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.

Matsya- The first incarnation of Lord Vishnu

Sri Swami Vishwanda is talking about the first incarnation of Sri Vishnu:
So, let´s analyse the first incarnation. It is said, that to safe the Vedas, the Lord manifested Himself as the fish-Avatar, which is Matsya to safe the world from the illusion. You see- a similar story is in the Bible also, about the great delusion, where...It was Noah, isn´t it? Yeah, Noah´s Arc. It's so similar these two stories, but they don't mean the same. You can say that they have taken the story from the Vedas and changed it into Noah's Arc, because it's so similar. So the first one is just to safe the Vedas.
