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.

The Sadguru

Often there is a question that we all ask ourselves: “Who is our Sadguru?” Isn’t it a good question? Some lucky person know and some, who are to be lucky are waiting to know. This search actually is not only in one life, but for many lives. We search always for our Sadguru, because it’s only the Sadguru, who will lead us out of this illusion. Only the Sadguru can give us a blessing and guide us and make us realise our true Self. But to find the Sadguru is very often difficult. We go through many ups and downs. Keep searching, thinking one will find the Sadguru. We pray to God – “God send my Sadguru”. But yet very often, when the Sadguru is in front of the person, they don’t know it, because in the mind of the person, how they fashion a Guru is completely different to how the Sadguru is in reality. The same when we look at Mahavatar Babaji. We have a beautiful murti, a beautiful deity here. In our mind we have an image of the Jagad Guru, but yet I tell you: He is not like that. When we look at Him, He is strict. He is strict, when he has to be strict, but He is the personification of calmness. He is all the time - no matter what- always calm. And this is the quality of a Sadguru.
