Speech and Silence: Listening for Liberation from Suffering

Mindful speech is a component of Buddhist ethical training while noble silence is often observed on a Buddhist meditation retreat. Balancing the two modes of speech and silence is the skilful art of listening, that is said to enable one to attain liberation from suffering in the in-between state (in Tibetan, bar.do) of death and rebirth in the famous Tibetan Book of the Dead (or more accurately as Liberation through Listening in the Bar.do state). How to listen differently and thereby respond in speech differently in our daily life is the theme of this talk.
