“Not all of us are called to be hermits, but all of us need enough silence and solitude in our lives to enable the deeper voice of our own self to be heard at least occasionally. “

– Thomas Merton

In the Varāha Purāṇa it is said:

(from Amnaya Sutra of Srila Bhaktivinode)

sarve nityāḥ śāśvatāś ca devād yasya parātmanaḥ
heyopadeya-rahitāḥ naiva prakṛtijāḥ kvacit

“All the varied expansions of the Personality of Godhead are transcendental and eternal, and all of them repeatedly descend to all the different universes of the material creation. Their bodies, composed of eternity, bliss, and knowledge, are everlasting. There is no chance of their decaying, for they are not creations of the material world. Their forms are concentrated spiritual existence, always complete with all spiritual qualities and devoid of material contamination.”*
