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.

Christ is continously born inside of you

Here is another excerpt from Sri Swami Vishwananda's Christmas speech on 25th December 2008

Sri Swami Vishwananda:
So…For me, with the years you understand the deeper meaning of Christmas, you know? It’s not just a festival that you go to Churches just to… they all like to go to the Churches for midnight mass or I have been to Bhajans singing. It’s not about that, you know? It’s true that Christ has been born probably some 2000 years plus. It’s about celebrating. Because He brought something new to the world, which is forgiveness, Love. Many Avatars have come.

They all have brought Love, but the Love was not really forgiving. Many Saints have come, prophets have come, but the Love was just “Yes, I love you”, but there was always a condition to the Love. And also if you did something wrong to them, you would get back what is wrong. But what He brought is this forgiveness.

That’s why in the prayer they keep reminding of the forgiveness of forgiving what you have done wrong, forgiveness of yourself actually.

You yourself forgive. It’s not about God forgiving you, but you yourself forgive yourself. And focus on the Love that you carry inside of you.

And Christ is born- Yes.

It’s nice outside to celebrate Him, but He is born inside each one of us.

And this rebirth is not only because of Christmas time.

He is born continuously in each cell of your body.

By the way we also sang the song on tuesday together with Dharmananda, after the concert with Anubhab.
It was a nice mixture between Christan Christmas songs and Indian Music and we really enjoyed to be part of this spontanous music experiment.
Afterwards some of the Residents and guests performed also a Cover version of the famous world hit "We are the world" by Michael Jackson and various other artists like Bruce Springesteen or Tina Turner.
Merry Christmas and lot's of Love to everyone!
