en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 02 Oct 2018
A moving, literary, far-ranging meditation on the deep joys of confronting oneself through silence by a Spanish priest and Zen disciple.
If silence is increasingly becoming a stranger to us, one man set out to become its intimate: Pablo d'Ors, a Catholic priest whose life was changed by Zen meditation. Exploring silence means abandoning the stress of daily life and facing our emotional numbness, dissatisfaction, and most of all, the fear of being alive. "We live, yes," writes d'Ors, "but too often we are dead."
With disarming honesty and directness, as well as a striking clarity of language, d'Ors shares his struggles as a beginning meditator: the tedium, restlessness, and distraction. But, persevering, the author discovers not only a deep peace and understanding of his true nature, but also that silence, rather than being a retreat from life, offers us an intense engagement with life just as it is. Imbued with a rare beauty, Biography of Silence shows us the deep joy of silence that is available to us all.
