Truth can not be spoken in words. All the saints, masters, for the ages have been telling that we can not say even a bit of truth to you through words. One of the most interesting things is, these masters are generally the persons who talk the most. It means, they talk even though they know that they cannot speak truth.
Once asked about this, Osho gave very beautiful example of Indian Drums. He said, that the drums are tuned with the help of a hammer. If you do not use hammer to tune the drums, there is no possibility that they will make a good sound. At the same time, you should drop hammer once the tuning is done. Osho says, so is with the words. They can not give you the truth but they can take you to the position at which you will feel the importance of wordlessness. Then you can easily get glimpse of the truth.
So, do not play the drums with hammer, but at least, for tuning them, you will need one.
