Summary/Abstract: The topic of presentation is life and teachings of three less known, but important, modern mystics: Russian Sufi Irina Tweedie (1907-1999), and two non-confessional mystics: Indian U.G. Krishnamurti (1918-2007), and Romanian Ilie Cioara (1916-2004). It shows that method of permanent, silent contemplation, being non-sectarian, is essence of spiritual life. It gives lively alternative for both religious and secular lives which divide people into different and for many reasons conflicting approaches. It shows that essence of spiritual life is what lies beyond words, in silence.
