.

    One of a kind and the only book after Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now that I decided to read again. You have no idea how deeply touching this book is until you read it. I have read many spiritual books and I can say with confidence that Silence of the Heart is the one that penetrates your heart the deepest and most effectively!

    The ego felt a bit big for someone in the know. On the other hand, there was a good deal of love in the book

    Don't read this book lightly for it will change your life forever. It's the best treatment of Advaita Vendanta for Westerners I have ever seen. Don't read this book lightly for it will change your life forever. It's the best treatment of Advaita Vendanta for Westerners I have ever seen.

    I haven't yet finished the book, but something mandated that I wrote a review right away. I know I'll rate this book 5 stars anyway. There are only a handful texts that imparts the spiritual discourse from a state direct experience. This is one. If you have a strong abidance in Advaita-Vedanta, you wouldn't want to waste your time, looking elsewhere. The remarkable thing about some of these texts (such as I AM THAT of Nisargadatta Maharaj, Who Am I? of Ramana Maharshi, Death Must Die of Sri Anan I haven't yet finished the book, but something mandated that I wrote a review right away. I know I'll rate this book 5 stars anyway. There are only a handful texts that imparts the spiritual discourse from a state direct experience. This is one. If you have a strong abidance in Advaita-Vedanta, you wouldn't want to waste your time, looking elsewhere. The remarkable thing about some of these texts (such as I AM THAT of Nisargadatta Maharaj, Who Am I? of Ramana Maharshi, Death Must Die of Sri Anandmayee Ma, Teachings of Sri Brahmajna Ma, Miracle of Love on the Grace of Been Karoli Baba) are books that found their into our world, through the devotees. The Sage never has to achieve anything — Silence of the Heart is their mastery and accomplishment. Robert Adams's discourses are really valuable for modern day seekers. They too, have come, from a state of direct experience, are hard hitting and not easy for the mind to digest. If I'm overcome by a positive, uplifting and an almost Grace that moves me, while reading a spiritual text, that means I've directly experienced it. Can the same always be said for most of the intelligent content our ego uses us, to seek? That's why I've never felt the need to deeply engage in a lot of spiritual books. The right ones find us. Robert's simplicity and profound need to stay in satsang, is what I (laughs) can really identify with. He didn't believe in any other Satsang other than Silence, just like Ramana Maharshi. He didn't believe in writing books, because there was nothing that needed to be said. And yet, we have this book available to us, with the Grace bestowed on those who found enrichment through their Satsang with Robert. At 13% in the book, we read about the difference between Self Enquiry and other forms of Sadhana (Yoga, Meditation etc) — this bit is exemplary. Other profound realization was how all that keeps us human (I thoughts) also keeps us from realization. Through iterations, the discourse remind us to practice Self Enquiry, trace the I Thought to the Source, let it dissolve in the Universal Consciousness, where only the real "I" — the Self, God, will prevail. Don't worry about functioning or rendering your task in the World. Try to leave it alone and trust that the work that the body or the illusory ''I'' that has come here to do, will be attained. We were always taken care of, in our mother's womb — what qualms we've to know we won't be taken care, if we just give into Grace, and allow ourselves to be moved in life by Life, by Consciousness. When the Consciousness becomes Aware of Itself, it knows Reality. (I'll share an excerpt before I continue my reading.... and will update the review if I've something useful to add.) The fastest way to realization is to keep silent. Yet you have to know why you are keeping silent. This is why you can't tell this to the average person. If a person has no inkling of advaita vedanta, you can't say, "Keep silent." For then it means just to be quiet. They don't realize it means to go deep, deep, deep within to that place where Absolute Reality lives, and that's the Silence.
