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 incarnation of Lord Vishnu

Sri Swami Vishwananda is talking about the spiritual path and the incarnations of Vishnu. He is explaining to us why the Lord incarnates from time to time.

We see in this world nowadays, that only few people really achieve a spiritual life. So, the Lord incarnates from time to time- many times, not only ten times or one time, but whenever it's needed, He would come. It´s said: "
“Yada yada hi dharmasya glanirbhavati bharata
Abhyutthanamadharmasya tadatmanam srjamyaham.”, which means:
“Whenever there is a decline in Dharma- whenever human being are moving away from the path- whenever human being are getting entangle by all the negativity, the Lord will come to the rescue”. He will take many forms. It is said, the Lord has taken so many forms that He Himself doesn't know! This is the first thing in the Vedas that is said. He has taken so many incarnations, that one is not able to write all about them. But in all these incarnations that he had taken, we consider ten as His main incarnations, which are called Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narashima, Vamana, Dasharam, Ram, Krishna, Balaram, Kalki- Avatar. This are the ten main Avataras, that the Lord had manifested Himself. So look at these ten incarnations deeply and analyse them.

Is the Kalki Avatar a future Incarnation of Vishnu or has He already lived?

The Kalki Avatar is a future incarnation of Vishnu. He is His incarnation of the Kali age.

His arrival is already mentioned in the Srimad Bhagavatam
