A Study in Silence

Most of my creative inspiration comes from the literature I read, the music I listen to, and the great works of the masters of art. At this point, I’d like to relate a story I read: Once upon a time, a student asked his (Self-realized) master, ‘What is the First Principle’? The master said nothing. The student asked a second time. Stony silence followed. When the student asked a third time, the master said, ‘If I told you what the First Principle was it would become the second principle.’ At this point, the student realizes the first principle and, of course, becomes Self-realized himself. Taking cue from this story, sometime around September/October 2012, I decided to curate a series of my images with this theme, and exhibit them. What follows is a series I called ‘A Study in Silence’ which went on exhibition in Bangalore on the 20th and 21st of October 2012.

  1. Silence is one of my favorite subject! I love the story you blogged and the pictures taken. The one that work the best for me, on the subject of silence, are the first three and the last one. Good job!!
