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.

Becoming pure like a clean river

In the year 2007 Sri Swami Vishwananda told us the following story about seeing no difference in "good" (clean water) and "bad"( flithy water)

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
Once somebody asked a great Saint:”Tell me, how will I become like you?” The Saint who was very dirty- you know, it was a sadhu and you know how dirty the the sadhus in India are.
So the sadhu looked at him, how he is dressed nicely and he turned to the river and said:”Do you see these two rivers, passing by there?”
The one river was filthy dirty and the other one was very pure, like Ganga- no, Ganga is not that clean, anyway... like a swiss river, you know! Very clear water!
So, the Saint looked at him and said:”When these both river become alike, then you come to me!”

Watch here a nice video of a Satsang with Sri Swami Vishwananda on the topic "Purity of Love", just feel His Divine presence and meditate on His pearls of wisdom:
