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.

Finding inner happiness

For mankind it doesn’t mean just to express outer happiness, but to find inner happiness, which is deep within the Self. The pleasure towards the outside, or the desire in the outside never finishes – because if one has a desire about something there will also be the want. And the want of mankind never finishes. For example: if you want money, you will start a business, don’t you? You may start anything that will make you gain more money. The want of money will make you want more – so it will never finish - because you will want to pay your employees, you will want to have to expand your company. This is a result of running away from the Self. It doesn’t mean that you should stop working and sit around. It’s good to work, it’s important that you do your duty in life. But focus on what you have come here to do –what is the purpose of your incarnation here? To amass lots of wealth - or to rediscover yourself?
