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 spark of Divine Love

Today Swami Vishwananda tells you a story about Divine Love: Once a Master, a guru, was traveling. On the journey they were tired, so they stopped to relax a little bit. One of the disciples said, “Master, you always talk about love. You always say that love is eternal, that love is the only thing that we have to attain, but it seems that we take birth, we die, and we don’t realize this love. Where is this love?”So the master kept quiet for awhile. By his side there was a stone. He pulled the stone next to him, and he took another stone from the river. He started tapping both stones, the one from the river and the one from the land. What happened after some time? A spark! Fire came.The same stone that was in the water, and the same stone that was on the land, they each have the spark. Even if the one from the water has stayed in the water for centuries, it can still produce a spark. So it is the same with man. No matter how many times you take birth, how many incarnations you will have, this spark of divine love is ever with you. You have to want to let it out. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s just waiting—and for it to come out, you have to want it; you have to let it out.
