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 chamaleon or how God is taking different forms

Today another inspiring story by Sri Swami Vishwananda:
Once there where three friends, who were arguing. They knew on this tree, there was a chameleon. So one of them said the chameleon is green. The other one said "No, no, it’s not green, it’s red. " Then the third one said "No, it’s brown. "So they were busy fighting with each other about that. After a while one of them said “Let’s go and ask this saint who is sitting under this tree”. So, they went and asked him saying “My dear holy man this chameleon is green”. Then he said “Yes”. The second one said “No, no, no, no, no, it’s red”. He said “Yes”. And the other one said “No, no, no, no, no it’s brown”. Again he said “Yes”. Of course they were all shocked thatb he always said “Yes”. Then he explained to them: “It’s true- all the colors that you said. Why? Because a chameleon changes colors according to where it is sitting.” Such is the Divine also. He will always come the way you call Him.

So if you call Him with a form, He will take that form, because He is not bind by any limitation of the mind. He can manifest Himself, the way you call Him. You call Him as Jesus, He will come as Jesus, you call Him Krishna, He will come as Krishna. It’s not that you call Him as Jesus and He will appear as Narshinga Dev in front of you, you know? You will never believe in Him. It’s the same thing opposite . When somebody believes in Krishna, and He appeared as Jesus it would be strange, no?
