When the Divine Name of Shri Hari is there to be chanted, observing the vow of silence is fruitless.

Vaishnava Samhita: "Shrinatha Darshanam" Vol II Book 4 Chp 14 Shloka 28, 29, 30

 

वर्धते तत्परं ज्ञानं निःसङ्गेनैव योगिनाम्

किन्तु प्रवर्धते भक्तिः सत्सङ्गेनैव माधवे

सत्सङ्गमे तु संप्राप्ते निःसङ्गेन च किं सुखं

हरिनाम्नि स्थिते दिव्ये वृथा मौनव्रतं सताम्

हरिप्रसादेन संप्राप्ते नरा दुर्भाग्यशालिनः

उपवासं प्रकुर्वन्ति चित्तशुद्ध्यै दृढव्रताः

 

 

 

Vardhate Tatparam Gyaanam Nihsangenaiva Yoginaam

Kintu Pravardhate Bhaktih Satsangenaiva Maadhave

Satsangame Tu Sampraapte Nihsangena Cha Kim Sukham

Harinaamni Sthite Divye Vruthaa Maunavratam Sataam

Hariprasaadena Sampraapte Naraa Durbhaagyashaalinah

Upavaasam Prakurvanti Chittashuddhyai Drudhavrataah

 

The wisdom of the unknown grows in solitude in the case of the sanyasis. But Krishna-bhakti grows only in the association of saints and sadhus.

 

When one is fortunate to mingle in the association of the noble devotees (sadhu – sanga), then what pleasure is left in solitude? When the Divine Name of Shri Hari is there to be chanted, observing the vow of silence is fruitless. Even when Shri Hari's prasada (the remnants of the offerings made to the Lord), is available, some unfortunate men subject themselves to fasting in order to obtain purity of mind.
