About this Blog

This Blog is a collection of excerpts from talks given by Sri Swami Vishwananda. Please note that this Blog does not focus on dates, background and the exact original way of how Swamiji delivered the speech. We edit the talks slightly, presenting them in a kind of “poetic” format. This means we choose certain paragraphs from a talk which reflect a particular theme.
Read them as pieces of Divine Wisdom, meditate upon the words and just feel how Swamiji is addressing you with His words.

Awakening Divine Love

Jai Gurudev everybody. As you are all aware, human life has a purpose. As you know, that purpose is to realize the greatest goal, which is the true self, which is love. This love seems far away to the mind, and sometimes even inaccessible, but actually it is close. As you all know, you are an incarnation of love, you are part of the divine. To attain this divine love, to attain this blissfulness again, to become satchitananda—this is what we are all trying to become. In reality, you are that already. It’s just that you don’t let it out. You like the love on the outside, you think it’s easy, but after some time you say, “headache.” As you know, this love is eternal. This love is waiting to be awakened deep within you. This love you have been carrying for many lifetimes. Firstly, to have the opportunity, to have the grace of being spiritual, of being on the spiritual path, is itself an attribute of this divine love. Everybody is searching, but it’s only when this love comes to the point of sprouting out and growing and maturing that one realizes oneself—realizes this love. The question comes to the mind, “Why every time we come back do we have to do the same thing all the time? If we have already realized this love, if we have already attained this love, why don’t we have it now?” To understand this, look at a child. A child just goes along with the daily routine. It doesn’t bother to think how things have to be. We older ones, we like questioning things; We like to doubt things; We like to put some spice into it. Then, when we have put too much spice into something, the path, the flavor, has changed—then it’s too hot. This pure love, this divine love is present at all times.
