Mauna is the Sanskrit word for silence.
The practice of mauna often takes the form of periods of controlled speech. Such sustained silence is considered essential in the yogic tradition, as the understanding of that which is beyond words can only come from direct experience. According to the yogic text, the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, mauna is about training our minds, not just our mouths, to be silent. It is deeply transformative because it helps us quiet our thoughts and, more importantly, acknowledge the background of Stillness that is our True Nature.
