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 Mrityumbageshwar Shiva Lingam

Sri Swami Vishwananda speaks about a certain Shivalingam that one can see and venerate in His Temple Altar in Center Springen: This Shivalingam has been blessed by Mahavatar Babaji. Mahavatar has given it the name Mrityumbageshwar. The meaning is “the one who removes all suffering and inspires people to realize the Divine.” The lingam has been blessed with great healing energy. Whoever pours water over this Shivalingam while reciting eleven times the mrityumjaya mantra can be healed by drinking the water.

Myrityumjaya Mantra: Tryambakam yajamahe sugamdim pushtivardanamurvu rukiamiva bhandhanat mrityor mukshiya mamritat
This Shivalingam is very special because Mahavatar Babaji has blessed it with the same energy as the jyotirlingams in India. Shiva appeared and manifested eleven lingams in eleven places to leave those places sacred.

When you come here (temple at Springen) you may pour water over the Shivalingam and then keep it in a container and drink it if you are ill, and you will get cured. Have faith in it. When you place flowers on the Shivalingam, you receive the blessings of the Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and beauty. Wealth means not only material wealth but also spiritual wealth which is the most important of all. The worship of Lakshmi and the Shivalingam together is in accordance with the Shatras. Mahavatar Babaji has said the water from this lingam can even transmute death and give back life.
