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 Sadhu or why we never should judge

Before the Darshan on Friday the 18th September, Sri Swami Vishwananda told us the Story about a Sadhu: There was once a great Sadhu in a great Divine ecstasy. He fell down in the middle of the road. He was in Samadhi. A few hours later, a thief was passing by. As the thief was passing by, he saw the Sadhu on the road and he said to himself “This must be a thief, that last night had been stealing. Now he is tired, he is just resting. The policemen will come and get him. “ Then he went away. Next came a drunkard. He saw the Sadhu lying down and said “Oh you fell down. You drunk too much. Look at me, I am still standing.” He went his way. Third came another Sadhu. When this Sadhu saw the other Sadhu in great Samadhi, he knew that he was in Samadhi. He sat down near him and started pressing his legs. This shows how our mind functions. We will always see what we have inside of ourselves. Christ has said “Don’t judge your brothers. Don’t try to remove the speck of your brothers, the splinter in the eyes of your brother, when you have a big pole in your eyes.”
