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.

Lord Vishnu comes in different forms

Today Sri Swami Vishwananda is telling us more about the manifestations of Sri Vishnu.

So, I have explained how the Lord has manifested Himself throughout different times and also about each incarnation of Him. Among the ten main incarnations, not all of them are considered to be a full incarnation of the Lord. Only three:, which are Narashima, who is sitting there, Rama and Krishna. All the others are semi-incarnations, Nara Hari Roopa.

So... Narshingadev is considered to be the fourth incarnation of Narayana. To understand this incarnation of Narayana, we have to really look at the first four incarnations of Narayana. The first three are Matsya, Kurma and Varaha. The first incarnation one is Matsya Avatar, the second incarnation is Kurma and the third incarnation Varaha - Matsya, Kurma, Varaha. So the first incarnation was a fish, the second one a turtle and the third one was a boar. The fourth one was Narashima, the fifth one was the dwarf. Then the sixth one was Parasurama, then Rama, Krishna and so on.
