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.

Looking for the Truth

When you’re centered, when you concentrate, when you pray, when you chant the name of God, that moment is between you and God. Christ said, “If you want to pray, don’t make it a show. Run to the darkest corner where you and God, your Father, are alone… then converse with the Divine.” And this corner is your heart, where you can be quiet. The mind is not quiet, the mind is always thinking. You will make it quiet by chanting. When, through chanting, you train the mind to go inside your heart, in that deep quietness, you will realize that God is sitting there. You will realize it, not because you know it in the mind, not because you have read it, but because you will feel it.
We are all searching for the Truth. Of course, people will go left and right looking for the Truth. Until one finds their spiritual path, one is never satisfied with where they are. It’s like a train which is traveling but does not know its destination. People go left and right, it’s the same with this train. But when one knows the destination, one goes directly to thisdestination. When one knows one’s path, one goes directly. Take this path and just go and realize yourself.
