In the Silence of the Heart

01 In the Silence of the Heart

“God speaks in the silence of the heart.
Listening is the beginning of prayer.”
(Mother Teresa)

This picture is the first of a triptych showing a Sikh devotee taking a deep and praying in the Immortal Nectar of the Harmandir Sahib, the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the holiest city in Sikhism located in the Indian state of Punjab.
The temple is surrounded by a large Sarovar which is a Punjabi terms used for a manmade lake.
It is known as the AmritSar, the Lake of Holy Water or the Immortal Nectar.
Like many devotees who visit this shrine this young man is bathing in the pool as the Sikhs believe that spiritual and worldly benefits are gained by immersing in the holy waters of this Sarovar.
