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.

Story about Rama and Lakshmana

Once Rama and Laksamana were passing by a lake and as they passed by the lake, they noticed a crow.

This crow always flew to the lake, trying to drink water, but the moment it came nearer to the lake, it looked at the water and flew back again.

Lakshmana asked Rama “Tell me my Lord why does this bird always go to the lake to try to drink water, but it doesn’t drink any water?

So Rama said to Lakshmana “This crow is a great devotee- It doesn’t drink any water, because it is scared of not reciting the name of God.

So even it’s throat is very thirsty and drying, but yet it would not let go of the name of God. So if a bird can do that human can do also better, isn’t it?
