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.

Darshan of the Divine

During his last Darshan on October the third 2009 Sri Swami Vishwananda gave answer to an interesting question:

Last week somebody asked “Swamiji, have you ever seen God?” The answer is Yes, not only one time, but actually everyday. Everyday I see the Divine Mother and I see God in all beings which breathe, because He is inside of them. So the Darshan of the Divine is ever present. If you have the eyes to see that, you will see. That’s what Christ said no? Where does the multitude of beings all around come from? Does it not come from God? And where are they all going? They are going towards God. Some say we are doomed, which I don’t believe at all. We make ourselves doomed. We make ourselves being miserable. When we are far away from the light, we are in darkness. We have the choice: If you want to be in the light, you will see the light. But if you refuse to see the light , don’t complain that you are not seeing the light. If you sit in the dark room and say “It’s dark, it’s dark” and you don’t want to move to the next room, where there is light, then why do you complain? So the same thing: the Divine is ever present. If you want to see the Divine, you will see, it but you have to be sincere in your want. Many people say” Yes, Swamiji I want to see the Divine, but… it’s difficult.” Well, just by knowing that the Divine is ever present, you will have the Darshan of the Divine. lLke I said once: It's not by seeing a light, that you call that light the Divine. It’s good if He comes in the form of the light. Be happy about it. But yet the light has a limit. The Ultimate doesn’t have a limit. You are breathing the Ultimate. You are living in the Ultimate. You are part of the Ultimate and this is the real Darshan of the Divine. There is no use looking for something which has a limit. It is inside of you. So: Yes, everyday you have Darshan of the Divine with each person that you meet, each work that you are doing, you are serving the Divine and if you just say to yourself “Yes, I see the Divine Mother everyday in every being”, you will see the Divine Mother in every being.
