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.

Experiencing God

Sri Swami Vishwananda is talking about one of the greatest experiences that one can have- The experience with the Divine.

To experience God we should love. This is the main experience of it. The definition of God? Love!

Very often people think, when they feel God, they will think “Oh something marvelous, something great”… whatever. But each one has their own way of feeling God. For some the Divine will express itself as complete joy, but for some the Divine will express Itself as separation. For some it is joy just to be in love with Him and just to know that He is there. Actually you can describe every feeling as coming from the Divine. But which is the right feeling? Everybody has his own. And each person is on a different level, each person vibrates on a different level of vibration, where they can feel the Divine in their way.

For somebody who is in the world, the Divine will express Itself in the worldly way. For somebody, who is on the spiritual path, God will express Itself in a spiritual way. But when somebody is completely surrendered to the Divine, the Divine also will surrender complete to that person. This awakening of this cosmic love within oneself can be in a painful way, in a joyful way, but one who is in the spiritual world, one who surrenders completely to the Divine will not question the Divine, but will happily accept it. When one is completely surrendered to the Divine, one doesn't has their own will into it. But when one has their own will, then this pride and ego are still workingand this will make one unhappy. But this is also a feeling that you can express to the Divine.
