“Sitting Silent” was not easy at the beginning. There was an alarming sound pollution outside. Tit-tat, pop-pop, clattering and banging sound penetrates from the thick wall, other smaller sounds also pry from ventilations. Some of beginners said that they tried to concentrate but failed because of outer sound pollution, that was too much!
Just I said, “What about Inner Sound Pollution?” Have you ever peeped how big sound pollution is there inside/in you? How noisy your mind is. Mind is like an ocean from where thought bubbles evaporate, too much in number and generates irritating sound. So you concentrate inside/in you first. First we will try to reduce Inner Sound Pollution.
