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.

Life is Divine

Here an excerpt from Sri Swami Vishwananda's Pre-Darshan Speech in Finnland on August 8th 2009:

Life is Divine. How many know what life is? How many know that it’s Divine? How many people know how precious life is? Once you realize what life is, you will see life completely different. Life is not just working, eating, sleeping. That’s what people think very often. People enslave themselves in work, enslave themselves in eating. Most of the time they don’t eat properly. They enslave themselves in just sleeping. Life goes on. When the time comes for their depart, they will realize “Oops, I have missed something.” When they look back how many opportunities they had of realizing the beauty of life, they regret. Because they realize how many opportunities have come on their way, where they can realize themselves, where they can realize how great this gift of life is that God has given. And yet they have wasted it.

Again I ask the question: What is life? (Someone: Love) That’s it! Divine is far away. For the mind to understand the Divine, it’s very difficult. Until you have really cleansed the mind from thinking, until you have really purified the mind completely, the Divine is quite difficult to understand. Life is love. And love of course is Divine. Love is God. But the feeling of love, that’s what life is about. To realize this great love. Not just partial love. Not that today I say “I love you” and tomorrow “Who is that person?” Not that love. But just love which is beyond expression. Love which is unconditional, which is in everything around you. That’s what love is.
