THE WORD REALLY HEARD AS IT IS IN SILENCE
He completed his work, but gives the Word of his work to the world during his manifestation, because this is the period when the results of his work manifest on earth. His work was essentially to remove the sanskaric obstacles in the mind to hear the Original Word, and this Word is transferred down through seven levels of human consciousness and seven levels of evolutionary consciousness. On the seventh level of human consciousness, the gross world, the Word becomes his Name.
The ultimate purpose of human consciousness is to hear the Word, but that Word is not heard until the sound of gross, subtle and mental creation disappears. The annihilation of sanskaras produces the annihilation of sound, and only when the annihilation of all sound is achieved, in the state of Nirvan, is the Word really heard as it is in silence.
That infinite Word, which is an infinite thought, can only be heard in a state of infinite silence. Nirvan is that vacuum in which all sound disappears, and Nirvikalp is the divine state in which the Infinite Mind thinks the Infinite Thought, "I am God," in infinite silence.
