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.

Searching for happiness

We are always on a search. A search of who we are; a search of what we are here for. Many times this clicks in your mind, and you ask yourself, “Am I just an incarnation of man born here on Earth?”
You see, this search can last for years and years. You can go around the world, looking for what is deep, to find what will really satisfy you. But, because humans always desire new things, you enjoy whatever you have for some time and then the desire disappears, and then afterwards you desire something else. Humans are always desiring, and you will keep on desiring as long as you desire material things. One desire will lead you to another, but do you think this is really the incarnation of mankind? Come on…No.
Human beings are said to be Satchitananda. This is a Sanskrit word. Sat means Existence; Chit, the Consciousness; and Ananda is Bliss. Everybody wants bliss, everybody wants to be happy. But if you really, really want to be happy, then you have to be sincere and truthful towards yourself. Then you can ask God, “Lord, give me happiness.” And do you think he will refuse you? Him not! He will give it to you. But, it is upon you to maintain the happiness. It is upon you to keep it and help it grow.
