In the Sphere of Silence
By Dato’ Vijay Eswaran
Vijay Eswaran is a highly acclaimed author whose first book, ‘In the Sphere of Silence’ has been translated into several languages and reviewed widely in different parts of the world.
Vijay Eswaran shares the practice of what he has termed as the Sphere of Silence through this bestselling book. The Sphere of Silence is a modern-day tool for achieving success and is the secret behind his own enduring success. Vijay has synthesized the tool from ancient wisdom, stemming from the Vedic concept of practicing silence. It is not oriented to any one religion. Silence is accepted universally and practiced by almost all faiths on the planet.
Sixty minutes in the Sphere of Silence every day enables us to slow down and take stock of where we are and where we are headed. The practice is made up of three paths-duty, knowledge and devotion. It sets into motion the liberation of our mind and working on it is, to the mind, what physical exercises are to the body-a mechanism for fitness.
Many of us have vague notions of what we want to do, but very few of us set targets which are realistic, and do what it takes to meet them. The Sphere of Silence is a tool which gives us the ability to address our goals and do much more, by showing us a way to go down to the fundamentals of our self. “If you don't know who you are, you don't know where you are going,” says Vijay Eswaran, author of the book In the Sphere of Silence . Hence, the quest must begin with discovering who we are first and then knowing where to go and how.
This path of self-discovery over the years led Vijay Eswaran to devise this simple but unique methodology that combines ancient wisdom with modern everyday practicality. It stems from the ancient Hindu concept, especially from yogic traditions, of practicing mouna (silence), a concept that finds resonance in all religions and philosophies of the world .
The Sphere of Silence applies to any field of endeavour, but it is especially effective in the arena of management and leadership.
The book is available in other languages including German, Farsi and Bahasa Indonesia, with editions in other languages in the pipeline.
