The Healing of Suffering

Punta de Vacas, May 4, 1969

Silo on the 4th of May, 1969, in Punta de Vacas

This is Silo's first public expression of his ideas. In poetic language, he explains that the most important knowledge for living ("true wisdom") is not the same as the knowldge found in books—knowledge of universal laws or things of that nature—but is a question of inner experience. The most important knowledge for living is related to comprehending suffering and how to surpass it.
