Heart Talk Is All Talk

Somerset Maugham, a well-known English author, was on a visit to Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi.

He also went to see Maj. Chadwick in his room and there he suddenly became unconscious.

Maj. Chadwick requested Sri Bhagavan to see him.

Sri Bhagavan went into the room, took a seat and gazed on Mr. Maugham.

Mr. Maugham regained his senses and saluted Sri Bhagavan.

They remained silent and sat facing each other for nearly an hour.

Mr Maugham attempted to ask questions of Sri Bhagavan but did not (or could not) speak.

Maj.Chadwick encouraged him to ask.

Sri Bhagavan said, “All finished. Heart-talk is all talk. All talk must end in silence only.”

They smiled and Sri Bhagavan left the room.

(From Talk 550 in “Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi).
