What are the advantages of Mouna or the vow of silence? Should I also observe?

Observe Mouna for a couple of hours daily at any time that suits you. Try to speak little
at other times. Avoid unnecessary conversations. Don’t talk harsh words and obscene language.
Talk sweetly and gently. You must have perfect control over speech. Control over speech means
control of mind. The organ of speech, Vak Indriya, is a great distractor of the mind. Mouna
gives you peace. It removes anxieties and quarrels. It develops your will power. It conserves
energy. It reduces the force of Sankalpa or the thought-current.

From "May I answer that" by Swami Sivananda (1987-1963). More Informations on Swami Sivananda: on the Website of Divine Life Society, Photographs of Swami Sivananda, German Pages on Swami Sivananda
